Prinsen Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We recently stayed at this hotel when we were in the city for a conference and sightseeing. Whilst it is not located right in the centre it is a short tram ride from the Central station and is staffed by friendly people. My wife was impressed by the room and the breakfast provided every morning. I would highly rate this hotel.

With 50000 people Attending a Conference In Amsterdam over the week We Visited, it was extremely difficult to Find suitable accomodation. A boutique hotel called the Prinsen was selected. It is well located in Amsterdam and close to the hop on off bus and tram transports. The Hotel was Clean and quaint and the breakfast was European and very adequate. The Photos on the internet of the bedrooms were less than correct. In fact I had to take turns with my wife when getting up and using the bathroom as there was only enough room For one To Move from The bed and then in the bathroom. In fact one of our friends rooms has the shower located in the small cupboard. The Bed was two single mattresses and you tend to sag into The Middle. Thank god it was only for two nights as anymore could not have been accomplished. I understand that European hotels can have small rooms, however when you show a spacious double bedroom on you web site and don't deliver, I think you should be Outed!

We stayed here for several nights and found it an excellent hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, the continental breakfast had a good choice and the hotel itself is situated very close to many attractions, bars etc but you feel safe walking to and fro. The staff were very welcoming with great English. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to explore Amsterdam but need a quiet haven too!

We stayed in Room 25 for 3 nights in July 2017. The room was small but clean and comfortable and we slept well in the bed. The staff were all very good, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a typical European affair, croissants, cereals and a selection of meat and fruit. We found that we had to get down for breakfast early as it got busy after 9.30 or so. The location is perfect, right beside Vondelpark and a short walk from Leidseplein, the Rijksmuseum and some canal tours. The trams run from the top of the street from where you can easily get anywhere in Amsterdam that you want to go. I would happily stay here again.

Introduction: the buildings in Netherlands are narrow and tall. My room was small, but clean. Good breakfast and friendly reception. The hotel is near leidseplein and vondelpark. There is a pretty cat in the hotel

This is more of a boutique hotel, and is located close to the Ruks and Van Gogn museums, as well as the HopOn HopOff Boat, so is in a good location. Also there is plenty of shopping within a leisurely 20 minute walk. The rooms are small but very clean. Breakfast is included. I would recommend this place to anyone who does not wish to spend a bundle near the river cruise port.

We went with 2 other families, and our room was MUCH less comfortable than the other rooms were. Clearly the building has been retrofitted, and our room had a TINY toilet and sink room, and on the other side of the room was a large shower room. No hooks, no ventilation. The breakfast was nice, and some of the staff were nice and helpful. One night clerk was very UNhelpful and put out by our asking for assistance. When we expressed our unhappiness with the room(especially in contrast with our friend's rooms) we were only given the option of moving to a triple room, at a much higher cost. The room was clean, but the beds and pillows were lumpy. Great location, but would not stay there again...

We had our flight cancelled and got a last minute reservation. The hotel room was excelent. And it is very near The Van Gogh museum, the Rijksmuseum and other museums. We got a bus at the airport and arrived smoothly.

Located in quiet area near Vondel Park approx. 1/2 he walk from central Amsterdam. Hotel exterior very attractive, small reception and dining room which overlooks garden area where wild parakeets fly about. Hotel has a cute resident cat but not so happy about its basket being in corner of the dining room !! Lift available to all 4 floors . Rooms are small and compact as with most typically Dutch narrow buildings, difficult for two people to pass in same area. Furnishing is basic one small wardrobe, one straight back chair. comfortable beds with clean linen, rooms -31 and 32 are quite dated and in need of refurbishment Large windows which open fully or vent would be a definite serious hazard with children when fully open ,very high drop to ground level. Our bed had no headboard and was positioned with bedhead next to radiator, the internal struts of radiator were very dirty and dusty .Bed next to wall was only accessible from one side or climb in from bottom but was comfortable with memory foam topper. 24hr reception . no tea /coffee facilities in rooms ,these are available in reception at 2.50 euros per cup and have to be consumed in dining room ,not allowed to take drinks to rooms. Breakfast is good ,self serve buffet style with a selection of fruit and cereal, several different breads , cheese, meat, pate, self serve tea and coffee free with breakfast. Staff are friendly especially the man on reception in evenings and throughout the night ,he is very helpful . Several different cuisine restaurants/cafés in square close to hotel. Central Amsterdam is approx. 1/2 hour walk away. Advise to purchase a hop on, hop off, bus and boat ticket for the Red line route which drops off at stop 10 near hotel and runs frequently on a circular tour of Amsterdam . Seems a bit pricey at 39 euros per person for 48hr pass but definitely worth it as using this it is very easy to access all areas of city via bus or canal boat. Would advise doing a complete 1hr circuit on both bus and boat with earphones supplied, and listen to commentary as this will give you bearings of city and which stop is best to access which attractions you wish to visit, then you simply hop on /hop off bus or boat whenever, where ever you wish as often as you wish -saves a lot of time and walking also gives access to far more sight seeing than you would if entirely on foot.Had a pleasant long weekend stay here though by far not the best place we have ever stayed, it was adequate as we were out sight seeing most of the time and were only in the hotel to sleep and breakfast. Would advise ferry passengers to book tickets including coach transfer from port to Amsterdam and back as journey is approx. 1hr 20mins and taxi fare is approx. 80 -100 euros each way.

An old apartment was turned in to a hotel. Building is so cute. Cleaning is satisfied. Has a small garden. It is in downtown but quite enough. You may walk to oldtown in 20 minutes. Our room was small and bathroom was unergonomic. No refrigerator. Wifi was satisfied. Breakfast is satisfied. Staff were helpfull. A good choice regarding the price.
