Savoy Hotel Amsterdam

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We got a room where was not working. It turned out that room was under maintenance and should not have been even sold to us. We got offered an “emergency” room near reception, which was not properly cleaned and the air conditioning made a very loud noise. The manager didn’t even bother to help because he was sleeping (me and my pregnant friend were not!). Our claim to return back the money was rejected.

The hotel is pretty average, but on the first day we did not have hot water in the morning! Then, besides the air conditioning, they have air recycling vents in the rooms, which may seem a good idea , except that ours was on top of the bed and we got a cold because of it during the night. Never again.

If you want to have a nice night in a comfortable clean hotel, DO NOT GO HERE! I was visiting Amsterdam lately and as I am on the 7th month pregnancy, I wanted to have a warm comfortable sleep, so I chose a hotel over hostel. I’m still regretting... With -4 degrees outside they have me a room with a BROKEN HEATING, so in the room it was at best +10 degrees! I refused to stay there, providing it put my health and the health of my unborn child in danger, and asked for replacement. It turned out everything in the hotel was already taken, and the service was even “surprised” how come I could book a room since they had 4 ROOMS WITH DEFECTS and yet they rented it out to me!!! TOTAL SCAM! The manager didn’t bother helping either, after my stay I sent several claims - no reply, no apology. NOTHING! Being pregnant, at night, paid 140 eur for a night and having nowhere to sleep - this is where I was left eventually.. The hotel itself is very old and definitely shouldn’t be used anymore at all, especially with this kind of attitude. I’m very disappointed.. never had anything like this in my life.

Dirty and Awful. Left straight away after seeing the room. Do not book here, no real mattress, moldy shower, and worn to death sheets. Air conditioning was broken ( blowing hot air ) which you could not turn off, and we could not even open the window ( it was 30 degrees this weekend ). Receptionist could not care less, just shrugged his shoulders and said there was no other room.

Me and two of my friends went to Amsterdam for a five day visit staying at the savoy hotel. Whilst at our visit we experienced a few problems due to the lack of communication at the hotel. On the day of arrival we had to pay €92 at which point we asked was that everything, and got the reply that it was and that there would be no further charge to which after 3 days of the holiday they demanded a further €200. To resolve this situation they reduced the price but still expected money. This wouldn’t have been a problem if we were told on the first day that this amount of money would still need to be collected from us but as we were told everything was paid we then had to ring home arranging for more money to be transferred due to costs that we had no clue about. Further more the hotel room was a good size although it like cleanliness. Past customers/ visitors left us gifts in the various books that are left in the room. There was dust covering the table to the point it created a clump of fluff when wiped. There were stains on some of the sheets and no coffee or tea in the room on arrival. The mini fridge was not stocked although they had a vending machine in the corridor by the lift. This machine was not stocked up one while we stayed though. The coffee machine pretty much never had milk in it so there was no choice of coffee unless you like espresso, there was no choice of hot chocolate either for the whole duration of the stay. We had to look through the cupboards to find the sugar due to the lack of service at the hotel. So to summarise, If you enjoy cleaning, self service and just a massive palaver while you are on holiday then I would recommend this hotel. If you want an easy and cheaper hotel or want to get what you are paying for then I strongly suggest you go elsewhere as you pay a lot more than the hotel provides. It is not value for money due to the fact that the hotel is appalling and I would definitely not rate it 4 star. Maybe a high 2 star or a low 3 star.

Old fashioned hotel. Not very clean. The mechanical ventilation was within my room, working from 6:20 am.... Warm shower with a poor pressure. The staff tried to do their best. Clearly, it’s a 2* level, not a 4*

My experience with this hotel started out as surprise at the lack of basic things such as hand soap, shower gel, shampoo or a do not disturb sign. The room was small for a double with mould and stains in the bathroom. On the last night of my stay I was disturbed to hear and then see a mouse trying to eat from the bin. I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. There are plenty of better choices in the area.

Underground room with almost no day light. Asked for a double bed, got two single beds put together. Bathroom had no natural light at all and the non natural light was really weak, making it super dark. Shower amenities were the same for hair and body, very weird. A lot of noise from the street traffic, so, no noise reduction on the windows. The heater was making a hammering sound the whole night... And, the cherry on the top, the WiFi signal was COMPLETELY useless, as it was too weak in my room to connect anything... Terrible room and experience.

The Savoy Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city and a 15 - 17 euro ride from the red light district - The property is situated adjacent to a police station. (which is a great thing as Amsterdam cops are awesome - really they are) so all the taxi drivers know the location. The Savoy Hotel has a tram line running right outside it and all the shops are a two minute walk. One has easy access to a few of the coffee shops as well that sell weed if you need a joint and dont want to run to the red light district. It serves an honest breakfast that is mainly a cold buffet. In house one has all the amenities that anyone from a back packer to a business traveller or what someone like me who is in the travel field would like. The staff is incredible and always friendly. The housekeeping does a wonderful job and despite the fact that the internet is not exactly what one would expect the Savoy Hotel Amsterdam is an excellent value for money! The property will do everything to satisfy all its guests. It is also one of the rare hotels that have triple rooms (hotel not hostel). The rooms are spacy and smell fresh. (not a new property but very clean) One needs to note that a lot of travellers who visit Amsterdam might be under the influence of a globally controlled substance that is legal in the Netherlands so if they post pictures of bruises bumps and grazes then one needs to factor that element in there as well.

Was there by end of March 2018. A good hotel to be. A little bit far from citycenter but located on Ferdinand Street which is a main street in amsterdam. Rooms are clean and not noisy. Prices of coffee and bar are less expensive than citycenter. You can admire all amsterdam by walking from center to the hotel. I recommend it.
