The College Hotel

Ok I’m a diva. I like nice hotels and service but I also hate to be ripped off. I was traveling with friends and forgot to book my hotel. They were staying at the conservatorium hotel in Amsterdam. They were booked so the hotel referred me here. I wanted to be in the Museum district near my friends. The college is two long blocks from the Van Gough museum. A 10 min walk. I got a rate of 240 on an internet site and took it. The hotel is in a lovely restored old building. The room was spacious with huge windows, a fridge, a nesspresso machine and a lovely bathroom. Unfortunately they forgot to put soap in the bathroom. It only had 2 guest floors. I was given a room on the front of the building which was very noisy. The garbage trucks arrived at 6 am. There was also no one to help me with my bags upon check in. Request a room off the street and schleep your own bags for 240! Check the bathroom upon arrival! Definitely worth the price though.

We had an extremely comfortable stay at this lovely hotel. 5 minutes walk from some of the best museums and galleries in the world. The room was really quirky clean and cosy. We were given camomile tea bags and a short letter with tips for things to do the next day. It was our wedding anniversary and we came back to find little cakes, flowers and a charming note from the staff. Often it is the little things that make the big difference. We were very happy there and would highly recommend it!

Lovely, stylish hotel with nice bar, restaurant, lounge, upmarket feel. Good transport links or walking distant to museums. Friendly helpful staff. Probably not so suited for young children although stayed here with teenage daughter who enjoyed the stay.

Location of this hotel is excellent. Service the worst of any hotel I have ever stayed in. No one knows what they are doing! Coffee machine broken: Orders for food ignored and need to be repeated and repeated.... I understand it is a training hotel but I could not see any training!!! Would not recommend!

This hotel works very well for a family. Excellent location, beautiful common areas, very good breakfast and helpful staff. We would come back again! The room was nice looking and the bed was very very comfortable. They will also rent you bikes.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nights, and will definitely come back to The College Hotel. This hotel and staff provided the best holiday we could have wished for. The rooms were large and clean with tasteful interior. The complimentary minibar was a great touch. The breakfast was great, but unfortunately we were not able to try out the restaurant. The staff were really friendly and helpful and had a solution for everything. All in all a perfect stay:)

Beautiful hotel, I almost cannot find any negative comments, the staff was lovely, the grounds are meticulously kept, and I just just blown away by how pretty it is. We enjoyed too short of a stay last month. All of the museums and restaurants are only a very short walk away so I was happy with the location. Nice bar and lounge as well, room service was fast and the order was perfect too when we ordered one night. Potential tourists, take note, this hotel is worthwhile.

I really enjoyed my stay at the College Hotel in Amsterdam. My husband had business including meeting at the hotel and we decided to join him for a mix of work/ vacation. We travelled with our two young children 5 and 7 years old. We were able to all fit very nicely in a room and ended up using this very long L shaped sofa as a bed for both of them, not even needing the extra cot. The hotel is elegant and the staff is very helpful. I think the fact that this is a teaching hotel of hospitality students makes the vibe more down to earth. Also they are all so young and good looking! We got great advice and assistance of things to do and help buying tickets. I loved the high ceilings and the huge windows. Major plus was you could open the tops of windows to get fresh air in room. The only issue we had was bathroom lights kept going off. They fixed once but it went out again. Also I wish they had a few items on menu that were a little more basic comfort food. But I would recommend it highly and go again. The area around the hotel is great too, lots of cute restaurants and shops, and nice that it's away from the major touristy parts of red light district. Walkable to Van Gogh museum and little supermarket and cafes.... awesome!

Beautiful building. The tram station is really near. The bar is good with nice personnel and good red wine. Clear and quit. The receptionist was really helpful and nice. Everything is clean. So good price for quality.

Excellent Hotel , did everything possible to make our stay the best it could be , friendly helpful staff , lovely rooms and great value for money , can’t recommend enough , hopefully we will return soon 👌
