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 👌

Here day two of four. courteous, friendly students eager to make your stay the best. Perfectly located a little outside the tourist center where we’ve made friends with locals. Walkable to everything. Room is just fine! Was a little worried with some negative reviews but this place is perfect. If you’re uptight and demand perfection, not for you. If you want local flavor, friendly staff, and great accommodation, stay here. This is now my go-to for any and all future stays.

Comfortable and spacious room. Same as other hotels, the light is very dim and there is very few power plug. Very high ceiling height. Good atmosphere. Hotel arranged a good taxi for sending us to airport.

The College Hotel is a nicely presented hotel located around 20 minutes tram from the centre of Amsterdam, it was a little too far for us however if you don’t mind using the trams or rent bikes/scooters then you will be fine. Rooms are spacious with very high ceilings, only compliant is that the room was quite cold. During our stay they were preparing for an event so the bar and restaurant areas were quite busy. Wouldn’t rush to stay there again however only because of the location. A taxi to the airport was around €40.

What a pity, we really looked forward to staying in the hotel. Its a beauthotel, nice decor but thats the only good thing we can mention. Unfriendly und not helpful staff. Our room 101 was dirty (unclean taps, tiles dirty)curtins were hanging down,lights by the bed and in the bathroom worked partly. Cups and glasses not information about the hotels facilities... There was a nice info of the restaurant, inviting us to use the drink voucher... we never received any voucher at check in. We asked about the voucher... they don’t exist any more was the answer. Later we received an apology with some sweets and two old taty vouchers. Breakfast till 10:00 is for us also a no go.

the building is very nice from the outside and inside, very well done recovering the look of the building. The staff at reception made an effort to find us a king size bed. The room is big, unfortunately the window is high and there is no views to anywhere, there are also loud in the mornings rush. The lunch is not special, breakfast is fair, service is not very good though the hotel , we ask for a late check out and wanted to charge us 20 euros per hour !!! better say that they can't give a later check out.

Nice superior room, beautiful hotel building and outside restaurant area, lousy reception service, broken air condition, noisy room, very average restaurant quality. The staff is quiet lost when you have a problem like a broken air condition with 28 degrees, superiors or manager are not available and don't apologize, check-out not really friendly.

I stayed 2 nights in the College Hotel and it was fantastic! When they asked me for my feedback I told them: a big 10! The hotel is great, the rooms are beautiful, the service is super and the people are so kind!! Perfect location! I highly recommend this hotel!

One night here is enough. Positives: - the bed is good - good food for dinner and friendly waiter Negatives: - two lamps did not work. Spoke to reception twice but no solution, meaning no reading or working in the sofa, only by the miniature desk and the uncomfortable chair there. - the chairs at the restaurant are stained and are clearly not cleaned thoroughly. Makes you wonder how the kitchen is...

In Dutch/Flemish we would say ‘een karaktervol hotel’. It is a lovely building full of atmosphere giving you a very cosy feeling. A nice big room with high ceiling. A separated bathroom with big (rain)shower. No bath. The airco was working fine in my room and it was great to have a nespresso machine in the room. The walls are painted very dark but that mad it feel so cosy. Hotel is at a good and rather central location near “museum plein”. Other part of the city can be easily reached by tram and even better you can rent a bike. I rented a bike from the hotel during my 3 days stay and that was great. I completely felt like one of them ☺. The only disappointing element for me was that the hotel do no longer provide a parking service. I had to park the car at the nearest q-park (museum plein) that turned out to be expensive. Adding the parking fee to the room fee then turned out to be an expensive stay and there are cheaper alternative hotels that provide a (free) parking service.
