  • (Older couples)
We consider the NH Doelen to be one of the best hotels in Amsterdam
  • + We always stay in the NH Doelen which speaks for itself. The location is excellent, the staff always courtious and friendly. We have stayed in other hotels in Amsterdam but always come back to this one
  • * my tip We love the Paradiso for music and bands and we like the Hermitage for it' s Art Exhibitions

  • (Travelling alone)
Adequate but not exciting.
  • + Friendly reception staff.
  • Breakfast was not good value. Nor was it very exciting. I found a better deal and meal elsewhere for the second day. The WiFi was very slow and what I paid in the room could not be used in the foyer. So I wasted money.

  • (Older couples)
One of the gems in the Amsterdam collection
  • + We have stayed at the Doelen every year for the last 20 years, ever since we first found it. That says it all, without further comment. But if you need more - it's a great hotel in a perfect place.

ok hotel but very noisy location
  • Was not informed that road construction in front of hotel would start early Monday when we checked in. Had to change hotels to get any sleep as noisy university students were singing/drinking from 1am to 3am and hotel staff did nothing about it

Go away!
  • They sent us to another hotel, when I said I need separate beds. You should either indicate this option in your booking system, or they do not have the right to send me to another hotel!

NH Doelen gets worse...
  • + Perfect location
  • Have been ther before. On the river side very nice rooms. This time I got a small room on the street side. For the high price I have paid the room(s)are small and grubby. For upgrade they wanted additional money (looks to be new strategy to maximize profit...)

I feel I paid for accomodation twice
  • + Location is very good for sightseeing. Everything is close to the hotel.
  • One day the "clean" towels (both of them) were dirty. I wasn't satisfied with payment condition. It is too secure for the hotel and bad for guest. I wonder this method refers to every guest or only to us from Hungary. I am sorry you didn't trust us. We haven't been a lot of country so far (individual and business trip)and everywhere pay the bill correctly. I hope I will get my "blocked" money and I will not have problem about it.

No reason to stay here - other much better deals in town
  • + Good daytime staff. Location not very bad, but closeness to where it happens, means noise!
  • Nightstaff friendly, but not knowledgeable. Dusty room and dirty blanket full of curly hairs from previous visitors. Water hardly dribbling from shower.

  • (Older couples)
Great weekend deal and location
  • + Weekender break allowed late check-out on Sun and free use of mini bar which was great. Breakfast was very good.
  • No noise in hotel itself but canal/street noise on Friday night was quite a problem, especially as we had to have the windows open due to the heat.
7.4
  • (Older couples)
Gracious old world charm with excellent staff
  • + friendly, patient, kind and most helpful staff. Early check in was allowed. Big plus when, as in our case, an early flight gets you into Amsterdam at 10 am. Access to wonderful coffee (heaven!)through corridor to next door. Great 'old-world' atmosphere.
  • re room 302: room 'sad' and tatty due to torn/damaged wallpaper and general need of refurbishment. Bathroom was seriously defective. Access to shower was really dangerous, false ceiling dirty. In general the bathroom was the biggest disappointment. This is an important point, given tourists get hot and tired etc, and need to shower more frequently than usual. Instead it was a major 'task' to use the facilities. Too much furniture in room thus making it difficult to 'navigate'. Room should be completely redesigned to make better use of space.

I love Amsterdam
  • + The gentleman on reception whose name I didn't catch was excellent and completely made our entire stay the pleasure that it was. He went out of his way to accommodate us and showed top quality customer service skills. I stayed in one of the NH hotels in Amsterdam last year and I found the reception staff unfriendly and unhelpful but staying in this NH hotel has encouraged me to try others around europe. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

  • + very comfortable mattress very large bath towels a fridge great location very friendly and helpful staff fruit?-scented bath products - lovely

Queen's Day 2009
  • + Considering we were in Amsterdam for Queen's Day, the biggest party of the year in the Netherlands, the NL Doelen was surprisingly peaceful. It was the perfect location to use as base while taking part in all of the city's festivities.

  • (Friends)
Perfect hotel for a city-break.
  • + The location is an absolute plus. Close to the Rembrandtsplein and all the hot spots in the city-center.
  • The staff is very helpful, but the communication between members could be improved. We asked the reception to have the room cleaned during our absence in the evening, but when we returned to our room nothing was done...

  • (Young couples)
Great place to stay if they would take their guests for their word
  • + Great location and a very nice building.
  • Arrival started off great: our room got upgraded to a junior suite and we received complementary breakfast. Unfortunately by the next morning, selective amnesia set in and we were charged 18Euro/person for breakfast. After mentioning the promise of complementary breakfast, they tried offering 25% off coupons. Ultimately, one talk with the manager and one call to the receptionist that made the promise later, we got the breakfast for free. All in all, I think this FBI level inquiry was a little elaborate for a cup of coffee and some yogurt.

DO NOT TALK TO THE NIGHT CLERK AND YOU WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME
  • + Everything with the exclusion of a older man with glasses who worked Wednesday night shift, who corrected my pronunciation, was very combative, rude and should never work in the hospitality industry, was nice. That, however, was overshadowed by day shift's Michael's non stop smile, perfect English and zealous desire to make my stay as great as he could make it.. my maid and most of the 'desk girls' were close the same. Michael was just the best and treated everyone the same. Room was kept perfect, bathrooms spacious,the gleaming marble and chrome was spotless and again maid was pleasent and very very happy to help with requests. As I come there twice a year, I have stayed at most of the 4 stars in Amsterdam and it was at least equal to all of them at a better price. Hotels.nl was the only site that I found on the internet that had the exact special I wanted at the last minute. With the USD problem I will still shop around but will consider NH Doelen on my next trip in November/08 and use Hotels.nl to book it.

Nettes Hotel in super Lage. Leider überteuert.
  • + Lage, Ausblick zur Gracht, Charme
  • weiche, durchgelegene Matratze Toilette brauchte 10 Minuten bis sie wieder gefüllt war absurd hohe Minibar-Preise alles in allem eher gute 3 Sterne. 4 sind definitiv zu hoch

Great value hotel in perfect spot for exploring.
  • + Fantastic location. Staff are very friendly. Rooms are well appointed and clean, and the price for a 4 star hotel is great. Would recommend.
  • it is a little dated, but only really against the expectations set in the photographs on the website, its just not quite as glam.

A faulty pearl
  • + View from room window magnificent. Marvellous location. Helpful receptionists.
  • Room small for 2 persons with (overseas) luggage. Beds small. Mattress too soft, std pillows too soft (and high). No hall porter to help with luggage. When we were at your hotel the weather was hot and as there was no air cond. we always left the window open. A certain day, when coming back to the room we found that pigeon(s) had entered and left a souvenir (shitting) on the carpet. We think that the hotel should warn guests about that. Elevator slow. Breakfast expensive, should be included.

  • (Young couples)
Don't (even you are first timers like us)
  • + well well.. nothing spectecular. the staff was ok but you expect that naturally.
  • we stayed only for 2 nights and paid 250 Euros but the room was so small for a 4 stars hotel whatsmore we learned it is the same for most rooms in amsterdam because of the land itself.so i guess we will try a hostel next time :) the bed was not comfortable at all and i do not want to mention the TV which was ancient as the building. The city is practically the canal yet they want 30 euros extra for "the canal view" AND IT IS NOT NEAR THE DAM you have to walk or take the tram.
6.6
  • (Travelling alone)
  • very difficult to find with the indications given on the hotel page. add tram connections and walking routs, at least from the main station intimidating small room for a very high room price
