The Times Hotel in Amsterdam is a 3-star hotel in a historic building on the 'Herengracht'. As part of the international hotel group World Hotels, the Times Hotel guarantees a unique location, comfortable rooms, and good service from a professional staff. The hotel is located in a centuries old canal house that was built in 1650 and completely renovated in 2006. The hotel features 33 rooms, each of which is comfortably furnished and colourfully decorated. Each room is equipped with double or twin beds, a toilet, shower and/or bath, a telephone, a broadband Internet connection, and an LCD television. In addition, each room is equipped with air conditioning.

The Times Hotel has much more to offer its guests besides the standard amenities. The hotel has a rapid dry-cleaning service and at an additional charge guests can make use of the sauna, only a 2 minute walk from the hotel. You will be able to buy tickets for excursions and city tours from the helpful reception staff. Reception can also provide you with any information with regards to tourist, cultural or culinary queries. Every morning guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet, and you can enjoy a drink in the pleasant hotel bar.

The hotel offers not only a gorgeous appearance and good service, it also offers its guest an ideal location in the city centre of Amsterdam. For example, the hotel is a mere 500 metre away from the 'Anne Frank Huis', an essential destination for any visitor to the city of Amsterdam. The 'Dam', the famous site of the Royal Palace, the War Monument, and Madame Tussauds, is also merely 400 metre away from the Times Hotel. Those who prefer shopping will appreciate the hotel's close proximity to the 'Bijenkorf' department store and the many shops on the famous 'Kalverstraat'. Furthermore, the hotel?s direct surroundings are perfectly suited for a memorable exploration of Amsterdam?s famous ring of canals, with its many bridges, canals, and stately historic buildings.

  • (Other)
Perfect location - a bit small
  • + Location, easy quick check in an out, friendly staff
  • A VERY small hotel room which was very basic
5.6
  • (Families with older children)
Good Location but.....
  • + Location is very central and convenient. Also very attractive area in which to stay. Staff in hotel were very friendly and keen to help
  • Our room was very dirty! Had not been cleaned properly and towels not changed. Poor standard of repair to room also unless you have a canal facing room you do not have a view at all. This would not be so bad if the room had been spotlessly clean.
  • * my tip Cafes abound in this area we enjoyed Cafe de Hoek on Prinsengracht. Anne Frank House is a must and also the newly refurbished and renovated Rijksmuseum.
7.6
  • (Travelling alone)
Great location and desk staff
  • + Fantastic location in a quiet, picturesque street overlooking one of the canals, yet just a few minutes walk from the central train station and all the sites. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the decor is contemporary, bright and pleasant.
  • The carpets were dingy, and the mattress sank in badly in the middle.
  • * my tip The elevator does not go to the top floor - climbing the very steep stairs with luggage was a challenge.
7.2
  • (Older couples)
  • + vriendelijk
  • Wij hadden een kamer aan de voorkant. 3e of 4e etage links voor. Enkel glas, waardoor veel beslagen ramen en veel vocht en geen uitzicht. Zodanig dat achter de gordijnen de wand erg beschimmeld is
  • * my tip De man 's avonds was zeer behulpzaam voor ons lunchconcerten uit te zoeken.

Mediocre
  • + Well-located.
  • Noisy heaters with difficult controls. Small rooms. Ours had a shower only. Specifically requested a room with one double bed and got a room with two twins instead. Wish we had returned to the NH Doelen.

  • + Great hotel, very friendly staff, wonderful location.
  • The rooms are small, not a problem for me but if you want a spacious room it would be.
8.6
  • (Older couples)
The staff were very pleasant and efficient.
  • + Generally the helpfulness of the staff is to be praised.
  • We felt it a bit outrageous that we were charged to have a cup of tea or coffee, apart from during breakfast. Such hot drinks from a machine should be available free at any time of the day.

9.4
  • (Young couples)
great location, friendly staff & nice rooms.
  • + The Times hotel is located in the Jordaan area which is close enough to the nightlife and cultural areas but not noisy or overly full of tourists. It's a beautiful and quiet district and only 10 minutes walk from Centraal Station. The hotel itself is reasonably priced for the area, but a little tired (I really do mean a little.) The staff were lovely and very helpful. A great base for exploring the city. There is a safe in each room, and hair-dryers are available on request. Comfy beds. unlike many small hotels in Amsterdam there is a lift.
  • tea and coffee would have been nice in the room, but it's next door to a coffee shop so not really an issue.
7.6
  • (Young couples)
Cosy hotel in a nice location.
  • + Location
  • The room we got was just above the reception (very noisy) We also paid for a canal view but the window was on floor level so it was more of a street view. If this is what you get when booking online then we'll try somewhere else.

9.4
  • (Young couples)
  • + We LOVED this hotel! Cheaper than most near the center and yet just a few canals away from the tourist center so it felt like we were living in the neighborhood! Rooms are small but all the more charming as it is an old canal house. Lovely canal views with safe and toilet/shower in room! Staff was friendly and helpful and we could walk / bike to everything... would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again!

  • (Young couples)
  • + the breakfast was excellent the reception, they were very nice
  • Our room was too small comparing to its price, the window too small and dangerous
7.0
  • (Older couples)
  • + Location is very good. Is a very quiet place
  • The worst, I think is the breakfast that seems to be little industrial (is not natural foods)
6.6
  • (Young couples)
  • + the hotel is right downtown
  • 170euros for a room supposed to be with a canal view... and instead having a pavement view (room151 if I remember correctly)it's just not correct towards the customers... I thought by putting 170euros in a hotel room I'll have at least a bigger room and this view that was advertised... I had none of it. I was disappointed and will frankly never come back in this hotel.

  • + Excellent location, clean and modern furnishings
  • Very poor and limited lighting in the room, the desk wass in complete darkness. TV did not work and was reported but no action taken to repair or offer move to a different room. Check-in was extremely slow and inefficient.
8.0
  • (Older couples)
  • + Clean and relatively effficient operation
  • No true double beds. for couples this meant having 2 separate beds that would separate if you wnted to cuddle together. This barrier to closeness led us to change hotels for a genuine double bed.

5.6
  • (Young couples)
  • + Complimentary Tea and Coffee downstairs Friendly Staff, easy going but helpful Good location for major attractions
  • It cost WAY too much for what it offered. £75p/n rooms should have been £45p/n. Dirty, stained carpets, grey walls on landings and in room - felt like a prison cell. Room was so small, there were no bedside cabinets or any furniture - only a bed + wardrobe. Not worth £75 in my book. Very thin walls - take earplugs. Heard conversations from next room and very loud people outside our bedroom late into the night - sound carried. It wasn't really bad, just felt let down - wasn't the quality I expected.

  • + excellent position in the city
  • I mean way of parking car near your hotel.First of all I could not stop my car in front of your hotel because of the traffic-all the follower driver were flashing me not to stay to unload my luggage.After 3 rounds made finaly I succedeed to discharge it.But the bigest and disagreable situation was with the payment of parking although I had credit card and money cash but no coins.I try to get so many coins late in the night but was not possible.But situation was solved by paying of a penalty higher than 100 Euro.And I am not gulty.For this manner how you assist your visitors for parking car I give you the mark 1(one) and I shall make a not so good advertising to your hotel to my friends.
