    The staff were good and moved me to a different room for the 2nd night. As the first room was dirty, small and smelly.

    The first room I had was appalling

    I stayed at Hotel Blyss because it is so convenient for the Concertgebouw, which is where the conference was held. This is a finance conference, run by students, that I have now attended every year for the last three years. The hotel is also close to major museums, and is very close to the Vondel Park, which is a pleasant park in which to stroll. I like everything about Hotel Blyss; rooms are nice, breakfast good, and staff helpful and pleasant. There are shops and cafes nearby, and cash points, also useful tram routes.

    Very good

    It was fairly close to the centre and lots of restaurants. The double room was basic but nice. The hotel staff were very friendly.

    When I booked the room in February, 8 months prior to my arrival, I specified that I wanted a 'double' room as opposed to a 'twin' room (you are able to make a specific request for this); my 'double' room request was confirmed in writing. However upon arrival I was allocated a 'twin' room. When I first challenged this I was told they had not received a specific request for a double room. Thankfully I had the email confimation with me, so they honoured my request, but they were not willing to change my room without proof of acceptance of my request for a double room. All was well in the end. Make sure you bring proof of any particular requests with you along with proof of their acceptance.

    The location was close to the trams

    My room was damp and smelt bad. Not somewhere I will stay again. Breakfast is overpriced and probably the worst of any hotel.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The location for Amsterdam nightlife is ideal; just a few minutes walk from Leidseplein and 1 minute from Vondel Park. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and the hotel is very quiet despite being close to the night life. A great place for backpackers and a very reasonable price.

    For the price and location, it is difficult to fault. Breakfasts are a little basic but you could always skip breakfast (an optional extra) and walk into Leidseplein to eat.

    Location near Leidesplein and Vondelpark. Staff were pleasant, though not entirely outgoing.

    Photos and description misleading: appeared to be new, trendy, contemporary, but these only applied to the lobby. Rooms were drab and old, but decent size and clean. Accessibility: discourage this place for lightweights who don't want to haul their suitcases up, down, around multiple flights of steps. Parking: was told in email I could get directions to a carpark for a dozen euro per day, but the place I was referred by reception wound up being four times that. Survivable stay, but disappointing at this price level.

    Nice

    I liked location, that would be it:)

    No atmosphere in the hotel. Like no one is there. No music in the lounge area. I've checked two other rooms before I decided which one I like. Old fernitures, bad smell in the rooms, cold, very loud from the steet, and other rooms. Very poor bathroom. But clean :)

    Very good

    ... If you like paying for something that you don't want then this is a great place

    Not much that I disliked, but we didn't get what we reserved and got put in a different room. No discounts because of the inconvenience nor an explanation why we didn't get our rooms. Check in was at 1400 and we arrived at 1230. Instead of informing us immediately about the situation and explaining why it happened so, we found out about it last minute. Once the room was booked online with credit card customers are told that the room is reserved and booked. Another surprise that hit us because then we had to pay another cover-charge which is still pending. A lot of hidden things that could make your stay in Amsterdam a horror trip. So for this inconvenience I personally will not recommend this hotel nor mentioned that I stayed here

    I expected better parking facilities - the cost was prohibitive and I needed to attend family events which lasted beyond midnight. When I returned, the hotel was locked. A 3 star establishment should be open all the time. The room was very small and only had a shower/wet room, when I had asked for a bath. I would class this hotel as a Bed & Breakfast at perhaps 3 stars, but as a hotel it was no more than one star. I was also surprised to be asked to pay for the 4 nights when I checked in. It is normal to take the credit card details, but for the customer to pay on check out.

    Great

    Good value for money. The location of the hotel was good. It was within easy walking distance to shops, pubs, clubs and public transport. The hotel staff were friendly and very accommidating when it came to leaving your luggage after check out time. The main hotel area was decorated to a very high standard and the room we had was nicely decorated, quite spacious and clean. the beds and towels were changed every day.

    No tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
