From the moment we stepped through the door to the moment we left the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped us find our way around the city, recommended some lush restaurants and coffee shops and helped us with a few extras for our room. Had breakfast with them

Just got home from a long weekend stay with Hotel Van De Vijsel and we cannot wait to come back! Excellent location for exploring Amsterdam, close to the trams and in great walking distance of everything. We only used the trams to get to and from the airport, everything else

Spent a few days. Perfectly located for exploring Amsterdam. Close to tram 12 from Central Station or 30 minutes walk. Very clean, room was at the back so no street noise. Friendly, helpful staff. New hotel with stylish decor. Only negative point was that sounds travelled

Hotel van de vijsel was fab. You could tell the hotel was new, loved the furniture and quirky pieces of art along the hall way. Our room faced onto other rooms but with a comfortable bed, loved the coffee machine although more creamer required, (suppose I could have asked for

Dear LindaMcS, Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback, this review is highly appreciated. I am happy that we exceeded your expectations regarding decor, the comfort and you loved the coffee machine. Indeed, we are super happy to provide you with more creamer of coffee or the, if you swing by the reception desk. Thank you for making us aware regarding the lighting of the room, this is part of the design, but we do understand, sometimes it is less practical. We hope to welcome you in Amsterdam and especially in Hotel van De Vijsel another time. With kind regards, Dora Team Hotel Van De Vijsel

We bought a train ticket from a machine in baggage collection I think it was around 10 euros one way, return is probably better value. Train station is within the airport so easy to get to and takes about 15 minutes to get to Centraal Station. We then bought a tram ticket to last the duration of our stay at Centraal and jumped on a number 12 tram to Leidesplein which is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Alternatively you can pay for each idividual trip on the tram I think the price is 2.80 euros per trip.

How long has the hotel been open?

Hi. Is this hotel open?
The upper floor rooms have a balcony but the rooms face an inner court so opening the door will lead you directly to the room opposite. This is definitely not a hotel for a claustrophobic person.
