The Hotel is in the centre of Amsterdam so you can reach easily by a tram or by a car. Colours of the Hotel seems nice from inside. The staff was helpful, snacks was delicious. Scent was amazing! You will surely enjoy the city.
"Very good for what you pay"
Definitely would stay here again, as the building and room was very good. Of course, obtaining a good room wasn't a lucky chance. It was hard work. I have requested a quiet room, and they gave me a room close to the elevator, with a weird cut. So we went into lengthy discussions, and to keep the story short, I got a good room of the same size, but with high ceilings and chemistry between us. Yes, as the other reviewers mentioned, they are a bit dark, for the rest very comfy. The bar was nice. Not outstanding, but good. And for this price I am getting a hostel-like room in London or NYC or Paris. So it's a good option.
"For such a great building, I would have expected a bit more"
The hotel is trying to position itself at the luxury end of the scale, but needs to sort out a couple of things to fully make it. The staff are generally polite and helpful. Perhaps it is because this is a place of training staff that several did not think about the guest experience. For example, having selected the 17.50 Euros breakfast at check-in, I had high expectations. For the first two days, I was disappointed at the cold food breakfast buffet. On both days, I had to stop a member of staff and ask for a cup of coffee. Only on the third day, when I went up to the bar was I given the breakfast menu that I explained I could also order hot items. Each time I had breakfast, as soon as I sat down, I would have expected a visit from a member of staff giving me the menu and asking me what I wanted to drink. My room was on the second floor. There were signs of quality everywhere: nice towels, good bedding and toiletries, even a Nespresso coffee machine. However, the room itself was very dark (being in the room space) and the lighting was inadequate. A nice touch was the power cube (a neat arrangement of power sockets) on the desk, but the desk was wobbly and the chair unsuited for working. The internet connection was weak and unreliable. The bathroom area was of good quality, but was let down by the mirror being at a 45 degree angle (on account of the roof). This together with the poor lighting made it impossible to use the mirror to put in my contact lenses, shave or even comb my hair. Luckily there was a mirror on the inside of the wardrobe door. PLEASE put a small moveable mirror next to the basins, ideally one with lighting. Grand builiding Polite and helpful staff 2nd floor room High quality furnishings, plenty of towels and gels Dim only one window, poor lighting Wobbly desk Power cube Slow and unreliable internet Mirror at angle! Breakfast v expensive for limited selection and no hot food Tea or coffee hand made oer cup, slow
"The College Hotel was excellent!"
Recently my wife & I stayed at The College Hotel in Amsterdam to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The hotel was very nice and all the staff were really friendly. The food was very good with a great selection of dishes on the menu. The look and feel of the hotel is relaxing the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The location was perfect with great transport facilities with local museums, galleries amd shopping within 1 mile of the Hotel. We both loved the Hotel and are really looking forward in returning back soon.
"Check out Ferilli's at The College Hotel!"
Ferilli's at the College Hotel has an excellent Italian cuisine with a personal touch. High quality products and ingredients, prepared with love and attention. Try the ravioli, the risotto or the beautiful branzino which receives it's finishing touch right at your table. A diner to remember, in a beautiful and warm setting.
