of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We visited over the Christmas holiday and really enjoyed staying at the College Hotel. It's location is perfect to check out the museums and right by the tram that takes you to the central train station. The room was nicely decorated and clean. We had hoped for two twin beds but by the time we arrived there weren't any available. We had one queen bed instead that I shared with my friend. The rain show was a particular highlight. Breakfast and Christmas dinner at the restaurant was excellent. Staff were very well trained and provided a festive holiday atmosphere. The front desk staff were amazing as well. Almost everyday they helped us plan our day and booked tickets for us to avoid lines. All in all, we would recommend this hotel to all travelers looking for a quiet, clean hotel.
"Brilliant Christmas dinner with an entourage"
This year traditional family Christmas dinner was arranged by my daughter in Amsterdam. She managed to get reservations at the College Hotel in Amsterdam and the food and ambiance was brilliant... We were warmly welcomed, the food was good, the wine was excellent and the service was good. They had a pianist playing which would also play music in request. The college hotel is located near a popular district called "De Pijp". It is housed in a typical dutch former school building (Old dutch HBS). It has been beautifully restored and it stirred up a lot of good memories from my youth. The architecture of the building is typical for older schools in Holland. Although the exterior is beautiful it is the interior that is well worth a further inspection. Lots of old details. Although we only visited the restaurant I am convinced that spending the night will be an equally pleasant experience. One critical note though. Check your bill carefully before paying.
"Nice and quiet hotel"
The hotel is closed to the museum district and easy to reach from many parking areas outside the city. If you don' t fancy walk until the centre, tram n. 5 connects you in 10/15 mins. Staff is very nice and very helpful. Breakfast good and at a reasonable price. The rooms are very quiet and the building is very beautiful. We had been upgrated to a junior suite which was very kind. The room (121) was very well mantained (and so the whole hotel) but a little bit dark. The lighting system was the trickiest I have ever seen. And even when you manage to light it up, it is very soft and too dark at night time, making impossible to find stuff in the wardrobe (the light inside the wardrobe worked at its convinience... almost never!). Internet connection (wifi) was free, but in our room didn't work at all. To download something we had to leave the phone/ipad in the corridor for a few mins. A part for this little inconvinience i would recommend this location.
"The best place"
The college hotel is the best and my favourite place to stay when in Amsterdam!! I have very pleasant memories about my stay, rooms are amazing, room service and mini bar full of snack and selection of spirits. Massive bed and a bath in the bedroom mmm If u want a modern luxury stay, this is it!
"Excellent staff and hotel "
Unfortunately, when I arrived, I was unwell. Subsequently diagnosed with gastroenteritis when I returned home and went to hospital. The staff were very tentative to my needs and even upgraded us free of charge. The called the Dr twice for me and provided much needed room service. The trio was a bust for me, but made bearable and as pleasant as possible by the hotels staff. Thank you for being great. We'll be back under better circumstances.
