The hotel advertises free Internet but the service is so slow that the most common screen I see is the "The connection has timed out" message. I tried to run a speed test but the connection was too slow and the test timed out. The computer in the lobby has a fine connection but they severely limit the speed on the WiFi connections to the rooms.

Historical Traveler Reviews Avenue Hotel Amsterdam
Ok for price
The Avenue was OK for the price. It's a good location especially if you are arriving by train as we did. The breakfast was the largest we had in Europe. The staff is friendly and helpful. On the down side, our room was dark and the bath very small. The ceilings in the hallways were very low and in our room, there were low beams across the ceiling.
Our son is 6'4" and his head almost touched the ceiling in the hallways and the beams in the room. He also had to bend over in the shower. We were on the 5th floor so don't know if all the rooms are this way.
Great Location, Great Hotel
Hotels in Amsterdam are definitely hit or miss. However, Avenue Hotel was surprisingly nice. The room was clean and well-furnished. The reception staff were quick and efficient. And the breakfast, which was included in the price of the room, was an added surprise. On top of a great hotel, the location was superb -- only five minutes from Central Station -- so it's a quick walk to catch the train back to the airport.
Top class hotel
excellent location, clean basic room and friendly staff.
Ive stayed in amsterdam 4 times and this is the best hotel i've stayed in.
The breakfast is excellent.
Will def use this hotel again.
Really handy and comfortable
I have stayed at the avenue twice. its been tidied up a lot and fair value for money. I would be happy to recommend this hotel as comfortable, well appointed and handy for amsterdam city. Close to everything..just the job
Amsterdam in December
19th to 22nd December 2003. 3 nights B & B.I booked the Avenue hotel on line. It suited our needs perfectly for a 3 night stay in Amsterdam.
Close to all the central attractions, Red Light district, canal tours, shops, bars and trams.Friendly staff, a clean warm hotel with great buffet breakfast. The Motimahal Indian restaurant and London Bridge "British pub" across the road can also be reccomended. 5 mins walk to Centraal railway station. The single rooms we booked had TV, bath, shower,telephone but no drink making facilities.I would have no hesitation in reccomending on my experience and would certainly book it again.
Great hotel A life saver
I reserved a room at the gloob. What a dump. I walked for 2 hours and found the hotel avenue. It's clean, has cable tv, breakfast included, a bar with internet access. You can get better rates by shopping the hotels when you get here. There prices are inflated on the sites. I must stay for anyone.
Smart but inexpensive
We have stayed at the Avenue twice recently and have found it a very well appointed and clean hotel. The rooms are comfortable and bright.
The hotel is not far from the Centraal station (about 5 min walk) and is handy for the Dam Square area, the hotel is nevertheless on a relatively quiet main road but a walk around the corner brings you into one of the main shopping malls (Nieuwendijk) and parallel with the Rokin main street. Nearby is a bar called the Trappist which is small and typically dark but which sells a great range of Belgian beers and is worth a visit.
an excellent hotel rooms pretty basic but thats all you need , so close to everything and only a 10 min stroll to amsterdam central station .
Food was of an excellent standard , we are going back to amsterdam next year and hope to stay in the avenue hotel
Rocken location, fun for all!
This hotel is right behind the palace, and accross the street from the Straaut (Shopping) and the main square. there is a food store a block away. The rooms at this place were total cute and classic. The staff was warm and very dutch. I stayed there for a week. It's a nice 2/3 star, better then most. We had a huge room facing the street with windows that opened to a great view. One morning a stamp collecting street thing was set up. Darling!
Excellent Central Hotel
We stayed at the Avenue last January and are returning at beginning of next month.
Excellent Central Hotel. We had a large room on fourth floor overlooking the main street. Little traffic noise and great opening french doors.
Double bathroom with all amenities.
Little bar and great breakfasts.
Very friendly, helpful Staff.
Can recommend it highly.
Many hotels are quite run-of-the-mill in the City, and the Avenue was a pleasant place to stay.

When I was researching and preparing for the holiday, everyone gave the same advice about how to cope with jet lag - don't go to sleep until the evening, and try to get as much daylight as you can in the first day. So, I booked a tour with Amsterdam Photo Safari for 11am! I found this activity while searching on TripAdvisor, and Tim had been given …
Holland is a country that has always boxed way above it's weight. At one point it was the richest country on earth having a bigger empire than we did at the time. The Dutch were masters of the sea and founded New York City - its original name was New Amsterdam. We didn't get our mitts on the place till 1664. But I digress. Amsterdam is the result …
Amsterdam was the first city I have visited in Europe. I have always wanted to go to Europe for a long time, but never had anyone to go with and did not want to go alone. Finally I convinced my friend Pam to go with me on a whim. After some careful planning, we booked a 6-day trip to Amsterdam and Barcelona with European Destinations. It was a …
... t over here. It was awesome and a local favourite too. They also had yoyos and all kinds of other classics. I grabbed some lolly cake to take back to my work colleagues so they could sample the awesomeness that is lolly cake and thought I might have been smuggling something back with such a weird name 'lolly cake' as they call lollies 'sweeties' over here! I was worried I wouldn't get through the airport with it as it wasn't wrapped, but it wasn't a problem!
... the inexperienced, he said, a mild hit he said... If only he had of seen us all in 1 hours time haha. I never thought I could laugh so hard in all my life! Needless to say, not much else got done that night but our ab muscles got a real workout. Coffee shop experience had! :) We did a walking tour the next afternoon named the red light tour... Because we thought, if we are going to live in this place we should probably know a bit about ...
