TravelPod Member ReviewsAvenue Hotel Amsterdam
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.

... of flowered plants. You could actually get through the city just fine on foot, but having a public transit system built in was a huge plus for this city. The trollies raced through the intersections as tourists bailed out of the way and no one seemed to get excited at near misses between pedestrians and the vehicles.
After dropping our bags at the hotel we hurried over to the floating flower market to buy some bulbs. ...
... areas of where so many people hid in fear. I noticed many other tourist cry as they walked the passageways. A strange place Amsterdam. Cars on the road were replaced by bicycles.

We have had some tea and coffee and breakfast and we are getting ready to walk in this beautiful neighborhood. Right now the sun is out but we have had intermittent showers and gray skies as well. Rusty commented that it is very much like a soft Irish day. As the gray skies cleared and the sun came out, ...
