Historical Traveler Reviews Bellevue Hotel Amsterdam
Previous reviews were spot on.
What can I say, all the previous reviews are exactly as reported. It is across the street from Central Station (maybe 100 yards). The rooms look like they were from the pages of an IKEA catalog. The staff was friendly and spoke perfect English.
As far as Amsterdam, what a great city. Make sure you hit all the museums - especially the Heiniken Tour.
Just returned from Amsterdam and the Bellevue Hotel. This place just opened 5 months ago and is brand new. It's by far the best 3 star hotel we've stayed in. The interior design of the rooms is fantastic. It includes wonderful room lighting scheme options, a flat screen T.V. built into the wall, double pane windows that completely shut out the noise (so grab a room on the street side, the views are marvelous), floor to ceiling mirror in the bathroom, hair dryer, accent wallcovering and wonderful mattresses and comforters. The housekeeping staff is excellent. We slept in one day till 3:00PM due to the never ending nightlife options and used our "Do Not Disturb" door knob sign. The housekeeping staff never disturbed us and to our surprise, left new towels and wash clothes in a bag hung onto our door. That's what I call customer service. The room size (twin) was appropriate for European standards. The breakfast was excellent and offered many options (eggs, sausage, bacon, mini Dutch pancakes, cereal, breads, juices, coffee, even ice water). The desk staff is pleasant and seemed genuinely happy that you selected their hotel. The location is great. It's a 5 minute walk from the train station and couldn't be easier to find. The value is unsurpassed.
Have just spent 3 days in Amsterdam at Bellevue Hotel. The location is great - you can walk to "everything". The hotel is new and fresh. Breakfast is ok, but be awere the opening hours. We were told that the breakfast was open until 10.30 every day - not true. That is just in the weekends.
The shower did not have shower curtains so the floor got really wet.
Regardless a few negative things, this is a very nice place to stay when going to Amsterdam. A 3 star hotel close to 4!
We would definitely stay here again.
The best choice in amsterdam
I went to amsterdam whit my husband in july 2005. I think I saw all the hotels in amsterdam in the internet before i reserve this. We loved the hotel itīs a 3 stars that can easily be a 4 stars. The rooms are quiet small, but in amsterdam they all are... :) The rooms are very modern, in a minimalist style, very clean, very confortable, LCD television, big windows, very white, whit a good light. The personal are very friendley, and helps you a lot.
Itīs a central hotel, were you can reach almost all pointīs of interest by walking around. For me is the best way to know amsterdam. You can rent a bike if you like .
Buy the amsterdam card but not for all the days, itīs not necessary, plan the visitīs and than buy.
I loved amsterdam and i will go there again and i will saty in bellevue :)
P.S: donīt take the breakfast in the hotel, you can find more nice places around the city, and for less money.
Great place, but take your breakfast outside!
Just spent 2 nights in the Bellevue and it was everything other people said about it: very clean, very nice design in rooms, charming people at the reception.
However, the breakfast was very disappointing (specially when not included in the price and you pay an extra 10 euros for it): croissants were not fresh, orange juice was awfull and i was refused an espresso, because the filter coffee was meant to be strong enough... which was far from true.
So, just avoid the breakfast, everything else is great!
Really nice clean hotel
My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at this hotel last week. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we even got to check in well before the 2pm timeline. Rooms are very small, but it seems that this is the case in most places over there, clean, all white with nice inset lighting on the headboard and in our front facing 5th floor room we had a great view of St Nicholas church as I have attached. Location is good, pretty much across from the central station and walking distance to everywhere else, we didn't actually get any public transport and saw everything we wanted. I would definitely stay here again.
Ultra Modern and Affordable
I stayed here by myself on buisiness and ..what a cool hotel!
Although small the public areas and rooms are SPOTLESS and all white!
My room was compact but with flat screen LCD tv,ultra-modern bathroom,aircon, etc. and really helpful and friendly staff made my short stay really nice. Really well located near Central Station, but on a quietish road.It was a good choice and I will stay there again.
New and Hip
Booked this hotel through the tourist bureau. Was less than ecstatic about it due to our previous nights stay at the IBIS near the airport (only place left with room). . our expectations were about as low as you can get but we wanted to have a room and be done with it. It turned out the modest Dutch way of just stating the facts really don't do this place justice. It is totally refurbished. The rooms are clean, ultra sleek, and have flat-screen TV's. It is probably the hippest hotel I've stayed in and was affordable too. It is in a great location right across from the train station and nearly everything is walk able. .I will note that we did wake up to a mouse in our room in the middle of the night trying to steal some treats out of a bag. icky! I'm sure this is just one of those things that happens when in a city of hundreds of years-old buildings. The hotel was spot-less, so I really think that if this happened here, It could happen anywhere. Would gladly stay here again. (without the snacks in the room)

... cake, babel cheeses, after 8 dinner mints, ginger nuts which Deb brought from NZ, oranges, croutons, chips, sugar lollies and mints! We won't go hungry until our trip home. Deb has gone off in search of something to spend her 9 euros on while I am sitting down typing this blog.
So this will be my last one. Hopefully the journey home will go well. Normally it is pretty sad to be on the homebound leg, but I am pretty keen to ...
... The nearby café 212 becomes our coffee spot for the next day and a half. His wife is a masseuse but as we have only one week to get back to the Netherlands, there is no time to stay and exchange our skills. After a quick sightseeing walk through Sofia (cosmopolitan), an amazing Dine&Wine&Chat dinner, and one more coffee with our Bulgarian host, it is time to hit the road. This time with Co-driver Mira sitting next to me and Haku in the back.
... some time out for a rest at 5 pm (hate to name drop but this time tomorrow we will be getting ready for our dinner at the Eiffel Tower!!) Beautiful blue skies to enjoy our canal tour which finished at 7 pm. A recce of the Railway Station to work out platform, directions and timings for our 8.15 am departure to Paris tomorrow. We enjoyed dinner at our restaurant from last night and returned home by 8.15 in time for Kelly to Repack, once again!! Sent from my ...
I asked an attendant at the airport in Amsterdam to be placed on an isle seat with my left arm on the outside. The lady ask if I would care to sit in First Class. She said there would be a lot of room, so I wouldn't get bumped. I asked her if she was serious, and she said yes.
I flew from Amsterdam to Newark, NJ First Class!!!!! It was wonderful!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!! I still can't!!!
