      Historical Traveler Reviews Aalborg Hotel Amsterdam

      Small but fine !!!

      from

      I stayed there for 4 nights for business.

      Room is tiny but very clean. Very friendly staff.

      Looks like just renovated.

      During my stay, the breakfast room was under renovation.

      I suppose when this renovation is done, this hotel looks really good.

      Several tram stops are located very close to the hotel.

      Max. 10 min to the exhibition center, 15 min to the central station.

      Not a luxury hotel, but I recommend this hotel for both business and private.

      Spotlessly clean room

      from

      My single room was incredibly tiny and an older person would struggle with trying to take a shower in the even tinier bathroom.

      BUT you get what you pay for and don't get what you don't pay for.

      The bed was very comfortable and the room spotlessly clean. The breakfast was modest, but adequate. Absolutely fine all in all.

      I broke my glasses when I slipped on a tram journey. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful in finding me an optician to do an emergency repair.

      I would definitely recommend this hotel to young people on a sightseeing holiday.

      Just fine

      from

      A fine hotel for our needs on our trip to Amsterdam.

      The purpose for our trip was to go to several concerts at the Concertgebouw, and as this hotel is a 10 minutes walk from the venue, this hotel was perfect for us. We only spent the nights at the hotel anyway, so we didn't need luxury.

      The room was clean, the beds good and the bathroom just fine. Our room was on the first floor, 5 steps to walk to the breakfast room. The breakfast was basic consisting of corn-flakes, bread , toast, cheez, ham, salami, jam, boiled eggs etc. But we really didn't miss anything.

      Will stay here again the next time we are going for a Concertgebouw concert-weekend to Amsterdam.

      An experience

      from

      A group of colleagues and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel whilst attending the ESICM conference at the RAI. For location it is excellent only 20 minutes brisk walk to the conference centre (6 minutes run if in a hurry). The town centre is about a 40 minute walk but it is easier to get a tram from the end of the road a number 4 or 25. There is also a great bar/cafe/restraunt on the corner of the park opposite the hotel. As for the hotel my colleagues and I had never laughed so much. Firstly they checked out my room a single with views over the park. Now this room (room 30) was small such that I could touch both walls across the width of the room and if I was any taller than my 6ft 2 inch I would have to sleep with my feet out of the window. The bed was reasonably comfortable but I dont remember spending much time in it anyway. The bathroom well what can I say? A pleasant british racing green tiled thing with the smallest bath I have ever seen. The bath incidently doubled as the shower and had a lovely slope from one end almost down to the plug hole. I guess a contortionist could bend to sit in the bath but I had a struggle to get in and nearly called the fire brigade to get out. Room was relatively clean and tidy, mind you the room wasnt exactly big. The TV remote did not work, no tea/coffee making facilities. My colleagues had a twin and a quad between them (There were no other twins left). The twin (room 1)on the ground floor had no opening windows and a broken window fan. The beds were so close together that it may as well have been called a double room. The quad room (room 12) had two beds plus some sort of fold down bed supposed to be a double (not) the bathroom was normal size with full size bath although the plug did not fit properly but this didnt matter as the water drianage was poor. Breakfast was okay with cereals yoghurt and ham and cheese not inspired but okay all the same. Customer service was variable with occasionally very helpfull and occasionnaly not at all helpfully but mostly in between. I would use this hotel again for its cheap price and location and as I wasn't spending much time in it.

      Basic

      from

      I'm in my last night (of four) here, in Amsterdam for a conference. I booked into the Aalborg because it is convenient both for the RAI centre and the city centre/attractions, and less pricey than alternatives I was able to find on a 'net search (before finding tripadvisor.com). I've stayed at many far nicer hotels at one quarter of the price, but not in Amsterdam.

      Rather a lot of people at the conference have reported disappointment with their hotels here. So lets start with what's good. The location is great, surrounded by some wonderful cafes, restaurants, and within reasonable walking distance of everything. The staff are pleasant. Breakfast is decent, though not inspired. The bed is clean and reasonably comfy. And I can open my bedroom window - or rather skylight - wide, without excessive traffic noise. Finally, there's wireless LAN, though it's intermittent.

      Having said that, it's a disappointment overall. The bedroom is minute, and very cramped, and the bathroom even more so, so that taking a shower is something of a contortionists exercise. Combine that with the incredibly steep and narrow stairs, and it's definitely not somewhere to come if you're any fatter than me, or not too agile (hey, I'm fortysomething and overweight, but fit and healthy). The whole place is rather shabby, and the towels look clean but don't smell too good. There's no view at all. And although traffic noise is moderate, noise from within the hotel, including the lift, is not good. It's also quite a lot warmer than outside: that's OK now in May, but could be unpleasant in high summer.

      Im beating myself up as to what to say....

      from

      My views on this hotel are quite mixed. We booked a quad room and when we arrived it turned out to be a twin room with a large single fold down bed. The duvet covers were not the cleanest and we had no towels..however, this was quickly resolved when we spoke to the chap on the front desk. Later that night after a few sherrys etc we returned to the room to see the store cupboard had been left open..with a mattress in it. Well we decided to take it and hope for the best!. It was obvious the following day that the staff were aware of us nicking stuff from the cupboard but it was graciously ignored.. Fab!. Hotel location is average.. although tram leaves from literally just round the corner and will take you to Dam square for about E1.60.. very regular as well. Also very nice little restaurant on the corner - great breakfast. Breakfast in the hotel was okay - if you like cheese and ham.. and eggs...and cheese. On the whole this was not the cleanest hotel ive stayed in, but the staff were great and prob the friendliest ive come across. Despite the hotel having a very, very dodgy lift.. and VERY small stairs, this was one of my most enjoyable trips.. so what can i say?. I think id say give it a go..what do you have to lose?!

      Absolutely Fine

      from

      I was looking for a modest hotel for one night and found the Aalborg through a search engine. My room and en-suite were very small but with a desk and view of the park. My breakfast was very good and served in a pleasant dining room. I would certainly return to this hotel myself. The room was clean and I imagine that a family would be given a perfectly acceptable (and larger) room. Service was friendly.

Approximately 40% of the Netherlands lies below sea level and floods have been a common occurrence so drainage is an important matter. Water ...

      Flight to Amsterdam

      A travel blog entry by randylehs on Sep 27, 2014

      For our flight to Amsterdam we had booked economy comfort seats with Delta which actually for me were well better than expected I had some legroom and we both sat in a two side seat situation where there was four seats in the middle and then two more on the other side so we were kind of separated off and it was very nice and a decent ride They had great movies and audio and a ...

      Day 9 - Amsterdam exploration continues

      ... to our room and got ready for our red light district walking tour. We thought the tour started at 8pm so got there at 730pm...turns out it starts at 7pm. Oh well no stress we will go tomorrow night. In a way I was relieved as I was exhausted from a massive day. Instead we went to Kobe Japanese Restaurant and then collapsed into bed with a food coma. I am so glad I bought stretchy pants for this holiday.

      Tomorrow is our last day in Amsterdam.

      ... me a hefty $200 fee for that leg of the trip so I left my $50 rebuilt board on the island! In an attempt to avoid more baggage fees I then re-sized the bag to fit a 146x44 cm twin tip. American Airlines then managed to lose my bag in route to Costa Rica. When it finally showed up 3 days later from Quito, Ecuador, it smelled like a donkey had ****** on it but all of my gear was intact and I paid nothing in fees! By this time, the handles on my bag looked like they were about to ...

      ... Amsterdam. Inbetween we drove to Belgium and we met Jeni Auntie along the way. We stayed with her for a night and day at her house in a different city (can't remember the name right now). She took us out for Chinese food and also went for a walk to a local beer place. Then doggies met up with us at Jeni's place so that we could drive together to Belgium. We rented hotel for one night and we did the touristy stuff. Great experience and lots of good ...
