Fantastic Hotel - Wonderful Welcome
Fabulous hotel, very friendly staff, delicious breakfast.
We had a spacious room with a balcony with a view on the canal.
I would highly recommend it - don't look any further.
THANKS for everything.
Highly Recommended Hotel and Staff
I would very highly recommend this hotel for its friendliness, good location, simple, clean, adequate appointments, helpful and welcoming staff and as a rare super find in Amsterdam. I visited in Jan for 6 nights from the USA.
Great Hotel!! highly recommended!!
I travelled to Amsterdam the second time this year and after a terrible stay at another hotel in 2005, I decided to read some reviews before I book anywhere and Hotel Freeland came up. It's was my first time at Hotel Freeland. Loved it from the beginning. Great location!! just a few seconds away from Leidesplein. The owners, Rick and Pascale, were great. They make you feel right at home. Breakfast was basic with coffee/tea, orange juice, bread and some ham and cheese. Rooms were basic but very clean and quiet. Free use of internet and tea and coffee available at the reception. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. wheter you're travelling alone, with a partner or with your family, Hotel Freeland is definetely the place to book.....Hopefully visiting again in December 2007 :)
Friendly bargain hotel in great location
I have now stayed at this hotel four times over a number of years, and enjoy it for friendliness, price and location. The rooms are quite small and basic, but completely fuctional. The bath is fine, and getting one in the room for this price in Amsterdam make this place a real bargain.
The location is an easy tram ride from the train station (there is also a convenient night bus for early morning departures), and this is a great location to explore all of Amsterdam on foot.
However, the three and four day tickets for all transport are a fantastic bargain, even if you love to walk like me.
Leidesplein is loaded with an incredible array of restaurants, cafes, and pubs, all within minutes of the hotel. I will definitely stay at the Freeland again when in Amsterdam.
I agree with everyone else, really nice hotel, great location, lovely staff and nice clean quiet rooms.
The stairs are steep but this seems to be the norm in Amsterdam and just think of all those burnt calories...
Contacted the Freeland based on the reviews here at TripAdvisor. I was pleased.
The hotel was very well located in the Leidsplein...very popular and happening part of Amsterdam. Per the instructions on the website, the hotel was very easy to find from Central train station.
The hotel was as described. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Rooms were small but comfortable and clean. I had a single En Suite. Breakfast was provided (egg, bread, cheese, meat, tea/coffee) but I only had it one morning due to some late nights. Free internet in the lobby which I had no trouble accessing. All in all a great stay in a great city. Hotel is close to Museum area and all major attractions/sites are a short tram ride away. Very recommended!
Have fun climbing the steps!
I was warned that Amsterdam hotels were fairly basic so I had low expectations. Having said that I had a nice stay at the Freeland. Great location close to Leidesplein - plenty of "coffee shops" nearby, all in all a great place to base myself for exploring amsterdam. Staff very friendly and helpful. Anywhere you stay in the budget range in Amsterdam you are going to have to climb the stairs - and they are stairs unlike anything else you have come across - very narrow and very steep. As for the room - basic, and once I got over that and accepted the fact it was fine. Ask for a room on the first floor! at the end of the day, the last thing you feel like is being a mountain goat and I thanked the higher powers that I wasn't another floor or 2 or 3 up! Free Internet in lobby. Welcoming atmosphere. Basic rooms. Bfast nothing to write home about but saw you through to lunchtime. Fabulous city! can't wait to go back there but may try somewhere else on a second visit.
Cheap but clean
Stayed here whilst attending a trade show in the city. The single room was very small and sparsely furnished however it was clean and adequate for the little time I spent at the hotel.
The bathroom was also small but again was clean and nice white towels were provided daily.
Breakfast was simple but nice and served with a smile.
Given the prices charged by larger hotels this was very good value and I will return.
The hotel was nice and we felt very welcome and "at home". The room was clean and ok, and the bathroom the same. The shower was very good with lots of water in it. The stairs are very steep, but we found them charming. The breakfast was ok and the coffee excellent. The juice was also very good. The staff was very helpful and nice and the hotel is situated very close to Leidse plein with many nice restaurants and also close to museums. This is absolutely a hotel we can recommend.
Very good place
The hotel is easy to find, and run by very pleasant and helpful people. The room was clean and attractive, and the breakfast provided in the morning was simple but quite good--especially the coffee! We weren't in Amsterdam long, but the hotel made our stay very pleasant. Highly recommended.

... to Dubai as our ‘summer vacation’ (which we did not have because of the Q2 review in the US that is always exactly in the week the boys are off……) and weeks before we had been watching the video’s of the waterpark at the hotel (Atlantis the Palm) online with Mats and Ole. This waterpark has to be one of the most magnificent in the world for kids, with incredible slides and a waterriver of 1 mile that takes you through the aquarium where you ...
... I stepped out of the car on to the curbside check-in. I said goodbye to my dad and walked through the automatic doors to bag check and so it began. It went all smoothly. Got through bag check, through security (still have a perfect record of not getting my balls touched by a TSA person) and now I sat and waited to be boarded. Decided I should eat because who the hell knows what disgusting thing they serve ...
... happily informs me we can go now, I slowly navigate my way to the street, only two blocks? Easy! The only reason I'm coming is because I need fresh air and because I love Wasp. Two blocks when you're this stoned is equivalent to 10 blocks, this walk seemed like it was half an hour in each direction. As we walk, I shuffle sideways between on coming people, I feel like I need to or they will walk into me, I see them turning their heads though which leads me to believe this pathway ...

We opened our door to find six Irish girls passed out in the middle of the afternoon surround by everything from empty alcohol bottles, makeup wipes, used cue tips, piles of clothes, straighteners with cords going everywhere…..it was a massive slap in the face that's for sure… All we wanted to do was drop our stuff shower and leave…. And we did. We trimmed it back ...
