... died at the hands of the Nazis. Though not as comprehensive as some other museums, this didn’t really need to be - even having never read the story, just being there and seeing the place that had been a sanctuary for 8 people for several years, was sufficient. After lunch I made a trip into town and across on the ferry to Amsterdam’s Noord district, an area very different to the city yet only a 5 minute ferry trip away on a peninsula. With only a short time to explore ...

Unexpected Final Day in Amsterdam

  • I made it back out to the airport, caught my flight, and made it to Barcelona around 11:30PM. Since the metro was no longer running by the time I left the airport, I decided to splurge and pay for a taxi (I had my momīs voice in my head encouraging me to do so).

Kind of a bummer. i felt like the entire day was wasted because we were trying to get high and it wasn't working. I even got another muffin at another store and was still fine. Lame. We stayed in Amsterdam until night so we could see the red light district!! ...

After that Ali and I had a Harry Potter shot, I think it was some sort of tequila and something else, but it had a slice of orange on top of it. They lit the bench on fire and when the fire went out we shot it down. It was okay, pretty gross though. Then Ben and I had a Toasted Marshmallow shot which pretty cool. They lit up the bench so we could toast ...

    ... was not even bottled water to be had and the restroom water said NO DRINKING. The next 4 hours were relatively comfortable except for my hunger, since I had consumed my little sandwich hours before. Thank god for the nuts I packed. The lesson here is: always have PLENTY of water and a bit of extra food when going on a train, or plane, or bus for that matter… you never know how things will turn out.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Lloyd Hotel Amsterdam

      Check the room first

      from

      The reception area is far from welcoming. We had two rooms, the first a double which was so small one of us had to sit on the bed while the other stood up and the second a single, was enormous. We asked for a different room and got one without a hassle. Transportation to Central Station is excellent but a taxi back at night is expensive. Parking was outrageous! Wouldn't stay again.

      Good Buzz Doesn't Deliver

      from

      As much as I love good design and unique hotel experiences, the Lloyd was a great disappointment. Our room, at almost $200 per night, was cramped and unattractive. Our bathroom, which the staff referred to as a sculpture, was a large, plastic unit with a tiny room housing the toilet and another housing the shower. The plastic material used for our bathroom "sculpture" gave off an extemely unpleasant odor not unlike those of Porta Potties.

      Unless you're willing to pay quite a bit for an "artistic" environment, avoid the Lloyd.

      We Really Wanted to Like It

      from

      Let me start by staying that we really wanted to like the Lloyd. We are experienced travelers with a taste for boutique hotels and modern design. We came to the hotel with great expectations, but have to admit to mild disappointment.

      Weird, but not so good.

      from

      We stayed with a group of people in this hotel. So i had a look in 5 different rooms. The check-in time is the first problem: very late (15h pm). The second one is the tiny counter to welcome the public: makes you waiting too long. The furniture in the lounge is the worst ever seen in a 2+ star hotel (reminds me my student room with second hand stuff).

      Interesting, great, one sour note

      from

      The hotel is definitely not for someone looking for the "standard" fare. Checked in quite early with no problem. Was asked if a "conceptual" room was OK with me. Boy was it conceptual! The room had a lime green fiberglas lavatory/tub/sink unit snaking through it. All the other furniture was stuff I would subsequently see in design stores around town. I found the staff helpful and attitude-free. Only ate breakfast there, at the counter, which was conducive to conversation with strangers and felt friendly. Very convenient to the tram for getting to the centrum but a pricey cab ride back if you stay out late. My big complaint: bad post-visit guest service. Having thought I left something in my room, I sent an e-mail the next day. This message, and a follow up, went unanswered.

      Contemporary look hotel

      from

      We stayed at Lloyd Hotel in October 2005. Staff were very helpful. My husband loved the hotel but I thought it looked ok. When entering the hotel it reminds of a visit for a hospital checkup it seemed cold, not cosy, it reminded me of also a batchelor pad no plush furnishings, if you like very contemporary you'll like this, to my horror there was not a full length mirror, I therfore had to run out to check my outfit on the lift mirror, also the bathroom mirror was quite high, I had to stand on a chair to do my makeup. We had a door in our room to enter an adjoining room. You could hear your neighbours coughing. My complaints are small ones but when your paying that price, I just expected a bit more of everyday items like drawers and a wardrope etc. The food was nice not amazing but nice. Also one last comment the shower was weird. To describe it, it was open plan, not good for privacy and not good for their wooden floor, which was already showing signs of damage. One last comment the staff spoke very good english and were very helpful.

      Urban explorations

      from

      I arrived about 12.30am from meetings in Rotterdam and found the reception staff welcoming. So tired that night that I didn't take into too many details of my room except that the bathroom was open plan - novel, and gives you room to move around - but the next morning I could not believe the height of the bedroom ceiling! I lay for fifteen minutes as I was a figure in a chapel, gathering my thoughts. Which as

      Saved our lives!

      from

      We were stuck in a bad situation on New Year's eve (see review of hotel waterfront) and the Amsterdam tourist office sent us to the Lloyd. Although a bit far out of the centre (10 mins in a taxi) it was worth it for the quality. Both myself and my friends had nice rooms. Mine was a bit smaller but beautifully decorated, and my friend's room was bigger, but the floor was unfinished. The views were lovely from both rooms. The hotel staff were very helpful and gave us advice on transport and other matters. I would stay here again.

      Decent stay at the Lloyd Hotel

      from

      We stayed in one of the shared bathroom units of the Lloyd Hotel last weekend. It was perfect for us since we just needed a place to stay for one night but it would probably be uncomfortable for people staying for more than one night. First of all the room was very small with hardly any place to put your luggage. The shared toilet and shower was alittle bit weird because there was no way to lock the door from the inside so you had to constantly be on edge while doing your business. There is no wash basin or mirror in the hotel room, only in the shower room. If you are arriving by train to Amsterdam, there is a bus (no.32) that gets you from the Centraal Station to the area of the Lloyd Hotel but if we didn't find a really nice lady to help us find the hotel, we would've been wandering around since there are no clear signs as to where the hotel is located. Otherwise, there is a streetcar (No. 10) that is located directly behind the hotel that takes you into the city center, to the Leidseplein (takes about 10-15 minutes). I also think the price for the room was alittle too expensive considering the location and the scarce amenities. Positive things: the comforter and pillows were really plush and comfortable, they give you nice complimentary soap and shampoo, there is a 24 hour restaurant downstairs, the location is quiet and shows you a different side of Amsterdam.

      Dreadful

      from

      We stayed at this hotel the first weekend it opened so expected some teething problems. However this hotel has nothing to offer. It looks like a hospital, it has rooms like a hospital and the staff treat you like you are an extra in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. The check in was painful, there was no room service menu, the location is in the middle of a building site. There are no wardrobes or chests of drawers. The toilet is in the middle of the room for those that like having absolutely no privacy. The only redeeming factor is the food which is good. The menu is incomprehensible however and the restaurant is full of extras
