Historical Traveler Reviews Trianon Hotel Amsterdam
Very good location
Good stay at TRIANON
I stayed there from 03rd to 05th AUGUST 2005.
The room i had bookd was a single one (it means a single bed) with bathroom ensuite.
I found the bathroom quite big but the room was like a corridor (it was what i expected so i was not disappointed).
The room was clean and the staff friendly.T
The only thing i regretted was that there was no remote control for tv so once you are in bed you have to get out off your bed every time you want to chage the channel.
The breakfast which was included as i had booked through expedia was typical dutch one (gouda, smoked meat,yoghourt,juices,hot bevergae, bread, jams,honey and butter).
The location was just 2 minures walk from the tram station museuplein (line 5 and 2) on the corner.
It is also 5 minutes walk to the VAn Gogh museum and the RIjksmuseum.
All in all a good choices for people who intend to be not far from the museums and with good access to the public transports.
I will definitely return .
Lower end of budget class hotels
While I wasn't expecting the lap of luxury, this hotel was very poor.
I was in a single room barely 5 ft wide. At one point, because of the location of a table, there was only 12 inches of space available to squeeze by. (I had to put the chair on the bed to get past)
Surprisingly, the bed was actually a bunk bed. The top part was folded up against the wall. I could not imagine 2 people sharing this room.
Other gripes: I had to leave a deposit of €15.00 to get a remote control for the TV. The shower had to be hand-held as the bracket on the wall was so loose the water simply dribbled down the wall. The shower was fitted over a half-bath. I didn't have a problem with that. However, the sides of the bath were extremely high and it was quite difficult to step out and in with doing oneself a mischief.
Having paid a significant single room supplement, I would have expected something a little better for my money.
I concur with the other reviewers regarding creaking floorboards, musty smell etc. Having said that, bedding was clean, water was very hot and an adaquate number of clean towels were provided.
I would have like Tea/coffee making facilities.
Carpet was filthy. Beds were uncomfortable. No heating in the room. What else can I say but avoid this hotel ! Staff were friendly though as with a smile we were told their hotel was booked out and couldn't change our rooms. Oh, good location.
Telling it like it is
The Trianon hotel was fairly easy to find ( best if you go by taxi-worth the €35 to prevent getting lost) the hotel has a nice reception, small and cosy. Most of the staff are friendly though they didn't say much and didn't offer much advice on where to go or how to get there when asked. The hotel doesn't have the bar it claims to have, it has a small desktop fridge that sell coca-cola sized tins of Heinekin beer for €2 each and it has a vending machine that is also quite sparse yet expensive. In the lounge there is a tea/coffee machine and a cup of soup machine that you pay for using although we found these by chance they were not pointed out to us at any time during our stay. The rooms were plain and small especially for a double room, it had single beds though it was ensuite. The important thing was that the rooms were very clean! The ensuite was supposed to have a hairdryer but it didn't work. The bath/shower was a bit odd shaped but it worked and the water was warm, the toilet was strange but if you go you'll see what i mean for yourself.
The breakfast consisited of bread,cheese,ham,cornflakes,tea,coffee and juice-not great but it did the job. The reception also contains some cards that offer discounts on attractions and restaurants,bars etc and were worth looking through. The Trianon was close to all the major museams etc. So enjoy your trip!!!!!
The hotel overall was reasonable it was clean and tidy didn't offer anything special but since it was only to sleep in it was fine.
Nice Friendly Hotel - Excellent Value For Money!!!
Q & L from London (stayed from the 11th Feb 2005 - 14th Feb 2005)
We read the reviews on this hotel and was put off from the start.
But.. when we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly suprised! The rooms are very basic, but the friendly staff, the quality of the cleaning and the quiteness of the hotel, were all things that added to a most enjoyable stay. I would certainly stay at this hotel again, and wonder what hotel the other people were staying in? This is a good 2 star hotel and certainly value for money!
Avoid this hotel
this hotel is very poor value for money the breakfast consisted of bread only with beverage. the decor is poor the service of the staff unhelpful . the carpet in my room i could only describe as filthy .iwrote a letter of complaint but did not receive a reply AVOID !
Great location but.....
Hotel is in a great location for many attractions either on foot or by bus or tram. Nearest bus and stram stop a minutes walk away. Hotel is in a nice area with a park accross the road. Rooms are ridiculous though. Very small, and very grubby looking. Was terrified to let anything drop on the floor!! Door is very thin which means you can hear everyone outside your room, and as the floor boards creak so loudly you might be woken up by people walking rather than talking! Breakfast was ok but would have expected a much greater choice.
Great Location but... Part II
I stayed there in April 2003, but never again. I agree with the previous reviewer - nice exterior, excellent location, BUT... inside it's still scruffy and drab, carpet is still stained, floors creak loudly.My double room was barely 5 ft wide with bunk beds. Bathroom had one towel. Climbing 2-3 ft into the half-sized bath/shower was dangerous, with only the (loose!) sink to hold onto.Buffet breakfast OK, but coffee was weak (rare in Amsterdam), and running out of popular items well before breakfast time was over. Only the weak coffee was replenished.
Great Location but...
Hotel Trianon is in a very good location, behind the Concertgebouw in the centre of Amsterdam. Most of the city's attractions are within walking distance. Staff are very helpful and breakfast is perfectly adequate. Rooms in the hotel, however, are in dire need of a facelift. Carpets are badly stained, icy-cold bathrooms with no heating, rooms are generally not so clean. No major complaints otherwise, but Trianon is certainly not the lap of luxury! Then again, you get what you pay for.

... to grinding plants to make rich dye. This brief stopover included a visit to a cheese-maker, chocolatie-maker, and even a wooden clog cobbler!
Next, I was whisked away into Amsterdam proper. I'd like to say that the first thing that catches the eye is the Amstel River....but really nothing prepared me for the sheer amount of bicycles. Thousands of them....entire car garages full of them. Unbelievable.

... unit which slid along a pole, and when lined up with a model, lit it up and gave details about the ship. It was great when there weren't many visitors, but wouldn't work well when the museum is crowded. There were displays of figureheads, photo albums taken by sailors, of navigational instruments and the stars. Outside the museum is a full size model of the 'Amsterdam', a ship that sank on its maiden voyage in the 1700s. We clambered around ...
