      Great hotel on the park

      Stayed for two days in July. Great little hotel right on Vondelpark. Clean rooms (we booked with private bathroom). Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast not included, but very fast and easy to use Wifi. We rented bikes from them (15 euro for 24 hrs, which is a bit pricier than the bike touring companies but then you'd have to pay 2,80 to ride the tram into town). Takes less than 10 minutes to bike into city centre.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Borgmann Villa Hotel Amsterdam

      Miss something but extremely OK !!!

      from

      Me and my fiance spent there 4 days ,the location is very good just outside the centre close to the Vondelpark and with tram line 2 you will reach the sights in 10-15 minutes .

      I made the booking trought my travel agency Nordic Italian Travel and we have realy enjoyed our stay there ,room 11 is great and has helped me to strike my girlfriend ...........

      We missed all the breakfast because 9:00 was too early for us but that is our fault not their ,I met also the Owners realy nice people but I met only them because there is nobody else on the desk and sometimes we had to find the informations on the street or on a travel guide we bought in Italy .

      At the end ..........People go there !!!!!!!!!!!

      Nice cosy place, very good deal for the price

      from

      I think this is the best area of Amsterdam -near calm green Vondel park, all build in with 19th century villas and at the same time so near the center. The hotel itself is also a former villa, so i understood that all rooms are different. Mine spacious double had a great balcony overlooking the Vondel park. The owners (a charming couple) really care about the guests and create homely ambiance. Very clean! Great place indeed.

      If quiet is what you seek.....

      from

      If you are the type of traveller who prefers to stay in quiet area away from tourist center, I have a perfect little hotel for you. Situated near the end of VondelPark, the Villa Borgmann may not be the most covenient hotel for the short term visitor, but if you have a few days, and don't mind exploring by tram or walking through gorgeous neighborhoods and parks, it is a great choice.

      The neighborhood is wealthy and reminiscent of New Orleans' Garden District or London's Hampstead, with large houses, beautiful architecture and lovely gardens throughout the area. There are also a decent number of cafes and shops scattered around the neighborhood...Not right out the door...but pretty close. Due to that fact, we chose to eat breakfast out of the hotel, sampling a few of the local cafes...Also, the regular continental breakfast seemed a touch pricey to us at 10euro.

      There are a couple of tram stops a few blocks from the hotel...and a fairly dedicated walk to Leidseplein is about 10-15 minutes through the park...allow 30 minutes in reality. It is about the same to Museumplein...depending on one's window shopping time on Williamsparkweg and P.C.Hoofstraat...

      The hotel itself is very pleasant; sparkling clean and friendly...We had Room #11, a front room with a beautiful floor to ceiling bay window. The blond furniture and the bay windows made the room seem quite large...The breakfast room is lovely; overlooking a small canal and the park...and there is also a small sitting area in the garden in the rear of the hotel, which I found to be a great place for my evening smoke.

      All in all, an excellent experience...

      Great stay at Borgmann Villa

      from

      I just got back from Amsterdam and the first two nights were spent at the Borgmann Villa Hotel. We had a nice, spacious room with two gently firm beds. The stairs were steep, as they are all over Amsterdam, but they also have an elevator. the morning breakfast was very good for the 10 euro that they charge. I would defintiely book a room there again. It is not in the center of the city which was great for me. Instead it is on beautiful Vondelpark where I could jog in the morning and stroll in the early evening.

      Best night's sleep for years

      from

      I look for 3 things in a hotel - space, sleep and a good shower. We got all 3 at Villa Borgmann. Our double room on the second floor was about 6 by 4 metres, the bathroom 3 by 3, about twice the normal size. The area is quiet at night and the local restrictions mean little traffic during the day. Add this to the linked twin beds and I got the best nights sleep I have had in any hotel for a very long time.We arrived 90 minutes late because of flight delay but were given at 9 p.m. an excellent description of the key areas of Amsterdam which took us through the 3 days of our stay. The staff continued friendly and helpful throughout. Walking from the hotel through the Vondel Park to the Museum area takes about 25 minutes. Tram line 2 is about 5 minutes walk ( you could stay in a hotel on a tram track and be further from the stop than this ).To reach the hotel from Schiphol we could not find the bus to Hofpark Hotel so we took the train into town and a taxi out. After 3 days of riding on the trams we got adventurous so our return was a walk across the park, tram no 1 to Lelylaan station, and a train to Schiphol taking an hour in total and costing 5 euros each. There are up to 5 trains an hour on this route.Obviously all this is personal, as are the potential disadvantages. If we had stayed in the centre we could have returned to our room during the day, but we would have seen less. Our method for getting a rest during the day was to take a boat trip. Also, if you take a car, there is street parking on Koningslaan with a charge from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at 1,80 euros per hour.With a work colleague having had a bad experience with noise and poor facilities in an Amsterdam city centre 2 star hotel, we were very pleased with what we got at the Villa Borgmann.

The boys got their first experience of a red light district - "why are those ladies standing in the windows in their undies", as well as some of the more unusual aromas coming out of the cafe's. Oli and I also did the Amsterdam Dungeon tour which was a bit scary both for the people jumping out of the dark at you, ...

A quick orientation of the city and we were off on our free time to explore on our own. Amsterdam has lovely architecture even if it is all on a lean. The area that the city was built on was a spongy marsh and as a consequence the buildings foundations have all shifted causing the buildings to start falling ..quite amusing to look at, would hate ...

They are all small but this one is livable. It is in an active neighborhood with lots of restaurants and nightlife. It was a beautiful sunny day and we wanted to take a canal cruise while the weather was good. Amsterdam has more than 200 days of rain ...

The train is clean and comfortable though we are riding backwards and it smells slightly of vomit. Lesson learned on Eurorail, we will do better next time. The countryside is beautiful and green with cute Dutch houses and cattle grazing. We fight sleep to see towns and ...
