Well, we landed safe and sound (although the flight kinda sucked - no turbulence but the front part of the plane was SUPER hot). We got our belongings, bought a SIM card for our European phone (thanks Mike), and made our way on transit to our hotel...sort of. We were initially directed to where our hotel would be...but can't really understand the …

TravelPod Member ReviewsBorgmann Villa Hotel Amsterdam
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 !!!
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
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 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.
Great stay at Borgmann Villa
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.
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.
