            • Older travelers

              The helpfulness of the staff, the location near the Vondelpark, and the charm of the hotel, make this one of our favourites. This was our second stay at the Hotel de Filosoof and we hope to return.

              We were shocked at first that we were allocated a room across the road in an annex, an inferior room, not worth the price. When we asked, however, we were accomodated in the same room we had occupied 4 years ago, in the main building. As people from the annexes share the same breakfast facilties these have now become more crowded. The hotel is in danger of outgrowing its original charm if this expansion continues.

              Very helpful staff who even rang restaurants to help us with dinner reservations during extremely busy 8 May weekend. We really appreciated their customer service and liked the slightly quirky shabby chic decor. We looked hard for a non 'standard' chain hotel on a peak weekend and Filosoof is just that. One direct tram line to Central station and beautiful residential location by Vondelpark, which is why we chose Filosoof.

              Breakfast - overpriced, nothing fresh - except overboiled eggs and brown, overripe bananas - for 15EUR/hd. Even the fruit salad was canned, bain marie was baked beans (canned), boiled eggs, and soggy little dutch pancakes. Rest was bread, cheese, packet spreads, nothing prepared fresh by the kitchen, expresso size cups on table are too small for tea drinkers! And they took the daybed out of our room where we had our suitcases etc and gave it to another guest - without consulting us - we came back one night and there was just a big gap where our main furniture had been! No explanation. For a 'deluxe room' at 150EUR I was a bit surprised, even for a 3* hotel..Overall happy to stay again but breakfast at Café Vertigo in Vondelpark recommended.

              The hotel is located in a quiet street

              Although there are Public Transport services close, you are 30-minute walk distant from the city centre! and taxis are pretty expensive.

              Nice location next to the park and very close to the museums. Interesting ambiance, with themed rooms, quotations on the walls and books all over.

              Poor value, way too spartan for its price. Gross misrepresentation about Internet availability -- there is only an open network in the reception area, not the slightest trace of signal in the rooms. And don't use the phone, it's a total ripoff -- they will log excessively long calls instead of their actual length and overcharge you accordingly.

              Location near Vondelpark and tram line 1

              We asked for quiet room already when booking. Our room #2 was under corridor from reception to breakfast room, so all steps were clearly heard day and night and hotel was fully booked. We were given another room #20 for rest of stay which was supposed to be with bath, but was not. Room was also very small and the bed was collapsed.

              friendly staff and helpful. Decoration associated to the philosphy

              poor wall soundproofing; on the same floor, when the door of an other room is closed or somebody talking in the corridor, easily all noise could be catch up

              We liked the location near to Vondelpark and ease of access to the city without being in the busy centre.Staff were very pleasant on checking in and out.

              We had booked a deluxe/superior room and we were disappointed at the size and also the dark decor - room 18 - which was not at all what we had expected from the website pictures.

              Big room with door to garden area. Comfortable beds. Clean environment. Friendly staff who helped us with requests at all times.

              Narrow stairways which are not easily negotiated by everyone. Disappointed by breakfast, which was not good value for money at €15.

              The location of the hotel.

              The premises are up to some maintenance/renovation. The entrance hall with red carpet has known its hey days whereas the walls were full of bumps caused by luggage. This does not make a good impression when you enter. Tiny bathroom although we had a deluxe room. Overall price/quality: could be improved.

              Lovely large room with comfortable bed, and bathroom with bath and shower. Individually decorated rooms (I assume), and a nice selection of books and magazines.

              The heating had been left full-on the day I arrived, so my room was like a sauna when I arrived. Also the free wifi signal was very weak in my room.

              good location, charming atmosphere, simple, great shower, near the tram, comfortable, windows that open, quiet.

              posted rate from did not include some taxes or breakfast, and separate cost of breakfast seemed high
