 "A nice and friendly place to stay"
The main reason to why we choose this hotel was that it was included in a novel for teenagers that I read, called "The fault in our stars". The hotel surved our purposes. We were three friends that chared a triple room with comfortable beds and a lot of space. The staff were helpful and friendly and they had put a personal touch to the hotel in many ways. The hotel was near Vondelpark, which was nice and a Place you need to visit.

 "Lovely hotel."
A lovely welcome greeted us on arrival from the extremely friendly staff. Our room was situated in the building opposite the main hotel. There were some very steep steps leading to all floors and no lift. this could be troublesome for some people. There is a lift in the main building so check in advance if you have any mobility issues.The room its self was very pleasantly decorated and had the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in a hotel. Our room was in the basement so there was no view. To compensate however there was a set of Victorian doors leading out to a private garden that only had access from our room and the room next door. The bathroom was slightly dated but everything worked and there was always plenty of hot water available for a shower., no matter what time of dayThe room had a small writing desk and coffee table but unfortunately there was no kettle in the room to make a cuppa.The Reception and bar were open all night. The bar prices were comparable with those found in the the pubs and bars in the city.The Hotels location could not be more perfect. Just 2 minutes walk and you are in the middle of the Vanda Park and less than 10 minutes walk from the night life and shopping districts. far enough away to be peaceful but close enough to the city to be practicable.

If you want a good night's sleep while in Amsterdam but you still want to be within walking distance of all the fun, then the Hotel de Filosoof is a good choice for you.You don't have to be a philosopher to like this hotel - you just have to like hotels with charm and style.

 "Friendly staff, great location"
Pros: Friendly staff, great location
Cons: Paying 'upfront' hotel was very 'tired'. our rooms were not 'themed' & were in the basement of a building opposite the hotel - door numbers were bits of paper stuck to the door
