While in Amsterdam last weekend we stayed at Hotel V in Fredriksplein (a square in the city). We always like to stay at small, hip boutique hotels. We usually shun networks. Not because they’re bad, but because we’re looking for a more unique experience.
Amsterdam has a whole bunch of hotels to offer, including notable boutiques like the Dylan. But our good friend Maria, who lives and works in Amsterdam, recommended Hotel V.
It was a very good call. The hotel is great. Good-sized rooms, excellent service, fun warm comfortable lobby, good location, and a good price.
The location is not amazing but it’s very convenient. It’s within walking distance to everything, and is literally right on the #4 tram. You can be in the center of everything in 5-10 minutes. But it’s not on a canal. I would have liked to stay on a canal. We’ll do that next time.
I really have to say service was above-and-beyond at this hotel, from start to finish. The staff was friendly and cheerful, available 24 hours a day, and helped with all of our requests without any trouble. The free fast internet was nice as well.
