Would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves quirky. This is a joy of a hotel on every front. If you love good food, friendly staff, orchids, views of the harbour and really interesting arty aspects, this is the place for you. Simple, clean rooms too.

I loved my stay at the Lloyd Hotel, which is easy to reach from the station in only four tram stops. You can choose the category, from budget to 4 star category, which is great. I appreciated most its charming vintage style, the cleanliness, the nice little details, the amazing dining room, the library and exhibition rooms, the beautiful flowers,...

So, 3 "stars" is average, but 4 "stars" is very good. I believe I would give the Lloyd 3.5 for good. We enjoyed our stay, but there were definitely things we would have changed.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. Did you know the hotel has 117 almost all different rooms? If a room doesn't meet your expectations, you can always go to the reception and ask if there is another room available. The staff from the reception will do everything they can to help you. We hope to welcome you again soon....

This place used to be hip - at least when it opened many years ago. They have rooms of different quality/stars inside the same building and contemporary dutch design by MVRDV. Unfortunately, they seem to think that the above is enough to treat people with arrogance and disrespect. Unfortunately it is not - as others have mentioned on this forum....

Even if you stay elswhere in Amsterdam, the Lloyd Cultural Embassy id worth a visit. If dinner is as good as breakfast, I would certainly recommend it. The breakfast offers what you expect and more. There is a personal touch to what is served like an eggsallad, a cucumber chutney or the freshly pressed juices. I really enjoyed this place,...
