When I first arrived at the hotel the service was blunt and rude. They asked for either my credit card details or my a deposit of 100 euros. As I was unable to afford to give 100 euros I gave them my card details. They immediately withheld the money on my card and are now refusing to give it back...

I have never reviewed a hotel in my life, nor have I ever stayed at such a creepy and disgusting place. I arrived on a morning flight from the States and reception told me my room was already ready. I was very excited to have a room so early as this is rarely the case. The man at the reception...

The location of the hotel was convenient; 2 min walk away from the tram stop that takes you to the centre or any other main areas of the city in about 10 min. When we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist was quite cold but polite. We were given 2 maps of the city and 2 keys for the room....

Poorly designed room (bed in middle of floor surrounded by electric wires for all sorts of things, shower in middle of room too so had to get dressed on a soaking tiled floor, huge cupboard full of shelves but no wardrobe, sink with no plug so hard to shave at) - whoever designed this didn't think at all about what...

This hotel is great fun, all the rooms are different and have really quirky features. If you want a room with a big modern bathroom, fitted wardrobes a trouser press and a kettle don't stay here. If you would like a room that will make you smile and you don't mind being taken be surprise this is a great place....

I'm a regular guest in the Lloyd Hotel and I like it every time. I've stayed in 5,4,3 and 2 starred rooms (I've skipped the 1-star-room, with the shared bath room). All rooms are different, but all bright, clean, nice wooden floors, nice duvets. A fantastic building, great staff - can't think of things I don't like

Every space in this hotel is surprising, unexpected and simply pretty design everywhere you look. One might say some of it is design for design's sake, losing all practically (for example; I couldn't leave my room with dry feet. But the shower is magnificent and surprisingly placed in the middle of the room, love the insect tiles). If you want...

I paid a lot for my stay, about £568 for 6 nights, which was a shock in itself. I did book just a month in advance however, but what I did not know is it was "International Business Week" during my stay and apparently this pushed the prices up. It was the most expensive hotel I have paid for for...

I keep returning to the Lloyd Hotel. Each time I'm in Amsterdam. That, in itself, is the ultimate review. I have stayed there at least six times and I still enjoy it. I like the history. An emigrant hotel on the edge of Europe. The last stop for emigrants before embarking for the New World. I like the concept. A...
