I stayed here on Bank Holiday Sunday which I appreciate would have been a very busy time for the hotel. Firstly the staff were amazing and really went out of their way to help me.

Quirky hotel, full of character. Each room very different - and you can pick your * rating according to your budget. Amazing and helpful staff from reception to restaurant and meeting rooms. Good value option for a work meeting or visit.

in a quiet neighborhood 5 mins by tram from Amsterdam Centraal, this hotel is nothing like you've been...unique decor and design like you probably never seen in a hotel, artsy, bold character, two star to 5 star rooms, .helpful and interesting staff.

Historical hotel with fab rooms only 10 mins regular tram trip from Amsterdam station. We had an unusually designed room with a shower in the centre which was great. Staff were great too. We just loved being in the hotel, from the room, to the leisurely breakfasts. I had my 50th Birthday here and it was spot on : )

We had two fantastic nights at the Lloyd in one of their two-star rooms in the attic (they have everything from one-star to five-star under one roof). Everything about our stay was fabulous -- the beds were comfy, the rooms were quirky and attractive, the halls were fun to explore (highly recommend walking around the place), the staff was helpful,...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Lloyd Hotel - very well located, only a few minutes away by tram from the centre. Tram stop going everywhere right around the corner and local supermarkets on the same street. Checking in was no problem at all and we were very excited to check into our room due to the unique selling...

I like unique hotel style, modern/artistic with older architecture. 24 hour reception. Restaurant in hotel. Very friendly & helpful staff...appreciated English speaking but that seems majority of Netherlands. Courtyard in back great for eating outside & smoke cigarettes. Though unused like idea of ferry/boat access.

Lloyd has a whole series of very cool rooms to chill out in - reading room, plant room, lounge room, large dining room, intimate dining room, library, newspaper room. It was really cool to explore the art and design throughout. I really enjoyed my stay and wish I had more time to simply chill in the hotel.

Good: located in the centre of Amsterdam this is a good place if you want to visit the city. The atmosphere and interior have a unique vibe. It's a meeting place as well as a hotel. Room for improvement: a shower curtain would be nice
