As a very extensive traveler, it's unusual to come across a hotel that is actually "unique," and great, as is the Lloyd. It offers a wide range of room from 1 to 5 stars, though in fairness, the "1 star" rooms benefit from the upgraded experience of a well run world class hotel, and the 5 star rooms are awesome,...

A perfect hotel, though the cheapest rooms are very little, but comfortable. Sometimes noisy during the nights, as it is everywhere in the city. The beds and bed linen are very good, rooms are clean, the kitchen is not extraordinary..

Team at the Lloyd took my party on at late notice when we were let down on a booking. We were so glad they did. Great staff, fantastic venue and every room we got was fascinatingly well designed. Rooms for all budgets and the service of 5 star. Highly recommended.

The hotel itself is rather near from Amsterdam Centraal, just a few tram stops away, no transfer needed, convenient and strategic location. I chose the hotel because I thought it has a unique vibe and the fact that most rooms are different and specially designed by various Dutch designers. Although, if you are not traveling as a couple it might...

Staying in Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)

Eastern Docklands (Oostelijk Havengebied)
