This hotel was the first hotel in the world where all the rooms have different star ratings from 1 to 5. We had a 2 star economy room which was quite a large room with twin beds. It was more than adequate for us as a couple, plenty of drawer and cupboard space for clothes and things. My wife tells...

Stayed during a particularly chilly February week and enjoyed what is an unusual property with an interesting history. My room was spare but perfectly functional with a good view. The design of the building hasn't been whitewashed - it features unusual spaces to spend time in and the location is convenient. Ate in the restaurant twice and had breakfast every...

Its overall ambiance, its restaurant, its very kind and helpful staff, its location (a short walk from tram 10 that takes you to the center of Amsterdam in minutes) make the Lloyd Hotel an excellent place to stay!

Trendy? Not really! Average designed impractical rooms. Design freaks may enjoy their pretty unique rooms. Although not all my colleagues had a different room, most of them varied somewhat in terms of set-up, size or color. What stands out is that most rooms were impractical in one way or another. Some rooms are located in the basement with a huge...

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback. Did you know we are the first 1-to-5 star room in the world? So our 1-star rooms, with a shared bathroom, are more for the budget tourist and for the short stay. The 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-star room have their own bathroom. The more stars a room has, the more spacious it...
