This was my 3rd stay at the Lloyd and this is my second review. I still love it, maybe more than last time. If you don't want to stay in the heart of Amsterdam (dam square) and like to escape from the craziness, this is a perfect location. From centraal station it is 3 stops, 5 minutes and world away...

It should be a business meeting, but the hotel definitely is more of a tourism kind. Poor wi-fi. Internet did not work in the room. Furniture was simple and not suitable if you have to spend time on a desk working in your laptop. Simple meeting room with simple audio visual support.

We got a good deal for an overnight stay at this place. The room, although cheap, did not exude any air of cheapness at all. The staff was very warm and helpful, and overall, it made our stay in Amsterdam very memorable.
