“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

My wife and I have just returned from a holiday in Amsterdam staying at the Carlton. The service was second to none and this included all staff from Reception and Bar to the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of food. On arrival our booking was processed quickly and we were upgraded to an Executive Room at no extra charge. If we return to Amsterdam in the future, we will definitely stay here.

The location of the hotel is the main selling point, within walking distance of many of the main sights and lots of bars and resturants close by. If you go expecting 2* accomodation its fine, but the standard of the room we had was nowhere near what you would expect for a 4* hotel.
Also if you pay the local tax in advance make sure you get a reciept, as they would not believe us on checking out we paid this on arrival!

Room was clean enough and bathroom was fine but the decor and quality of furnature was pretty poor, and although we specifically requested a double we still were given 2 singles pushed together with 2 single duvets. The first hotel I have stayed at for a very long time which still had the old fashioned crt style TV!

This hotel is at a walking distance from all the happening places of Amsterdam. The rooms are nice and clean. The serivce staff is great. Good value for your money. The best thing is that you can walk down to all the places you want to be and come back for rest. Great location. Jollly hotel is surrounded by many reputed restaurants and night life locations. Great place to stay.

The NH Carlton is a very convenient base for exploring Amsterdam. It is only one canal down from Dam square and comfortable walking distance from all the main sights of the city. The staff are very friendly and helpful and greeted us cordially when we arrived. The receptionist told us that she had a lovely room for us at the front of the hotel, looking out onto the street. However, she added that the bed was two pushed together rather than the double we had requested. Now the problem with this is that we have found that someone always ends up sleeping on the crack!!! So we asked if she could find us a double. She very obligingly arranged this. The room we got was now on the 7th floor (fast lifts, so fine there) and it looked out onto the back of the hotel. The room was small but perfectly adequate for a weekend break. It also had a small balcony which would have been lovely on a summer day, but rather redundant in February. This balcony could have done with a hosing down as it was a bit mossy from winter, but again probably something for the summer season. The fact that the room was at the rear was actually a good thing as the tram runs directly out-side the front door, so sleep was better at the back. We didn't take breakfast as we considered it somewhat expensive at 15 euro per person, particularly as my husband, who is a coeliac has to bring his own cereals and breads anyway. We found a lovely little cafe nearby which provided what we needed. At check out the desk staff were happy to do airline check in and print off boarding passes.
I would certainly consider staying in this hotel on a return trip to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are much quieter
