Positive Reviews

Lovely area next to park

The location of Blyss could not be better — you are next to Vondel Park, a short walk to Amsterdam’s main museums, designer shops and delicious restaurants, have easy access to trams for getting to the city centre (or just walk) and are close to the flower market.

Rooms bigger than expected

Given the normally tiny rooms found in Amsterdam hotels, the size of the rooms were a happy surprise for some and the comfy beds were not a bad thing either.

Somewhere central to rest

While some elements of the hotel are not the nicest, it is in a quiet, relaxed part of central Amsterdam and fine if you simply need somewhere to rest your head between days of exploring.

Negative Reviews

Employees not the friendliest

While a few guests had contrary experiences, many people were unhappy with the staff at Blyss, who they found to be unfriendly, unhelpful and not satisfactorily informed to give recommendations.

Room expensive for quality

With several people coming across mice in their rooms, and others water damage and electrical failures, some were very much unhappy at the prices they paid to stay.

Shower issues

There is a chance that you, like others, will experience problems with clogged drains in the small showers, with the end effect of water over the floor.

Renovation rather needed

Guests are of the opinion the very dated decor definitely needs doing up, with things such as peeling wallpaper, mouldy walls and loose wiring catching attention for the wrong reasons.
