Positive Reviews

Excellent position in the heart of Amsterdam

Based on overall sentiment, the location of the Hotel des Arts was seen as its best feature. Many of the biggest attractions in the capital, such as the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum and Herengracht, are within 15 minutes away on foot from the hotel.

Staff accommodating and friendly

The hotel provides an admirable level of service according to most former guests. Along with a pleasant and welcoming attitude, the staff members were said to be accommodating in answering all questions and requests.

Large and clean rooms

Recent visitors to the Hotel des Arts were typically appreciative of the rooms provided. As well as being spacious and containing comfy beds, the rooms were described as clean for the most part. Furthermore, the rooms that featured canal views were seen as well worth paying extra for.

Negative Reviews

Accommodation lacks a lift

One of the most common negatives attributed to the Hotel des Arts relates to the lack of a lift within the building. With that in mind, previous visitors have also noted that it can be a struggle to carry luggage up the hotel's narrow, winding staircases.

Breakfast a basic affair

If breakfast is an important aspect of your hotel experience, the Hotel des Arts is perhaps best avoided - according to the overall feedback of past guests. Both the quality and, in particular, variety of the hotel's breakfast were criticised at times.

Rooms missing tea/coffee facilities

Although a minor point overall, the omission of tea and coffee facilities was disappointing for various former guests of the hotel. This negative was seen as all the more perplexing due to the rooms containing a kettle.
