TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 3 days ago

we just spend 4 days at the College Hotel in Amsterdam and were shocked by the poor quality of the building. we were not notified at check in that all aircos on the first floor have been broken since June 9th and as per the repair crew wont be fixed for at least another 3 weeks (end July 17) in the middle of the hot summer. No management is present in this education hotel and thus all staff is left on their own. No suitable solution was available and we left in a mess. many small details were broken (we stayed in a junior suite) like light buttons missing, power plugs broken etc. for stays with kids in the summer this hotel is totally unsuitable due to the state of the rooms

Spent one night in the College Hotel as part of a small business conference in May. The hotel is clean and is very smart in all the public areas and is what you would expect from a city hotel. Its In a good location for exploring Amsterdam with tram stops outside etc. The rooms were not ready for the group until quite late, which meant people coming in from flights couldn't check in or freshen up. What also was disappointing was that the rooms were quite stuffy, and the air con didn't work in a number of rooms and some people requested a move but there were no rooms available so they moved to another hotel. The room we had the event in also suffered from the lack of air con. We ate in the hotel and the food was very good. Staff were very helpful All in all, for a premium hotel, I don't expect these sort of issues thence the slightly negative review.

Four of us, two rooms , were welcomed by a delightful receptionist who warmly greeted us & then sorted out our tours, she was wonderful ! BUT that is where it ended ! There is no air conditioning, the rooms were incredibly hot & it was not mentioned. Each room has a portable unit that has a long hose pumping out very hot air through the door but of course you have to leave your day open to use it ! The first night we went to the garden for a drink, there was four staff who all looked at us but no one came over. Eventually we left & went to a lovely pub for a drink for a third of the price. It is a very expensive hotel for one in such disrepair. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone ! This is my first ever negative review !!!

We have stayed here several times, wanted a place with a courtyard to hold our wedding ceremony. This is a teaching hotel so young staff are sometimes a bit inexperienced but very keen to help; however their bosses and supervisors seem to be working in silos and don't know what the other is doing and don't seem to care. Rooms are very comfortable and bathrooms are very nice, good amenity products (soaps and lotions). It looked like the whole first floor of the hotel had air conditioning issues as each room had a portable unit with air blowing out the door...not sure how you would close and lock your door once inside the suite. Several of our wedding guests tried to book our group block of rooms but were told the hotel was sold they booked to stay at another property. Hotel suggested it was my fault because we had blocked rooms for guests but expected me to do all their bookings...obviously they didn't communicate with us. In fact we were passed from person to person who kept changing the goal post; our first person actually quit the hotel midstream. I finally booked rooms online, cheaper price, and had no issues. One guest asked to extend their stay a couple of days long and again were told, no rooms. I looked online and found lots of rooms so simply booked them another reservation. Seriously folks get your act together! Upon our arrival I asked for parking for our car...was told they had no space because there was a big function booked, and it was using all the parking. This was a BS line because we saw no other group except ours for the whole five days. Street parking is usually available but not cheap (36 Euros a day). The setting of this hotel is lovely, the location is great, and the museums and good restaurants nearby. Don't eat at the Italian restaurant here called Ferelli' is awful...(see my review of this separately). We paid an additional 22 Euros each for breakfast...complete waste of money. Would I stay here again, yes but would understand the lowered expectation and how to deal with it. Would I bring a group? No. That said, the young staff are very kind and very willing to try to is their bosses who are getting a fail.

Unfortunately the restaurant has inadequate staff, bad service and food that isn't prepared well. The oysters weren't cleaned proper and served without the needed ingredients. After a disappointing dinner we asked different staff members the check several times. After waiting 25 minutes it finally arrived. After we thought we could pay and leave, we had to wait another 15 minutes for the change. I really like their'e terrace but I suggest to just have drinks. And even then they will disappoint but less than it would having dinner.
