Reviews for The College Hotel
The location is very good if you use the tram or bus, just a few metres away and you can travel in three directions. The room was fine, but not luxury perhaps a little tired, the very large window blind was broken so we propped it open with a bottle of water to let the day light in. Bathroom was showing its age wall paper above the toilet dirty and pealing away, the shower controls a little dangerous trying to turn off the water was hit and miss, last complaint was the bed softer than I would like. Didn't try the breakfast after reading previous reviews and the inflated price. Lovely building, very fetching reception and ground floor area, pleasant and what seems safe and quite part of the city, probably would stay again.

We rang ahead to this hotel when we saw the reviews coming in. We were assured that the issues were addressed. It sure looks like the General Manager has taken this place by the scruff of the neck and given it a good shake. It is working like a well oiled machine now. This historic building has been styled into a wonderful chic hotel with a restrained palette. It exudes restrained good taste, very Dutch in that regard. Staff efficient and friendly. Service very good. Lovely dinner of high end Italian in Ferrilli's restaurant. We were Looked after very well by Giovanni and his staff. We had a Junior Suite which is not big but it is Amsterdam. However, the two of us were able to navigate with relative ease. The ceiling height must be twice normal which gave added effect to the colour scheme - straight out of Kelly Hoppen. Light flooded in through tall windows. From the bed we looked through into the small lounge room and we realised this is like a scene from those Dutch Masters like Vermeer capturing this effect of light coming in through a tall window from the left. See the pic. Great location, Widlshut next door and trams convenient to everywhere including 197 Express bus to Schiphol. Stay here. You deserve it especially on a sunny afternoon on the terrace.

We loved our stay at The College Hotel, the location is great, service first class and the terrace is a perfect spot for a coffee (beer). There have been negative comments about the service, we found all staff members to be polite, accommodating and keen to offer a great level of service. We received an upgrade to a suite which may have been linked to us mentioning it was our ten year anniversary when we dropped our bags off prior to check in. It was a nice touch, the room was large with a separate seating area and good sized bathroom.

I have stayed at this hotel more than 10 times over the years. I keep going back because I love the location to airport and the rooms. It's chic design and warm furnishings make for a very comfortable stay. Well appointed although could now do with a bit of updating on the tech front. I always stay in Room 101 it has huge windows and is great size, the bed is really comfotable. Now, you have to understand this is a training hotel (hence the name) and you will have to allow for some rough edges on the service front although I do not feel the price reflects this. I am all for it's concept but if you are letting loose training staff in a hotel of this quality you must be having more experienced trained eyes on them at all times to ensure the paying guest still has a good experience. This is not the case at the College. I have sent my order back on numerous occasions and been left waiting longer than should be expected to be served. This is the reason I can not give 5 stars. So in short I love the feel of this place but my patience has wained with the service so will be looking elsewhere next time.

Stayed for 4 nights in July. The welcome was nice, and when our room was ready, the receptionist carried our bags and showed us the room. Small, and very dark, due to only a skylight and no windows, even if the reservation confirmation promised 'city view' We tried the breakfast the first morning. The breakfast consist of a rather oppe selection of cold cuts, cereal and sweet pastries. Only white bread available. You are supposed to order eggs and coffee from servers. My friend came first, and ordered coffee. When I arrived 15 minutes later, she was still waiting for a coffee. I had to ask for seevice, and ordered coffee and an omelett. My friend finally got to order scrambled eggs. Still no coffee for her, and we had to wait appr. 30 minutes for her coffee to be served, and then we had to correct it two times. My omelett was so over-cooked that it resembled a rubber ball. There were at least four servers and appr 6 guests in the restaurant when we had our breakfast at 09, but still I had to ask them to refill the orange juice pitcher at the buffet. For 22â‚¬ pp, this is robbery and a very bad deal. Did have a coffee in the breakfast restaurant another morning, and was served by a very rude woman. Had to wait ten minutes (in a quiet restaurant) for a coffee, before she showed up and asked if I wanted two coffees. I told her I only had ordered one, but she kept asking if I wanted to wait for my friend. I then specifically said I wanted one cup of coffee, for med, right away, and when she replied it would take five minutes (after already waiting ten), I was very surprised. Well, my 4,5 â‚¬ small cappuccino arrived at last. As for the rest of out stay, it was overshadowed by the housekeeper/cleaner managing to throw away my Calvin Klein t-shirt. It was hanging on a peg in the bathroom, with my towel. As instructed, I had not left my towels on the floor, as I was planning to use them again (you know, to save the environment). Even so, the housekeeping had changed them, including my t-shirt. They managed to find and returned it after 2 days. The hotel has a lot of apprentices and hotel students, and it is a very nice concept to do a training hotel. Sadly, it is not possible to know if you are serviced by an employee or apprentice, and most of the staff is not very helpful when you have a complaint. And as it is not how the service is when everything runs smoothly, but rather the ability to correct faults that decide your proffesionality, the score for The College Hotel is very low. The location is very good, and both exterior and interior are furnished very elegantly.
