    great location on a side street near voldenpark. that's why it is quiet. but pretty far from central station. there is a tram stop nearby the hotel. number 1 gets you to center in 10 minutes! also the hotel has got a lot of books, summer terrace, big living room, where we dance together when all of guests were already sleep)

    you need to warm your room up before sleep there by turning on the radiator. but it's ok! everything was just fine.

    It was a nice district of Amsterdam, close to the centre, but clean and calm at the same time.

    Our room was located just in front of the garden of the hotel, therefore all the convertations and voices were literally in the room.. And the room itself was like a basement.. Staff was really deficient. We were ill- informed in so many situations.

    Superb

    The room was named "nature" and it was pretty good! The bed was very comfortable and the sight from the window great! As far as our experience is concerned everything was very nice, so I doubtless suggest this hotel to everyone.

    Very good

    The staff is very friendly, polite and helpful. There is a charming bar in the hotel and a lovely garden inside. The locations is good, close to the city center by tram or by foot (5 min). Good internet signal in the rooms and lift.

    The breakfast was expensive and there wasn't hairdryer in the room (but one could borrow form the front desk).

    The hotel was excellent and staff were really good and courteous. We had a great time and the room was just very good and relaxing. I would highly recommend to other travelers to stay at Sandton Hotel de Filosoof.

    Good

    The staff were very helpful, and the hotel had some nice character.

    The hotel was too far away for our short stay as we had to get a taxi back each night due to trams not running late. The rooms looked fairly old, and were not great considering the price we paid. No hairdryer either.

    Our suite was just across the road from the hotel, we were not expecting such a lovely room. we had a wonderful stay and would definitely would stay again. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and accomodating.

    No fridge in our suite/room which was a shame as it would have been nice to keep our wine and champagne chilled instead of having to go across the road to chill it, then back again to collect it.

    Good

    It is idosyncratic, with "a certain charm". The reception staff was helpful.

    1. I was disappointed to be placed across the street in Room 132. 2. Access to Room 132 was awkward and difficult for both me and my wife; we are 77-80 years old. The old doors are extremely stiff and hard to push open, the situation being made more difficult when one is manipulating heavy suitcases. 3. If you are interested in accommodating older people like us, you could consider installing a sturdy railing leading down to the breakfast area.

    The surrounding area

    The manager, she was very unfriendly, and also punished us for checking out the room two hours later (10 Euro), but not the money was the problem but the way she talked to us. Also the lady working in the breakfast was very angry and make a lot of noise, and the cruisone were not fresh at all

    Very good

    The room 116 was very wide with its own kitchen, bedroom and living room. On the other hand the hotel located just next to the tram stop so transportation was very quick and easy.

    except the main building there are no elevators and the stairs are a bit painful for the first day and the last day of the trip while carrying luggage in and out.

    Fabulous

    Friendly, curteous, helpfull staff. Nice quiet residential neighbourhood just outside main tourist areas. Easy to get to from Central station (about 10 mins by no 5 tram which run runs past end of street) Good sized double room. Clean, tidy and all in good order, though decor may be getting a bit tired. Breakfast a bit pricey but plenty of it.

    No tea/coffee making facilities in room. Internet wireless reception can very variable depending on which part of the hotel you are in.

    The name was the only nice thing about the hotel. A gimmick is no substitute for quality: I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Our room (number 2) in the basement was dark, damp and not very clean. When we came back to the hotel after dinner, there were no towels in our room and staff had to get some from a vacant room. Maybe other rooms were better, but a hotel is as good as its worst room.

    Superb

    The staff were friendly and the beds are comfortable.Their is plenty of hot water.

    The hotel describes the room as cosy I would say tiny.The prices in my opinion are exessive as too, are the bar prices.The hotel is also a bit tired and could do with a makeover

    Reception, rooms, noise, cost. THE HOTEL CHARGED ME THE FULL STAY IN ADVANCE ALTHOUGH MY RESERVATION CLEARLY STATED IT WAS ONLY A GUARANTEE. THEN, THEY PUT ME IN A ROOM IN ANOTHER BUILDING, NOT MENTIONED IN THE HOTEL DESCRIPTION AND FAR FROM ME AS NICE AS THE ROOMS IN THE MAIN BUILDING.

    Very good

    Great value for the price. Rooms were small, but very quiet and comfortable. Staff were helpful, friendly.

    The hotel is in a residential area and the main shops and cafes are about several blocks away. No free breakfast, no free coffee or tea. They charged 15 Euros for breakfast, so I never bought it. I was charged 2.50 Euros for a cup of tea.
