This is a new hotel with a slightly quirky (very personalised) service ethic. Basically they're running it like an exclusive club or private lodge. It can bottle-neck a little if there are several guests requiring attention. At base, it's a great idea. The rooms are well-proportioned (probably the best shower I've ever had in Europe) and really comfortable. The hotel...

Amazing stay! The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It's a 5-10 min walk into "central" Amsterdam, but my traveling partner and I appreciated the location. We still walked home late in the evening with no concern for safety. The rooms were great, quiet and very dark! My traveling partner didn't realize it was well past 10am one morning! Def recommend staying...

Lovely, no beautiful, little hotel. Staff were great and very helpful and chatty and the facilities are first rate with lovely touches. The hotel is largely brand new so hoping they keep right on top of the maintenance. Definitely stay there again next time in Amsterdam.

We loved staying there so much we want to tell you more. Opened at the beginning of 2017 so not yet in the guide books but book well ahead because the secret won’t be kept for long! Located in the peaceful, upmarket Museum neighbourhood next to Vondel Park. There is simply a solid front door, so easily missed. The welcoming...

Just two days before my stay (that I've booked over a month ago), hotel Pillows Anna van den Vondel has cancelled my booking without any explanation. And they did it through Booking.com, without even bothering to contact me in person. I think it says more about their attitude to their clients than anything else, let alone that I had to...

I took my 11 year old son to Amsterdam and we stayed at the all new Pillows Anna van den Vondel. Wow, what a truly nice experience. It felt like entering the house of friends. Wonderfully decorated living room where we enjoyed check in with a free welcoming drink. Breakfast was first class: no buffet but fully served by the...

I was here for a 4 night stay and the place looks wonderful. The price was somewhat on the high side but the hotel does look pristine. Our issues had more to do with the service more than anything else. I think there was a large group being helped during check in the same time we were. However, I've never...

I was very excited to visit this hotel. The location is awesome and after reading all the reviews my expectations somehow high. I got the downstairs room which was small, but comfortable. The bed was super nice and I thought I would get a good rest after a day full of meetings an conferences. Nothing was further from the truth....

I recently spent one evening in the bustling city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I stayed at the Pillows Hotel, a boutique hotel and dining experience in the heart of the risqué city. Immediately, I knew I was going to love my stay as I was met with creatively coordinated green interior colors and designs. It was infectious to my...
