I stayed for 4 nights at the Manor hotel. While the decoration is a bit on the funky side; hallways with red wallpaper and red carpets, some questionable art in the rooms, the rooms are actually clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was modern and clean.
Room very comfortable. Mirror in the bathroom too high to see in. I would be nice to have tea/coffee in room but they have tea stations on every other floor. Didn't have breakfast but it looked really good when I walked by
Booked as part of a deal, really was not expecting a lot from the hotel as was very last minute. There is only one tram in and out of the centre to the hotel so its easy not to get lost, as an added bonus this stops directly opposite the hotel, there are also taxis around the street out front (and a public urinal much to my partners dismay, after seeing how much use they get instead of in the park directly next to it, she changed her mind!).
When entering the grounds it is surrounded by a courtyard, this completely blocks the noise of any traffic and provides a relaxing space with ample seating, lighting and a lovely tree. Upon arrival we were greeted promptly by staff who were very friendly. After paying the standard city tax we went up to our room on the first floor via elevators (I never saw stairs the entire visit however I believe this may be because of a conference centre, sandwiched above the lobby and the first which may have been accessible by stairs??) The room was generously sized and we were extremely fortunate to have a view over Oost park (the other three sides have views over the park to the back, the Tropic institute the the side and the main road/courtyard to the front). The room has the standard tea/coffee facilities a strong & hot shower and a television, there was also the added bonus of a safe. The bed was a double and it was an ok size and comfortable.
The hotel is a 20-25 min taxi ride from the airport and a 10 min tram ride to Dam square (add 5-7min for central station. The tram stop is 100m from the hotel so all very convenient. Many cafes near the hotel to have a meal and hotel is location in a quiet and leafy area (think Holland Park if you live in London).
Staff very helpful and allowed early check-in. Rooms are a tad tired but no major complaints really..
Me and my partner came over to celebrate our anniversary together and the hotel met all of our needs and more. It was spacious, clean, fresh and had everything needed within. tram takes max 10 mins to get to the centre which I thought was perfect, away from the noise yet still highly accessible!! :))
These Apartments are of a very high quality and would recommend to anyone looking at them. I went for the room with the maisonette and was pleasantly suprised. The only glaring fault I found with the room was I could not tree the TV from the bed.
The first night me and my girlfriend fell asleep with the TV on and randomly during the night a man walked in the room, woke us up and told us to turn the TV off. Neither of us were impressed to say the least and this is the only reason they did not get 5 starts for customer service. Other than that the customer service was faultless. The first day the drain in the shower was slightly blocked. We told reception, went shop and within 15 minutes it was fixed. The staff all were very good with directions, and good advice on things to do in the day.
The location was great in certain respects but poor from others. It isn't central so you don't get the noise which is always good but means you will need to get transport to central. Your choices are to walk (25 minutes) to just reach central then walk when you are there. Bike which I didn't do as whether wasn't amazing. Or Bus which is about 7 minutes. After walking to the hotel once we chose to catch the bus every other time. 1 hour pass was 2.90 they do a 24 HR pass 48 and 72 which can be used on bus and trams we got a 48hr for 12 euros. The 22 bus stopped practically outside the hotel at the oostenburgergracht stop. You can also catch the tram(10) which takes you to the Van Gough museum
We stayed as a couple for two nights here and really loved it. The room was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly.
The hotel is quite small but the room sizes are adequate. It was fitted with an electronic safe, TV, amazing shower and very central surrounding.
The building neighbors the Auschwitz Memorial Gardens on the East of the center of Amsterdam. We were able to walk to the Anne Frank House in 30mins after a few stops on the way. Everything is in reach here and there is a tram stop at the end of the street (2min walk)

The Hotel Parklane is located in a residence along the Plantage Parklaan, on a green and quiet spot in the centre of …More
This area is known as Plantage (Plantation) and while its lush parkland has mostly gone, botanical gardens and the small Artis Zoo provide refuge from the hustle of the city. To the north, the excellent maritime Nederlands Scheepvaartmuseum is a reminder of Dutch naval power; to the south the ethnographical Tropenmuseum holds exotic treasures from the Dutch East Indies.
