Nice hotel in great location, friendly staff

Posted Sep 11, 2017
We stayed for 2 nights at hotel sander and had a great stay. The staff were extremely helpful and provided us with fresh milk and extra tea bags for our room when we asked for them, as well as giving us information and tips on things to do. The hotel was clean and great for the price. Comfortable bed, good ensuite bathroom.

Amsterdam became warm and the room we stayed in had no air conditioning. They did give us a fan but all it did is blow hot air.

Quiet area close to transit, simple but clean rooms. Breakfast is NOT free unless you book direct through the hotel though.

Never stay here!

Sewage leak from the above room that management was impartial about fixing. Staying in Amsterdam's dirtiest hostel would have been preferable. No refund given, just repeated statements that a plumber was called.

Last minute trip

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Pros: The location was just a short walk to the Trans and the museums. The price was nice for a hotel in the city. The staff were all very nice and helpful
Cons: Having fans in the rooms for those hot nights
Location: Van Gogh, Rijks, Moco and Diamond museums within a short walking distance. Vondelpark is close by too but I didn't make it over there during my trip.
This was a last minute two night trip and this hotel was at a good price and close to the trans and museums. The room was very spacious and clean. We were there during an unusual heat wave with no air conditioning so sleeping with the windows open proved to be noisy with mopeds and voices bouncing off the buildings echoing all night long.

Small nice budget hotel blocks from Museumplein

Very quiet and well-kept hotel. Polite staff. Room is basic but clean and what I asked for. Well-priced as well.

Great location near museums but disappointing room

Posted Jul 21, 2016
Pros: It was brilliantly located for many attractions, e.g. museum district, Vondelpark, Albert Cuyp Market, canal tours etc., and the staff were helpful.
Cons: The basement needs better ventilation to reduce the humidity, the bathroom door needs to close and the saggy/uncomfortable mattresses need replacing.
Location: Excellent, quiet residential location close to the Vondelpark, Concert Hall and Museum District (all within a 10 to 15 minute walk).
When directed to a basement room (apparently all others booked), we were obviously disappointed but disappointment turned to despair when we opened the room door to a musty/mouldy/damp/clammy atmosphere. Needless to say, we spent only a minimal amount of time in the room that boasted a permanently locked window (probably the reason for the mustiness), a bathroom door that wouldn't close (probably swollen in the damp conditions) and a soft, saggy, worn out uncomfortable mattress that wasn't even improved upon our rotating it. Even our belongings stored in the room for the 3 days we stayed smelt stale. The person responsible for awarding the 3 star rating never stayed in the basement! Our encounters with the staff were friendly - they were the best part of the hotel.They were helpful and obliging. Our room and common spaces were as clean as they could have been but with the worn fabric of the hotel, it was never going to look sparkling. We didn't have the time to rent bicycles from the hotel, but they did offer a competitive hire service, making it more convenient option for a day hire than from establishments in the city. Overall, the whole hotel had a tired, old-fashioned feel about it but with some care to detail (and ventilation in the basement), the Sander Hotel could be quite charming. It is certainly in a lovely, safe neighbourhood.
