Excellent location. Quirky rooms.
Excellent location. Quiet quirky rooms.
Hotel is in a great location on a pretty street beside Vondelpark. It's a ten minute walk to the museum area. Room was quiet, clean and a bit quirky! We were in an annex accross the street from the main hotel. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel but dining area looked nice.

Decoration, location, character
I really like the idea behind de Filosoof, it does stand out among all generic hotel chains. The rooms are individually designed. I stayed in the Wittgenstein room which sports besides his tractatus, a wonderful garden. The room was a bit run down though which made me wish for a refurbishment. The Wifi was too weak to reach the room, but worked fine in the corridor. Small details fixed, this would be my first choice in Amsterdam. On a quiet street, just by the fantastic Vondelpark.

Perfect Choice for Solo Travelers or Couples
Location, Staff, Personality
Considering the low quality of other budget-ish hotels in Amsterdam, Sandton Hotel de Filosoof provides an excellent value due to their ideal location on Vondelpark; clean, secure rooms, each uniquely decorated in the spirit of a different philosopher; a friendly, professional staff; and nice amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi. I stayed in a single room, which was small but cozy, with a nice writing desk and lounge chair positioned in front of windows overlooking a pretty garden; good-sized bathroom too. I'll be returning here next time I'm in the 'Dam.

Friendly Staff and great location
Friendly Staff (did their utmost best to accomodate us with room choice), so close to city centre, and next to Vondel park!
As said, the staff did everything to accommodate us with regard to a good room for me and my son. The hotel is close to a tram line and you are in the city centre in 5 minutes.
Its next to the Vondel Park which is great for outdoor activities. The area is very lovely, Oud West has all the old quaint buildings and is very charming.
Downside, not very clean, and super small bathroom!

1. nice and helpful staff; 2. quite environment 3. fast access to public transportation (tram) 4. the Chinese Restaurant opposite the hotel, Fan's Kitchen, food is nice, staff are friendly\
I was sick and was hospitalized during my stay in Amsterdam, the hotel staff is very helpful and friendly, she printed out the hospital's address and called a taxi to send me to the hospital immediately. When she knew I had to extend my stay in the hotel due to my sickness, she told me I can stay as long as I need on the day I checked out without extra charge. I was really touched by her kindness and consideration.

Fine hotel with friendly service
Good location close to center of Amsterdam, friendly helpful staff, large bathroom with bath tub
We had three mights at Hotel de Filosoof. A nice spacious room, good bed, clean room and bathroom, no noise from other rooms, good well equipped breakfast buffet in a bright room.
We could walk to the center of Amsterdam or take the tram, whichever we preferred. The Neighborhood is quite and you fell quite safe and well walking the streets at night.
We one night found a Thai restaurant quite close by and had a fine tasty and cheap meal there.
A hotel to be recommended.
