Lovely stay!

Welcoming staff, easy check in (3pm), luggage storage, clean room/bathroom and a comfy bed. We stayed in a small double room which is perfect if you don't plan on spending much time in the room. If you prefer a little more space I would recommend paying the extra for the next size up but we felt it was perfectly sound for us. There is also a hotel number for Whatsapp that can be used to contact staff about any queries which was very helpful! The Lancaster is not far from the centre at all. Transport links are practically on the door step, only a stones throw away (Tram 14 to Centraal Station for all the stops you'll need!) We arrived a few hours before check in so we stored our luggage and spent a few hours at Artis Zoo which was lovely. The hotel is situated in the Jewish Quarter so nearby there is a number of museums and a synagogue you can visit. There is a variety of nice cafes and small restaurants around too which are slightly cheaper than those in the centre. We enjoyed our stay at the Lancaster Hotel and will definitely consider staying here again in future. If you're looking for somewhere away from the noise of the centre but is still extremely close, I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

I don't know where to start but - wow! This hotel was phenomenal. The setting in the hotel is so stylish, luxury & comfortable. With just a 15/20 minutie walk from the red light district/central station. We arrived about 10:30 am when check is usually 3 pm but Mohammed was such a friendly face that pulled out all the stops to get us into our room within half an hour, not only this but we were celebrating our anniversary and luckily (due to there being space) he upgraded us as a anniversary treat - thank you so much again Mohammed! We stayed in a Superior room that is on the new wing that are freshly renovated, the room was a great size with the ceiling being so high giving you the illusion of much more room, it was also impeccably clean. The bathroom was modern, minimal & very very clean with complimentary toiletries of all sorts.There was tea & Nespresso coffee facilities that are replenished daily & i love that this hotel also has slippers - my favourite part of a hotel stay! When we checked out we were greeted by female member of staff that was also so lovely and sent us home with a packet of local Dutch flower seeds to remember the hotel & trip by - i thought this was a great touch! Overall if I simply had to pick something out that could have made this only slightly better its only that i would have loved a dressing gown to go with the slippers in the room - other than that absolutely everything was above and beyond expectations and I can't wait to come back :) Thank you everyone at The Lancaster!
