The 40-room Hotel Blyss is a decent value pick in residential Vondelpark. The lobby is trendy, featuring a gas fireplace, a bar, damask-style wallpaper, rustic wood floors, and modern furniture, but it sets an expectation for the hotel that the rooms don't live up to. The rooms are quite basic (their only real design element being an accent wallpaper wall), with double beds made up of two single beds pushed together, and small (in some rooms, tiny) flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms appear reasonably cute and modern, but some can have issues, such as shower water flowing across the entire floor, or signs of muck and mold. A nicer part of the hotel is the study area, which features an Apple iMac and sleek black seating. The breakfast room has a retro vibe with a black-and-white checkered floor and red vinyl seating. When the price is right, it's a fine choice for guests who don't mind sacrificing a few frills.
