Bottom Line

The budget 42-room Hotel Central Park is slightly outside the city center, located in a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood around the corner from the lovely Vondelpark. Rooms are small and simple, though clean, pleasant, and filled with natural light, with flat-screen TVs and tea and coffee-making facilities. Sparse amenities include a small and basic breakfast room where free tea and coffee are available throughout the day (though breakfast comes with an additional fee), as well as bike rentals and a computer available for use in the lobby. Though not within walking distance of the main tourist sights, the hotel is a few blocks away from supermarkets, restaurants, and a bus line that leads directly downtown.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Central Park


Simple budget hotel housed in a four-story brick building near the Vondelpark

Housed in a four-story building that sits on a quiet, brick-and-moss lined street populated by similarly styled structures, the budget Hotel Central Park offers basic amenities and clean and simple rooms in a tranquil location that's a bit removed from the city center. Interiors are modest and functional with not much in terms of decor; guests are greeted in a small lobby that consists mainly of a large wooden front desk. The breakfast room is similarly spare, but free coffee and tea throughout the day are a nice and welcoming touch. The property attracts tourists on a budget that don't mind a short commute into the center.

Located in a quiet, residential area around the corner from Vondelpark, southwest of the city center

The hotel is situated in a quiet, residential area around the corner from the Vondelpark. There are bus and tram stops a five-minute walk from the property that lead directly downtown in about 25 minutes. A supermarket and some restaurants and cafes are all within a few blocks and there's also a bike rental shop around the corner. The airport can be accessed by public transport via a single bus line that stops a 10-minute walk away from the hotel (35 minute total travel time).
