Hotel V Fizeaustraat, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Hotel V's third Amsterdam hotel is impressive in the style and value it offers at a comparatively low price. In a suburban setting near Amstel station east of the centre, its location won't be for everyone, but it gives a completely different insight into what makes up Amsterdam. Created from a former 1970s office block, its 91 rooms and public areas have a clear design theme echoing that era but firmly set in the present. Its bedrooms are generously proportioned, and the large open plan lounge bar and restaurant areas are inviting and understandably always buzzing. The exemplary dishes in the restaurant are complemented by a well chosen wine list.
Restaurant Merkelbach, serving predominantly Dutch dishes, is nearby - just inside Frankendael Park.
Located in the Amsteldorp district, it's a 30-minute walk to the Skinny Bridge, which takes you to the city centre.
By plane: direct flights from London and Manchester take around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from Schiphol airport and central station. Parking costs €25 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
The hotel suits a wide age range tuned into the latest trends and people who want style, but not a huge price tag attached. The eclectic mix of music in the lounge areas, from soft soul to easy listening and modern African dance music, creates a great ambience.
Service & Facilities
As well as a wide selection of TV channels, there's a good choice of recent movies available to watch too.

The Comfort Rooms were especially impressive as they still managed to be spacious. We loved the contemporary style with a strong 1970s theme.
