Quiet location on the No 16 tram route into the town centre. Within easy walking distance of Concertgebouw and museums. Super onsite restaurant serving a good but unchanging breakfast with an excellent evening meal. There are many other excellent restaurants close by. Having said that the hotel looks tired and in need of updating. The reception staff are friendly but... More

The hotel is quite decent looking and located conveniently near many bus/tram stops. It's close to Vondel Park. The neighborhood is quiet and free from the touristy hustle-bustle. Most attractions are within 15-20 mins by public transportation. We didn't utilize the breakfast buffet due to the exorbitant cost. When we checked in for the first night, the A/C was set... More

This hotel is a wonderful gem in a quiet area of Amsterdam. Within walking distance are upscale shops, local boutiques and some wonderful restaurants. You are a short tram ride from the city center, but I much prefer the location of this hotel. Very clean and spacious rooms, particularly for Europe. Would definitely return.

Spent three nights here at the end of October. Was recommended by a travel agent who said that because it wasn't in central Amsterdam it would be quiet. It wasn't. It is situated on a busy junction and we were kept awake every morning with the sound of traffic. The hotel is pleasant enough and was clean and the room... More

The hotel is extremely peaceful, decent and a really nice play to stay when in Amsterdam. Also the location is an advantage as it is walking distance away from the Van Ghough Museum. Also the locality in which the hotel is located is safe and quiet. Hotel staff - very helpful, chirpy and presentable. room - i was really surprised... More

Like the title says, a decent enough place, but nothing special to write about. From the airport, you can take the bus to museumplein and walk back for around 15 mins to reach the hotel. The museum square is very much within walking distance and can take the tram to every other place from there. Staff were helpful enough in... More

This hotel is really Average. Nothing bad and nothing really good to say about the hotel. It is something about these 4 stars hotels in Amsterdam. They are hotels that once were 5 stars and then different owners and interest kind of tear down the beauty they once had. They somehow remind me of elderly people that are tired of... More

Had a 3 night break in our travels here and really wish I hadn't bothered. There was a real strange smell around the whole hotel (and no not the standard Amsterdam smell this is a non smoking hotel.) the smell was even worse in the rooms. Very old style rooms empty bar fridge and large amounts of mould in the... More

We ended up booking this hotel last minute because our original hotel was so diabolical we couldn't sleep there. The Memphis has a business feel about it however this suited us as we had a young son and did not want to be kept up by stag/hen parties! We booked 2 hours before our arrival and there was a cot...

Memphis Amsterdam looked pretty solid online, and received good reviews. Note that while I write this review, I wish there was a 3.5 rating (in between Average and Very Good). However, the location is Average. The Service, Cleanliness, and Rooms are Average. We stayed in a quaint room facing the street side, but wished there was air conditioning. The best... More
