I stayed for 7 nights at the Memphis and the day I arrived they upgraded ( !! ) my single room for a large, beautiful double-room ( 504 ) with a fantastic view over a part of Amsterdam. The room was very clean and they had all the facilities to make your own coffee & tea. The morning breakfast was... More

We are sorry you perceived this as a trick to steal your money. We will try to find a way to better explain this to our guests. As you may have... More

The room was a basic double on the first floor, with good features. the bathroom and toilet rooms were a little run down, but clean and acceptable. The staff were super friendly and let us check...

We normally stay at the Bilderberg Garden hotel but each time we used to walk past the Memphis we thought it looked like a lovely wee place, so booked it for our 4 day trip this year. Checkin was easy and friendly, and we were directed to our room on the 4th... More

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
