We have been to Amsterdam many times but this was the first time we stayed in the Memphis. When we checked in we were given room 413. At best this could have been described as a 2 star room. Not at all worth what we paid. It was very cramped, especially for 2 people and the décor was tired. The... More

The Memphis is a very good hotel in a good location in Amsterdam. Previously others have said that it is not suited for people going to Amsterdam to party and I have agree; however, if you are going to Amsterdam to see the city and get a feel for the culture it is ideal. You need to get a tram... More

This hotel is in a lovely and quiet area of Amsterdam and at the same time easy to access by trams. Within easy reach of the Van Gogh museum, the opera house, the parks, and lovely historical buildings which are the norm in the whole city. It is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The evenings are quiet... More

We stayed in the Memphis for 2 nights. I booked it though the hotels website. The hotel is situated right beside the 16 tram stop so its perfect for getting in and out of the main areas of the city. Found the staff very helpful and pleasant, we were also given complementary drink vouchers on arrival to use at the... More

3 nights here Sunday to Wednesday. We arrived an hour or so before check in but were happy to be told they had a room ready. Room 308 was fine in many respects with wall mounted TV, a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities and air conditioning. However, the strangest arrangement was the toilet. Normally the toilet is all part of the... More

First of all, I want to say that this was our first time in Amsterdam. We loved Amsterdam very much! Our hotel room was very nice and spacious! Although two other business associates we traveled with said their rooms were very tiny compared to ours. Our bed appeared to be 2 twin mattresses pushed together and sleeping in center felt... More

Wish I hadn't read reviews 2 nights before going, I worried about mice for days! But when we got there the neighbourhood and location are fab, the room Was clean and no sign of furry friends! Lovely room and breakfast, slept soundly the 2nd night not worrying and would definitely recommend and come again!

This was our 3rd hotel staff post London & Paris and was of the type of hotel we are accustomed to in Wellington NZ where we stay often. Really helpful & efficient staff, full breakfast, bar & restaurant. Great location right on tram route (regular and great value!) and close to local shops & cafes. AC not the best but... More

The Memphis is a small hotel about 7 or 8 tram stops from Dam square in amsterdam! We were given a room at the back of the hotel on the third floor overlooking private houses/apartments with small garden courtyards! The bed was lovely and comfortable, bathroom had really good power shower! The walls were a little thin, but luckily our... More
