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

I took the very last room in the hotel so beggars etc. it was small and compact with a wee bathroom, not enough space for me and the cat! Anyhow, the room was fine, clean and tidy if a little dated but in a nice building overall. I would ask you to avoid having a room on the main highway,... More

Our second visit to the Memphis Hotel obviously shows that we were happy with our first visit, 9 years before! When we booked we were anxious to know whether the standard of this hotel was still the same and that's what we found during our stay there. Though a good walk away from the busy centre of Amsterdam, the hotel... More

A very friendly hotel that I booked because it was one of few that included bed and breakfast (the breakfast by the way is very good) and close - ish to the centre of Amsterdam / museum land. If you don't like walking maybe a more central hotel is better for you. We love to walk and soak in the... More

Within easy reach of the centre by tram, bus, car or bike (we took bikes), and with some good retaurants and cafes nearby, this is a great localtion to explore Amsterdam. Parking is on-road nearby, but didnt seem hard to find. We booked indirectly and the prices were very reasonable and the hotel is clean, modern and comfortable. The rooms... More

I stayed in this hotel last week and can only say that i was very pleased with every aspect of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was particularly useful that we were able to buy tram tickets at the desk. Reception staff were able to advise me on what ticket to buy etc. Rooms were clean and... More

We were in Amsterdam for the World Rowing Championships and were very pleased to have found this great hotel which really enhanced our stay there. The rooms werent partiularly big but were nicely decorated. Bit disappointed they only provided 2 tea bags and no coffee or milk in the rooms for 2 guests staying. The area around the hotel is...

As the picture shows, the hotel is quite lovely on the outside. My fiance and I stayed on the 5th floor and the room was cozy and comfortable. I loved the bathtub, nice and deep to soak in. What really made this hotel stand out was the amazing staff. They had recommendations on where to eat in the area and... More
