The hotel was perfectly situated for the museums and the Concertgebouw - all within easy walking distance. A short walk to tram stops for all other attractions. Room was comfortable though soundproofing between the rooms would help. Excellent breakfast. Staff could not have been more helpful. Glad we chose to stay at the Owl.

Just back from a lovely long weekend in Amsterdam for my husband's 65th birthday. This was our second stay at Owl Hotel. The location is perfect and the new owners are just lovely. We were pleased to have the chance to speak to Pieter who has recently retired from the hotel. Let's hope he has a lovely long and happy... More

Spent 4 nights here. Good value for money. The hotel is in a very nice area and close to the centre of the city with easy access to transport, restaurants and places of interest. The hotel was clean, the continental breakfast more than adequate and the staff exceptional. Michelle deserves a special mention as she went out of her way... More

My grandmother lost a personal belonging (with her name and number on) at the railway station in Switzerland and a couple on their way to Amsterdam found it. The couple stayed at the Owl Hotel in Amsterdam and called my grandmother from there. The Owl Hotel was so kind and sent it back from Netherlands to Switzerland. My grandmother got... More

We stayed in Owl Hotel for 3 nights in December 2013. Good choice for budget accommodation. Very neat hotel, continental breakfast included in rate. Free WIFI. Comfortable beds. Conveniently near bus stop - we took bus 197 from and to the airport at only E4 per single ticket. Near Leidseplein with lots of restaurants to choose from. Can recommend Ranchas... More

The Owl Hotel is tucked away on a quiet street in Amsterdam. It is walking distance to the museums, the shopping district and the canals. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, with comfortable beds and a medium-sized bathroom. Everything worked, and the water was hot. The breakfast (included) was much more than the usual "Continental... More

The Owl is a decent little hotel tucked back on a quiet street. The staff was extremely friendly and overall, the place was clean and well maintained. The rooms are a little dated but nothing that would prevent me from recommending it. The breakfast was good. Better than what is found in most US hotels as a "free" breakfast. The... More

My adult son and I spent ten days at the Owl Hotel in November. I found the hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms clean, comfortable, and quiet. The location is almost perfect for those who wish to visit the major museums in Amsterdam.

Hotel is old but in great shape and well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just enough to start the day. We enjoyed the comfortable lounge area just off the bar. The courtyard looked very nice but to cold to enjoy in in October. Our room was adaquite, not the Ritz. Well worth the price.
