Location is great, very easy to come from the Airport with the bus 197 (5 euros ticket), you get of at Leidsplein, the hotel is just behind the Marriot hotel, just walk by the left side (of the Marriot). It is 2 minutes from Leidsplein where you can find restaurants, shops and all the trams for the Dam and central... More

Ok, to make it simple, let us start with the pros. Well, the location is really good, leidseplein, which is basically the center of the main tourist attractions. And that is simply it. Now, with the cons. The rooms are microscopic, literally! The bathroom doesn't have a lock and that too is really small. If we sum it up, there... More

New management, same ol' Owl. Sweet location on quiet street near museums, tasty breakfast served late, lovely garden, excellent multi-lingual staff and clean, cosy rooms. Front desk got me e-tickets for Rijksmuseum to skip line. Thanks Owl!

We stayed here at the end of June and found this to be a good hotel and as we asked for a quiet room were given one overlooking the patio and garden. While not luxurious, this was a well run family hotel within walking distance of good restaurants - ask about the Indonesian restaurant and also the Italian a short... More

Writing this review in the hotel right now actually. Well lets start with the positive: the location is the best. That's it. Okay, now with the negatives: 1) room has certain flaws. The bathroom is really small PLUS the lock doesn't work. So you hold the door all the way in this tiny room. The beds are really uncomfortable. The... More

The features of this hotel are really completely black and white. Let's start with the positive. Location is excellent. A quiet area yet very close to the most famous museums and canal tours and just a 20 minutes stroll to city center. You even have the streets with all the high end brands only 5 minutes away. Perfect actually. The... More

To begin on a positive note, the hotel is in a good location for the main museums and galleries, is of smart external appearance and has reasonable public rooms and pleasant small garden. The breakfast was adequate, but no more. However our bedroom was shabby and the lack of air conditioning on a hot summer's night at the top of... More

I enjoyed my two-night stay at this hotel. Personnel were very friendly and helpful, the location was ideal - on a quiet street, but just a five-minute walk to a tram stop, the Rijksmuseum, or the 197 bus to/from the airport. One can relax on a rear patio; and a fine full breakfast is included in the room price. My... More

My wife and I stayed two nights during a short visit to Amsterdam. The Owl Hotel is a very well family run hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made most welcome. The rooms were spotlessly clean if somewhat basically furnished. We slept well except for one early call when sirens could be heard rushing into our street.... More
