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

Stayed here for three nights while visiting Amsterdam. The staff is wonderful; the hotel is clean and very comfortable. There is a small elevator and a lovely lounge area. The rooms aren't overly large but are comfortable. Very convenient location.

A small, family-run hotel just a ten minute walk from the Rijksmuseum and van Gough Museum, very convenient for canal boat, tram and bus travel, and a 50 euro taxi ride from Schipholl airport. Stairs are very steep, as in most old Amsterdam houses, but there is an efficient lift. No evening meals served, but many restaurant within easy walking... More

Stayed here for four nights as a group visiting Amsterdam. Michelle and her husband Gui who run the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and comfortable and quiet. There is a pleasant bar/ lounge area where our group was able to gather at the end of the day. The breakfast is a typical Dutch continental breakfast... More

We booked the hotel, because we wanted to stay in a more traditional hotel. We stayed in the family room. The staff were friendly. The location was brilliant. Breakfast ok. The last night of our stay we had rats in the room, which was really disgusting. Will go back there for price and location and pray the rats have relocated.

Small hotel with a very convenient location. It is 5 minutes walk from Leidseplein where a vast number of trams and buses stop. The later allows for easy access to almost every part of the city, from the airport to the historical center and the suburbs. The hotel is located in a very quite neighborhood, very clean and with a... More

Great location, great price. Good breakfast and very helpful staff. My wife and would definetly go back. Near museums, a great and beautiful park, but also far enough of all the fuzz of the great Amsterdam night life.

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.
