It wasn't our first choice but we couldn't have done better. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh and Stedelijk, even Concertgebouw are just a few minutes walk away. As are two very good restaurants - The Seafood Bar and Blue Pepper (top quality Indonesian cuisine). The hotel is on a quiet street with Vondel Park at the end of it. Liedseplein with its... More

I went to Amsterdam for Innovation, as I was out all night I did not stay at the hotel for very long at all even though I booked a room for three nights. The hotel was nice and simple which was exactly what I had expected for the low price. When I went to leave I was close to missing... More

Very affordable, awesome location near vondelpark, clean rooms, nice and big. Daily maid service and 24hour reception. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The only annoying thing about the hotel is the wifi is slow and cuts in and out. But everything else is great. Would recommend.

I love staying at boutique hotels and The Owl did not disappoint. It was affordable, friendly and its location near the Outer Ring made it easy to get around Amsterdam. The rooms were clean and comfortable, perfect for our one night stay. I did a lot of research before booking, and the staff was very responsive to my questions and... More

This is a small hotel in Amsterdam. The room was clean, the breakfast bar more than adequate, the staff was very nice and helpful with restaurant ideas and ways to save money on tickets to local attractions (we were there to see the tulips at Keukenhoff gardens). I threw my back out halfway through our visit and the staff were... More

This was a small but clean and friendly hotel. Yes, rooms are not the biggest but lots of help from staff with information, extra pillows, tea/coffee whenever we wanted it etc. All the places we wanted to visit close by within walking distance.

Good connection with airport - express bus stop is few minutes from the hotel. Pleasant backyard. [-] room was not spacious. bad soundproof, you can hear how your neighbors open and shut doors. small bathroom. breakfast wasn't varied.... More

Prior to arriving, I had a question and emailed the hotel. The response was quick and informative. I was also given some extra information on the best way to get to their hotel from the airport, and the cost of each method. I thought this was very helpful and was immediately impressed by them. We visited during May half term.... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
