Great location hotel, 3 minutes walk from the famous "I'm Amsterdam signage". Hotel not too big and not noisy at all. Simple room, not too big, but very clean and warm. Friendly staff, I definitely would recommend this hotel

We stayed at this hotel February 2012 and had an amazing front room which was large with separate bathroom and provided a good base for exploring Amsterdam, however we booked the following year and the room we were given was tiny with a sink in the room and a tiny shower enclosure, and on our first night there even though...

Stayed in this hotel in June for our family vacation. Had 2 rooms - 1 double for us and 1 quad (2 twin beds and a bunk bed) for the 4 kids (teens). Great location - easy to get to from the airport (by bus) which saved us money, close to Leidseplein with LOTS of restaurants. This worked out well... More

Great little hotel in a very nice location close to the center. Clean, comfortable and very much value for money. The staff was very helpful and kind. Also, the breakfast was very nice. No complaints from me.

I am a regular visitor to the Owl and I am pleased that the same excellent standard of service is provided by the new owners who took over earlier this year. The hotel is situated in a relatively quiet street but only a short walk from the busy Leidseplein area where you will find many bars and restaurants and the... More

The Owl Hotel has a great location; a quiet street in the museum district and next to city center. Also, reasonably priced for the location. The rooms are nothing fancy but are up to date. Staff was friendly and helpful; made a great recommendation for dinner.

Easy to get to (5 euros for bus 197 to Leidsplein) great location for walking to the major tourist attractions. And now... Extremely small rooms for the hotel rates charged (and they charged my card immediately which was not supposed to happen!!!) and there is a an additional surtax which made this rate extremely high for the quality of the...

As evey year for many years we come to this small (34 small rooms) central hotel. This year the Owl changed owners....the only difference we notice were the new electronic keys and a slightly better breakfast assortment. Rest unchanged....Rooms are very small but clean. Crazy to have bath tubs in such small bathrooms, they should only have showers.They say price... More

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
