We spent 4 days in Amsterdam and we were fortunate to book the Owl hotel for our stay there. Very central location, but on a quiet street, within walking distance to museums and parks. Lovely people, helpful and attentive to our needs. Breakfast is not to be missed.

6 blocks from the Museumplein, short walk to shopping street Leidsestraat. Good breakfast. Bath/shower a touch cramped. Lots of hot water. Small room and bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Compared to local hotels good value.

Last May I had the chance to visit Amsterdam again and spend four days there, this time just for pleasure! My first thought was to see if it would be possible at all to shake-off the first impression I had of this beautiful city: that of crowded and noisy places and of pesky bikes!! And the first thing I had... More

A clean little hotel close to the Leidseplein & Vondelpark. Spent 3 nights at the Owl over a weekend and was very satisfied with the hotel. The Owl is very much a budget hotel and is clean, quiet and very close to city centre and buses/ trams. Breakfast was continental but absolutely fine in a nice relaxed atmosphere, I've no... More

Second trip to the Owl, as friends usually stay here, and wanted to be together. Booked the triple room, as 20yo son with us. Plenty of room. Windows open, which is nice, as we like it on the cool side. Location is great. Close to pedestrian shopping zone, museums, canal hop on/off, and canal cruises. Resident cat kept me from... More

Pretty basic but clean. Few amenities but took to the tiny bar after a few local brandies. The principle attraction is the location. A few minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum amongst other attractions. Not much to say about the place really. Somewhere to sleep and have a shower. Boring but convenient.
