Perfect location. Decent breakfast and nice little garden to sit in. The only problem here is the very thin walls. Right now I am listening to the neighbour watch TV and they don't have it turned up loud, its just mounted on a wall that provides no sound barrier. Last night our neighbour came home at 0300 am and we... More

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

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.
