The Owl is a decent little hotel tucked back on a quiet street. The staff was extremely friendly and overall, the place was clean and well maintained. The rooms are a little dated but nothing that would prevent me from recommending it. The breakfast was good. Better than what is found in most US hotels as a "free" breakfast. The... More

The Breakfast is poor, the Rooms are old, the bed is clean but carpet, curtains are old but the price is cheap and the location is excellent. Especially it will... More

My adult son and I spent ten days at the Owl Hotel in November. I found the hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms clean, comfortable, and quiet. The location is almost perfect for those who wish to visit the major museums in Amsterdam.

Hotel is old but in great shape and well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just enough to start the day. We enjoyed the comfortable lounge area just off the bar. The courtyard looked very nice but to cold to enjoy in in October. Our room was adaquite, not the Ritz. Well worth the price.

It was a great hotel in a good location right beside Vondel park. Staff was always very friendly and helpful. The room was a decent size with comfortable beds, although two singles pushed together would stay together better with a double sheet or something. But overall very nice rooms. The breakfast was perfect with fruit, toast, meats and cheeses. The... More

We chose The Owl Hotel because of good reviews and decent price and it more than met our expectations. It's located about two blocks from the stop for the 197 bus from the airport (4 euros per person, a bargain) and most the the major sites we wanted to see were withing walking distance. The staff is very helpful, recommending... More

Clean, friendly, quiet and very well located, however the decor and the breakfast were unimaginative although adequate. Worth the trade off if one is looking for a budget option. Very close to museums, canal cruise, restaurants and shops.

Cozy and clean with an excellent location and one of the friendliest staffs I've run across in my travels! I agree that the hotel does need some freshening up but this could be said about many other moderately priced hotels in Amsterdam. (My wife and I have been to Amsterdam some twenty times).The breakfast was typically Dutch with a good... More

We spent a wonderful week cruising the Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam with Viking cruises and decided to tack on a couple of days in Amsterdam to finish off. There was a large conference in the city the days we wanted to stay and so there wasn't a lot of choice of hotels and, though the Owl is one of... More

I was booked into this hotel as part of a business visit. The location can't be faulted and the staff are very pleasant. For the price it's good value for money although the decor is somewhat tired and although WiFi was available it was very slow and kept losing its connection.
