For our first trip to Amsterdam, the Owl Hotel was the perfect place to stay. The rooms are charming, clean, and comfortable. The garden behind the hotel is beautiful, and the perfect place to sit with a drink or a cup of coffee. The staff members are welcoming and helpful. The location is within walking distance of museums, restaurants, and... More

I chose this hotel because it is very close to the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum, just a few minutes walk away. I was also pleased to find The Hard Rock Cafe and many good restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is just around a corner from a main road, I felt safe,... More

I have been staying at this hotel since 1982 and I have just returned from what is at least my 7th stay at this hotel. It is simple and basic but I love it because it is small and personal and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I also like the location which is within easy reach of all... More

Not much had changed after 7 years, the staff was still as friendly and helpful as before, room old but clean, bathroom shower leaked and flooded the floor...however everything charming. Location is the big plus point, being able to walk to Leidseplein, as well as the newly opened Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. The breakfast buffet was adequate, tasty and... More

Amsterdam is an incredibly overpriced city. And accommodations are often comparatively tattered and worn. That is just the fact. I say this because the rates at the Owl are not bad relatively speaking. The neighborhood is great, and yes, in a really nice section of town. The street you are on is cosy and quiet, and extremely well situated to... More

We traveled with our 15 and 13 year old and had a fabulous time! The owners are so friendly and helpful, and were very accommodating to us! The stairway is steep and spiral, but adds to the charm! The breakfast was pleasant, and we thoroughly enjoyed cocktails on the patio! The location was perfect for our family...convenient for walking the... More

The Owl has a very friendly staff and is situated in a beautiful part of Amsterdam - a short walk from the best museums and park. Unfortunately, the rooms were not thrilling, though clean and fairly quiet. The breakfast was disappointing and not worthwhile - most of the food came from a can or a box, coffee from a machine...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel a few days ago and it was possibly the most overpriced hotel we have ever stayed at. The rooms were very old and the carpets were stained. The bed appeared to have been cleaned poorly because it had other people's hair on the sheets. We the customer service of the front desk... More

The service here was excellent but sadly the hotel was poor value for money. The walls were paper thin which meant when the Aussies in the neighbouring room got their 6am phone call from the family back home we got to here every word... 2 days in a row. They then stayed in bed chatting post call to 8am which... More

This was our first time at the Owl Hotel, and we highly recommend it! FIrst, location. It was easy to take the bus (4 euros per person in May 2013) from Schipol Airport to Leidseplein, a bustling square that is a mere five minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel is located near Museumplein, where you will find the... More
