I had travelled with 2 friends to Amsterdam for the first time in the year of 2013. We stayed at Hotel Hestia and loved it! I personally loved going down in the mornings for the breakfast just to see their little, beautifully quaint garden. I had no qualms about the size and basics of the hotel, I think it is... More

I was told that this hotel will be closing on November 1, but I'll write the review anyway because credit where credit is due. This is a wonderful little hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. The single room I had was a bit small but having said that it suited me fine. It's within reasonable walking distance to Amsterdam's attractions... More

I cannot recommend this hotel for a visit. The rooms were old, looked very worn. The beds were ok, altho when booking we purchased king size bed, we got separate beds put together. The bathroom was falling apart and the shower water was completely random, varying from scolding hot to freezing cold in seconds. In addition, the walls seem to... More

Hotel has an excellent location very close to (walking distance within 10 minutes) the most famous museums, canal cruise companies, rent-a-bike companies, the largest park in Amsterdam (Vondelpark). Single room is very small, however that was what I expected. Staff very friendly, the breakfast ok, but not worth the money (11 Eur).

Stayed at Hotel Hestia for three nights. The hotel was well located and in walking distance to the main shopping strip, a few restaurants, tram stop, the airport bus stop and a casino. The rooms were big enough, however the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. The hotel had all the basic necessities so was good enough for a few nights.

This hotel is close to the Leidseplein. It's far enough away so you have peace, but close enough to walk where you want to go. The trams are right there, but up the street so they don't bother you. The morning breakfast is fresh and you have a nice choice. Our room was HUGE, and so was the bathroom with... More

Ideal location close to trams and buses. Easy walk to Museums and Vondelpark. Friendly staff. Very large comfortable family room appreciated by all. Most enjoyable stay and would use again when visiting Amsterdam.

A nice hotel in a lovely leafy area, near the Vondelpark and walking distance to the main sights. The rooms are very small but the service was really good. Amsterdam is very expensive city anyway so you pay for what you get. Small rooms but all facilities are available.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in early June 2014. Location is great, in a quiet street, just behind the Leidseplein and very near to all the big museums. Trams and buses stop nearby. The room can only be described as 'box-room', but I wasn't expecting anything else at this price and the room was clean and comfortable... More

Hotel is in a very convenient location to the major museums and also to walk into the main part of the city. The rooms are very clean and there is a lovely breakfast room with a small garden area with outside seating. Very peaceful and lovely.

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.
