Hotel The Neighbour's Magnolia is more likely a 2 star hotel rated as 3*. The biggest advantage is it's location. Being located in a quiet place near large Vondel park, at a walking distance from the Museums square (Van Gogh, etc.), a lot of cafes in the vicinity of the hotel, it can be a good vantage point for both...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Neighbour's Magnolia. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The street below our room was a bit noisy and you could hear the tram going by- but when we closed the window it mostly blotted out the noise. (There was no aircon so this might be uncomfortable if it's very hot- there was... More

Welcoming and friendly hotel. Clean and fresh too. We loved the way that the honesty bar was available all the time for drinks, snacks, tea and coffee, but if a member of staff was there, they offered to make us whatever we wanted. Position is just right; you can walk into the city through the park (30mins to the centre)... More

Really phenomenal hotel experience. Excellent service and superb facilities. The staff were incredibly helpful. Rented a bicycle from the hotel and it added to how great my stay in Amsterdam was. Also, the breakfast buffet was excellent. Would definitely stay there again.

The Neighbour's Magnolia was the ideal place for us in Amsterdam. Situated well out of the "Disneyland" part of central Amsterdam, the hotel is in a very nice, quiet, somewhat swanky neighbourhood. It's a short walk to the Van Gogh museum, etc., and the tram stop is almost right outside the front door, which allows you to venture in and... More

Lovely hotel, really nice staff. The rooms are comftable and clean but NO ELEVATOR so you have to climb the stairs. The hotel is a bit far from the city center, you neet to take the tram or bikes or go for 30 min to the center. Anyway, we had a nice stay and we'll come back! Recommend you all.

I spent three days in Amsterdam and stayed in this hotel. Everything was perfect: location, my room (#5), breakfast, service . I followed the recommendations of my sister and her son who stayed in this hotel couple of years ago. I am glad that I picked this hotel for my stay. It was absolutely enjoyable to be there. I booked... More

I stayed here with a friend for a long weekend exploring Amsterdam. Having visited Amsterdam before I took the decision to look for a hotel out of the centre and chose this one due to the Trip Advisor previous reviews. I booked directly with the hotel and that was easy to do. Before we arrived I told them we were... More

Thank you very much for you feedback, very detailed. It is correct that the rooms at the front can be a bit noisy when you leave the window open, but as you say, just like anywhere else. But they are double glazed and isolate very well and as it is a quiet neighbourhood traffic slows down very early and the... More

We stayed in this room for 1 night during a Europe car trip. It was surprisingly great! The value we paid vs value received is great. The room was very modern and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. We were about 20 minutes away from most of the main attractions in Amsterdam. We also bought some tickets to events/museums from... More
