We spent two nights at this hotel. The rooms are small but adequate, and the en suite is a decent size. If you are in Amsterdam to see the city then you really don't need anything bigger than this. The beds were comfortable and the rooms cosy. The location is excellent, very close to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum,... More

The reservation was for 3 nights, 2 single beds and the room was the Deluxe Quality room. The room number 318 that we were given was Standard, it wasn't clean and there was only 1 bed. The price for 3 nights, € 699 was not equal to the quality for this room and hotel. This experience was not the first... More

Right by the Vondelpark, the Rijksmuseum, nice cafes in nearby Albert Cuyp, Leidsplein, the tram to Centraal Station etc.. fantastic for that. It was clean. BUT... a miniature room.. VERY cold (heard lots of other guests complaining about this too), no kettle in room, very expensive drinks (bottled water four times the normal price). However, the worst thing by far... More

This is a great choice if you are looking for a hotel in a good location and want a solid value. The hotel and room are fairly basic, but good enough if you are going to be spending most of your time sightseeing or in business meetings. Please keep in mind there is no fitness center, but Vondelpark is very... More

Stayed here in august 2013 with a girlfriend. We booked online so got a fantastic deal for 4 nights. The room was clean, modern and super comfortable for 2. Take tram 2 or 5 from the centraal station and get off at the hooberstrat station. You will catch a glimpse of the iamsterdam sign in front of you. Walk away... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel last week (june 2013) and were really surprised to see a modern, new , and well organised hotel. The front desk were very nice and helped us with every inquiry we had. THE ROOM- A bit small, but it didn't really matter because we had enough space for every thing we traveled... More

This is the second time I have stayed here. Incredible deals can be found at this hotel and its location is so wonderful. Close to the Rijkesmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Leidsoplein, Hard Rock Café and many many more! The rooms are small but typical size for Europe, they are very clean and well appointed. I was acting as tour guide... More

The hotel location was perfect, close to bars and restaurants, the bus stop and the canal bus and other boat tours, the hotel itself is a different matter. We were told on arrival that the hotel was full so we had been upgraded for free. We were put in a below ground floor level Twin bed room. The beds were... More

Last 2 weeks I spend in 2 Best Western hotels in Amsterdam: Blue Square and Apollo Museum. I'm really astonished how come those 2 hotels which basically cost the same can be rated even close to each other on trip advisor. I'll put here a short comparison of those 2 hotels. Exterior: - Blue Square - this is the biggest... 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.
