I stayed here with my brother in May. I echo what others have said about the rude owner. She actually shouted at us over leaving a spare key on the front desk, despite her being nowhere to be found. She told us we were not to visit the red light district which I found odd. Overall the room was fine,... More

Even without having spent 4 nights in a very mediocre hotel 15 minutes by bus from the city center, I would still rate this hotel very highly. I wish so much my wife and I had stayed here all five nights, not only would we have saved considerable money, but our stay would have been that much better. The day... More

We were 3, the room was very clean, the shared bathroom and showers as well! The breakfast room has a great view, great ambiance! Friendly staff. Perfect location: walking distance from van gogh museum, heiniken experience and vondelpark! One thing that can be improved is wifi in the rooms (u can only have it if u r standing by the... More

Great place for budget friendly people. Its close to the tram and bus stop and just few minutes walk to the city center.The receptionist is great and very friendly. Had it not been for my rude encounter with the owner of the property I would have rated the hotel 'excellent'. I would definitely stay at this hotel if I get... More

Have stayed here 3 times now when visiting IBC at the Rai Centre. Its a basic hotel, no frills. Continental breakfast included. Free WiFi, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Close to the trams for the exhibition centre and very close to eateries and bars on Museum Plien.

It was a very nice stay. Breakfast was good, rooms too. One bathroom per floor, but wasn't a big problem. Great location - directly across street from Rijksmuseum! Kooky owner was fun too. Lots of stairs - quite an amusing sight the first time you walk in!

First, those stairs. Do not stay here if you have vertigo, any sort of infirmity or heavy luggage. They're not just steep (I'm used to Dutch stairs), they're precipitous. And don't stay here if you like the bland amenities and en suite facilities of a corporate chain. But do stay here if you want a closer approximation of what life... More

This is a lovely characterful hotel in an excellent location with a easy halfhour bus ride from the airport. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are great. The accommodation is fairly basic but with comfy beds, clean and with a sink in the room. Even though we had to share loo and shower rooms it wasn't... More

With one exception -- the stairs that go up and up, right out of a Martin Escher drawing -- we have nothing but praise for this small hotel one block from the Rijksmuseum, two blocks from the Van Gogh and Stedelijk Museums, and directly on the tram stop to Central train station and bus stop to the airport. The place... More

I realise many people have their dislikes about this "Hotel" - but really it doesn't get more dutch than Hotel Museumzicht. Traveled there with my mom. Absolutely fabulous! The horrid stairs, rude hostess, arbitrary beds, shared bathroom and fabulous breakfast just added to our wonderful stay in Amsterdam. So close to all transport and amazing RIJSTTAFEL right around the corner... More
