Really enjoyed our stay here, reasonable space in rooms and bathroom and very friendly staff. Only complaints are the shower temperature would not go above 38 degrees which was far too cold for winter and there are no lifts for baggage, had to be dragged up the 3 very steep and narrow staircases. Not ideal for unfit or weaker travellers.... More

This structure has many pros, as from the other reviews, but also a con: unfortunately rooms were very noisy and we were awaken several times per night (everytime someone passed in front of our door). On the other hand, location is good, in a quiet street, not so far from the city center, which can be explored also on foot.... More

This is possibly the worst hotel I've stayed at when it comes to value for money. I know that Amsterdam has expensive accomendation, but if everything is this bad, I feel sorry for everyone planning a vacation in this city. Here's what I think of Asterisk: Good: -The location is fine, with the city center and rijksmuseum within walking distance.... More

Hotel Asterisk is a no frills 2 star hotel.Helpful staff and an OK breakfast.The rooms are small but clean.The shared WC is clean but both soap dispensers were empty for 3 days.I thought the surveillance cameras in the dining room were too intrusive and totally unnecessary.

We spent four nights at the Hotel Asterisk in early October and our experience was the same as related by Conwegian below. Our double deluxe room faced the street but there was very little street noise when the windows were sealed. When you wanted them open, they open fully and there are no screens. The furnishings and decor are basic... More

An OK basic hotel. You get what you pay for. OK breakfast with everything you need. Bread, honey, yogurt, eggs, ... (No bacon, no scrambled eggs). The room was very basic but OK. In a quiet street. Stayed there for three nights.

This hotel made our stay in Amsterdam amazing! The staff were very friendly and helpful (when we arrived the receptionist went above and beyond spending plenty of time giving us his personal favourites to see in the city). The room was huge (like an apartment) with an outside courtyard! Clean and modern rooms! Amazing value for the price. The daily... More
