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

Very good hotel at a great value. Close to very good restaurants and bars if you want to explore the local side of Amsterdam. Clean, quiet, Good price, helpful staff. Fully recommended if you want to avoid overpaying for a comfortable place in Amsterdam

I came here with my girlfriend and stayed for 3 nights in a very comfortable twin room. There were two single beds in the room, but we pushed them together and they were very comfortable. The hotel is a five minute walk from the Heineken experience, which is a good afternoon to do, and in terms of getting your bearings... More

We go to Amsterdam pretty frequently - If you need a good room, at a good price, with a great breakfast - that is not too close to Centraal - then this should be a great hotel for you. It is also very close to the Museumplein and the front desk will sell you tickets in advance so you don't... More
