The main attribute for this hotel was its good location and clean accommodation. Breakfast was reasonable. I lodged for 4 nights in June. The guest room is tiny, you have to argue to get an additional flimsy towel. There are no wash cloths, tissue boxes, ice, or similar expectations to be provided by a hotel.. There is no air conditioning... More

This was a wonderful hotel - on the outside of the "central" part of the city, but still an easy walk to all locations. The first two days we walked all around the city, and then our last day we rented bikes from the hotel and rode everywhere. It has been recently remodeled, has a very nice breakfast included, and...

Great location in a quiet neighbourhood just 1 minute from trams, buses and canal boats and 2 minutes from the Heineken Experience museum. Staff were really friendly and helpful and provide tips on trips, travel and eating out. Large modern rooms with good facilities and excellent continental breakfast included. Great restaurants nearby, try Monteverdi or Taj, and lots of coffee... More

It was really a hard task to figure out negative things about this hotel as everything was positive and almost perfect. Location was so good, not so far from city center and it requires 10 - 15 minutes by tram to reach Dam Square . 2 tram lines to central station are just 2 minutes from the hotel in addition... More

We were lucky to get a booking at asterisk during Easter break as all other accommodations were full to the brim. Was abit pricey but was expected given the season. Location was better than expected. Only 700m from leidseplein and all the museums and canals. Short walk to nearest tram station. Hotel was overall small. Rooms were large enough but... More

We come here as a group from work each year for 10-11 days for a tradeshow and have used this hotel for 4-5 years now. The rooms have greatly improved over that time from being quite dated to being smart with excellent bathrooms with great showers. The beds are also very comfortable which is unusual for Netherlands and very good.... More

The hotel is in a walking distance from all main places which you should visit in Amsterdam. Breakfast was really good as for such level hotel. I also enjoyed pillows - they were big and soft. Single person apartments were very tiny. I also was not lucky to get room in the uppermost floor so my room was next to... More
