If you are looking for a nice mix of location and hotel on a slight budget in Amsterdam then I couldn't recommend Hotel Asterisk highly enough. Situated just outside the centre of Amsterdam, the hotel is just a small walk away from all great sights (closest to the museum plaza, which is just a 10 minute walk away). The centre... More

Located just outside the centre, this hotel has a perfect location. Decent value in a very expensive city for hotels. Basic clean room. Exactly what was needed for a couple who would rather be out than couped up in hotel

My wife and I arrived Ámsterdam at 2:00 a.m. and we didnt' have any reservation. Hotel Asterisk was our only option. Although it was late, they were very friendly and opened the kitchen to prepare something to eat for us. Location is good, in a quiet neighborhood very close from Heineken Experience. Breakfast ast is vwas great.

I found this hotel by chance on a comparison website, but booked directly via the hotel's website, as I could pay on arrival, rather than upfront, as was the case with the comparison website. A couple of days before our arrival, I received a welcome e-mail, offering help with booking tickets for the main sights, excursions, etc, which I thought... More

We stayed at the annex, the 2 stars one. Was a very good experience, nice staff, good and big bedroom, and very confy beds. If I had to fault something, maybe the pillow was a bit too high for me and there was no complimentary tea/coffee. Overall, was a very pleasant stay.

Having booked directly with the hotel, the booking form stated that payment would be taken at the end of my stay. I was a little taken aback when payment was requested as soon as I arrived. I asked if I could see the room first and the young man seemed surprized that I would ask, but took me to see... More
