I stayed here for one night on a budget as a deal popped up at the last minute that I could not turn down. The room I had was small but the communal bathroom was surprisingly clean. The breakfast they served in the morning was limited so I left somewhat hungry. The hotel is located close to a few parks... More

We stayed at the Hotel Asterisk for 2 nights. We were in a triple room with a private bath. The room was neat and clean. The one maintenance issue we had was promptly addressed and fixed. The neighborhood is relatively a quiet side street and it was nice to have the windows open overnight. Our only disappointment was the complementary... More

The breakfast is good. The terrace is really nice on the summer. Our room was very comfortable. The location is excellent close to almost all the museums. There was noise at night. The staff is nice and helpful.

Its a budget hotel so don't expect 5 star luxury- It is clean and tidy and very easy to get to the city center and attractions. Missed the breakfast so cant comment but on the whole if I was in Amsterdam I would stay here again as I had no problems with it. Why pay through the roof when you... More

Good value for money if you are okay with being in a room the size of a shoe box. I visited with my boyfriend and only one could stand as there was no space! Bathroom was also shared so if you don't mind rushing your showers etc then it'll be a pleasant enough experience. Breakfast was really good and location... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. From your reation, I can see that you stayed in a shared facilities room, which is indeed 10m2. Maybe next visit to Amsterdam you can consider to stay with us in a room with private bathroom. These rooms are up to 22m2 so they will give you subtanstional more living space. The shared... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a double room with bathroom. Both room and bathroom were a good size and although facilities were basic it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a bit limited in the choice available but good enough. The hotel though is in a good area - its away from the main tourist sites and the crowds but... More

Nice Amsterdam house with gorgeous eating area. If you want a Holiday Inn suite go to the holiday inn. My room was tiny but I loved it. It had what I needed. I booked a room with a shared toilet, upon arrival they said it was double booked and gave me a room with a full bathroom. Even better! Staff... More

Stayed here for a recent weekend break, the hotel was clean, the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was okay, not too much choice but to be expected with continental. Great value for money overall, the shared bathrooms were not an issue as we didn't have to queue and were able to use them freely when we needed to. This... More

Horel is very nice and clean and breakfast is realy good. But check the officil site before booking! we booked at hotels.com and thought that everuthing would be ok. But we got shared bathroom and extremly small room (the bed for 2 was 1.3 meter width). Luckily the hotel staff was very helpful and helped us to upgrate our room
