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

If you're a museum buff and plan on spending time in the Rijsmuseum or the Van Gogh, this is ideally located. It is a short walk from Vondelspark and Leidesplein. The rooms are quite basic and small. The price reflects what is offered so it is worth it if you will be out seeing the sites and do not intend... More

Basic hotel room but nice, clean and quiet! Very friendly service. Perfect if you, like me, spend the whole of the day in the city and only just need a place to sleep and have breakfast in the morning.

Good location, 30 min to central station or 15min by tram. Near to museumplein (15min on feet). The breakfast is really nice!! It's ok to stay few days but not if you want to be quiet, it's really really noisy.

We enjoyed our stay at the Asterisk. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location was good. Our room was small, but then we did go for the budget option, but it was clean and we were given lots of towels. The only downside was that the shared bathrooms need updating. The breakfast buffet consisted of a very... More
