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

Room small but clean, staff very friendly and helpful...went for English speaking driving lessons with Driveright who collected me at the door.After a weekend of driving around Amsterdam(opposite side of the road) I was only too glad to return to my comfy space and chill with TV.Don't forget to help yourself to discount cards in reception and buy your tram...

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

It was so expensive for the type of the rooms. The location was correct, the service was correct, the breakfast was normal. It was a small room, and not very big, very normal room an without bathroom.

Irma B, Owner at Hotel Asterisk, responded to this review

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I understand that you stayed in a budget room with shared facilities. The budget rooms are indeed smaller than the rooms with private facilities. Prices are flexible, and depend on moment of reservation and number of rooms left, just like airplaintickets. When you were in Amsterdam, a major congress was held in RAI,... More
