I had very few options first week in May but lucked out with Hotel Des Arts. A quick trip of 4 nights had me centered (maybe?) between the train station (Amsterdam Centraal) and the museums and sites I wanted to visit. Everything was a walkable distance and the hotel looks out onto a canal. The staff was really nice, breakfast... More

Great locations, rooms clean although a bit dated. We went for my daughters 18th and the staff were helpful and friendly. It is right by the flower market, 10 minutes form bars, resturants and nightclubs, 2 mintues from lots of shops, 25 minutes from the anne frank museum, dam square and red light district. Is situated on the canal and... More

Stayed here over New Years due to late booking and limited options. Location is excellent, all the sights nearby and tram right outside the door. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the impression of the hotel. The bathroom smelled of urine and did not feel clean and there was no towel for hand wash. The water pressure in the... More

There is nearly no facilities. Rooms couldn't be more basic. We had to ask for a hair dryer. Breakfast involve no effort from staff the only cooked thing is a hard boiled eggs. Over all disappointing experience.

Just returned from a weekend at this establishment, let me start by saying that this place is really a Guest House not a Hotel as it has next to no facilities. Hotel prices in Amsterdam are very high and this place was on the cheaper scale but for 160 euros per night for a twin room I was expecting better.... More

We learned our lesson the hard way! Should have checked out the reviews ahead of time. On the outside the place looks great as does the 'lobby' but from that point on, it was down hill! The rooms are very old, low ceilings and awful steps...very dangerous (they are all different heights) The bathroom was worse than a college dorm... More

A really fine building, well maintained for its age. Room toilet/shower was a little dissapointing, but who cares! For the price and location it is very good value and the owner was truely hospitable. 10 ot of 10 for the buffet breakfasts too. Hotel des Arts would be my first choice when returning to Amsterdam.

I have stayed in this hotel twice now for business but my company has been staying here for 5 years. The hotel is spread across many floors and has several stair cases to get to all the rooms. If you are looking for a hotel where every room, corridor and stairway looks exactly the same then this is not for... More

Our family of 4 stayed in their loft room which allowed for 2 twin beds on one floor and then you went up some stairs for 3 twin beds. There was no a/c available and it was very warm, so we needed to have the windows open for air - the problem was the window faces the street (very noisy... More
