We had dinner in the courtyard of this hotel and had a lovely evening. We had an Asian dish to start, which was very tasteful. Suzanne and Danny were serving us and did a great job, very kind and good service!!! Well done. Oh and the cheesecake desert is highly recommended too. Also great price-quality ratio.

The name of the hotel is because the building was actually a college before it became a hotel. Modern decoration, comfortable rooms. Good restaurant and a location that is not in the centre of the city, but is near the main museums in a good neighbourhood.

Beautiful hotel in an great affluent area near the museums. Sad to reach such bad reviews. We had a very good experience with a lovely room. Ours had high ceilings, well decorated, small but well done bathroom with nice amenities, robes and slippers. Confortable bed and pillows, and good air conditioning. If anything, our a/c was working too cold. We... More

One night stay in central Amsterdam. Lovely refreshing drink and cookie on arrival by very friendly professional staff. Rooms very comfortable with air con, free-wi fi, Nespresso coffee machine and good range of products in minibar. Room service menu was not cheap but food tasted good. Only tip would be to cover plate with a cloche for hygiene and put... More

We stayed for 3 nights on our trip to Amsterdam in May 2015. The hotel is housed in a century old former college. The rooms have been remodeled with all modern amenities without losing their ancient charm. The location in a relatively quiet neighbourhood is great as it is close to the city centre by tram or by foot, loads... More

We arrived for one night only and booked at the last minute with the "hotel tonight" App. When we arrived to the hotel the friendly staff offered us "the Chemistry room". The hotel's name refers to its past as an old college - the charming suite where we stayed used to serve as the chemistry lab. These days the hotel... More

Very nice and classy atmosphere from the moment you step into the hotel. The staff is really doing a good job helping customers around, and listening to feedback. Very clean and safe place with a lot of charm, and well located too. Only minus, the Internet connection in the room could have been a bit faster.

This is a very good hotel (& I have tried several hotel in Amsterdam). I had three nights there & my friend & I could not have faulted the service - the students try really hard to do a good job & usually succeed. The rooms are large & quirky ( which beats the bland, box-like rooms of most hotels).... More

We LOVED our stay at The College Hotel. Do NOT let the location in 'southern' Amsterdam scare you off. It is very close to the Prince Canal, the Van Gogh and Rijks Museums, a large park, and amazing restaurants. We found the rooms very comfortable and yes, a bit on the dark side but after reading reviews on Trip Advisor,... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
