About 4 houses away from an entrance to Vondelpark, which is beautiful, and about 3-5 minutes away walking from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gough museum etc. There is an elevator. There is lots of tourist information in the entrance of the hotel, but the staff was not very helpful. Our room needed to be renovated We wore our shoes... More

The location was very good. Walking distance to lots of great attractions, and easy access to the trams which take you wherever you might want to go. The staff was also very friendly & accommodating. Check in and out was simple, and there was always someone at the front desk if we needed anything. The breakfast is simple, but very... More

We chose this hotel as it was close to Vondelpark. We have two kids who hadn't flown before, or experienced a holiday in a major capital city. The hotel was well placed to access the more cultural aspects of Amsterdam! The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Our family room was adequate, bordering on cosy. The bathroom was tiny though.... More

Returned from Amsterdam a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel as some of the reviews were quite negative. My friend and I stayed for 3 days and had a twin room which was described as a small double. It was perfect for the duration of the trip, it had a television and kettle facilities. Yes the... More

This hotel was pretty decent for everything we wanted! It was close to everything we were doing but without it being too central, so it was nice to walk for about 10/15 mins everyday. The room was pretty small, but we were only there for 3 nights so we didnt need it any bigger! We didn't pay much at all... More

I visited this hotel at the beginning of June and stayed 3 nights here. My friends and i where on the 3rd floor, looking out onto the road at the front of the hotel, even with the windows wide open it was still a very quiet area. Before going i had seen some quite negative reviews however for our stay... More

I've come to realise how important the location of hotel etc is to the tenor of the whole holiday - and this hotel was great. 50 steps from an entrance to Vondelpark meant we could breakfast in the park cafe every morning and take chill out time there 2 or 3 times a day. The hotel is clean, provides tea... 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.
