Worst hotel and unprofessional staff. Don't get lured by their deals and ads. We booked this hotel way in advance, but when we got there, they don't have a room. We were sent to a sister hotel far from the city center. When got to the other hotel, they were not even aware of the transfer. When we got a... More

Hotels location is good, on a high fashion street (enjoyed the window shopping!), a short walk to Van Gogh and Rijks museums; near tram stops and a short walk to airport connection bus. It's a pleasant stroll to canals and main restaurant area and we felt safe walking back even late at night. We had a quad room which was... More

This was our 2nd return to this hotel. Pleasantly surprised by new doctor inside. We stayed in superior double on higher floor overlooking garden and on our second visit in double room in basement. The basement one seemed very new which I liked although the view is non existent we didn't mind as we spent the whole days outdoors exploring.... More

The hotel is in a good location (the Museum Quarter) and a short walk to the trams into the main city (number 2 and 5), but also a pleasant walk into the city would take about 45 minutes, but some nice bars and cafés to stop at on the way. Supermarket and a couple of local restaurants near the hotel... More

Loved the location, just blocks from the Van Gogh and Rijks museums; next to a trams stop that had 2 lines to the station. (Amsterdam is small - its all a lovely walk through the canals if you don't want to take trams). Staff was helpful, but, the room was very small and did not have a place (drawer) to... More

Rest of hotel very average but good location and nice staff Also very quiet and nice to sleep with window open and fresh air... More

Only good thing to say about this hotel is the location. My room was small with a tiny bathroom. Bed was soft to a ridiculous level and shower was impossible to set to a level that it didn't burn skin. Staff lets you wait and appears quite uninterested. My double bed "upgrade", landed me in the basement, with only cellar... More

They put me in a room in the basement. Room was sufficient but the bed was absolutely terrible..I still have back pain 10 days on.. At 5:00 A.M. in the morning I was woken up because of the sounds from the floor above. It sounded like elephants walking around! Also, the breakfast room is too small for the capacity of... More

Nothing special about this place except the excellent location. It's at the east end of the Vondelpark, which is great fun, and just around the corner is the main street where you can visit the Stedelijk modern art museum, the van Gogh museum, the Concertgebouw concert hall and the Rijksmuseum. There are also plenty of good restaurants and coffee houses... 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.
