Booked a double room for myself and my teenage daughter at the end of march. Flew easy jet from Manchester which took less than an hour. Booked a private taxi from the airport which took about twenty mins. We had a basement room, with en suite shower room. Cleaned daily, coffee and tea etc provided, fresh towels daily. Only downside... More

This is the worst place I have ever attempted to stay at--and I've stayed at some grimy backpacker's hostels in the past! I travel a lot and haven't been to such a gross hotel with uncaring, unaccommodating staff. My husband and I were visiting Amsterdam for a long weekend and wanted a place to stay in the center near the... More

Went here for a bank holiday weekend as part of a hen party on 17 girls. The rooms were great for sharing with either 3 or 4 people per room. Location is fantastic for trams/airport and all tourist attractions. There is a beautiful park by the hotel which is great for people watching. Breakfast was continental which I don't really...

Stayed for a weekend in May. Had a single room. Bed was so uncomfortable - pure sponge. Also air conditioning was set too hot. Bathroom was functional, but both I and the other guests noted that temperature of the shower had a very sharp transition point from cold to boiling. Very near to Vondel Park and Museums, but won't be... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, very nice staff, clean hotel and one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in.walking distance to City centre and if designer shopping is your thing this hotel is on the right street. We would stay here again.

Located on the same street with designer brand stores. - thin walls, will hear every outside sound - good selection of food and beverages for breakfast - TV didn't work - no wash cloths - napkin used in ceiling to block hole Would not recommend even for a night, which is how long I spent.

In comparison to other hotels and hostels, the price wasn't bad for booking only a few weeks in advance when our AirBnB fell through. It was clean. We could get a triple room. It was in a great location, not the heart of town, but by many museums and Vondelpark (just a minute walk away). Also had restaurants and bars... More

I was meant to stay here for 2 nights on the 9th of May, it was chosen by a friend and upon reading reviews I was nervous to say the least but hoped for best. The check in was smooth but the lobby is shabby, took the old rickety lift up to our floor and got to the room. I... More

I paid 150 EUR per night for the room that was so tiny that there were no place to for luggage. The bed was way too soft and I had to ask them to remove it so I could sleep on the floor. Fullfilling that request took 2 days. In the meanwhile I had to sleep in the small corridor... 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.
