“A wonderful establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Museum Suites was everything and more what my husband and I expected! We had read the reviews, and we expected a quality establishment. We found even more. The location in the museum area of Amsterdam was perfect. The small hotel is located on a quiet street that allows you to get away from the crowds, yet we thoroughly enjoyed our evenings in the local restaurants and pubs. We were able to walk to the museums, enjoy Vondel Park, and walk to many of the other sites. The tram was less than 200 meters from the front door of the hotel for getting to other parts of Amsterdam. We stayed in the Mondarian Suite, which is on the top floor overlooking the gardens. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. We felt like we were in our "own world" as we looked out on the gardens and enjoyed the many comforts provided in the room. Frida and Annemarie did everything to make our stay special. We had fresh flowers in our room, chocolate eggs for Easter, recommendations for restaurants, and arrangements for a taxi to take us to the airport. All of this with a warm, caring attitude that indicated that Frida and Annemarie wanted us to have a wonderful time! This is a small hotel built with caring and love, and every detail shows that they are dedicated to making guests' stay a truly memorable experience. Thank you to both Frida and Annemarie!

Excellent establishment, run in a very professional and at the same time personal way. Museum Suites is Frida's and Annemarie's lovely home and they share it with the world.
We stayed in the Vermeer suite which is on the top floor overlooking the street. The suite was lovely, immaculately clean and well equipped. The kitchenette with the microwave oven saved us quite a lot of money as eating out in Amsterdam is very expensive.
The in floor heating in the bathroom was a pleasant surprise and the linen were of excellent quality.
Only downside the twin beds. Although they are very comfortable, they are anti-cuddling. I spent half the first night in the gap between the two mattresses and then resigned to my side.
As for the location, while it's close to the museums it's also a little far to walk to the historic center. Trams are handy but also expensive (2.70 euros) so the best solution is to have a bike.
Regarding breakfast, Bagels and Beans on Baerlestraat 40 is a good place as is Simon Meyssen bakery on Baerlestraat 23. Both are close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the street may be a little noisy

Museum Suites was a great find: huge room (we stayed in Rembradt suite), brilliant location and wonderful service always with a smile. This is a small hotel, within walking distance (and tram outside the front door) of the sights but out of the humbub. The room was immaculately clean. Annmarie provide all the help we could ever want from recommending restaurants, ordering taxi and staying out of hours ... and always very happy with it.
Some may complain about the lack of facilities like a restaurant but with cafes just down the road, who needs it?
Some may complain about the steep stairs but that's what there is in the traditional houses: it's character and we loved it.
Some may complain about the noise of the trams on the road outside but apart from the trams, it was quiet and they did not go too late into the night.
If we go back to Amsterdam, we'd definitely want to stay here again ... and maybe check out another room.

Stayed in the Vermeer Suite (top floor) with my daughter during a weekend in Amsterdam.
We loved this place as it was lovely designed and with cooking facilities, very friendly and helpful hosts. The lack of little signs saying "don´t..." and "do..." made us feel as if we were staying in someone´s stylish home! The area is very convient within walkin distance from the museums as well as close to tram stops.
We loved the cafes and restaurants as well as shops along Cornelis Schuytstraat. A couple of nice stores selling organic food an other yummie items!
Would recommend this to anyone (except those who can´t walk stairs!!)

Room Tip: The Vermeer Suite has cooiking facilities

We enjoyed every second staying at the Museum Suites. From the moment of booking, the service level and attention to detail was second to none. We stayed in the Van Gogh Suite over my partners 40th birthday and having contacted Anne-marie before hand to order a bottle of champers as a surprise, she very kindly offered to decorate the room with balloons. The room is gorgeous with fresh flowers and Van Gogh paintings, was great having the balcony to sit out on and the bathroom was very classy. We shall without doubt be returning to this hidden oasis in Amsterdam at some point, and certainly recommending to family and friends.

We stayed in the Rembrandt room and loved it. Very nice to have a fire place in the room as well.
You can easily walk to the city and for a lovely stroll in the Vondelpark -aside from the fact that the wonderful Van Gogh- and Rijksmuseum are only a stonethrow away.
There are also plenty breakfast-, lunch- and dinner places nearby.
The newly renovated (totally overpriced) Conservatorium Hotel is just down the street -if you fancy a Cocktail, and so is the vibrant 'Momo'-Bar and Restaurant.

You have a coffee-machine and a mini-bar in the beautifully-decorated room, and the bathroom is simply perfect.

Very charming owner and helpful staff as well, who are eager to make your stay unforgettable.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Museum Suites and can only recommend it !

Room Tip: We loved the Rembrandt Suite, but for light sleepers it may be a bit noisy, as it is facing the stre...

Found Museum Suites by chance after looking at numerous reviews of hotels on Tripadvisor.
Having recently returned from 2 nights in Amsterdam I can only echo the views of all the other reviews on this site.

Museum Suites is excellent value for money compared with other hotels in Amsterdam.
The Van Gough Suite was clean, bright, spacious and very comfortable.
The Owner was friendly + helpful.
The location was good, 1 minute from a tram stop, nice stroll through the park if you want to walk to the attractions and in a nice area with little boutique shops + cafes.
The Van Gough Suite has a large balcony which was really nice,especially if visiting in summer.
The high ceilings give the room a real feeling of space.

Basically this is a fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam, I would definately recommend it and will most certainly book again for our next trip to the city.

Room Tip: No Bath Tub in Van Gough Suite buit does have a large sit out Balcony
