Our four night stay at the Museum Suites was so exceptional that I feel we will return to Amsterdam specifically so that we can experience this excellent boutique hotel again!
Our experience was positive in every way from the time of check-in until our departure.
We stayed in the delightful large and bright VanGogh Suite. The room was well equipped with a comfortable bed, excellent linens and towels, a modern and well functioning bathroom, a Nepresso coffee maker along with a kettle for tea, an elegant chandelier along with interesting art and books. A door from the Van Gogh Suite lead outside to a terrace that overlooked the garden below as well as adjacent private back gardes. It iwas the perfect place to sit in the evening - stargazing and recalling the day's events. Fresh flowers were everywhere throughout this hitorical home and all was spotless!
We were impressed with its convenient location, between Willemsparkweg and Van Breestraat; it was a pretty and comfortable neighbourhood. There was easy access to Museums, a Concert Hall, shops, restaurants, and pubs, along with public transit to other parts of Old Amsterdam and beyond. The hotel's closeness to Vondelspark was also noteworthy.
Although breakfast was not included in the cost, we so enjoyed adding breakfast to our experience for one morning. The food was truly wonderful ... fresh, delicious and expertly served in the beautiful dining room. The other mornings we followed instructions to the nearby "Brasserie de Joffers".
Freida Manshande and her daughter Annemarie were friendly, helpful and they were rmost capable hosts and businesswomen. They were willing to review travel ideas and suggest best routes. They were willing to get up early and be present to facilitate our morning departure, making certain that the taxi driver took our suitcases down some very steep stairs and into the cab.
In summary, I would agree with another reviewer, who astutely concluded, "the Museum Suites are peace and quiet with a touch of luxury."
