Museum Suites is a wondeful find, walkable to Museum square and Koncert Gebau etc, yet also a tram stopping yards away to get to just about anywhere. In fact location wise you can get to the airport the backway with a tram and then regular train for less money and a lot quicker than through central station. Located on a residential street this is an old restored Amsterdam house, along a street of similar places. Nice stores around the corner, and wonderful small cafes etc, are all elegant in style.
The hotel its self only has a few suites, each uniqely designed and named after famous people from Amsterdam. On our last day we were shown around them all as we wanted to see which we might stay in next time.
We had the Van Gogh suite, which was at the back with a wonderful very large balcony over the back gardens, Such a great place to sit outside in the sun.
The suite, just like the rest of the place, was immaculate. Nothing could be faulted, super clean, very well restored, yet modern conveniences like a wonderful bathroom,high end coffee machine, and just a really nice feel to the whole place.
Having seen all of the suites I dont think you could be unhappy in any of them. Just decide how much space you need, front of back of the hotel, how many floors up and if a balcony is important to you.
Freide and Annmarie were excellent. It was like being welcomed into their house. They made sure we had reservations and travel tips for things around amsterdam, they got us decaf coffee for the fancy machine in the room. They helped us get the free wifi (they will lend you a laptop if needed) and really nothing was too much bother.
When you are a corporate traveller like I am, and get tired of staying in the same chain hotels, this is the change you need. We feel like this is now our place to stay whenever visiting Amsterdam, and like others said, its a compelling reason to come back.
I think whether for business or leisure if you want a bit of quality, unique style, great quality location you can do no wrong staying here.
ALso the first hotel where you can have an email interchange before going to ensure your stay will be successfull.
I cannot recommend it enough.
