“Lovely boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a great place to stay! It is situated near the major museums, and just far enough away from the touristy center of the city. There are some great restaurants in the neighborhood and beautiful streets to stroll. You are also a few blocks away from the Vonderpark.
Our room was spacious with a great terrace, but no air conditioner, (so it was pretty warm during that really bad heat wave).
I am not a big fan of large hotels, so Museum Suites was perfect. It has character, charm, and very helpful owners.

This is a lovely lovely hotel.
I went there together with my bf for a weekend trip to Amsterdam. Since he's a big art fan, I thought that this place could be interesting. We were a bit sceptical because we usually go to the bigger chain hotels but our fears were completely unnecessary.
Museum Suites is a lovely place at a great location. The owners are very nice and helpful. You can see the care that they have put into every detail in your room (we had the Vermeer Suite).
It is super clean and quiet and just overall a great experience.

My husband and 9 year old daughter have just spent 4 days in glorious Amsterdam and stayed at this wonderful little chic hotel just down the road from the Van Gogh Museum. Anne-Marie and her mother Frieda who own the hotel were so hospitable and helpful - assisting us with luggage, up the 3 flights of stairs to our wonderful "Mondrian" suite on the top floor, and providing a babysitter so my husband and I could have a night out!. Our room was beautifully appointed with modern fixtures and fittings and most excellently a Nespresso machine. Highly recommend this to any type of traveller whether with children or without. Fabulous!

We had a wonderful stay at the Museum Suites, which is in a quiet, elegant section of Amsterdam. The hotel is close to many museums and restaurants and a quick tram or bus ride to other sites in the city. We loved the unique feeling that our suite had - we stayed in the Van Gogh suite which has a beautiful terrace overlooking beautiful gardens and homes. The décor was elegant and each room had everything you need - including a Nespresso coffee machine which always hit the spot. The room was quiet and luxurious with a very comfortable bed.The owner, Frieda, was extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the Museum Suites and would stay there again.

Actually, great everything. Location, facility, staff all superb. We had breakfast once and it was way too much and too expensive. A nearby café for a coffee and a croissant was fine. You are right on the train line into town--easy. And the park is just around the corner. Also obviously a nice part of town judging by the number of BMW's Audi's, and Mercedes we saw. The room was terrific. We'd stay here again.

This is a small little hotel with a few unique rooms in a peaceful and beautiful part of Amsterdam. As a family run business, it is not one of the soulless chain hotels that are so common these days. It is set in amongst other houses in an area just south of the main part of Amsterdam. Each room is decorated according to a famous Dutch painter (eg, Van Gogh, Rembrandt etc) and they are simply delightful. The beds are comfortable and the view into the garden out the back is wonderful. If you take a breakfast package they are willing to cater for dietary requirements if you have them. Lastly, the service by Frieda and her daughter is warm and friendly. They take the time to chat with you and are genuinely interested about you. This place is a little more expensive but it is certainly worth it if it is in your budget.

We loved our stay at this boutique hotel! The location is a home with only 4 suites within walking distance of nice restaurants, famous museums and the tram line. The Rembrandt suite, located on the front of the house, is beautifully appointed with an extra large bathroom featuring a jacuzzi tub. There was a coffeemaker and a hair dryer provided. The bed is cozy and inviting - honestly one of the best beds I have ever slept on. Amsterdam is a vibrant city and one that apparently never sleeps. The traffic noise is noticeable at all hours, but ear plugs provided a quiet, restful sleep. Everyone here aims to please and don't forget to book breakfast at least once in the dining room. The candles are lit, the food is plentiful, fresh and delicious. Every day was a new adventure and we were perfectly delighted with our choice of accommodations.

Room Tip: The Van Gogh suite faces an interior garden away from the street. I'd like to try that one next.
