“Amazing, friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We stayed here in August 2011 for our honeymoon. Minute we mentioned we were on honeymoon they upgraded our room and also delievered flowers and chocolate. The staff who worked there were always friendly and told us exactly were to go and were not go inside amsterdam. Room was clean , well kept and the bed was very comfortable. All in all we had an amazing time and I rate this as one of the best hotels ive ever stayed in. Definatly will be visiting there again

Room Tip: say you on honeymoon!

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon in Aug 2011. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. They suggested nice places to visit for eating, shopping and seeing. They also helped us get a van to the airport when our stay was over. The hotel itself was nice, although the room was a bit small. It did have a good sized bathroom however and good a/c. It was located in a quieter, safe-feeling neighborhood about a five minute walk from the Museum District. It was perfect to be just a little bit away from the busier streets and tons of people.

We stayed there for a week. If you find a good offer, and are willing to settle for a 3* hotel it could be a good choice for you. With that said, on the possitive side, the tramway is very close and will get you within 10 min to the city center or to the museumplein,the neiborhood is safe, the staff is polite, breakfast is basic but ok and the beds comfortable.On the other hand, the carpet needs imediate stripping or deep cleaning, the bathrooms need renovating (shower curtains dirty and falling on our heads, problems turning the taps) and the standart bedrooms feel a little cramped...

Room Tip: Do not pay more for a suite the only difference from standart rooms is a lounge chair and a little m...

Myself and my husband stayed for three nights in the Memphis recently and was very impressed with it.
Although a little way out of the tourist areas it was a 2min walk from the tram stops, which ran frequently.(tram 16 or 2) taking you wherever you needed to go around Amsterdam in ten mins max.
The hotel itself was in an up Market area of Amsterdam and was in walking distance of local coffee shops and lovely restaurants.
Hotel itself was great. Friendly staff, clean modern rooms, free wifi which worked well and an enjoyable breakfast too.
We would most certainly stay in the hotel again .

Since I planned in advance and knew the hotel was outside the city center, it was no surprise. Public transport from the airport was both reasonable, relatively easy and direct. The hotel was located directly on one tram line and easy walking distance to another. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and although my single room was not even close to spacious, it was sufficient and had a nice view. I was not visiting Amsterdam to spend any time but sleeping in the room! As for meals and drinks, I had also learned in advance that the prices in the hotel might be high compared to numerous other venues in the neighborhood. In fact, I found places for food and drink abound and even the shopping nearby was fun. All in all, the Memphis was very good choice. In fact, one night when I missed the last tram going past the hotel, it was a refreshing walk on a chilly night without paying the high rates for a taxi. I'd stay again!

We are only here for 4 days and we don't mind that it's outside the city center since it's right on the tram line. However, when we first arrivef we were dying of thirst and tgere was noone to either welcome or serve us drinks. The double rooms are so tiny that it is impossible to move in it. There was nothing in the mini bar except water and the staff is so ride that they can knock on your door even if there is a do not disturb sign on it just because they suscept that someone is smoking on that floor. I've stayed in other 4 star hotels in different parts of the world but this was the worst in terms of staff, service, size and food. Stay in a tent in amsterdam but never go there!!!
