“A great night's sleep and delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The room was spacious and had everything we needed. The shower was particularly good and the bed was comfortable. The room was generally clean there was just one small spillage (probably from the previous occupants) that had been missed in cleaning up.

There was plenty of choice for breakfast, including for vegetarian. The fresh fruit and juices were delicious and the croissant, breads and 'cake' were very tasty!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We would recommend this hotel to family and friends and we would visit again happily.

could hear every breath from the guests next door but still a cheap place to stay in Amsterdam. staff is very friendly and tram takes you to city center within minutes (take bus 197 from/to airport). there are bicycles in front of the entrance but i prefered to walk. make sure that breakfast is included (otherwise 12,50 will be charged)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We spent four nights in the Memphis and it ticked all the right boxes - easy access to airport and city centre, pleasant area, spotlessly clean, comfortable, spacious bedroom, decent breakfast and helpful staff.
As we were leaving on the last morning thirty minutes before breakfast would be served, we arranged with the chef the previous evening that we could quietly nip into the dining room, have a bowl of cereal, a quick coffee and then go. Unfortunately the supervisor on duty next morning would not allow us under any considerations to have anything - even though we could see that all the food was already arranged and ready for serving. Eventually we persuaded the guy from reception - who was obviously intimidated by her - to get us something, so he rather shamefacedly brought us two slices of bread and cheese. It was a pity that our experience of the hotel ended on such a sour note.
Would we return? Yes, we probably would, because all our other experience of the staff had been so positive and the hotel has a great deal going for it.

Nice hotel in upmarket residential area near the Amsterdam Hilton and opposite Christies.There were nice upmarket shops nearby and the area felt very safe. Trams 2 and 16 were nearby and took you straight in to the city. The museums were only about a kilometre away and could easily be walked.Hotel breakfast was very good and staff very helpful. We bought a tram pass from reception, for 12 euros that allowed unlimited travel on trams and buses.
The room was air conditioned which would be great in summer and the shower/bath had the most powerful shower we had ever experianced.
Stayed on first floor which did not seem noisy -facd away from the street though.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the houses at the back rether than the main road if you want a quiter night's...

We had a lovely weekend at Memphis EMB last weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is small, but very nice. The bedroom was good - very comfortable bed and super bathroom. All spotless. We will certainly return there again.
