“Avarage hotel, good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I stayed four nights in the hotel with two friends, we had a five days holiday in Amsterdam. Honestly, don't expect too much, this is a very avarage hotel. The room was OK, clean and big enough for three persons.The room looked to the courtyard, so it was very quiet. The furniture was a bit old fashioned, the bathroom small but clean. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. The big advantage of this hotel was the price and the great location: the museum area is in a walking distance and tram 16 stop is close by, easy to go to the centre or to the Central Station. As we were only sleeping in the hotel and spent the day in the city (having great breakfast at Cafe Het Concertgebouw), it was a perfect option and we had an enjoyable stay.

The hotel by itself is ok. Front desk and lobby are fine. The disappointment come from the room. very basic small room, with a small bed, no attempt for any kind of decoration. Bathroom one side, toilet the other. Bathroom had a bath but way too small for any kind of relaxing time and left over of a sticky plastic rug at the bottom. Even the toilet paper was cheap. Room was clean however, window was opening on the road with the tram. Good location for direct access to the center with Tram 16 and Museumplat. Ok if you expect no more than a clean room to sleep in.

Stayed here while attending a trade show. Close to the museum area and Vondelpark. Several high quality restaurants in the area and close to a tram that goes into the city center. If you prefer to be closer to the action and nightlife, this is not the place. However, the surrounding area is great to wander around and the rooms are clean and nice. The front desk staff were always helpful. Overall it was an enjoyable stay!

I'm lucky to have stayed in lots of different hotels in Amsterdam , and none of them being free last week, my client booked me into the Memphis.

Arriving very late, after midnight, due to flight delays at Gatwick, I still get a very nice room. Very spacious, good bed, good strong Wi-Fi signal. The hotel looks clean, and a few paint chips in the corridor don't detract from the feel that it's nice and luxurious. Nice check in.

Good night's sleep. Breakfast is chaos. The breakfast area doesn't look big enough to cater for a full hotel, and it's a scramble for tables. Holland is not a country to visit if you like breakfast as a meal.

I'd certainly say at The Memphis again, but think I'd pop across the road to Let Spain Quotidian cafe for breakfast.

We really enjoyed our four night stay in this comfortable Hotel. Very helpful staff including re booking visits etc, really good breakfast, well appointed room in a good position on a tram route and just a few minutes walk to the Museums. There are some really good restaurants nearby and we had one good meal in the restaurant at the Hotel (under separate management)

Our 2 night stay here was part of a Groupon. The location was good - quite neighborhood which felt safe. 10 minute walk to Van Gogh museum and Rijks museum. About 45 minutes walking to the central station.
The hotel says 4 star - maybe 4 out of 8 possible? Tiny room, tiny bed, no AC, loud as hell, and a very cheery woman yelling, "housekeeping" at 9 am and knocking on our door. Plus we heard her yelling and knocking on the other 10 doors on our floor.
The front desk people were very helpful. Breakfast was good except for some super annoying other guests who let their baby scream while they texted and showed each other photos.
Overall, we spent little on the vacation, so it was ok, but I will not be returning there.

The location is good, in a quiet attractive area, with easy access by public transport to the city centre. It does not however, provide a 4 star experience. The bedroom needed refurbishment. The mattresses were well past their sell by date. The staff were unable to provide me with a proper non-allergenic pillow, important as I am asthmatic. The room was too hot and at one point there was a smell of bad drains. The choice at breakfast is easily surpassed by that on offer in many Scottish 3 star establishments. While the room itself was spacious, the bathroom was very cramped and the grout on the tiling was overdue for a good clean.
