“Perfect for central Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Booked this hotel because of the reviews. The room was a bit minimalist but clean and functional.
The location is superb with the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gough museum just a short stroll from the hotel.
Parking is on street but costly or use the P+R at teh old Olympic Stadium just a few blocks away (tram ticket to and from the parking included in the €8.00 per day).

this 38 room hotel is a charming boutique hotel walking distance to museum square and many restaraunts. there is a lovely, freshly landscaped patio in back and some rooms open directly to patio. the front of the hotel is directly on the sidewalk, so may be too noisy for some, but we stayed in a front, downstairs room and slept just fine. They have no airconditioning, but open windows and fan kept us comfortable on a very warm evening. wine, soda are available at front desk, discount tickets to attractions are available. Receptionist made arrangements for an e-taxi ride to airport for us (cost 30 euros). All those who work there speak good english, and make you feel like a welcome guest in their home.

We spent three nights at this great hotel - fantastic staff, so helpful and friendly, who went out of their way to assist and give suggestions, e.g. local restaurants, tram tickets. Plenty of choice for breakfast and the courtyard is now finished for the enjoyment of guests. As mentioned by others, this hotel is right on the 197 bus route from the airport, so it is an easy and inexpensive trip. Excellent location for the special museums and/or a quick tram trip to the old town - just a couple of blocks to relaxing in Vondelpark. We also appreciated being able to move rooms as the front room was a little noisy with traffic and trams during the night - this was no problem. Thanks to everyone at Conscious Hotel Museum Square for making our stay in Amsterdam a memorable one!

My first impression of this hotel is location - superb. Just a short walk to reach museums and 2 main trams. Otherwise, it easy to look for some local restaurants, fruit...etc. Staff from this hotel is super friendly and welcoming always ask to help us something. Room square is reasonable and nice decor. I required a double bed, they put 2 single beds together made us uncomfortable with a sheet. Aircon did not work in my first day, it was fixed after 3 times helping from staff. The exchange rates of this hotel was really poor, much lower than bank rate. Generally, location and staff of this hotel gave us a pleasant stay for 4 nights but I couldn't give high appreciate for service.

Room Tip: Make sure your double bed is real double - not 2 beds pushed together. Gym is next door of this hote...

This is a very well located hotel. Near all the museums, easy access to trams to visit other parts of the city and with some lovely local restaurants nearby (en route to Vondel Park). We decided that the breakfast offered was too expensive,so we dined out every morning. I would definitely recommend the Le Pain Quotidienne for breakfast(only 5 minutes away from the hotel).

The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable - the beds are lovely.

There is also a bus stop outside the hotel where you can catch the 197 bus to the airport - cheap and handy!!

This hotel is perfectly placed to explore Amsterdam. We bought an IAmsterdam card which enabled us to travel throughout the city and gave 'free' and cheap entry into all of the major attractions, hotel close to all transport connections and bikes available. Breakfast was fine and a courtyard in process of being added to the breakfast area. Beds and room comfortable with all requirements. Air conditioner was not quite powerful enough on a hot summer's night and opening windows brought in too much traffic noise.

The rudest receptionist I've ever met. The first ting she did was to start an argument with us, if we had booked a room with space for our two children, which we had. It ruined our stay at this hotel. Good location, but bad beds and expensive breakfast.
