“Don't book for romantic getaway”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We booked a double room to celebrate finding out we were expecting out first baby. I booked a double but have been given a twin. Asked to change rooms but was refused as we'd used the room for just over an hour (hadn't really clocked it was a twin til after showering.. We've been up since 3). So as compromise asked for double duvet.. They said they hadn't got one.. Asked if any doubles available tomorrow and was told we'd have to check in the morning, and depends if available... Surely he could have checked reservations. The room itself is clean and nice enough but no kettle or tea and coffee in rooms. Have to get from reception for £1.50. Seriously unimpressed and a bit upset by the way staff have not offered us any resolution.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights in November having chosen it because of reviews, location and price and we were not disappointed. We arrived off an early flight at 10.30 a.m. and to our surprise found we could go straight to our room. The room was small but contained everything we needed, desk, 2 chairs, wardrobe with enough hangers for both of us. I thought the bed would be too soft when I sat on it, but stretched out and it was oh sooo comfortable! The shower was good too, powerful and plenty of hot water. Free wifi worked fine. Only downside was no hot drink facility in room and thought the breakfast was on the expensive side but the coffee was good! And all the staff we spoke to including the housekeeper were really friendly and helpful.

This little hotel is perfectly located for visiting the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum and is a short bus ride away from the airport. It is within walking distance of the centre. We are in our 60s and I have a dodgy knee but we managed fine walking everywhere from here. Found some nice restaurants nearby too.

If I wanted to be near the museums on a future trip would definitely stay here again.

A small and clean hotel with a very helpful and friendly reception. My room has been upgraded for the entire stay due to lack of free rooms! Basic fresh breakfast but not included in the room rate. Downside is a bit out of central Amsterdam and the taxi drivers were ripping us of with a different tariff every time anywhere between 16 and 22 euros each way back and forth to central Amsterdam.

Stayed here for a long weekend, and despite having a great time in the city, this hotel was a little disappointing. We were upgraded to a spacious room with a nice view toward the south, but the standard overall, including the bathroom, feels faded, several years old, and the service ranged from mildly indifferent to outright rude (the breakfast guy must dislike his job). The breakfast was good but basic. The organic touch and general eco concept is nice, but this hotel is far from boutique or stylish - rather a decent value city hotel in a convenient location for Museumkwartier.

Room Tip: Ask to face south / backyard on upper floors (3-4) for a nice view.

We chose to stay in Conscious hotel next to the Museum square as it was centrally located to most of the attractions, a single bus journey from the airport, a single tram journey from Amsterdam RAI exhibition centre( yes I went for work) and a walking distance from Leidsplein. To tell the truth i was a little sceptical about a eco hotel, but these people were really good. The rooms were larger than most other properties i have stayed in europe for the same fare. Clean and crisp. And the best part was the women at the reception as they were always ready to help us out with anything we wanted. Always ready with suggestion on the restaurants , drinking holes, what to avoid,They had kept stock of the tram tickets, day passes,maps, etc. We could even rent a bicycle from there.

We were looking for a cheapish hotel close to Museumplein and couldn't have chosen better! We had a third-floor room at the back of the building which was large, quiet (apart from a few lift noises as we were almost next door to it), and the twin beds were amazingly comfortable - the best I've ever slept in. Very easy access to Schipol on the 197 bus, and plenty of trams nearby (nos 5 & 16 go to/from Central Station) though Amsterdam is a small city and everything we wanted to do was easily walkable (though all the bikes make this a bit hazardous!). We liked all the green credentials, and the staff were friendly and knowledgable about transport, sights, and local restaurants. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel and took a travel kettle so we could make hot drinks in our room (but you can buy coffee from a machine in the breakfast room for €1.50). The courtyard garden must be lovely in summer. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms at back are quiet - those at the front might be a bit noisier.
