The Neighbour's Magnolia was the ideal place for us in Amsterdam. Situated well out of the "Disneyland" part of central Amsterdam, the hotel is in a very nice, quiet, somewhat swanky neighbourhood. It's a short walk to the Van Gogh museum, etc., and the tram stop is almost right outside the front door, which allows you to venture in and out from the centre as you please. The hotel itself has some very nice, original ideas. First and foremost: extremely friendly and helpful staff! A great common room area with an honour system on snacks, etc. And your own plush toy teddy bear that you may purchase to take home with you, if that's your bag. We had a basement level room which was very comfortable and well appointed, and it also opened onto a private little courtyard. Great spread for breakfast, too. In sum, highly recommended.
