“Quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I stayed at the Muzeumzicht for 3 nights while in Amsterdam for a Muse gig( which was flaming amazing).

Firstly, the smell on the stairway is not rotten rats, it is the cats which are kept next door, it is definitely cats, I know that smell, the neighbour should change her cat litter more often or give her cats better conditions because happy cats don't usually produce that smell.

The hotel is a funny little place, I loved it personally, a typical steep-staired Amsterdam house, vintage furnishings, great position and view. Easy access to Schipol on the 197 bus which stops just outside and it is a very easy walk to the canals and city centre. Amsterdam is a beautiful, clean and friendly city and I adore it. My single room was comfortable, bedding and towels were spotlessly clean as were the shared bathroom and toilet. There was traffic noise but that is what you get staying in a busy central location, I expect a canal side hotel might be quieter but also MUCH more expensive. Nice fresh breakfast and pleasant staff also. For the location and price it perfect for the not overly fussy traveller for a few nights. No TV but that is no problem because Dutch TV is rubbish (sorry but it is) and it did me good to get away from the world for a few days... you don't go to Amsterdam to watch telly do you? If you want luxury, pay more but for me this hotel was just right.

The house is old with narrow stairs, but no problem to us. The hotel is old fashioned, and I think we had the only room with toilet and bath. Madress need to be changed. Breakfast ok, the man working in the hotel very kind and helpful. We stayed 5 nights. It is okay for two or three nights. No tv in rooms, but there is one in dinning room. Don´t know if it works.

A really nice place to stay. Warm and cosy. It had excellent transport links to the main centre and was very close to the best museums. I loved the simple, 'arty' decor. The breakfasts were good and the classical music played during breakfast summed the place up. An excellent, relaxing retreat.

Quite vintage and rather cheap hotel in the museum district. For fit travelers as the steps are pretty steep.
If I could ask for one improvement it would be that the management considers to serve breakfast before 0830 ;-)
