“The Orange Carpet Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

I agree with the reviews that the NH Museum Quarter is in a lovely place and is moderately priced. It is very close to the Museum Quarter, to the Heineken Experience, the Albert Cuyp Market, and the Leidesplein.

I got a third floor standard room facing the canal. The room was very large, but seemed very dated. One thing that really made an impression was the weird 70s-era orange carpet that seemed as old as it looked. It was clean, but made the room feel very dated.

There was a refrigerator in the room, a safe, lots of closet space, and a nice bathroom. The toiletries weren't the greatest, they only provide soap and shampoo (bring your own conditioner).

There is free wi-fi in the lobby, but only for thirty minutes at a time and you need to ask the desk staff for a login and password.

Front desk staff wasn't particularly helpful when I asked about the trolley system, but I was able to

Room Tip: The canal view is nice and not too noisy even when you leave the window open.

We booked early after checking tripadvisor ratings and prices, there are some great deals to be had but they're prepaid so can't be canceled. I'd recommendgoing for the superior rooms for the greater size and better views.

Anyway, upon arriving the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and had allocated us a corner room on the canal side. This room was amazing: as a corner room it was much bigger than a side room and had floor to ceiling windows, a large bed, desk, table and chairs and functional bathroom. A fridge is included for your own use (helpful as the supermarket is not that far away), as is an iron and ironing board, safe and bathrobe/slippers set. Totally recommend asking for room 614.

The service here is everything you could want: very helpful, courteous and friendly (except for one slightly grumpy woman on the Saturday).

On previous tripadvisor advice we didn't sign up for the expensive breakfast. We did try the slightly expensive room wifi: €10.70 for 24 hours: I think the 6th floor is really at the extreme range of the wifi and often forgets you are logged on do probably not worth it, however there is an ethernet cable on the desk if your running a laptop.

Locationwise the hotel is very close to the museumplein (museum square) and just down the road from the southernmost canal boat tour stop (behind the rijksmeum). However the city centre is about 25-30 minutes walk away so I'd suggest getting a tram card (like an oystercard) that we found difficult to locate an outlet for. Foodwise the supermarket is on the museumplein and there are plenty of expensive pretentious restaurants not far away but I'd stick to Mont Verde (friendly Italian round the corner) and restaurants in town.

NH Museum Quarter Hotel was an excellent place to spend a weekend in Amstersdam. This moderately priced hotel is situated within a short walking distance to many cultural centers like the Rijksmuseum and the Concertgebouw. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, even securing our luggage until check in time, allowing us an early chance to experience the city. The room was exactly as expected for the cost, not a lot of fluff, but roomy, quiet, and clean with large, in-room bath.

The hotel is very nice, the staff are all courteous.

The rooms are clean and are a nice size for a european hotel.

The location is fantastic, walking distance to vondel park, musuems and the chabad center!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are quieter

This is a clean and pleasant hotel in a quiet section of Amsterdam, a few blocks from the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and, a couple blocks after that, one of the major pedestrian streets.

When I checked in, I was worried that this was going to be another of those trendy hotels for Beautiful Young People that sacrifices convenience for hipness. Nope. While it feels young, and the design is quite modern, my room was quite comfortable. It's not large by American standards, but it's also certainly not cramped, and not nearly as small as European rooms can be. Full length windows that slide open. Comfortable bed. Mediocre tube TV. Refrigerator. iron and ironing board standard in the room. Excellent full breakfast buffet - the croissants were perfection.

The free wifi in the lobby is (I believe) only granted per half hour. The mediocre wifi in the rooms is run by Swisscom, which charges 10 euros per 24 hours. But be sure to ask for the wifi from the registration desk, or else Swisscom will charge you 18euros for 24 hours.

Nice location away from the center of AMS....but very easy to walk to. Everything is very walkable. Upscale shopping 2-3 blocks away and museums within 2 blocks. This is not a 4 or 5 star hotel but the location is good if you want to be away from the craziness. I would recommend for an easy, laid back stay.......staff is very friendly. :)

Room Tip: Stay on the canal side if possible.

Great location and nice room. Our superior had a canal view. No significant traffic noise. Nice front office staff. Don't pay for breakfast. There is a fantastic bakery three blocks away. One block down to the bridge, and two blocks over on the left. Yum. There is also a great "farmer's market" one block further. Would certainly stay here again.
