“Dated, But Great Location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights during our honeymoon!

Pros: (1) Amsterdam is small, so this hotel was walking distance to just about every tourist attraction. We made the walk to/from The Red Light District, Ann Frank House, and Heineken Factory. We even managed to squeeze in a river tour that wasn't too far of a walk from our hotel. (2) Night life in this area was great. There are a few restaurants and bars just on the other side of the river that was home to a late twenties/early thirties crowd - which was right up our alley. (3) Being 'on the river', the view from our hotel room was excellent! (4) Our room itself was very large and comfortable for the most part. (5) The front desk staff was helpful, and all personnel spoke English.

Cons: (1) The rooms are very dated (box TV's and all!), but if you don't plan on being indoors very much, this should not be an issue for you. (2) The breakfast buffet is not included in your room fee, and is very expensive.

Verdict:
Would I stay here again? Yes.
Would I recommend this place to a friend? Yes.

We came away from our stay at the NH Museum Quarter hotel with no real negatives. The hotel itself is a good standard for the money, it has a decent little gym that is very quiet. A buffet breakfast in the morning (till 11am I think) that was good. No hot buffet as such but some very good omelettes! The hotel is situated quite a bit out of the centre but this is not a problem as Amsterdam was not big, seemed safe, and trams are frequent and inexpensive. Also, plenty of places to eat/drink locally before strolling back to the hotel.

I loved this hotel - room 614 is the best! The hotel is a block or so away from the tram stop on Ruysdaelstraat just at Hobbemakade (tram 16 or 24 from Central Station). And is 2-3 blocks away from the Rijksmuesum, Van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk - as well as the "I Amsterdam" sign.

The hotel was modern enough and clean, but spring for the upgraded room and request 614 if you can - it has floor to ceiling windows along both external walls. Seriously, it is phenomenal. And that room is huge - not just by European standards, it is very spacious by US standards.

The front desk staff was mostly helpful, but I didn't love their restaurant recommendations as I thought they were a bit generic or geared towards other cuisines than Dutch. We went to La Falote and loved it (Roelof Hartstraat 26 IV)

There is also a grocery store at the Museumplein (far west edge), called Albert Heijn. It is just a small opening up top and the rest of the store is below ground, so it can be easy to miss, but it's very convenient if you want to pick up a few snacks or breakfast items.

Room Tip: 614 is a superior, corner room. Reserve that one if you can!

We stayed here with our family in four rooms for five days. We had special requests but the staff was very helpful. Very convenient for museum goers. The breakfast was lavish. Certainly a place to go back too.

The location is good, rooms are clean, I am just not a fan of NH Hotels, so the rest may be a tad negative. The Iron had no steam capabilities, no clock anywhere in the room, one thin towel, not two, just not the quality or quantity of a great hotel. One tiny bar of soap that lasts one, maybe two if you are lucky showers. Internet was dreadfully slow.

Booking ate, it was hard to find a good room at a decent price. The week-end extender rate allowing a Sunday check out at 5 pm gave us a whole extra day -- a great deal. I liked: the large room overlooking the canal (worth the 15 euro extra), the extensive breakfast buffet with good coffee, the underused gym and the location in a typical neighborhood away from the mob of tourists in the center. I would suggest: new carpets, new televisions and better internet service.

Room Tip: Higher floor overlooking the canal

This hotel is situated very close to the main museums of Amsterdam. My room was small and cramped with an aircondition system that has seen better days. The TV is from the 90's. Internet is free but very slow. Breakfast is OK but with 1 coffee machine for 50-60 guests coming in, it takes a while to wake up. Service is in general OK. The maid though walk straight into my room without asking if its OK (I was on the phone). The elevator sounded like it had skipped maintenance the last few years. The fitness center is OK, but only has 1 treadmill and no free weights. All in all it reminds me of a Scandic hotel which is not necessarily a compliment.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms towards the street and top floor as glass windows across the whole front = very warm whe...
