“Good hotel, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2009

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at NH Museum Quarter. We booked the hotel through the NH Hotels website. Our 'deal' involved a king size room with canal view and included breakfast. I think we got a good package for what we paid. Our room was on the 7th (top) floor. It occupied a corner of the hotel above the hotel entrance. It, therefore, had a great view. The room had a significant amount of glass windows. We found that this amount of glass, plus the fact that Amsterdam was pretty cold during our stay - not a complaint because we were really pleased not to have rain during our four days, meant it was difficult to get the room to a reasonable temperature. We did find it cold in the room at times.

We were surprised, given the size of the room, at the lack of space for hanging and storing our clothes. Most of our clothes stayed in our suitcases as there was nowhere to put them. Had we been visiting at a warmer time of the year, i.e. less clothes taken with us, and for only one or two nights, the storage space would have been fine. Last negative comment: the lighting in the room could have been better.

Now for the positives:

All the staff in the reception and breakfast areas of the hotel were great, friendly and helpful at all times. The buffet breakfast was very good. It offered a good choice of hot and cold food and drink and was taken in a very nice dining room. We needed to leave the hotel early on our last day, before the buffet breakfast service commenced. We were very pleased that we were able to take an early room service breakfast at no extra cost.

The hotel is very clean and modern. We were very pleased with its location. We would not have wanted to have been in the busier centre of Amsterdam, and found the museum area to be just right. We could walk to the centre easily when we wanted to and found some very good restaurants close to the hotel. We were particulary pleased with Brasserie Bark and De Knijp, only 10 minutes walk away on Van Baerlestraat.

When we arrived at Schiphol we took the Connexxion shuttle to the hotel. We also used this for our return journey. This is an excellent value means of travelling between hotel and airport in Amsterdam.

On the whole we enjoyed staying at this hotel and think that it was a good choice. We would certainly stay at the hotel again if we return to Amsterdam.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2008

This hotel is usually our first choice when staying in Amsterdam after going to a concert at the "Concertgebouw". The hotel is about a 10 minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. There is also a tram stop nearby (5 minutes by foot). Near the Leidseplein, approximately a 15 minutes walk from the hotel, are numerous restaurants. Check-in and check-out at the hotel is quick and businesslike. You can upgrade to a canal view room, but we have always been fortunate enough to have a canal view room without having to pay an additional fee. Rooms are quite large, especially compared to other Amsterdam hotels in the same price range. Rooms have coffee and tea making facilities, a small fridge (empty), an iron and ironing board, a small safe and a bathtub. On each floor there is an ice machine. If you arrive or leave early you can leave your luggage in a locked room near the lobby. We will definitely stay at this hotel again during future visits to Amsterdam. Great value for money!

Spent two nights in November 2008.

Everything was straight forward and efficient with this hotel. Nothing spectacular but everything you would expect from a chain hotel. Liken it to a Travelodge in the UK - clean, good basic level of service.

Location was good, just south of the Rijksmuseum and close to the excellent tram service - lines 16 and 24.

If you are looking for a simple, no-fuss hotel I'd definitely recommend this particular NH Hotel.

This is by far one of my favorite hotels my company uses!
The location is pretty good, near of the most important Amsterdam's museums and the town city center.
The staff is friendly and the whole hotel very cousy!

very nice hotel ,modern rooms, exellent service, very good breakfast,internet available but very expensive - (22 Euro per day)
10 min walk to museums- a bit far from center (dam) about 35 min walk or 15 min by tram - thats the only major disadvantage.

Had a room on the first floor facing the street and canal. A window opened to allow some fresh air in. Rooms are large and comfortable. A choice of bed pillows is offered. Bathroom was big and clean, but couldn't get the drain stopper to come up in the sink, so had to take it out altogether . Good location in the Museum Quarter, 1 block from the Rijksmuseum. Walking distance to Leidesplein, and also the Paridiso Theatre. Take a Tram from Central Station - aprx 20 minutes.

This is an OK Hotel for the price we paid, I think we got one of the penthouse rooms facing the canal which was an added touch, no real complaints so to speak except I it was a little out the way although not the greatest walk into the center (Dam Squ), no problems with staff as mentioned in previous reviews, pretty much a middle of the road hotel clean and probably a little smarter than some other hotels in its grade.

Amsterdam is a pretty fun city to visit and has plenty on offer from museums to nightlife, skip the breakfast and eat out plenty of places around thats if you can get up after a late night out.
