“Great room but stay somewhere else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

We upgraded to a superior room, and it was: huge, corner room with great view. Good location. Good amenities in the room: iron, ironing board, safe, refrigerator. Front desk staff could have been better, went on and on explaining room rates on check-in late at night. Internet access was bad. Free wireless in the lobby was painfully slow, and only free for 30 minutes, of which many minutes were consumed by signing on. Unsecure access in the room was faster, but overpriced. Room cleanup was a little sloppy. Overall, a great room but I wouldn't stay there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

We stayed 2 nights here at the end of our European holiday. We stayed at the ibis on the way in and then NH on the way out.... loved it! the location was perfect and we asked for a top floor canal facing room and they gave us a super room with an incredible view with big french-like windows (floor to ceiling), so the view was just amazing. tea and coffee in the room and they have thought of everything you might need - including a laundry room, gym, clothes line in the bathroom and you can ask for a fancy pillow as well to help you sleep better. the breakfast was 24 euro so we skipped it but there are so many cafes in amsterdam plus albert heijn grocery stores so you can always manage with food. walking distance to the Rijks museum and van gogh museum and rent a bike from mac bikes and then just ride around the city (watch out for the trams though)... dont bike too slow or the locals may horn at you.... would def stay here again especially since its a very pretty area.

The hotel is a bit bland but the room was very big and clean, the beds were comfortable and the balcony looking over the canal was a nice surprise. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Although it is quite a way from Dam Square, the tram stop (nos 16 & 24) is just around the corner and for 2.60 euro you can travel anywhere within the hour as long as you keep registering your ticket on and off the tram. Catch the same tram too and from the main railway station. The hotel is 5 min stroll to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum - order your entrance tickets online, otherwise you will queue for hours, same goes for the Anne Frank house.

Didn't have breakfast in the hotel but plenty of places to grab a coffee and croissant. In the evening, try the Monte Verde Italian restaurant just over the bridge. Don't be put off by the cheap prices - pizza, pasta, etc only 5 euro - the pizza, salad, tiramisu and Merlot were very good.

I booked this hotel after reading other comments regarding the hotel's close proximity into town when in reality its quite far from Amsterdam's central station and Dam Square. Be prepared to walk a long while or take a tram into town (rent a bike - there are several bike rental shops nearby). It is near the Van Gogh museum and the Rijksmuseum. The hotel itself is nothing special and appears dated. Its across the street from a nice canal and located in an upscale quite neighborhood. Its ideal for large tour groups (one group parked their rather large bus in front of the main entrance) that must smoke because the entire hotel reeks of cigarette smoke. The Continental Airlines crew spent the night here. The rooms are quite large and offer comfortable beds with a selection of different types of pillows (you call for the one that suits you). You'll also find a safe, iron/board, refrigerator, and a hot water pot with instant coffee/tea in the room. The TV did not work, the bathroom had several large strands of hair laying around, and they provide orange scented shampoo -- great shower. My sister in the room next to mine had a balcony which softened the the room's starkness. The entire hotel should offer free wifi throughout the hotel but only gives 30 minute of free wifi in the lobby. Breakfast not included and costs 19 Euros (not worth it - eat at Sara's Pancake House down the street from Ann Frank's House). Staff very friendly and helpful. Note: I didn't see the fitness center.

One of the best hotels I have stayed in recently (business or leisure). This one has spacious rooms good enough for you to jog inside in case you have to ;)

Nightlife in Amsterdam is great in few pockets, one of which hosting hard rock cafe etc. is close enough to walk to. Also the famous Von Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum and the I Amsterdam signage is at a walking distance.

Definitely a pleasing place with good connectivity and close to cultural hubs.

As a business hotel Museum Quarter is very adequate and just a little bit bland, although the breakfasts are quite good. It is not right next to a train station though and using the tram is not straightforward unless you have experience, so a taxi would be required. The spot itself is 5 min walk to Museumplein (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum) and 15 min to Leidseplein. Service was okay and amenities include a small gym so all in all a reasonable place to be away from home.

I stayed here 3 nights for my destination wedding in Amsterdam. The hotel provided us with a complimentary upgrade to a nice suite when they found out about our wedding. Their attention and service has been great - all the staff was very helpful.

Having lived in Amsterdam for 6 years before, I would definately recommend this hotel to any visitors looking for a fairly new hotel, close by the city and next to the museum area.
