I booked this hotel with last minute under the name 'The Alfred Hotel' which my friend said had good reviews, when I tried searching for reviews after booking I couldn't find any and soon found that the 'Alfred Hotel' was actually Memphis Hotel which would have been very confusing for someone who had not done their research as no one...

Came here for a short break and knew the hotel was still undergoing an upgrade. Seems to be changing its name to The Alfred and rebranding. The location is good and just a short walk to the museums. The area is quite upmarket and the surrounding shops and restaurants are limited and expensive so a walk towards the old town... More

we have had a nice stay here, BUT this is definitively not a 4* hotel.. the rooms are fusty and the carpet is too old. room service isn't available so breakfast isn't as well. furthermore there is no mini bar in the room available nor a refrigerator.. beds are smooth and convenient. they do have international tv. it's in a...

It's a nice place to crash. Decent rates, comfortable, if cozy, rooms, and a nice location. It's walking/tram distance to all of the major attractions in Amsterdam. It's a great base for your Amsterdam adventures.

I saw alot of recent negative reviews and that made me skeptical about the hotel and its four star rating. I have seen though that the hotel is the exact opposite. The construction was going on but it wasn't as bad as made out to be. Also the room was very clean and comfortable and we ordered a triple and... More

The Memphis hotel in Amsterdam is still being refurbished and is now making itself The Alfred. I found the staff helpful but the description of the hotel is nowhere near accurate. There is no breakfast room so how they can issue you with a key card that reads there is, is just fibbing. There is the most pathetic excuse for... More

Incredibly comfortable bed. They only do Room Only, but there are many cafes and restaurants nearby that do breakfasts as well as lunches and suppers. There is also a supermarket about 3mins walk away. The park nearby is beautiful and well worth a wander. Bikes are for rent outside the restaurant. Walking into Amsterdam centre is very doable, about 20mins...I... More

First thing's first - this is, by no stretch of the imagination, a four-star hotel as claimed; at best, it is a three (perhaps lower if you take into account the current construction work). Unfortunately, the images displayed are not representative of the actual rooms - at least not the one I was in, which was not 'spacious' as promised,... More

I stayed at this Hotel July 4/July 7 2016. Just checked out this morning. I arrived around 300pm, the check in time on the 4th, and had to wait which was fine but then was given by the manager to a person in training. She was sweet but everything had to go through him and he was busy with others.... More

Carpet wasn't vacuumed when we arrived and wasn't vacuumed for the whole week we stayed. TV set broken for the whole week. Took them three days to fix the safe. Dirty spoons under the desk, weren't removed. Staff is unhelpful and even notes complaints as 'resolved' in their computer even though they didn't do anything. Also the room doesn't have... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
