Would not recommend this hotel and will definitely not be visiting again. First of all, we had selected a room online to then get to the hotel with it being completely different. We asked about this at reception and their response was that they only show the best rooms on the website and it is never guaranteed that you will...

Pro's - LOCATIO - Nice location to the more classier Leidsplen area of Amsterdam via a lovely walk through the MusemPlein area of Amsterdam. Pro's...

Me and my friend stayed there 2014 so sorry for the late feedback :) But we had a great stay at the Alfred hotel! (before it was Memphis) It's close to the city so no trouble to take a short tram ride to the city center. They have a great service with really friendly staff. The rooms were clean and...

Had read mixed reviews about the hotel so unsure what to expect. Hotel staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Our room was big enough for the 3 of us, room was clean and tidy. Towels changed daily. Easy walking distance to the museum quarter and easy tram and bus access from near the hotel. Small Talk restaurant was lovely as...

We stayed for three nights in late December. The location of the hotel is great, it is a walking distance from the major museums and a short tram ride from the city center. The staff was very friendly and did their best to improve our stay. The room was large and had a nice view of the street. The bed...

My fiancee and I stayed here on two separate occasions during our trip this December. We stayed here our first night in Amsterdam and LOVED it. The staff was amazingly sweet and helpful. Our room was in the basement but was surprisingly nice! Obviously no view, but very quiet, clean, modern and quite large. Very comfy beds, shower was a...

Good position, near the museums and bus station. Rooms are too small, shower direct on the floor, so when you use it you spread water all over the bathroom. My friends, having a room next to mine, had no cleaning service the last day. Amsterdam is very expensive, so I don't think I would have paid what I paid for...

The staff helped us find our way around the city. The hotel is located within walking distance of the museums, the bus stop for the bus to take you to the train station and other places is just around the corner. There is also a very quaint small shopping/restaurant area about two blocks from the Alfred. The staff, including the...

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.
