I stayed at this Hotel when I visited Amsterdam for a medical conference. Was sharing the room with my Colleague. I love the cleanliness and the toilets. The bed is soft and comfortable. Good for Bushiness trips. Tram service is just opposite the hotel. The only disadvantage of this hotel is away from tourist attraction but not to bad 15...

1 of the best hotels I have stayed in and for the price its fantastic. The hotel is within walking distance of all the sights in the city but for the lazy people like myself there is a tram stop outside the hotel which goes everywhere in the city. The food is excellent and the service we found to be...

This was an ideal hotel for a weekend break. We had a very spacious triple room and good sized twin room. We wondered when we booked if it was a bit away from the centre but in fact it was an easy stroll to the museum area and the Vondel Park is only 5 minutes away. Breakfast was good and...

The Hotel was in a great location. You can quickly get to many major sights: Vondelpark, Rembrandt and Van Gogh museums. The overall standard of the hotel is satisfactory and the staff is helpful. The hotel is close to Albert Heijn store where you can buy something to snack.

We spent 5 nights in Amsterdam over the New Year period. The hotel was in a very good location away from the centre of the city, easily accessible by No. 16 tram from the Central Station or tram stops in the city centre. It wasn't too far to walk into the city either, which was sometimes as quick as taking...

We were in Amsterdam from Old Years Eve and this obviously caused some service problems. Nevertheless, we were not that impressed. Rooms we had were on the top (5th) floor and this meant we were effectively in the attic. This, in turn, meant we had to climb onto the bed in order to see out the windows. Probably would have...

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.
