This little hotel is amazing. the staff is very friendly and welcoming, they have a great sense of hospitality and professionalism. The room was bigger than expected, very clean and organized, had all the amenities required for a pleasant stay. The shower was perfect, they had both hot and cold water which is not always the case in other hotels.... More

I was stranded in Amsterdam for a night and got the last room in the hotel, a single bed with a separate (but still private) bathroom down the hall. The price was good and everything was clean and modern. They have a very nice breakfast and garden to eat it in. The staff were so helpful with everything I needed,... More

The few positive aspects: the position in the city and the human quality of all the receptionists. Otherwise, the hotel is far more expensive than a 3 (real) star hotel on the French Riviera, does not offer any conditions of a 3 star hotel, with modern standards. The walls are too thin, so you know exactly what neighbors talk about... More

Amsterdam seems to be priced a little like London, based on my experience. You get very little for your money. We paid €250 for two nights in mid July. The room was very small and had a single bed. The bathroom was small, but clean and modern, with a great wet-room shower. You'd probably have to spend at least €150... More

The staff and owners of this hotel made us feel very welcome and were very accommodating. It is on a quiet street very close to the major museums, 5 minutes (2 blocks walk) to #16 tram connecting to the railway station and center of town. Breakfast was superior. Fresh fruit, cheese’s, sliced meats, yogurts, a variety of breads, cereals, and... More

we had an excellent stay in Hotel Asterisk! first of all, this hotel accepts a "standard" booking, sending a detailed mail to the hotel with your complete coordinates, this makes you liaise directly with the hotel, which is more "human" than booking websites. We paid 110€/night (from 30 may to 3rd june) for the small double room, a good price... More
