Wonderful hotel, superb bedrooms in a super quiet location but only walking distance all attractions. Modern facilities but tastefully done. Lovely piano bar & mini terrace to drink evening cocktails. Would definitely stay hear again.

After my arrival the friendly staff was very helpful in re-arranging my room. The hotel is well known for its outside terrace, bar and boutique interior, and mostly run by students. However the rooms on the top floor are very cramped and with stairs inside; no space for big suitcases, and a bathroom for midgets (see photo). So be aware... More

Had drinks here with a local friend that lives in the neighborhood and was so impressed. We only had drinks, no food or hotel stay, but the services are run by students of the college learning the field of hospitality management. The prices therefore also reflect that (ie. cheaper). The courtyard where we had drinks is very pretty and quaint,... More

Used frequently for lunch by our family who live in Amsterdam, so we were warmly welcomed by the manager when we arrived.

A very elegant hotel with topnotch service. Dining was excellent with well-chosen menu. The breakfast buffet was well done and fresh items added promptly. Coffee was great. We witnessed the preparations for an all-day wedding that were amazing and well-planned by staff. Smooth! There were also meetings and other parties going on. None of these things disturbed the hotel guests.... More

This is a good hotel. Some might find the décor a bit old fashioned, but we would call it more traditional. We were looking for a place within walking distance of the museums and the canals, reasonably priced, with chain hotel amenities - like wifi, bar and restaurant - but without the chain hotel sameness of style. The rooms were... More

We've stayed in the College Hotel on 3 visits to Amsterdam and we've not been disappointed. Great location, great rooms - it's very convenient that the hotel can provide you with bikes (at a reasonable hotel rate). It's a training hotel so sometimes the service is a bit slow but otherwise I can't fault it.

Location and concept are very nice. We discovered some (little) flaws... one of my colleagues had a room where rain was leaking in. Nice and friendly service by young professionals. Snack menu is very basic. Had the impression that rooms on the top floor are less qualitative.

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.
