“Lovely and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We spent 3 nights here, hotel staff are very helpful, comfy big beds, nice rooms.
Located in a residential area but easy to get around by tram and a three day travel pass is only €16:50!
Had a fab time for a special birthday, ideal place to stay for a group of girls, in a safe area.

Hello,

my girlfriend and I booked the Hotel NH Musica in Amsteradm - 4 Star hotel for 4 nights.

We both travelled from Canada to Amsterdam, we had 4 big suitcases and two big backpacks with us. No one from the hotel helped us carrying the suitcases, the customer service front desk just looked at as as if we are from another planet.
The front desk people are the unfriendliest people ever, they are not saying hello or goodbye and if you have a question about their slow internet they get offended and upset with you.

The hotel was nice but the staff is terrible. I will never book a stay with NH Musica Hotels again.

Be aware, price seems ok for a 4 star hotel, but if you just 30 years old (as my girlfriend and i am) and you are not wearing a business suit all day long then you are totally fail on this place.
They dont like poeple which are dressed normally, just business suits.... this is really redicolouse!!

I have never given a Hotel a bad review before but I simply have to with this one, Ive just come back to my own bed thank god. The service was terrible, Its about half an hour on a crowded stuffy tram away from the center, which it costs like 12 euro's. the mini bar in the hotel is horrendously overpriced 3.50 for 75ml of orange juice and the prices are hidden in the top shelf away from sight, the "room service" consists of an extra hidden cost of 5 euros on top of whatever you order per item which is hillarious as you can only order a small amount of the menu at night time. the rooms look impressive however when you settle in you will realise that the "double beds" are actually single beds pushed together with NOTHING holding them together so you just fall through the middle all the time. the toilet made me howl with laughter. its located behind the bathroom door which means that you have to squeeze past the shower in order to use it, If i was a larger gentleman it would have been impossible. I will never come here again i would have had a better stay at a travellodge - not even an exaduration.

I stayed almost a week here and I was extremely pleased with everything. The breakfast was superb and the staff was super friendly. I had a room on one of the top floors and had a spectacular view! The room was big and clean and felt very luxurious (at least when you're a student!). They have massage chairs in the basement, which I used almost every day. After a long day of walking around in Amsterdam, it was wonderful to relax in one of those chairs! The beds are really comfortable, so we slept great every night.

The only thing I wish was different was the distance to the city centre. It's a good 20-minute tram ride to the centre. I enjoy train- and tram rides, but it would have been nice to be a little closer.

Thanks for a lovely stay :)

Amazing hotel. Absolutely beautiful, from the lobby to the rooms. Bathroom was fantastic had a great big bath and a shower. Very modern and fresh. Great prices. Would stay here again 100% lovely staff and the surroundings are cute. House keeping also do a good job and if you need anything they bring it right up. Tram 5 minute walk, takes about 20min to get into central Amsterdam. Great!!!!

I had several days and two night in this hotel due to a training in december and january 2013/2014. Sleeping in a room is not nice: there is no good control of the air condiotioning so I had dry eyes and nose after a night stay. The matrass is poor: hard en not flat. I was glad to go home after one night stay.

The food is simple in breakfast and lunch. I had two diners. The first was terrible. Carpaccio of beef with a little bit of salmon from the other choice of starters. Plates were not clean and full of fingerprints. And desert was sent back to the kitchen: response of the waiter: I had no complaints this evening and the cook likes it.........

The second diner in january was better, but I can not advice you to eat in the hotel. The hotel is situated outside city center and public transport is not nearby (walk of 1500 meters).

Just returned from a 3 night stay at NH Musica which I booked via Priceline.

I’ve read a similar review regarding the location, I booked what was the Vondlepark and surrounding areas on this website and it came up with this which I was initially worried about after reading some of the reviews. I must say the location is not perfect , but it wasn’t a problem for us. The area is a quiet residential area and a simple enough walk to the tram and metro, it really wasn’t an issue for us and we did this late at night. The location means that you also go through plenty of great areas of the city on the way into town and for us we used this to explore areas we might not have done if we’d been located more centrally.

The hotel was very clean, the staff polite and I didn’t eat at the hotel so can’t comment on the food. If like us you don’t have breakfast included there is a nice Dutch bakery en route to the station as well as a good Colombian eatery so you have a couple of options.

So if you do book this hotel via a 3rd party website don’t worry about the location, it’s actually quicker to get here from the airport as well.

About the location of our hotel, we are indeed not located in the city centre but in the heart of Amsterdam's 'Zuidas’ business district. Like you already have mentioned, it is a simple seven-minute walk to the tram/metro stop. We are looking forward welcoming you again at NH Musica.
