Checked in on Sunday, June 03, 2012 we simply had a wonderful 4 night stay at Museum Suites. We booked the Mondriaan Suite, which is located on the 3rd floor of the building, at the very end of a quite typical steep dutch city-house's stair. We were rewarded by a stunning and bright room facing the garden between Willemsparkweg and Van Breestraat. The room impressed for cleanness, size, style, amenities provided and attention to details (such as artwork, furniture and books inspired to Mondriaan, the artist to whom the room is dedicated). Shortly: an extremely comfortable and very quiet room were we settled magnificently and slept wonderfully. You can get a feeling by looking at the photos attached to this review. The property is located in the elegant Amsterdam's Museum District, within walking distance to e.g. Van Gogh's Museum, Rijksmuseum and Concertgebouw music hall. Furthermore Willemsparkweg is on tram's nr. 2 line which connects you easily to the center of the town (Spui, Dam, Railway station). The district also features a nice variety of restaurants: among them we enjoyed in particular "Brasserie Kaizer", the chinese innovative "Chang-I" (both located near the Concertgebouw), as well as the stylish "Spring" which sits opposite to "Brasserie de Joffers" were we had our daily outdoor breakfasts). Frieda Manshande and her daughter Annemarie are charming hosts and assure their presence during the day running their business very smoothly. In their studio on the 1st floor they are available for informations, advice, booking, ticket pre-sale and specific needs.

We were glad, upon suggestion, to have bought an "I amsterdam" city card which comes in different timed-priced options (such as 24h, 48h and 72h), grants free, discount or priviledged, access to numerous attractions, museums, churches and includes a public transportation ticket valid for the same duration.
PS 2: When walking around Amsterdam pay attention to (stricly in the following order): bicycles, trams, taxis, cars as the latter tend to stop and yield while the formers won't...
