Reviewed August 21, 2012

It's easy to reach the hotel either from Amsterdam Central Station or directly from Schiphol (with Connexxion bus line - to Museumplein station).
Small cozy hotel, in a quite neighbourhood, very close to Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum, close to the tram station, with direct line to teh Center and Central Station. Other attractions are close and very accessible.
The rooms are comfortable and the hotel staff are very kind.
Breakfast is generous and tasty.

Room Tip: If possible, chose a room at first floor, otherwise it's more difficult to carry your luggage on...

Very pleasant hotel with extremely helpful staff. We had superior double room with balcony and it was comfortable and spaccious. Breakfast was very good though if you like a cooked breakfast this is not the place to go. Very well located for access to centre by tram, stops are only around the corner. Very quiet neighbourhood and nearby is a very satisfactory shopping area which is more comfortable for shopping than the city centre. Not luxurious but very comfortable and good value for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior double room as some of the other rooms seemed a bit small. also ask for first flo...

Hotel Washington is a nice place to stay. It's small and intimate.
A fair service in relationship to the its price.
If you look for something clean, not too expensive without too much luxury, this is a good place to go.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location, close to the museumplein. The hotel doesn't have elevators, so if you have bulky luggage, be prepared to suffer. Wi-fi connection is another bad thing, most of the time didn't work, the cleaning service was not good enough, and the hair dryer was not working. Despite my complaining nothing was done to solve the problems. It really didn't worth the money I've payed.

Provides what is promised. Cosy and very quiet neighborhood right next to the van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Convenient connections to the city by tram or by walking. Helpful staff. Better cleaning above floor level would be nice and new carpets, but linen and bathrooms were maintained very well. 4% extra charged for credit card payment was unusual and a bit cheap. Remote parking worked well. The hotel itself is quite loud so noise from other rooms and stairs woke us up at times - I would avoid lower level rooms and honeymoon plans

This hotel is in the Museum district, a quiet old residential neighborhood close to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, and Vondelpark. It's on a lovely tree lined street and in a classic 5 story old house. We had room number 3 which is on the first floor, has its own bathroom, and best of all, has a lovely long balcony overlooking the street. The room is cozy, nicely decorated and has a desk and sitting table with chairs. Wi-fi is available but for an extra charge. It worked well though. The breakfast was included and it was eggs to order (scrambled or fried), and a great selection of breads and rolls, cheese and meats, cereals, juices and fruit. Our room was spotlessly clean and our bathroom was obviously newly renovated. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Note: from Schipol airport you can take a train to Amsterdam's Centraal Station. From the front of the Centraal Station you can catch Tram # 5 to the Concertgebouw stop ( just after the Rijksmuseum), from which it is only a couple of blocks to walk to the hotel!

Room Tip: Room 3 has a lovely balcony and is only one flight of stairs up. The stairs are STEEP!

You get what you pay for, and for what we paid for... TOTALLY EXCELLENT! The room (superior) was clean, spacious and very welcoming (more than what we imagined). En-suite facilities were excellent, with TV and balcony (we were in room 8, great for smokers) and you can hear the birds sing every morning too. Breakfast was more than you need to set you up for a day in Amsterdam (cold meat, cheese, eggs, breads of all varieties, juice, yoghurt, smoothies, cakes and cereals galore). Hotel is in a great position for a quiet yet close stay to the action of the city centre (tram was outside and 8-10 mins away from Centraal with trams running every 5-6 mins No. 5, 16 and 24) . All in all if you want a cosy, clean, convenient and all round lovely hotel in Amsterdam we couldn't recommend this hotel more. Been to Amsterdam a few times and this is the best we have stayed at by far. A typical Dutch building, don't be put off by all you read about the stairs.... this is a traditional Dutch building... there are stairs! For us this was 5 out of 5! (btw check out Cafe Loetje {Look it up} for the best kept secret in Amsterdam just 30 seconds away... REALLY the best steak you will ever have!)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if you are a smoker
