Hotel De Munck
Ranked #251 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Basic hotel for budget travellers in Amsterdam but excellent choice. Very clean, we had a double with private facilities for 4 nights, they changed the towels 3 times whilst we were there. Breakfast was a good choice although a bit busy at peak times! The hotel is in a fantastic area, very chic neighbourhood with lovely shops, coffee houses (not shops!), restaurants etc. Only about 10-15 minutes walk into the centre of Amsterdam. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

This is my first time to write a review in Trip Advisor, and I must say Hotel de Munck did a good job in leading me to do so. I chose Hotel de Munck for its nice location, and while I saw some not-so-good reviews in Trip Advisor, I decided to take a chance and booked it for an overnight trip in Amsterdam. I must share that if you care at all about good and reliable service, you may want to consider looking at AirB&B, or other options around the area that may provide you with better accommodation at the same price. They booked me for two nights when I asked for one, and upon arrival, they refused to let me just pay for one. Arriving on the weekend of a marathon where all other accommodation were booked, I had to ask them if I could at least have a discount for the second night which I wasn't using, and while they agreed on a 50% discount, I still was left feeling gyped by people who won't own up to their mistakes, and are really just interested in making money. So if you don't have a good sense of humor, and just want a relaxing weekend, I suggest you to look elsewhere.

Room Tip: It's okay to stay a bit far, Amsterdam is quite well connected

If you are looking for a clean place to simply rest your head at nighttime and don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room, this hotel is a good option. It's reasonably close to the entertainment options in Central Amsterstam, i.e. a 10-15 minute walk to Dam Square and surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants. The biggest pro is definitely the location if you don't mind some healthy walking or biking to get around, which you'd have to do anyway. The customer service is good, the staff were nice and helpful. The free breakfast was much appreciated as well.

The condition of the room and the lobby area has room for improvement. When we walked into the rather shabby lobby which doubles as the eating area, there was an unpleasant smell and it was certainly not what we expected the lobby to look like. Our room was located in the building next to the lobby and there is a set of very steep and narrow stairs to climb to get into the building. The room itself was very basic and small, no frills at all, but that was to be expected. Reasonably clean except some mildew in the bathroom. It would have been nice if the TV worked better, it was all scrambled.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the lower floors during the hotter months because you will need to sleep with your wi...

This is a good hotel in a location that allows easy acess to trams and reasonable walk to many landmarks. It is not fancy but clean. The price was not cheap but probably good value in comparison to other options. The back patio should be cleaned up to provide an additional comfortable area for guests.

Room Tip: Negotiate a good price.

My wife and I chose Hotel de Munck because it was the only place in the city that had a room for us, and so we were slightly concerned about what we would get. Fortunately, it turned out to be an amazingly sweet, decent little place for the low rate. Service was friendly and cleanliness was excellent. The included breakfast was humble and basic but perfectly good. Free wifi was thankfully there and very handy (but not advertised on the website).

It is directly across the street from a small park, one of the only parks in the city. An excellent coffee shop (Two For Joy) next door, and a grocery store in the same block are great conveniences. The location within the city overall is great: still in central Amsterdam, just far enough from the centre to be a bit quieter, especially at night, but still extremely close to major attractions. When we saw other hotels we’d tried to book, we thought, “Phew, glad we didn’t end up there: too urban and noisy!”

We had some minor quibbles, but all things that are just part of staying in a cheaper hotel in the heart of Amsterdam: for instance, noise from guests coming and going on creaky and noisy old doors was a bit hard to sleep through at times. And the park across the street feels just a little dodgy for a timid tourist after dark, with some local youth often hanging out and talking noisily, particularly favouring a small area directly in front of the hotel: a minor concern, but a bit unfortunate. And the free wifi, although it was great to have anything at all, was quite unreliable in the rooms: too far from a single router in the lobby, I think.

Excellent location- a short tram ride from centraal station. If you're looking for a Cosy place away from the crowd (but not too far away) this is the place for you! It's quiet but too not quiet, busy but not too bustling.

Looked after our handluggage no problem whilst we waited a few hours for our room to be ready and on our last day before we flew home (nothing worse than having to lug round your rucksack everywhere!)

Owners welcoming but not intrusive, helpful and organised. Breakfasts-simple but just right.

All in all, perfect little place for people that can climb steep steps up to their room (completely normal for Amsterdam), who want to explore the city.

Go!!!

Found this hotel by chance, and so glad I did. Great location, in a typical Amsterdam street, very pretty. Just off Utrechtsestraat, which is a great little street with lovely restaurants, bars and shops, leading into Rembrandtplein. Conveniently located near Weesperplein metro station, and a number of trams. Friendly family run the place. It's basic, but perfect for being centrally located. Simple breakfast provided
