This hotel was fairly priced, had a lift, good breakfast and very clean room. I liked this location, off the main street, but very handy to trams, walking areas and museums. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, as I was alone .

It's a good hotel in a very good location, next to interesting places in Amsterdam (Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, Hard Rock Cafe). The bedrooms are comfortable and clean. They have WiFi connection and a public computer if you don't have one. The breakfast was very nice & plentiful, in a nice dining room. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The Hotel it's next to a tram station, 20 minutes from the central station. It's next too a City Tour bus station.

Good, simple, clean hotel with a cosy lounge area and little garden for coffee, breakfast. Nice 'cared for' feel to the place. Well maintained. Very friendly helpful staff.

Bedroom was spotless with a comfortable bed. The bedroom decor wasn't anything special but didn't cause offence either.

Location is great. Quiet street , easy walk to museums and leidesplein square (with its bars and shops) and vondelpark for a stroll if u want some grass (the green type that cows eat!). Tram stops are close. Amsterdam is very easy to get around.

Breakfast started at 7.30 (an early start is a must if you want some quiet time at the museums before they get too busy). Simple (cheese, ham, eggs, cereals) but tasty enough, nice juice and coffee.

The nearby Rijksmuseum was brilliant. Van Gogh was good but very busy (August). It seems you can easily buy museum tickets in many Amsterdam shops - for the same price or slightly discounted. Those buying at the museums were stood in long lines!

A good hotel in a great location in Amsterdam. Free parking in the street & very close to the tram & only a short stroll (20 min ) walk into the heart of Amsterdam.
We found the room clean but very small & the towels were thread bare. Breakfast was plentiful and in a lovely dining room with a pleasant out look. All the staff were extremenly friendly & helpful.

For our first trip to Amsterdam, the Owl Hotel was the perfect place to stay. The rooms are charming, clean, and comfortable. The garden behind the hotel is beautiful, and the perfect place to sit with a drink or a cup of coffee. The staff members are welcoming and helpful. The location is within walking distance of museums, restaurants, and shops.

I chose this hotel because it is very close to the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum, just a few minutes walk away. I was also pleased to find The Hard Rock Cafe and many good restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is just around a corner from a main road, I felt safe, it is in a quiet area, very clean and the staff are very helpful. The breakfast was good, the bar quiet, the garden very pleasant.

I have been staying at this hotel since 1982 and I have just returned from what is at least my 7th stay at this hotel. It is simple and basic but I love it because it is small and personal and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I also like the location which is within easy reach of all the major attractions and yet it is in a quiet street. My only criticism would be the breakfasts - they do lack imagination but they are adequate. And if you are a cat lover then Disney is always willing to receive attention.
