Hotel The Neighbour's Magnolia is more likely a 2 star hotel rated as 3*. The biggest advantage is it's location. Being located in a quiet place near large Vondel park, at a walking distance from the Museums square (Van Gogh, etc.), a lot of cafes in the vicinity of the hotel, it can be a good vantage point for both exploring the city and relaxing. You can take a tram that will get you to the city center in 10-15 min. You can also take a walk but be prepared to jump road pits and tranches, since there are roadworks all along the street that leads from the hotel to the Museums square. But the hotel itself.... You may not see the Vondel park and listen to birds in the morning (as was written in one of the reviews) just because there is another block of buildings separating the park from the hotel. You would hardly enjoy meagre breakfast especially when you know it's price. You will likely get disappointed with the room furnishings which looks as it were taken from dormitory rooms or derelict warehouse. After reading all these enthusiastic reviews, it was a shock for us to face with the reality. Indeed, the staff is very friendly but this does not make up for all the rest negatives.
