“Nice place but watch the steps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

The location was wonderful. The staff was great and the room fine. The only drawback is the entrance. To get into the hotel, there is a flight of steep steps. When you are dragging luggage, this could be a problem, especially if the luggage is heavy or you are frail.

On the whole, good value for the money. The staff was wonderful, the location magnificent, and a good place to stay after a long flight.

Stayed here for two nights this April, hotel is based in Museum area, which is a beautiful area to be located in, there are many places to visit near to the hotel, it is easy to get to hotel from central station, catch tram 2 or 3 and get off at Hobbemastraat and you are literally 50 odd yards away. Staff at hotel were very helpful and cheerful, we arrived early and was able to leave our bags at the hotel whilst our room was prepared, rooms were clean and ideal for what we wanted which was pretty much a place to put our heads down, breakfast was your typical continental, would I stay here again, yes most definitely.

I stayed here for three nights while attending a conference. For the amount I paid I found the hotel offered poor value for money compared with another hotel where I stayed for one night, which was almost half the price and much more comfortable.

The Poet hotel was shabby throughout, the breakfast was poor and the shower was almost impossible to direct. The single room was very difficult to move around in because it was so narrow. The single bed was also exceptionally narrow and sagged in the middle. I slept poorly throughout my stay. I don't know why this hotel attracts such good reviews. The only positive thing I can say is that it is very close to the museums, tram stops ad restaurants, and in a nice neighbourhood.

Room Tip: Spend extra money on a larger room; single rooms are exceptionally cramped and uncomfortable.

We stayed as a family of 4 (with two children aged 11 and 9) in August 2012 for 2 nights. Our room was large, very clean, and modern. Double bed and two single sofa beds for the children - all very comfortable. Modern excellent bathroom. Breakfast was good. Location was great, easy to get a tram from there or walk. We would stay again.

Let me start with the staff first. They are extremely friendly, knowledgeable about the area and will go out of their way for you. You can store your luggage if you get there before your room is ready.
Room Pros: Well priced, GREAT location, clean, modern, comfy bed, well lit, everything worked. Hot water comes very quickly. Good pillows and comforter. Hotel has been recently remodeled.

Cons: VERY small. All the other reviews aren't kidding, it's about the size of half of a cruise ship's cabin. For a couple like us (early 30s and just the two of us) it was just fine. We didn't mind the size however, we did mind how thin the walls were. We could hear all our neighbors' comings and goings, etc... Also the room was cold. It was about 0 to 3 degrees Celcius (around 32F) outside and it was chilly on the inside although we had some heat. Once in bed, it was ok.

Bear in mind, hand soap is provided but not bar soap. They claim the hand soap is also for hair, body, etc... bring your own conditioner/bar soap/shampoo if you're concerned about that sort of thing.

Towels were provided.

Internet access is 3Euro/day, breakfast was free and nice (toast, soft boiled eggs, juice, coffee, cereal/milk, fruit)

Just a block from the 5 and 2 trams and a block from museums, a nice square and a great safe, family oriented area. There are rooms that are bigger but this fit us just fine. Many steep stairs but a lift is available.

*This hotel is not handicap friendly

Small, but very clean room in a modern style in white and black. We stayed two nights. Close to the Rijksmuseum and tram, also not so far for walking for explore the city. Very good breakfast, enough of everything for starting a day. Staff were friendly. It is very nice for staying, so I think I will come again...

We stayed at The Poet for a weekend in March 2013 and as frequent Amsterdam visitors were very impressed. Just 2 tram stop from Leidseplein and 4-5 from Central Station the location of The Poet is great.

The reception staff were really friendly, sharing jokes with us and facilitating an early check in. The rooms are basic but stylish, the only thing I didn't like was the lack of a bath. The beds were very comfy and room clean. The breakfast that was included is a basic continental but the coffee was great and refills free.

Overall a real find, we'll definitely stay again.

Location is everything in a city like Amsterdam and the Museum Square, located South of the old city, has it al.

The Museum Quarter (the neighbourhood around the Museum Square) is, despite all its touristic attractions, largely a residential neighbourhood with tree-lined streets and gorgeous 19th-century architecture. ... more   less
