“Good location”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My friend and I stayed overnight at the Poet. The room was clean, and nicely decorated. There is a small lift, but it is a lift. Wi-Fi is available at a cost. The location is a short walk to the museum quarter and Vondel Park. I posted a review on Aadlers Hotel, which is located just across the street. The staff was friendly and the bed was comfortable. I would stay at this hotel again. We had breakfast, which consisted of a variety of cheese, juice, toast, eggs, either soft or hard boiled. I did not eat any, so I am not sure.

For a 2-night city break, both the location and the price of the Poet were perfect. Whilst there may be issues for people who have particular accessibility needs, once you are in the hotel there is a lift to all floors, so you don't need to attempt the steep spiral staircases (unless you're brave!) The room itself was small (but we didn't need any more space as we were in the hotel to sleep only), but it was clean and tastefully decorated. All facilities that we required were available and working.

Location-wise there is a tram stop 2 minutes' walk away, and the Museumplein is 5 minutes' walk away. If you're looking for a hotel that's walking distance to the main part of the city centre but away from the bustle of the city streets, then the Poet is perfect.

I'd definitely come back here for a return visit.

This hotel is in an excellent location! However, it is not a good hotel. The rooms have a reasonable size and they are sort of "clean". But the size of the corridors and the elevator is extremely small and very old. You get a creepy feeling walking around. Also, you can hear everything that happens in the corridors in your room, so the quality of sleep is terrible! The breakfast is average, but again the dinning place is very old and the toilets are horrible. I would not recommend this hotel.

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.

Max Brown Museum Square settles down at the Museum Square, known by locals as the central hub of the city. Location is everything in a city like Amsterdam and the Museum Square, located South of the old city, has it al. You are just a block away from the world famous Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum, escape outdoors to the Vondelpark where you can join locals for a lovely Picnic or go for some high end shopping in the PC Hooftstraat, van Baerlestraart and Beethovenstraat. 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
