“Small & snug for a little get away”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights, and found it very nice. It's in a great location right next to the museums and a tram stop at the end of the road.
The rooms were snug, a little small but manageable and comfortable with a window and a TV, bathroom etc.
The breakfast was a good little extra to have although the stairs down were a bit steep but they could be avoided by using the lift. It was a little warm in the rooms at night, but it is immensely hot in Amsterdam at the mo, and the walls were a bit thin but didn't keep us awake at night.
Overall I would revisit!

Considering this hotel cost over £300 for 3 nights it was very poor value. More like a backpackers hostel than a hotel. Shabby foyer...male receptionist not at all helpful...extremely hot with no air con, anywhere. The rooms have seen better times. Near the museums & clean Towels every day is the only positive I could find. Breakfast included is a bun fight to find a seat & food very very poor quality. I would say do not touch this hotel/hostel !!!!

Room Tip: The nearer the ground the better as the stairs are a nightmare

Great location in the museum district. Close to public transportation. Traditional dutch building with steep and narrow stairs. No air conditioning. Simple but filling breakfast. The Poet offered us what we needed for a long weekend in Amsterdam when we spent most of our time sightseeing.

Had a lovely stay at The Poet Hotel in Amsterdam. Staff were brilliant and very helpful. Thought it was going to be a bit far out from the centre, but then found we were just around the corner from the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and Vondel Park. An easy tram ride into the centre. Plenty of places to go for something to eat near the hotel.
Breakfast Continental but plenty of choice. Brilliant coffee.
Stairs very steep and windy so maybe not suitable for everyone, but the comfy bed made up for that. Never slept so well.

Room Tip: Our room was in the basement and you could hear noise from upstairs although this didn't even bo...

This was booked without doing much research, and with the knowledge that we could take a chance for just one night (in transit from ship to plane home). We wanted something centrally located, with some character, and the property certainly delivered. We arrived several hours early, but the desk manager was not disturbed in the least! Although a room was not ready (and we had NO expectation that it would be at 9 in the morning), we were offered a place to park our luggage until it would be ready in the early afternoon. Be aware that it is watched, but not closely: the shelves are in a public hallway that many use to get to rooms. We were too tired to do much, but we received a discount coupon for a canal cruise and then got a small meal close by to spend the time. Had it been necessary, we could have hung out in their small and pleasant bar, and had reasonably priced wi-fi to spend the time (3 euros/24 hours). Be aware that the steps from the street to the lobby (about 10 of them) are steep, and it is not clear that there is an elevator for heavy luggage. We would have been given any help needed, but were grateful to be on the same level as the lobby. Our room was very small by American standards, but not far off from the cruise cabin we'd just left. Very efficient layout, pleasant modern clean decor, basic clean shower, sink and toilet, but nothing extra. This is to be expected in older buildings in the museum district and are perfectly in character with the area. Nicely centrally located, this is perfect if you expect to be spending the majority of your time doing the museums and others sites. Very kind, efficient and friendly staff, we would stay again on the right trip.

We spent there 2 nights before Christmas, the rooms are quite tight, but very clean. The elevator is old and it didn't work once, so we had to take the stairs which were very tight as well, a bit difficult climbing. Also, to enter the hotel you need to climb sone steps, not at all wheelchair friendly. The breakfast was ok, personnel helpful enough. The location is very good, close to museums, but also shopping/going out center. Easy to reach fron the airport.

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
