Nice and cozy room

Great loction just by the "museumsquarter" , Friendli staff, nice warm room, huge bed that was very soft. The hotel could use a small fix up, bt in general it was perfect for my husband and I. The tram was just around the corner. Nice quiet neighborhood.

Perfect hotel for an Amsterdam visit

We have usually astayed at hotels just beside the Centralstation, but we tried a hotel at the "museumquarters" Location was perfect even though its a long walk to centrum, but there is always a tram and you never have to wait for them it seems. But again the hotel was cosy, huge beds that were very soft. And the room was really warm :) The hotel would not suffer from a small carpet change and a little fix up etc, but we enjoyed ourselves either way. No noise from other guests or people outside,very quiet neighborhood. And really nice staff. We liked it

Pretty disppointing

Stayed in a house opposite the main building of the hotel, given a room in the basement which steps so steep my luggage wont go though. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful in giving me another room on the ground floor. Overall room was ok, but no hairdryer, no kettle, no cups, not teas. Just really only shower gel as amenities. Bed, pillows and blankets are good, but not something to shout about. Here comes the really bad ones... toilet is really small in this room 111. not sure if its the same so felt its unfair to judge this hotel... and it has a mild urine stench everyday when i was there for 3 nights. The hot shower is not really hot and at the hottest point its only just right, and it unstable, so you never know when it will go away... i wont imagine this for winter.

A friendly hotel with character

We had high expectations as this hotel was mentioned in a novel, 'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green. We were not disappointed. Lovely individual decor, quirky and thoughtful. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location near Vondelpark and Museums. Lots of local restaurants. Would happily stay here again and recommend to anyone who likes hotels with character.

Good Hotel

A good hotel overall. Nice lounge and garden. The cosy bedrooms are on the small side. Breakfast was poor. Cornflakes awful and staff inattentive.A rip off for 12.5 euros and that is with a discount! Drinks expensive. Bottled water 7 euros but tap water was free!

Great hotel with great service. Had a room with a view over the garden - fantastic! Was however surprised to find the room cheaper at the hotel than what I paid online.

The hotel is in a pleasant and

The hotel is in a pleasant and convenient location for the park and museums. It has a nice garden, but the hotel itself is rather shabby. There were no mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, decent toiletries or even tissues in the room. It has no restaurant or proper bar although there are plenty close by. It is a glorified B&B. Worst of all, having hung the "Do not Disturb" sign on the door, I received a phone call from reception asking if I wanted my room serviced, whilst there was a lot of very ostentatious banging, clattering and vacuuming going on outside the door. For the price and location it was only reasonable value, rather than the "bargain" I had hoped for. I find it hard to recommend, it needs a thorough overhaul.
