Fashionable and attractive, the ivy-covered facade of the Memphis Hotel Amsterdam will impress you on arrival, and the attentive, personalized service of its staff upon check-in will continue to win you over. The hotel is the perfect, quaint place to unwind after a day exploring the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, or taking a breathtaking sunset canal cruise. Offering a lot of unique character, the Memphis Hotel is tastefully and elegantly decorated.

Memphis

Staff were very friendly & helpful! Rooms were also kept well cleaned. The only downside would be the location - almost an hour walk to Dam square!

World Cup 2014 Getaway

This is the 1st time I have stayed at this Hotel and was very impressed. It is ideal if you wish to visit all Museumplein or alternatively if you wish to go to Dam Square or the other attractions around there you can get a No 16 Tram from the Emmastraat or Jacob Obrechtstraat Stops near the Hotel or any one of numerous Trams from Museumplein. I certainly would stay here again with my only reservation being the 20 / 25 minute journey on the Tram into Central Amsterdam.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy a pass that allows you to travel on the Trams, Metro or Night Buses. No 16 Tram from near Hotel at Emmastraat or Jacob Obrechtstraat takes you into the centre of Amsterdam in 20 / 25 minutes.

Decent Hotel

Location is not in the city centre, but in a convenient and quieter location easily accessible by public transportation. Bus 197 has a stop at Musieumplein nearby for airport transfer, and trams 16 and 2 to the city centre are close also. The room size is reasonable for this class and inside is clean and tidy, and the bed mattress is firm enough for my back. Staff are efficient and friendly and English is well spoken. Breakfast has reasonable variety and the dining area is spacious and quite well decorated. One comment is on the way food was handled by a lady, that empty hand was used to refill cheese and ham, and in front of the guests, which is not that professional and hygienic. I saw her moping the floor with spilled liquid and not sure if she had washed her hands before handling food with no gloves. I paid a well discounted price, to make it a good value for money for this hotel.

Not too expensive by Amsterdam standards. Good location, next to Tram 16 stop. Close to museums. Breakfast was pathetic and expensive. Not worth it.

I would rate this a "good" [3

I would rate this a "good" [3 star] hotel. Breakfast was good. Location excellent if you want to see museums. Ha WiFi. But nothing special. If you want a place to sleep and as a homebase for touring, it does the job.
