tldr : just find another place which is worth your money, this one isn't! At all!!! Honestly I wasn't expecting a 5 star experience but what we had wasn't even 1. When we arrived we found out our room was actually underground (floor -1 to be clear). Unhealthy, smelling and very dark. We've asked for a baby bed (folding one),... More

The hotel offers very small confortable rooms and bathroom. The location is excellent, less than 200 meters from the Rijksmuseum and 500 meters from the Van Gogh museum. To get the cost benefit you have to book in advance and include breakfast. Breakfast is very good and complete. It is definitively worth the price. The hotel rate goes up with... More

Cheap hotel close to the big museums but longer to the older parts of Amsterdam. Breakfast is included and it was perfectly fine. Rooms are small but there was nothing to complain about, except possibly the lack of sound-proofing. If you room is heading the main street, bring a pair of ear-plugs.

This hotel has a great location is cheap and the staff are very friendly and helpful. However the rooms are beyond tiny! And the bathroom...!

The good points - lovely range of breakfast buffet, frequently topped up. Friendly and helpful staff. We liked the location too - the hotel is on a quiet street yet is only a very short walk from bars and restaurants, and of course the main museums. The less good points - the first room we were given was tiny. I... More

This hotel has an excellent location, near two museums and within walking distance of the centre, but it is not great. The standard rooms are very small and the bathroom is minute. Single beds are only 80 cm wide! More expensive rooms are bigger but can be very noisy, both street noise and noise from inside the hotel. Breakfast is... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
