Reviewed 28 February 2010

very welcoming, pleasant and helpful staff. The room is clean, nice and quiet. . my room was much more than I expected -It's basic but comfortable enough. Ideal if you looking for a place that's away from the traffic and all city noise. Good location residential area, 10 minutes walk from the city centre.

I stayed at the Asterisk with two friends for three nights last April and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is located south of the city centre close to the Heineken brewery museum and is a stones throw from the nearest bus and tram stop. There is now a new annex on Den Texstraat adjacent to the main hotel where my...

We stayed 4 nights in that hotels and booked it from Internet. They send us to the next house where they have other rooms, but not elevators. You have to carry your 20 Kg luggages on these high stairs (you see your partner feet when you climb, do not forget your alpinism equipment (joke) ) The personnel is friendly and...

I was in Amsterdam for 3 nights by myself. As a recent college graduate, the price and other peoples reviews were what got me to book at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms and public areas very clean and looked to be quite new. Sharing a bathroom was not an issue, it was always clean...

This hotel was only one step above a hostel in our estimation and but was priced like a much nicer hotel. No/minimal toiletries. Rooms not consistently cleaned. Breakfast included but not very high quality. We did like the location, near the Cuypmarket, Heinekin Brewery and an easy walk to many locations once you got a feel for the layout of...

I did not feel very welcomed; they have booked me in their other house in the street (so if you do a reservation my recommendation is to make sure you are in the main building) and nobody was helping me carrying the lugagge although I was on my own. The room was very small. I booked a shared toilett &...

I titled my review "Better elsewhere" because I think you could find a comparable hotel for the same or better price closer to the center of Amsterdam and save walking time. The quality was average but there is no way this place could get away with their prices in most cities. A room like this would cost much less in...

I have stayed in Amsterdam for six days for a conference. I booked the single room with private shower in the Asterisk hotel because it seemed to be a good price. The room was clean and breakfast was good. However I was very disappointed when I learned about the hotel's WiFi policy. Asterisk charged 5 Euros for using their WiFi...

I stayed in a spacious room which is part of the hotel but a couple doors down. Had my own toilet and bath.The great thing is it is close walking distance to the museums and just a 20 minute walk to downtown Amsterdam or you can take the trams which are in walking distance to the hotel. The only problem...

The hotel was super easy to get to, and was within walking distance of many of the attractions. Anything that was farther away was easily reachable via tram or canal bus, both having stops very close by. The single room was very small, but clean. If you don't spend a lot of time in the room, it serves it's purpose....
