Lovely hotel with fab decor throughout! We were on the 4th floor, the room was small but great big comfy bed and good size bathroom. The only bad thing was the plug sockets....could only use one/two at a push!! The stairs at the entrance of the hotel and inside are very very steep so anyone with knee problems or similar...

I wish I could recommend this hotel with all my heart - great location, cool/quirky design, easy atmosphere, nice staff and great complementary breakfast - but I cannot ignore the basic heating factor, or to be more precise - the lack of it! The heating was insufficient for the cold November nights, and I had to put my coat on...

Amsterdam is most famous for its old type houses (besides the rest of the entertainment of course :) ). So it is not very easy to find a good place to stay. Max Brown is the place to stay. It is in the hearth of museum quarter, with one bus you can reach to the hotel from the airport, 2min....

I stayed at Max Brown Hotel only one nighy - but It was perfect - starts with the sweet "reception" - coffee-shop, continues with the simple but smart room and the "Fresh Shampoo for Fresh Thinkers" and finally the warm hospitalityof the sataff and the perfect location - 5 minutes from the museums - what could be better?

The hotel is located on a quiet street yet just around the corner from Rijksmuseum and half a block away from bus and tram stops and the Fashion District. I took bus 197 from the airport straight to the hotel and only had to walk for half a block. The room was small but I enjoyed being in it anyway....

Friendly hotel near the shopping street and old Amsterdam. Nice breakfast. Amiable staff. In honor of my wife's birthday they presented 2 bottles of local beer with snacks. It was very cute. The rooms are not large, but cozy.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
