We have just spent a truly wonderful weekend at the Asterisk Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly, the room was perfect and the breakfast delicious, varied and relaxed. I really am looking forward to visiting again.

I was stranded in Amsterdam for a night and got the last room in the hotel, a single bed with a separate (but still private) bathroom down the hall. The price was good and everything was clean and modern. They have a very nice breakfast and garden to eat it in. The staff were so helpful with everything I needed,...

The few positive aspects: the position in the city and the human quality of all the receptionists. Otherwise, the hotel is far more expensive than a 3 (real) star hotel on the French Riviera, does not offer any conditions of a 3 star hotel, with modern standards. The walls are too thin, so you know exactly what neighbors talk about...

Amsterdam seems to be priced a little like London, based on my experience. You get very little for your money. We paid €250 for two nights in mid July. The room was very small and had a single bed. The bathroom was small, but clean and modern, with a great wet-room shower. You'd probably have to spend at least €150...

The staff and owners of this hotel made us feel very welcome and were very accommodating. It is on a quiet street very close to the major museums, 5 minutes (2 blocks walk) to #16 tram connecting to the railway station and center of town. Breakfast was superior. Fresh fruit, cheese’s, sliced meats, yogurts, a variety of breads, cereals, and...

we had an excellent stay in Hotel Asterisk! first of all, this hotel accepts a "standard" booking, sending a detailed mail to the hotel with your complete coordinates, this makes you liaise directly with the hotel, which is more "human" than booking websites. We paid 110€/night (from 30 may to 3rd june) for the small double room, a good price...

Lovely hotel in a quiet street. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room very clean and in good condition. So why the "but...?" My wife and I were part of a group of 10, but couldn't get away on the same day as the rest of the group, so only stayed 2 nights. However, the hotel insisted on charging us for...
