Definitely would stay here again, as the building and room was very good. Of course, obtaining a good room wasn't a lucky chance. It was hard work. I have requested a quiet room, and they gave me a room close to the elevator, with a weird cut. So we went into lengthy discussions, and to keep the story short, I...

The hotel is trying to position itself at the luxury end of the scale, but needs to sort out a couple of things to fully make it. The staff are generally polite and helpful. Perhaps it is because this is a place of training staff that several did not think about the guest experience. For example, having selected the 17.50...

Ferilli's at the College Hotel has an excellent Italian cuisine with a personal touch. High quality products and ingredients, prepared with love and attention. Try the ravioli, the risotto or the beautiful branzino which receives it's finishing touch right at your table. A diner to remember, in a beautiful and warm setting.

I had to go to Amsterdam for a business meeting. The hotel was a recommendation of a friend of mine. I arrived early, and my room was not ready until 3 pm. I dropped my suitcase there and met some friends for lunch near Stedelijk Museum which is quite close to the hotel (10 min walk) – also is the...

I'll start with the good bits... The architecture of the hotel is beautiful and it's conversion into a hotel has been done really nicely. The staff are also excellent - polite, professional and helpful. But I'm afraid my stay was pretty unsatisfactory, and if you are travelling on business, need to work, and need a reliable WiFi then as it...

Been lucky enough to have stayed here twice. Lovely old building with plenty of character. Agree with some other reviews that rooms can be a little dark but that's all part of the feel they're aiming at. Rooms are large and well furnished. We were upgraded this time to a deluxe room...there was some noise from a wedding party...and they...

clean and modern-classic hotel. Rooms were a little dark which made it had to apply good make-up at night but that is a personal preference. Hugh windows to let in natural light during the day. Bathroom was wonderful; bath was big enough for two! Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair drier provided. About 40 mins walk to the center but tram...

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.
