Stayed recently in this hotel and thankfully for only one night. Staff very obliging , location very central, quiet and refined and on the whole the hotel could be described as clean but our room was ludicrously small. We were in room 35 - top floor facing the front - and I am not exaggerating when I say the room...

Three of us (my mom, a friend and I) stayed at the Hotel Hestia the last week in May and I can honestly say I will not look for another hotel in amsterdam. This is it, the one we will stay at any time we go back. What a location. Just a few minutes walk to Vondlepark, one way, and...

This hotel in Amsterdam has a lot going for it, such as a great location on a quiet street near the Van Gogh Museum, helpful staff, and a decent breakfast (included). However, it has one big drawback: the rooms (at least ours) are tiny. We had to stow our suitcases in the (tiny) shower in order to have space to...

Great value for basic creature comforts. Located on quiet street near museums and Vondel Park. Small tidy rooms, adequate lift, nice breakfast, and very helpful staff. Recommended to anyone, singles, families, seniors, couples, looking for quiet, basic lodging. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends/family.

I just got back from a 4-night stay here with my Mum and we felt that we couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel. For the price (we paid 140 euros per night for a large triple room as all twins were booked), it was superb. The room was HUGE (and had a balcony too), the breakfast was lovely with plenty...

We stayed here for 4 nights in April (recommendation from the Rick Steve's book). My husband had a conference in the Dam area, and none of the conference hotels would accommodate 4 people! This place was cheaper than most of the conference room hotels, and breakfast was included! Since I was traveling with my husband and two kids (6 &...

Hestia was recommended to me by a work colleague & I wasn't disappointed. A small, family run and very friendly hotel. Stayed 4 nights in a 3-bedded room (no. 16) which was plenty large enough for us, and has a wide balcony overlooking the street. Room very clean and comfortable: our only grumble was the shower temperature was fiddly to...

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.

“Guests in a hurry might prefer a room in the first floor - the lift must be one of the slowest in Europe !”

“European hotels in older buildings usually have steep stairs. I have found an elevator to be essential. 2 rules for traveling: 1. have a sense of humor 2. expect the unexpected. When #2 happens, and it will, refer to #1.”

“Ask for a good flowing shower. Stairs are tiny. Lift is slow but bearable. If you have a lot of luggage (more than two hand luggages) avoid room 35.”
