We visited over the Christmas holiday and really enjoyed staying at the College Hotel. It's location is perfect to check out the museums and right by the tram that takes you to the central train station. The room was nicely decorated and clean. We had hoped for two twin beds but by the time we arrived there weren't any available....

The hotel is closed to the museum district and easy to reach from many parking areas outside the city. If you don' t fancy walk until the centre, tram n. 5 connects you in 10/15 mins.

4 star boutique hotel Ideally placed for all the museums. Amazing interior and very quiet. A couple of faulty lights in our room but dealt with very fast. The hotel is staffed by students from nearby colleges who work alongside professionals. An excellent idea. We didn't have breakfast here as there is so much choice nearby.

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.
