NH Amsterdam Museum Quarter
What We Love
- A lovely hotel with contemporary interiors and stunning city views – includes breakfastThe hotel’s top canalside location, less than 10 minutes’ walk from Museumplein
- Taking a moment in the tranquil courtyard terrace after a heady day in the Dam
- Splashing out on just about everything in your upscale Oud Zuid ‘hood
What To Know
- Guestrooms are spacious and have floor-to-ceiling windows with canal views
- Best of both worlds: central location but also very quiet
- Free WiFi is fast and reliable
Parked peacefully by one of Amsterdam’s trademark canals and a stroopwafel’s throw from culture-rich Museumplein, NH Amsterdam Museum Quarter has a prime spot in the Dutch capital and a light, airy and current feel inside. Plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows show off views of the canal, traditional Amsterdam houses and upscale life in the moneyed Oud Zuid neighbourhood.
When you’re not romantically coasting along the canals, the fantastic Van Gogh Museum, iconic I Amsterdam sign, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and countless other cultural hotspots are all a pleasant stroll away.
The all-day Palette Restaurant & Bar is a trooper when it comes to a simple lunch or dinner, and its leafy courtyard terrace is a pretty spot to take some time out with a glass of wine. The hotel’s well-equipped gym is also on hand should you indulge in some city break excess.
Not only did the crowd-pleasing NH Amsterdam Museum Quarter scoop a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, it also reached the GreenLeaders Gold level for its eco-conscious practices.
How to Get There
This hotel was booked as part of a vacation package. We enjoyed the convenience to the museums and local open-air market. The morning breakfast offers a good selection, even custom omelette preparation. The room carpet probably needs a good steam cleaning. When we checked in we were told our reservations had been cancelled. Fortunately, they were able to reinstate them, but offered no apology. They offer a bar and light food in the evening, but the bar often times indicated they were out of a common supply, such a limes. The reception was a mixed bag of good and bad service. We were given incorrect tour information about discounts on the Hop On Hop Off bus. We were misinformed about how the Van Gogh Museum pre-purchased tickets worked at the hotel vs at the museum. I believe more training needs to be provided to the reception staff about tourism information. Museum Tip: If you buy tickets at the kiosk AT the Van Gogh museum, there are more openings than if you buy them at the hotel or online. You will have to wait in line at the kiosk though.
It was our first time to visit the country and we chose Amsterdam for our 3 nights stay. The hotel is clean and decent. It is a walk to and from the nearest tram and bus stops so be prepared with your walking shoes. It is walkable to the museums and the Heineken place. Our room has the view of the canal and is it very spacious. The food and drinks inside the room are not free. They charged us the city tax which is very expensive. The staff are ok but not friendly and they do not smile. I recommend this hotel.
The hotel is a little bit old, but with all the services, the best is the location, because is only a few steps to the museumquarter (van gogh museum), the connection with the public transport is also very good, definitely i will return in the next ocassion
