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
The location is the best thing about this hotel, you can walk everywhere and plenty of restaurants nearby. Rooms are average, Water pressure in the bath is one of the worst I ever experienced, breakfast does not worth the price, you can walk a few minutes and pay less for a much better and fresh breakfast. In case you did not make reservations for a decent restaurant on a Friday night, you might find yourself eating frozen pizza in the hotel bar.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Amsterdam. It has a very good location if you aim to visit the museum district as well as the southbound of the center (Leidseplein and the surrounding areas where you can find plenty of nice restaurants and bars) but it is relatively far as walking distance to the northbound of the center which is the center of Amsterdam night life. So it seems a good choice for families visiting Amsterdam. The hotel has larger rooms and facilities compared to other central hotels we stayed in Amsterdam. The breakfast was very good, wide choice of menu, good service and with a nice canal view. The bathroom was however old looking and news renewal. Other than that, we were quiet pleased with this hotel. The hotel rates were comparable, but as usual, you can get better rates if you book earlier.
Stayed for 2 nights. Rooms are bright and spacious and quiet even though our room faced on to the main road. Rooms are dated and not in great condition ie cracked tiles in the bathroom and stains on the carpet etc.
Room cleaning needs more attention to detail i.e the mirrors were not clean and the toilet had stains! We arrived back in the room at around 3pm and our room had not been cleaned, and they came to do the room just as we got back so our room was not cleaned that day (we left the make up our room sign on the door too). We found the bed hard and lumpy and not very comfortable.
Positives, great staff, very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is in a good location, easy walk to museums, tram and metro stops.
Great for a few nights even though its a bit dated.
Excellent choice for a short break in this vibrant city. It was chosen for us by Rail Bookers, our trip organiser, and it was a very good choice. Suited our needs. Near to the main museums, and not far from a tram and metro station. Easy to get to by public transport from Central Station. Breakfast choice excellent. Bar menu also good for the evening it rained heavily and we didn't want to venture out again. On arrival, we were given the opportunity by the Manager, to upgrade to a corner suite with a fabulous view over the roof tops at a very good additional price. We were very glad of this as a bolt hole against the rain. Staff friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed 4 nights in a Superior room with view. Well worth the money as the view was spectacular, and the room spacious and comfortable. The nespresso machine was a nice touch. The breakfasts are very good, though the gluten free options were a bit limited. 5 mins walk to the main museums and the Concertgebouw, and close to tram and metro.
