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
We chose the hotel as it is in the perfect location for access to the Rijksmuseum and many others visitor attractions being just a short walk away.
We booked for a 3 night Special Anniversary stay and we were made very welcome from the moment we arrived.
They acknowledged our anniversary with a small gift of boxed confectionary and a room upgrade to the front top floor overlooking canal with full height and width window - wonderful.
Great breakfast; lots of choices plus the chef will make lots of requests on demand.
If you’ve had a late night, there’s no rush as breakfast is still fresh and as good into late morning.
The hotel has a limited and basic food selection for evening dining but if your hungry and don’t want to go out it’s still good quality. However, you don’t have to walk far to find a huge choice of different restaurants and everyone we are in did not disappoint.
Finally when my wife asked for the nearest local pharmacy as she needed some products to help with a head cold, they immediately gave her paracetamol to assist and some spare saying simply to ask at anytime if she needed more. Every time we came into reception after this, whoever was on duty asked how she was feeling.
What great service and what nice people.
If you're in Amsterdam to spend time in the museums this is the most convenient locale. If you're going to the red light district it's a hearty (but pleasant) walk. Hotel has a contemporary look, neat and tidy.
The sex museum is close to the train station , only €5 to get in and is funny and interesting all at the same time , would defo recommend it to anyone going Amsterdam wouldn’t take children mind hahha
The Museum Quarter is a great location in general; vis-a-vis, close to the museums of note and near Concert Gebouw located in an otherwise blend of business and residential. Furthermore, the public transportation is within a short walk. Lots of great and up & coming dining spots too.
The staff at this hotel was super helpful! They upgraded our room and brought us champagne for our honeymoon which was very sweet. They also exchange a small amount of cash to euro at the front desk which is convenient. The location was just outside of the hustle and bustle which was fabulous for us! The bar on site is wonderful and they have a lovely seating patio outside. Loved that we had a bathtub. Also it’s very close to the “IAmsterdam” sign and many museums, if you enjoy those things.
