Hotel Asterisk Amsterdam breathes a very friendly atmosphere and is situated in a 19th century building that has expanded over several premises throughout the years. There are different rooms available for every budget due to the original construction of the premises. Numerous interesting sights, such as the 'Rembrandtplein', 'Museumplein' and the 'Albert Cuyp' market are all within walking distance. The hotel is also easy to reach by tram and bus, so you can easily travel in any direction.

The hotel offers excellent service. The staff will gladly inform you about special events, museums or restaurants that are nearby. If you explore Amsterdam by bicycle, which is very convenient, you can safely park your two-wheeler in the inner courtyard of the hotel. But motorcyclists are also looked after. There are a few anchors in the wall that can be used to secure your bike. All rooms are equipped with a television, phone and safe. The 'basic' rooms have a shower and toilet in the hallway, while all other rooms are equipped with a private bathroom. Hair dryers and electric kettles are available on request at the reception.

The place to stay in Amsterdam!
  • + This hotel was by far the best hotel during our European visit as well as any others elsewhere that come to mind from my visiting past. The rooms were spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was so friendly and helpful and even gave us extra TLC. I recommend this hotel without question. The location was perfect for getting anywhere in Amsterdam.

Good value for money.
  • + Nice clean room, good quiet location near trams and reasonable walking distance from the centre. Service was good. Toilet + shower was in the same room and it was nice. I could definitely stay in Asterisk again. Some rooms are on different buildings on the same street.
  • Breakfast was a little too simple to my taste. No elevator but luckily our room was only one floor up from street level. I'm guessing that its a cultural thing but personally I don't like toilet seats that leave your poop for display before flushing. Smells bad too.

I'd go back
  • + Great breakfast, very convenient location just far enough away from most of the more popular areas to be quiet but easily accessible. Would definitely go back.
  • Lots of stairs! This is fairly standard for Amsterdam I know but we were over there doing the marathon and climbing up to the room afterwards was like going up the North face of the Eiger.

Close to major museums
  • + Great location for musuem lovers. Within walking distance to Rjiksmuseum and van Gogh musuem. Also close to Heineken brewery, canal tours and the market.

Excellent budget choice for Amsterdam!
  • + Great hotel for this price range. Better then most you would find in amsterdam for this price. Clean, spacious room & facilities. Great breakfast. Lovely staff.
  • The only minus is a small one - the hotel is a little bit further on from the 'central' area of the the city. But it's only 10 mins walk or a quick tram ride, or 5 mins by bicycle. The little extra distance is by far made up by the quality of this budget hotel.
