As our "usual" Amsterdam hotel was closed during Christmas, we were recommended to stay at Hotel Asterisk by our friends in A'dam. And that turned out to be a great suggestion. This hotel was perfect for the two of us. Located within walking distance of almost all interesting points for us, and just a minute walk from the nearest tram...

The hotel is placed in quite yet convenient location, 5 minutes from the Rijsk and Van Gogh museums and also close to a street full of restaurants. The rooms are clean and nice and the staff is extremely helpfull.

As a frequent visitor to Amsterdam this hotel ticks all the boxes. Clean hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast, convenient location in a quiet area. What more could one want for a reasonable price? I love to walk from the hotel up Reguliersgracht through historic Grachtengordel to the Old Centre.

The positives: great location friendly staff, large room and clean bathroom The negatives: poor value for money (over £400 for three nights for one twin room with no breakfast), shabby furnishings, cheap carpets, no storage in the bathroom. I know that Amsterdam is an expensive city but I was disappointed to pay premium rates for what is essentially a budget...

The room 45 was so tiny, that a cant belive it was not a joke. Nothing close to the photos. The receptinonist was not so friendly. I am expecting beter service an beter rooms. The stairs was terrifing.
