I was in Amsterdam for 3 nights by myself. As a recent college graduate, the price and other peoples reviews were what got me to book at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms and public areas very clean and looked to be quite new. Sharing a bathroom was not an issue, it was always clean...

This hotel was only one step above a hostel in our estimation and but was priced like a much nicer hotel. No/minimal toiletries. Rooms not consistently cleaned. Breakfast included but not very high quality. We did like the location, near the Cuypmarket, Heinekin Brewery and an easy walk to many locations once you got a feel for the layout of...

I did not feel very welcomed; they have booked me in their other house in the street (so if you do a reservation my recommendation is to make sure you are in the main building) and nobody was helping me carrying the lugagge although I was on my own. The room was very small. I booked a shared toilett &...

I titled my review "Better elsewhere" because I think you could find a comparable hotel for the same or better price closer to the center of Amsterdam and save walking time. The quality was average but there is no way this place could get away with their prices in most cities. A room like this would cost much less in...

I have stayed in Amsterdam for six days for a conference. I booked the single room with private shower in the Asterisk hotel because it seemed to be a good price. The room was clean and breakfast was good. However I was very disappointed when I learned about the hotel's WiFi policy. Asterisk charged 5 Euros for using their WiFi...

I stayed in a spacious room which is part of the hotel but a couple doors down. Had my own toilet and bath.The great thing is it is close walking distance to the museums and just a 20 minute walk to downtown Amsterdam or you can take the trams which are in walking distance to the hotel. The only problem...

The hotel was super easy to get to, and was within walking distance of many of the attractions. Anything that was farther away was easily reachable via tram or canal bus, both having stops very close by. The single room was very small, but clean. If you don't spend a lot of time in the room, it serves it's purpose....

After our brief encounter with a shoebox in Paris, we were most delighted with the spacious, bright and airy room (a comfortable size for three) when we arrived at Hotel Asterisk. We thoroughly appreciated its location on a quiet residential street near Weteringcircuit - certainly a relief from the hustle and bustle of Damrak. Yet it's minutes (by tram) or...

We stayed at Asterisk during Queensday and it was great! Rooms are nice, clean and large enough. The only problem was, that you are not allowed to smoke in the room and there wasn't any balcony, but we managed:) It's in a beautifull small quiet street across the canal from Heineken in a walking distance to all the atractions.

The good things about this hotel are that it’s in a quiet location of Amsterdam but within walking distance to many of the attractions. A couple of different tram lines also stop nearby to take you to attractions further afield. The breakfast which was included in the rate was also good in that there was quite a bit of variety...
