Reviewed 1 January 2012

To be honest, if you need to go to Amsterdam, try your best to stay here. The nine streets area is probably the most unique Dutch experience you will have anywhere in Amsterdam, minus the Wind Mill... It truely feels like a village.

Great restaurants, great bars, great markets, great atmosphere!

We stayed in the White Suite and Analik was exceptionally accommodating.

Loved the extra charm offered by the awesome view from the suite! We did not want to leave!

Let’s get one thing straight – Miauw Suites is not a hotel – there is no concierge or room service and if you need a full service hotel, then don’t stay here. However, if you’re looking for a very central, stylish apartment as a base for a city break, then I’d thoroughly recommend it. The rooms are a little noisy as they overlook a canal street, but the views of the Amsterdam canals are stunning and the interiors very chic and minimalist. I especially liked the wet room bathrooms – small but practical. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The white suite is beautiful

I love Miauw because you know you are in Amsterdam every minute. The room design is unique and small but works. It's very clean and I prefer a Mac to a TV. The White Room has a fantastic view over the bridge and down the Keizersgracht. The Black Room has one wall of window instead of two but is a bit larger with a bigger bathroom and a real closet. Both are lovely as are the women who run the place. Don't expect someone around every minute, but who needs that. You can be in close touch with hotel management if you need to be via email or phone. Love the place, but then I do love Amsterdam!

Miauw Suites looked great on the internet but the reality is completely different. This is not actually a hotel as it has no facilities outside of the rooms whatsoever. Having lugged our bags up the steep stairs to the first floor (no elevator) we arrived in the White Room. The temperature was around 90 degrees inside (despite being 70 outside) and there is no air conditioning. We were on our honeymoon and wanted to experience a boutique hotel but this was appalling in every way. We checked out straight away and found alternative accommodation close by that was very good. Miauw Suites has declined to refund any of our costs for the 2 night stay. I understand that we arrived at 3pm on the first day and that it would be unlikely that the room could be sold again but feel that the second night should have been refunded.

Room Tip: Somewhere else

The TRIPADVISOR reviews were so glowing that I chose Miauw Suites over many other possibilities. Supposedly my husband and I had been upgraded from a room to a suite, but the space didn't seem to be a suite by what I consider a suite. The bed was very comfortable; the room was clean; the young woman Maya who showed us to our room was very helpful and nice; the building was on a canal. But the room/suite was probably not worth the price we paid. Given that there is no lobby or concierge service, we walked a block to the Hotel Pulitzer and used their concierge services. They were very helpful in arranging a day tour to Rotterdam, Madurodam, Delft, a flower market, etc. They also got us taxis once or twice.

Several days after we returned home, I read an article in the New York Times about people getting paid $5 to write positive reviews about hotels or restaurants. I was sad to read that the authenticity of some of the TRIPADVISOR reviews might be compromised.
