    Historical Traveler Reviews Conscious Hotel Museum Square Amsterdam

    Great Location!

    from

    I stayed here last month and it was absolutely fantastic. This hotel is located in a great neighborhood in the center of Amsterdam. Close to bars, musea and concert hall. Nice staff, clean rooms and a reasonable price.

    I'll be back!

    Perfect!!

    from

    A great place to stay, perfect location to visite all the important museums. Big rooms, very nice staff and a lovely breakfast.

    Thank you for your hospitality,

    Very nice and clean hotel

    from

    Nice big and clean rooms and a lovely staff. Looking forward to visit them again in June

    Great rooms and great staff!

    from

    Very nice hotel with great rooms and a very helpfull staff. Situated in a very clean and safe neighbourhood! We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Changed name, and better staff!

    from

    I stayed at this Hotel in September 2005, and had a good time! Very clean, though the interior is a little tired. Generally I really enjoyed it.

    Me and my boyfriend had a rather large room, though without a bedspread (is it just me or should a 4star hotel not have such small things???).

    The breakfast was wonderful with lots to choose from (though nothing warm) and a really nice room to eat it in.

    The staff was reasonably helpful, though hard to recognize since nobody seemed to be in uniform. I found it rather confusing to be adressed by total strangers when I had no idea that they were staff...

    There seems to be some confusion about the hotel's name too, the taxi driver did not know what it was. I think it was called the Ramada Museum Square Hotel Lairesse (or something like that) before, but I was informed by a very friendly receptionist that they have changed owners. A little enoying when you are trying to take a taxi home at 4am...

    Otherwise the location was great, close to everything (if you don't mind walking for like 10min), and generally I really loved Amsterdam!

    I can recommend the hotel if you want a simple enough place to stay, that is quiet, clean, comfortable and if you eat a big breakafst most of the time...

    Good location

    from

    This Hotel is in an excallant location for the Museums (obviously), the 'posh' shops and some lovely places to eat. Our room was huge and clean, but a little tired decor wise. Breakfast was pretty simple but good and the staff were very helpful. It benefits from a shuttle bus to and from the airport and is only a short distance from the nearest tram line. We stayed here as part of a package deal so felt that the standard of the hotel was in keeping with the price of the holiday. Book this hotel is you want a good place to sleep, but not if you want something a little more special.

    Great location, standard hotel

    from

    I don't think this is the same hotel as the AMS Lairesse, as posted on the site. I am reviewing the Museum Square Hotel, same address as the site though. Only one building... very close to both the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, plus lots of restaurants nearby. Hotel is in a very quiet, residential area. Small staff, but got the job done. The breakfast array is great, with four cereals, breads, meats, cheese, spreads, eggs, coffee, tea, juices. Beds have wonderful comforters. Bathroom in my room was pretty big, shower on the small side (hard to share). Nice view over the Amsterdam suburbs. A bit of a walk from Centraal Station, but worth it. Spent around 95 Euro a night, breakfast included.

    Mostly inconvenient and frustrating

    from

    Spent 3 nights at this hotel in August 2004. We were put in the building two doors down from the main building. Pros: A few of us were upgraded to the deluxe room - extremely hip, modern, stylish, comfortable, roomy, and the spacious, multi-piece bathroom was a highlight. The regular rooms were plain and were a far cry from the deluxe rooms. Safety boxes in the rooms a bonus.

    Cons: Stairs with no ramp to the building door were inconvenient when travelling with heavy luggage. Front desk was terribly understaffed which made the stay most frustrating. The location was not ideal as the hotel is quite far from most attractions. However, if you are looking for a peaceful, more residential surrounding, this would be good.

    All in all, the inconvenience of the location and the building, combined with the frustrations with the service far outweigh the stylish room. I would not return to this hotel.

    Plain yet funky

    from

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel yet sensed that you need to be careful about what room you are placed in. I was placed out of the main hotel, down the street 2 doors to an adjoining building. I had a nice room right over the street, but late in the evening the halls, and tiny, industrial elevator seemed very remote. I would have felt better staying in the main hotel. Rooms were tiny and bath/shower even smaller. Overall clean, but the section I was in showed wear. Close to concert hall and museums, it was a convenient location quieter than any "in-town" property.

    I have a confession to make. I really didn't think we'd find enough things to do in Amsterdam for five days. Boy, was I wrong! Amsterdam buzzes! I think it's a city that young people in particular would really love, although there's heaps to do for old fogeys like us. But, to start at the beginning...

    ... some weight training in while Caroline went on her longer runs.

    Of course, the big event during our week in The Netherlands was Catherine's birthday. On August 15th, my little princess turned 9. How quickly time flies. We had been talking up her birthday for weeks and had agreed to let Catherine plan every aspect of that day, from dawn till dusk. After all, since we were traveling she was not going to be able to have a party with her friends, so we wanted to ...

    We caught a train back to the city. I returned to the hotel for a few minutes to change, and then some people from my class and I returned to the city to find a bar to watch the USA vs. Germany game at. There were quite a few Germany fans, but the Dutch were cheering for the US because Germany is ...

    ... trendy areas including the Jordaan were just steps away.

    What a find, the only draw back that there were no elevators and it was 37 steep, steep, steep stairs to reception! Luckily our room was on a lower floor and we only has to contend with 17 of them on regular basis.

    We enjoyed our time walking the canals, being overwhelmed by the number of bicycles in the city. The approximate population is around 800,000 and we think everyone uses a bike ...

    ... photos we headed back to the Botel where we took some time out in the communal bar/lounge area where Kellie did some New Years research and I played some pool.  Our Christmas night topped of our Christmas Day perfectly.  We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant and ate some amazing Chinese food with some great company.  Then we headed off on a hour and a half canal cruise. On this cruise we had a great time chatting and doing a secret santa.  Once ...
