Historical Traveler Reviews Conscious Hotel Museum Square Amsterdam
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!
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,
Simon Haft, Denver
Very nice and clean hotel
Nice big and clean rooms and a lovely staff. Looking forward to visit them again in June
Great rooms and great staff!
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!
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...
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
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
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
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...
We caught the train from Bruges to …
... bikes and pedalled around. We hit a couple of museums visiting first the Anne Frank House and then the Van Gogh museum. The Ann Frank House is a very well put together display that sheds light on the plight of the thousands of Jews who were marched out of the country and into concentration camps during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands during WWII. Ann frank was a young girl of 14 at the time that her, her family and a couple of close friends were ...
... a gallop through the Red Light district. Us old folks were far too early for the working girls except a few hardened souls who exhibited their wares in the windows of the streets. I did not look - Roz said not to so I didn't (but the one in the pussy cat pink outfit was particularly good looking !!).
A pleasant and full day of walking - so we will be pleased to get a good night's sleep !

In the Netherlands, it seems to be every fruit's high point all at once. In Washington, in order to get fresh local fruit, you start with fresh Strawberries in early June, then Raspberries and blackberries, then cherries, then peaches in August, and so on so that you get them locally at their peak. That is not the case here. They have had local Dutch berries at their peak all summer as well as wonderful French peaches ...
... idea of sitting down to eat and decided that I would have a quick sandwich at a grab and go stand. I could eat it at the gate. I picked up a juice and a bottle of water as well and was surprised when the cashier told me that I couldn't carry drinks onto the plane. What a kind gesture to make sure I didn't have to choose between chugging my water or throwing it away! I thanked him for the advice and put the bottle of water back in the cooler. I went to the gate, ate my sandwich, and ...
