This is a terrific hotel located about a 5 minute walk from the Leidseplein and it is convenient to no less than 5 tram lines. The neighboorhood is full of quaint little apartments and the location is very quiet. The hotel and the rooms are very clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included in the price. The rooms are on the larger size (although the bathroom is small; this IS Europe after all!). The vanity is outside of the bathroom and has a hair dryer. The beds were very comfortable. We were on the top floor and had a nice view. There is a lovely garden setting in the lobby with tables for eating breakfast outside. Unfortunately, the weather didn't permit during our stay! The hotel has an elevator.
Directions: From train station, take tram 1, 2 or 5 to Leidseplein exit. Head opposite direction of Leidseplein square to main street (Stadhousederskade). Walk down side street where Marriott hotel is; make 1st left; then 1st right; hotel on left.
Nice, quiet and comfortable
This small-looking hotel is tucked away in a street that boasts the houses of different nations built for the late 19thC Universal Exhibition, so they are pleasingly different. The hotel itself is small and quiet - the street is away from traffic and passing crowds, though very handy for the Rijksmuseum! Clean and comfortable - what more could one want?
The Owl Hotel
89 to 112 Euros.
Unique Quality: I found this hotel to both very charming. It is also well situated if you want to visit all of this beautiful city's great sights without have to travel too far from your hotel. It is just block awy from the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Leidseplein. The hotel is just a average size brownstone with 38 small but compfy rooms.
