Excellent Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 31, 2005

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.

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

by written on August 25, 2002

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.

WE are making a short stop in Amsterdam (2 nights) on the way to Zimbabwe. My travel agent recommended The Owl. It looks like it is pretty well reviewed. The only drawback seems to be the room size. Has anyone stayed there recently?

    I don't mind that they are small. We won't be in the room much at all. Ifit is quiet, clean and the bed is comfortable that's all we require.

    That's good. I don't know the Owl personally but the reviews on the reliable www.booking.com can only be written by people who have booked through the site and completed their stay. I've used the site many times for many places (including the US) and have always found things to be as I expected from site info and reviews. Here are the reviews for the Owl:
