A very friendly hotel.

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: Very friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast.
Cons: Internet connection and a cooler air con.
Location: It's close to the big museums and situated in a good area .
Memphis Hotel A very friendly hotel that I booked because it was one of few that included bed and breakfast (the breakfast by the way is very good) and close - ish to the centre of Amsterdam / museum land. If you don't like walking maybe a more central hotel is better for you. We love to walk and soak in the atmosphere so this location which we had pre- checked on Google maps was perfect for us. It only cost £540 thru Expedia for 7 nights b&b flights from UK in Aug so I wasn't expecting the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It is a basic 4* city hotel, that is clean, well located for museums and has very, very friendly staff. The area it is located in is semi- posh and friendly area, set on a main artery St therefor good for buses and trams. If you are sensitive to traffic noise this may be a problem if your room is facing a street. The only issues that may affect some people are slow internet ( sometimes minutes to load - could be cos we had top floor room in the hotel. Also, air con struggled to keep the room cool ( it was in 20 degrees outside and I do like my room cooler than that at night - I'm hopeless!!) Sorry about that bit of neg everything else was absolutely fabulous.

Peaceful

Very enjoyable. We got this place at a very good rate. Although it is in the suburbs it is just a quick and easy tram journey from the city centre. There are two tram stops within a minute's walk.

Very lovely stay

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: The valur for money and location
Cons: Nothing
Location: Shops, restaurants, trams, museums.
The hotel was really easy to get to and in a lovely area of the city. If you don'y want the hassle of eating in the centre there are a few really nice places withing walking distance - and a great "brown bar". The hotel staff were very helpful and breakfast very good value. We've stayed in the centre of Amsterdam before but would quite happily trade those locations for this one.

Great Location for museums and upmarket boutiques

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Great Location Air Conditioning Range of TV channels in 5 different languages
Cons: The bathrooms could have better extraction and the bathroom sink seemed to take an age to drain - which left toothpaste residue in the basin.
Location: Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Concertegbouw, Vondels Park, Leidseplein. The Anne Frank, Foam & the Dutch Resistance Museum further afield.
Located only 50 metres from a number 16 tram stop (Emmastraat) , this hotel is easily accessed from Amsterdam Centraal and beyond. The rooms are on the snug side, but have air conditioning, king-size beds and the en suites are equipped with fantastic power showers. There is also a free multilingual TV service and a digital safe in each room. This is a great hotel for those wanting to explore the Museum Quarter (Museumplein) & Vondels Park, the Leidseplein and the famous Canal Ring (Herengracht, Prinsengracht & Keisersgracht), all of which are within walking distance. For shoppers, the boutiques on Jacob Obrechtstraat & Cornelius Schuystraat offer a wealth of options, many designer labels and personal tailoring. The hotel serves a hearty self-service breakfast, which can be pre-purchased with your booking (be warned, breakfast is expensive if it is not pre-ordered.) Breakfast includes hot eggs, bacon, beans and sausages, in addition to cereals, fruit, yoghurts, toast, croissants, cold meats and cheeses. The hotel will also offer to store your baggage on the day you leave and can arrange tickets for bus excursions around the city, in addition to GVB day tickets for the tram. Hotel staff are efficient and professional. Travellers from the UK might expect a slightly "warmer" form of customer service. Though the service can occasionally appear brusque, this is not personal and is merely a cultural difference.

Lovely hotel in a great area

Posted Aug 16, 2014
The hotel was out of the centre which was perfect for us, away from the crowds, in a really pretty and quiet area with good links to the centre and canal rings and tourist attractions. The staff were helpful and polite. The only negative was the wine purchased from the bar one night which wasn't very nice and the staff member serving us was a little rude. Other than that the front desk and restaurant staff were great. Breakfast was excellent, everything you could want! The room itself was a good size for a 4 night stay, clean and tidy. The only problem was some of the plug sockets didn't work, but we survived! There were a lot of lamps in the room... 4 in fact which was a bit excessive but not a problem! The beds were very very comfortable. All in all it was a good stay, we'd come back and we'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

thoroughly recommended.

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: Everything from the staff to the location of the hotel.
Cons: Nothing could be improved.
Location: Short tram ride into the city. Local restuarants .
The hotel staff made us very welcome throughout our stay. If we had any problems then they sorted them out very quickly. Would certainly return to the Memphis as it is situated conveniently with a short tram ride into the city. The location of the hotel gives you a very restful place to stay and peaceful nights.

Nice hotel close to park and museum.

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Cons: The hotel decor is a little tired and if you don't like the lift the stairs are hard to find and came out behind the bar!
Good location if you want to be away from the center. We walked everywhere so didn't mind the 15 min walk. Easy access on bus 197 from the airport to the hotel.

Quiet hotel near vondel park

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: Location, room

Location: Vondel park, walking distance to rijksmuseem and Heineken, many good local restaurants nearby
Nicely located near good restaurants, Pakistan for recreation and public transportation. Staff was obliging but business services and food services were mediocre.
