Location to trams and buses and bike rentals make this a hotel I would come back to. The guest services were also very special. Kind and thoughtful. Breakfast was a great start to the day but an 8am start time (although coinciding with sunrise while I was there) was a little later than I like when exploring a city. That said, nothing much is open in Amsterdam until after 10 or 11. Big thumbs up all around.

This is not a bad hotel, just pretty outdated in terms of the rooms. I was in Europe in the mid-1980's and the hotel rooms l stayed in looked very similar. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was adequate. The location is very good - museums and canals are very close by - and the price was good. Just know that the rooms are pretty small, and a little outdated.

The Owl Hotel is a small, family run, boutique-ish hotel in a very convenient, upscale neighborhood near Vondelpark, the Museumplein, and the Leidseplein. A quick walk to the tram puts you 10-15 minutes away from everything. Our room, a triple, was very comfortable and was a great home base for our stay in Amsterdam. Others have noted their interesting policy of requiring that you leave your room's key card at the front desk when you leave the hotel for the day, but I didn't find that inconvenient or felt it was unsafe. For someone to walk in off the street, guess your room number, and gain access seems far fetched especially since the front desk staff makes a point to get to know the guests. It's not that big of a place. As a person who loses things all the time, it was kind of nice, actually. There is always a person there at the front desk to give you your card when you return. One thing to note, I was under the impression that breakfast was included in the room price, so I was a bit surprised when we were charged 14 Euros for each breakfast per person when we checked out. That mistake is on me and not a ding against the establishment. I just wanted to point it out for others like me who may assume breakfast is included. The wifi was also not very good which made working at the hotel a challenge, but not undoable. I would come back to the Owl for sure.

Really nice staff. Friendly and approachable. The only slight issue is room turnaround time: I arrived well after check-in time and my room was still being cleaned. Another day I came back after 4pm and it still wasn't done. Like I say, a very minor issue indeed. The property is well located and the breakfast was great too.

My group consisted of four friends in one room. There was ample space for our things and the room was very quiet and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
