great location

The hotel had a great location, only a block away from a tram. The neighborhood is really posh, and there are a lot of decent places to eat as well.

Took twnty min. to check-in

When arrived, they told me that they have over-booking problem on that night and asked me to use neighber hotel for the first night. I agreed it inder the condition if we stay full two nights on the alternative hotel.We needed to wait for 20 minutes to settle the games and finally got a room on Menphis.

Great Holiday

Lovely hotel, helpful staff. The Valentine's dinner we had in the restaurant was first rate. The hotel is not as close to the centre of Amsterdam as we would have liked, but there is a frequent tram service.

Memphis Hotel Amsterdam

This is not a 4Star hotel, but it is still a nice hotel, and the staff are very nice. The Bar and Resturaunt are overpriced - hence they are mostly found to be empty. location - well a little out of the way but saved by the proximity to the #16 Tram which will take you directly into Damm Square for a couple of Euro's. Room was clean and mostly quiet, it had aircon. There are similarly priced hotels downtown without the 4star claim which have same/similar attributes but with the advantage of location to the centre.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

If you are into solo Euro TV watching - this is the hotel for you. If you want any other entertainment is at least a 10min walk to the nearest pub and further to some of the resturaunts and shops. Best advice I could give is to dump your bags and get the tram into town.

Absolutely fine

Not really special and just a bit too far from the centre for comfort. The local area is quiet with a few good places to eat at much lower prices.

Memphis shine

The hotel is set in a quite and nice neighbourhood with easy access to the city bus and tram networks. Very helpful and friendly staff! The hotel room was small for a double room but clean with the exception of the shower curtain that needed changing, which the duty staff obliged and I was happy with response. Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our stay of summer city break!

Excellent value at the Memphis Hotel.

Located in a nice area of Amsterdam, my room was upgraded which was perfectly fine. Staff was extremely courteous and took care of any needs. I visited not only Amsterdam, but Brugge Belgium, as well as had dinner with friends in Haarlem. I would certainly go back to this hotel in the future. Jack Colgan

Purchase a 72 hour tram pass as opposed to buying a new 24 hour pass every day. 72 hr.pass was 16Euro as opposed to 7.50 for the 24 hr one.

Hardly four stars

I spent a week here. Like other reviewers, I had a fine experience, but hardly something worth 4 stars. The location is good: very quiet at night, outside the tourist center proper, a 5-minute walk from Vondelpark, 10 minutes to Museumplein, tram 16 stops a block away, other trams a few blocks away. (Tip: to get to the airport, walk 3 blocks to tram 5, take it to station Amsterdam Zuid. 4-6 trains an hour to the airport, a 6-minute ride for eu 2.40. Overall, less time than the KLM shuttle bus!) My single room was clean and well-equipped but very small. They only give you the standard European "body wash" liquid soap instead of a proper hotel-sized bar of soap. The breakfast buffet for eu 12.50 was good: great scrambled eggs, all the expected fare like bacon, breads, cereals (didn't try), basic lunch meats and cheeses, but still felt somewhat limited (not much fresh fruit) and the same all week long. Friendly service by real people. Perhaps the biggest weakness for me: the free-for-the-asking internet is okay for checking email, but not much else: Skype voice calls were unusable, I didn't even try video calls. Also it can be used by one device only. I got a very good pre-paid rate online, but beware: cancellation fee is 100%, and the hotel still charged me city tax on check-out, which was NOT mentioned on check-in. They must've had some kind of water accident during my stay (it was a very rainy week): after a few days the lobby carpet smelled moldy, but this wasn't the case the first few days.

Lots of decent local restaurants 1-3 blocks towards Vondelpark. That's actually a popular neighborhood and those places aren't very touristy.
