Not for Americans

This hotel is located in a nice area that makes Amsterdam sites accessible by bus or tram. But, the hotel rooms are so small, that if you're not traveling alone, there is not enough space. We booked a double, and we had to rearrange the furniture to accommodate our luggage. One of the beds was not comfortable, the maid service was very poor, and to top it off we were without any water one afternoon without any notice. Also please note: (April 2011) they were doing major construction on the building, less than 100 ft from our window, that started at about 7am on weekdays, so don't plan to sleep in.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The Museumplein area is great for all types of museums and is a short walk from the hotel. For dining, we took the #2 tram from the hotel (we also walked once, but it is a bit far) to Leidseplein where there are restaurants galore! Any type of food you could possibly want at decent prices. We especially liked the all you can eat ribs, that are found at many locations, and the all you can eat chicken fajitas. A great place for Chinese fast food is called Wok and Walk across from McDonalds. Americans should be aware that you will not be served tap water in restaurants, and tea and coffee refills are also not possible without paying for a second cup. The only way to get water in a restaurant is to pay for mineral water. Since mineral water makes me blow up like a balloon, I smuggled in tap water from the hotel and sipped it when the waitress wasn't looking. • Another warning: Amsterdam has more bicycles than people. Beware of the bicycles. They come from every direction and are very dangerous. Getting off a bus, or out of a taxi is quite a risk. The bicycles are usually on the red brick area of the sidewalk, but it is so subtle that it rook us a day to figure it out. Once you understand where the bicycles are, it is a bit easier, but you must always be prepared for a surprise rider......and they do not slow down for pedestrians. The cars are easy to avoid, the bicycles are a challenge. •• I highly recommend Keukenhof tulip gardens if you are traveling in the Spring. For the best price, with no time restrictions, go to the Keukenhof website and buy a combi ticket that can be used on any day during the season. The combi ticket price is less than 1/3 of the price of packaged deals. It includes entrance admission, lets you have unlimited time in the garden, and includes a Connexxion bus ride (to and from the airport), and drops you off right at the front gate of the garden. Take the 197 bus to Schiphol airport from this hotel (4 euros each way) and then find the Connexxion bus to Keukenhof. The Connexxion bus runs about every 15 minutes till about 7pm. Give yourself several hours to enjoy this "Disneyland" of tulips. Be sure to go inside all the buildings so you don't miss anything. There are lots of restaurants, so no worries about food.

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.

Not a 4 Star hotel more a good 2 star hotel

Just a little too far out of town. New Year's eve we had a 40 minute walk into town as no trams. However, trams any other time were frequent and good service. Very safe area. The heating in our room was not working properly eventually got fixed after 3rd time asking for it to be fixed. Breakfast was horrible and far too expensive I'd advise going local. The noise in our room 106 was too loud - trams going past constantly and the TV could not be turned up so could not hear the TV. When leaving the reception did not even ask if we enjoyed our stay, a small thing but I reckon quite important. Kettle in room with one teabag and no milk. This is not a four star hotel - more a good 2 star. The man behind the bar was really friendly. I would not stay here again its too expensive and too many negatives.

Hotel OK

Very close to the city center, tram nearby. Hotel is good situated but unfortunately very noisy - it's on a crossing, so you can here every single car... It is not very cheap because in the price was no breakfast included. Extra charge for breakfast is very expensive.... The staff is ok, the ladies are very helpful but not very trained if you ask for sights.....

Mephis getaway

This hotel is fine. I really felt that it wasn't a four star hotel, really a three star. Poor facilities in the hotel. Some staff were very friendly. Service was generally very slow in the hotel, check in and check out, bar staff and breakfast. Hotel room was ok, small bathroom. If you are looking for a cheap basic place to rest your head it is for you.

Good and clean, 4 star level

Generally a good stay. Nice and clean hotel. Typical four star quality, clean but not very modern in terms of amenities. New towels but not sheets every day. No toiletries. Friendly staff and no problems during the stay. A/C in the room. Hotel is in a very nice area, lots of nice cafes. Location is 10 minutes from town centre by tram. Recommended, good quality for the price!

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!

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.

Location and comfort

We just returned from a great vacation in Amsterdam, we stayed at the Memphis hotel which I highly recommend for its location, walking distance to the museums, about 10 minutes, room size and comfort, and the price was right. I would definitely choose this hotel again!

Short weekend break

No problems at all. Very handy for the 16 tram that only takes 15 minutes to get you to Dam Square. Had a room on the second floor that was on the same side of building as the tram lines however we were not troubled by noise. All staff we met were friendly and helpful.
