Centrally located in the chic Museum Quarter, just a stone throw away from the bustling and lively centre of Amsterdam. Behind the facade of a large, impressive town mansion you find the Poet Hotel Amsterdam, a brand new design tourist-class hotel with far more facilities than you would expect from a hotel of this category. The hotel is situated in the prestigious Jan Luijkenstraat. Jan Luijken was an artist from the 17th century who inspired them in the design for the totally new concept hotel. The Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum are all only a few yards from the hotel on the Museum square where also the world famous Concertgebouw is situated. Around the corner you will find the prestigious PC Hooft street with its top designer shops. The Vondelpark, Amsterdam's green heart, and the well known Leidseplein entertainment district, with the Holland Casino, are in the immediate vicinity. The Albert Cuyp market and the Heineken Brewery is less than a 10 minute walk away. The hotel also offers free breakfast to its guests.

NO HOT SHOWER

This hotel is not bad but not good either. Checked in at 14.00, they charged me for wifi and it was really slow. first thing tried to take a shower. I got Luke warm water. For about 5 min then cold water. Tried to take another shower at 19.00, still no hot water. It was 6 degrees that night and there is no way to control the heat. So the room was cold all night. They did give me a good blanket. But getting out of bed it was really cold. Then next morning at 9.00 Still no hot water. Then attended the breakfast buffet that is included in the price, it was your typical continental breakfast, except no coffee or tea. You had to buy coffee and tea from the cafe in the hotel and the prices were 250% more than anywhere I have bought coffee in Amsterdam. Then when I check out they hit me with the city tax fee.

Nice modern style hotel, good for short stay

Nice hotel with helpful staff, near to transport in a quiet road. Rooms are modern with good storage, kept clean and functional. Built in safe for valuables. Even has a lift, which not all Amsterdam hotels have. Been there twice and will book again next time.

Perusmatkaajan hotelli

Huoneemme oli todella pieni, mutta ihan siisti ja me kyllä pärjäsimme siinäkin. Aamiaisella oli jopa leikkeleitä eli ihan hyvä. Sijainti rauhallisella kadulla Museumpleinin lähellä ja ratikalla kätevästi pääsi kulkemaan. Myös lentokenttäbussi ajaa aivan läheltä.

Kein Hotel zum Weiterempfehlen

Das Hotel macht auf der Homepage einen modernen, sympathischen Eindruck. Ist man aber vor Ort, wird dieser rasch getrübt. Alles ist sehr minimalistisch. Die Zimmer sind extrem klein und es fehlt überall an Ablage- oder Aufhängemöglichkeiten. In unserem Zimmer war zudem das Fenster defekt und es konnte darum nicht mehr geöffnet werden. Ohne Klimaanlage bedeutete dies eine unerträgliche Hitze im Zimmer und sehr unangenehme Nächte, da auch bei der Anschaffung der Betten gespart wurde - alles synthetisch. Als wir das Personal an der Reception darauf aufmerksam machten, wurde dies mit einem Schulterzucken quittiert. Alles in allem ein günstiges Hotel an guter Lage, aber ohne Komfort und einer lieblosen Führung.

Kohtuullisen hyvä hotelli

Hotellin sijainti museokorttelin vieressä ja vaivattomien kulkuyhteyksien varrella oli erinomainen. Myös henkilökunta ja huoneen siisteys olivat hyvät. Viihtyisyyttä vähensi ilmastoinnin huonous ja erittäin ohut ovi, eli huone oli kuuma ja käytävällä kulkeminen kuului todella selkeästi huoneeseen. Muuten rauhallinen hotelli, jossa sai hyvät unet.

Toimimaton keskinkertaisuus

Pieni, toimimaton huone. Ei mitään paikkaa tavaroille, esim. Kylpyhuoneessa ei minkäänlaista koukkua/telinettä pyyhkeille. Erinomainen sijainti.
