The room 45 was so tiny, that a cant belive it was not a joke. Nothing close to the photos. The receptinonist was not so friendly. I am expecting beter service an beter rooms. The stairs was terrifing.

A great hotel for a couple of days in Amsterdam. Quiet, but in walking distance to the center. For a City hotel in this price range, the rooms were quite big. I very much enjoyed the Breakfast, the friendly staff and -something rare in most hotels- the bed was very comfortable.

I had a quick one night stay at the Hotel Asterisk which was a nice inner suburban Amsterdam stay. The hotel was nicely laid out and, mercifully, had a window which actually opened for fresh air.

Excellent little hotel. Staff very friendly & helpful. Room very clean & comfortable. Breakfasts very good. Great location - close to tram stops, less than 10 min walk to Van Gogh museum. Easy to get to airport via short tram ride to Airport bus stop.

Could have given this place 2 or 3 stars but the staff brought it up to a 4. I'll start with the bad points. The bedroom (No. 45) was tiny! I'm a tall guy and just about fitted into the bed without my head and feet hitting against the side walls. I am 6ft 2", anyone taller than that will...

This little hotel is amazing. the staff is very friendly and welcoming, they have a great sense of hospitality and professionalism. The room was bigger than expected, very clean and organized, had all the amenities required for a pleasant stay. The shower was perfect, they had both hot and cold water which is not always the case in other hotels....

I was stranded in Amsterdam for a night and got the last room in the hotel, a single bed with a separate (but still private) bathroom down the hall. The price was good and everything was clean and modern. They have a very nice breakfast and garden to eat it in. The staff were so helpful with everything I needed,...
