Well the name of the hotel is self explanatory what it originally was. The concept and the design of the hotel is cool. I would say that young including those young at heart and trendy people will love this hotel. The hotel is chic and sleek. I love the lighting of the hotel though it's too dark but it gives...

4 star boutique hotel Ideally placed for all the museums. Amazing interior and very quiet. A couple of faulty lights in our room but dealt with very fast. The hotel is staffed by students from nearby colleges who work alongside professionals. An excellent idea. We didn't have breakfast here as there is so much choice nearby.

This Hotel is located in a former school building in the more quite area of Amsterdam South. Walking distance to Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Rijksmuseum and the luxury shopping street of PC Hoofstraat. The interior is dark, colorful, rich and gives you a very nice atmosphere. Do keep in mind that this is an educational hotel, meaning the staff...

Stayed two nights at this hotel. Location is good for De pijp, museum area and much nicer place to stay than in central Amsterdam. Rooms are traditional but look a little bit worn around the edges.

Excellent location if you want to visit the fantastic museums Amsterdam has, Rijks etc... within walking distance. Converted old school, fully brought up to today's standards, good atmosphere, fun bar, excellent restaurant, very helpful personnel. No sign of the personnel being 'students in training'.

This hotel used the be a former boys school and now purposes the hotel for education/internship for students. The interns 'run' the hotel.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
