I loved my stay at hotel asterisk, I would definitely stay here again. I was able to walk to museums during the day and then it was close to bars and restaurants for the evening. It is a budget friendly, small room but clean and nice.

Located in a quiet area, this Hotel is very clean, and the Staff are friendly and very helpful. The Tram stop is close by. The room was lovely and a big bathroom with fab shower. We did not have breakfast here so can't comment. The little gift on leaving was a very nice thought. Thank you for a great stay.

Very good price performance. Such a very friendly services, at the counter, during breakfast. This is how service should be! At at the end a small present to take at home. How client friendly. The hotel is located in a very quiet street in the city center. Just 15 minutes walk from the shoping area in Amsterdam. Go there!

Super helpful and friendly staff, amazing breakfast, quiet and clean room. Located in a quiet area, but close enough to walk into the city center. Tickets for trams, museums and such is available to buy (even with a small discount) in the reception.
