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. Ours was on the second floor and the paint was chipped in places on the walls and there were some stains on the bed...

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'. Then why above title???? Because we booked a 'superior' room, and frankly it was not big...

This hotel was amazing! The location was incredible. Even though it was not in the city centre it was central to most tourist attractions. The staff were friendly and very happy to help with any requests. We were however given some incorrect information about the transport home which almost caused us to miss our flight so be careful and check...

This hotel used the be a former boys school and now purposes the hotel for education/internship for students. The interns 'run' the hotel. This might not be for everyone but I liked the experience and it allows students to properly 'practice' on the guests! Be patient 😊 The design of the hotel in beautiful and restored in its original state....

Really nice hotel, stayed for business. Only issue I had was the lighting, very dark in the rooms and the lighting itself was not only confusing but faulty. Was hard to just get a side lamp on without either having everything off or all on! Staff very friendly, drinks fab . Breakfast was also very nice.

The terrace at the College Hotel doesn't at all give you the impression you're in the busy city center of Amsterdam at all! Service was swift, and the combination of the historic building and its contemporary decorated interior is very tasteful.

A real gem in expensive Amsterdam, nestled between the museums area, and lively De Pijp with its lovely boutiques and restaurants. Yes, the employees are students in training, but they were all smiles and eager to make our stay perfect. Our second floor room with a view on the main street was perfect, roomy, quiet and comfortable.

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.
