    The Heart of Amsterdam

    Fantastic location to museums, restaurants, cafes, and some of the most beautiful canal vistas. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to for an weekend in Amsterdam.

    A must stay !

    What an amazing family run hotel! The staff here were great and so friendly. They couldn’t do enough for us, and even had little gifts and a upgrade. In a great location also. I was so happy with my stay here that I’ll be definitely coming back to stay here again. What an amazing family they are !

  • 2.0.Poor

    As you know, due to Covid-19, we were unable to travel to Amsterdam, thus unable to stay at the hotel. At the time of booking the hotel we were also booked on a cruise out of Amsterdam so made a reservation under the “no cancellation “option. Due to Covid-19, both the cruise &air were cancelled and full refunds issued. However, the hotel stood fast on their “policy” and were not even receptive to considering a partial refund. We tried several times to reason with them, due to the fact this situation was completely out of our hands, but to no avail. I might also mention Expedia staff tried on our behalf as well. Any correspondence from the hotel came with no name, title, etc which also seemed strange to us, so overall, we felt the whole issue was handled very poorly and, needless to say, we are very disappointed in the hotels attitude.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This property was unbelievable - we booked to stay here in May 2020 and unfortunately booked and paid for a non-refundable reservation. Owing to the worldwide covid travel ban, we were unable to fly here and leave our country. Despite there being a Netherlands travel ban also at the same time, the hotel refused to change the dates or give us credit. I realise that the booking was non refundable and we would not receive a refund, but given a global travel ban which included the Netherlands, I cannot believe that any reputable hotel would not offer a credit or change of dates. Absolutely disgraceful.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    What a lovely and cute hotel! I had an excellent stay here. I would definitely recommend it and would love to come back again myself. It was a great value - an extremely close walk to countless tourist hotspots (Heineken Experience, museum district, great restaurants, etc.). Staff were extremely friendly and beyond helpful. The room was actually a bit bigger than I expected and had everything I needed. I didn’t have the proper converter for the outlet and they gave me one to use. (*Side note mostly to American travelers: there is no thermostat in the room, which was a first for me but was never an issue temperature-wise during my visit in early March. They do leave a fan in the closet for you to plug in if you want to use it.) A few nice touches during my stay included a welcome beverage (choice of Prosecco or orange juice) and complimentary snacks in the lobby available in the afternoons (mint or lemon infused water, fresh fruit, peanuts and speculoos cookies). Breakfast was available for an additional charge of €7.50 (yogurt, dry cereal, fresh fruit and a choice of what looked like several pastries / bread). They also have an automatic coffee machine that can make americanos, lattes, etc. If you just want coffee with no breakfast, they offer it for €2. I opted for this on two of the mornings because there is no coffee available in the rooms (just tea). Again, I had a really nice stay and would highly recommend Hotel Asterisk! It is a hidden gem in Amsterdam.

    Awesome Staff, clean, good area.

    I travelled solo spending 4 days in Amsterdam. Hotel Asterisk had all what i need to explore the city. Nice area, staff was so cool and friendly. Augustin gave me all the information regarding the city and deeply explained the main attractions. Thank you so much for the nice hospitality.
