Nice hotel in Amsterdam near Het Muziektheatre?

I am a newly retired attorney who will be spending 9 nights in Amsterdam this winter for opera productions at the Het Muziektheater.

I am looking for a 3-4 star hotel within 10-15 min. walking distance of the Muziektheater. Do not want to pay for unnecessary luxury but will pay for quality, convenience, and helpful service and quiet location. Should have an elevator and comfortable writing desk area with WIFI.

Are breakfast buffets generally available in Amsterdam as thy are in Germany? At an extra price?

Note: I did look in the forums first but most of the posts on Amsterdam are several years old.

Thanks much!

There are lots of hotels around there. Try the Eden Hotel Amsterdam. Breakfast is normally extra and expensive in Amsterdam hotels.

Have you though about apartment rentals

I agree with Ron about a flat. If you want a hotel, I like this place. 650 m or 10 minute walk. GREAT area.

Well the Mövenpick is attached to it, you can't get much closer and I guess it must have great views. No idea what it's like on the inside though. I live here so never stayed in a hotel, but can comment on locations if you have questions about specific ones.

DoubleTree is also close but I read some dubious reports about its service, especially after a complaint.

I don't know how far Lloyd Hotel is on foot, always seems like a really nice hotel to me. Google Maps can calculate walking times if you use 'Get directions' and the walking person symbol. (I'm not on a computer now so cannot do it for you and post a link.)

And I guess staying in a more residential area with some restaurants and cafes around could be nicer than there right along the water. And an apartment allows you to do some laundry, and make your own breakfasts instead of having to go out all the time or pay heaps for a hotel breakfast.

Also see the Top Questions on the right: Which area should I stay in; and Can you recommend a cheap hotel (which leads to info about bidding on 4 or 5 star hotels).

Hi,

I've stayed occasionally at NH Schiller, which was OK and reasonable value. However, it is NOT in a quiet location. Edwn hotel that was mentioned before is indeed in a quieter location, but I haven't stayed there myself. An even quieter locations is the NH Doelen, but it looks as if it needs a refit (once again I haven't stayed there myself)

I guess you wil be going for one of the two complete cycles of The Ring of the Nibelungs, a super production and sadly the last time the famous stage sets can be seen. Afterwards they'll dump them. I once attended such complete cycle, sitting high above the stage. Simply unforgettable.

This is VERY popular. I once sat 5 hours in a row for a last ticket for Götterdämmerung (second cycle) and when it was my turn all tickets were gone.

I also suggest an apartment.

If you google for Apartment Muziektheater you will find a few websites where you can make a booking.

One says how many meters it is from the Muziektheater. Also hotels.

Good luck and enjoy !!
