I liked the idea of being ecological, but the room itself was not so big, very basic, and there was no special atmosphere (which I expected). You could also hear the people taking in the room next door.

Have just returned from a short break in Amsterdam having stayed at this lovely hotel. Very comfortable, easy on the eye rooms and very helpful and informed staff. Very well located for those who wish to see the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum. Oh, and some very nice restaurants nearby too. Deserves 4 and a half stars. Highly recommended.

Two things differentiate this hotel from any other I've stayed at. First it wears it's green credentials firmly on its sleeve. Secondly, it flirts with you. Let me explain.

Everything possible is eco, but without compromising comfort and style. It feels different, feels different and if copied by all hotels would make a difference.

Flirty notices welcome you to your room, invite you to keep your towel a second night and hop on one of the hotel bikes outside the front door.

Add a great Dutch breakfast and a very convenient location close to Museum Plein and you have it.

Amsterdam is probably my favourite city in Europe, but tends to be overpriced for hotels. Most rooms I've had in the past have been almost comically tiny, with child-sized beds, often up five flights of narrow staircases. Conscious Hotel Museum Square gave me a spacious room with a very comfortable double bed, on the ground floor, no less! No noise from other guests, and the busy street outside didn't have heavy traffic at night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast (reasonably priced) was good, but be sure to ask for eggs, bacon etc. if not immediately available. All in all, a very nice stay. Although it's high time to change the carpeting in the rooms.

We chose this hotel based on reviews and photos. Excellent location, extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Room and bath were spacious, bright and airy, nice view. However, there was no comfortable chair, austere furnishings. The bath had 2 bath towels and 1 hand towel-period. No kleenex and the only toiletries were two plastic liquid soap dispensers that did not work well. The elevator, under repair, was turned off every night at 11 PM. Wifi adequate.

The hotel is in a great location, and one can easily access public transport, making it really easy to get to anywhere in the city. The 197 bus from the airport stops right outside too. The rooms were very comfortable (especially the beds!) and clean, and it was interesting to read about the ethos behind them, with the table made of recycled coffee cups and the shower pumping air to reduce the amount of water used. We stayed here for the Amsterdam marathon as it's pretty close to the Olympic stadium. Most of all though, the staff were extremely helpful, ready to give directions or print items for us, or help us with anything else we might need. Great hotel for a weekend break in Amsterdam.

We chose to stay in this hotel because of its position which was excellent for visiting the Rijks and Van Gogh museums. It is easily accessible by bus from the airport and by tram into the centre of Amsterdam.
The rooms have an eco theme and were comfortable, quiet and clean. The lighting was subdued which could make the room appear dark. The beds have memory foam mattresses which were lovely. Breakfast was not included in the price but was freshly prepared each morning. The staff were pleasant and friendly and happy to recommend restaurants in the area. There were plenty of restaurant choices in the area.
We are happy to recommend this hotel but we would have liked drinks facilities in our room.
