“Most convenient boutique hotel to museum quarter”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Other than noise from our upstairs neighbors, I cannot find any fault with the Aalders Hotel. We had a large room with a balcony and it is so convenient to walk the few blocks to the museum quarter and the tram line to Central Station is just a few blocks in the other direction. Every one of the staff was polite and helpful with suggestions for nearby restaurants. It's a calm place to regroup after busy Amsterdam.

Located just close to the big Amsterdam Museums, the Aalders hotel is in a quiet street, a few meters away from Tram / bus stations (direct connection to Schiphol: 5 Euros; direct connection to Dam: 2.8 Euros), and just one stop away from the nice Leidseplein.
Rooms are adequate - nothing fancy but comfortable enough - perfectly clean, and the hotel has a friendly staff. My only "buts" would be the lack of safe-box in the room and the irregular quality of the (otherwise free) WiFi connection inside the room.
For the rest, excellent value for the price paid, I would certainly repeat there, both for business trips (like this one) or for leisure travel.

We thought this hotel was great in every way. An easy bus ride from the airport, close to museums and an easy walk to many major attraction. Our room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful. We thought the breakfast was really good too!
Our stay was all we would have hoped for and we'd have no hesitation in returning.

We stayed at Hotel Aalders last weekend and were impressed by the great location, comfortable room, good breakfast and friendly staff. The quiet, central location made all the Amsterdam attractions an easy walk away. And getting to the airport couldn't be easier - just catch the 197 bus from the stop 200yds from the hotel.

Very comfortable, good breakfast, excellent location-- couldn't be better. It's a very quiet neighbourhood but unfortunately, the walls are very thin. The TV from the next room disturbed us, and I don't think they had it on very loud.

Return visit to hotel Aalders did not disappoint. Room comfortable and clean. Good beds, plenty of hot water and good shower. Staff still friendly and efficient and very helpful. Location could not be better, 5 minutes from main art museums.
