Don't expect air con, don't expect a fridge, don't expect coffee/tea facilities in your room. This really is a two star hotel and to be honest i'd rate it one star. The staff were very friendly. As you enter the hotel you are faced with an extremely steep flight of stairs ,so, if you're disabled or unable to climb stairs then forget this hotel. The same is said for the stairs within the hotel itself as they are extremely steep. Fortunately there is a lift BUT, it does not serve the breakfast room which is on the ground floor, so, if you're having breakfast you HAVE to tackle the steps. The website for this hotel does paint a very glossy picture, leaving you wondering where the two stars apply. This is discovered once you enter reception and then your room. If you are unfortunate, like us, to have noisy neighbours then the whole experience is made worse. This hotel is best catered for young people who aren't fussed about comfort. As we entered the hotel we had to side step the people smoking on the steps which was a regular occurrence ,so much so, that they could make it a feature ! :) If you're anywhere above 5ft then expect to be extremely cramped when on the loo, theres a facing wall that loves to hit your knees. The staff were friendly though. Our first room, a family room (number 303) was so hot !!...and there was just one small window that could be opened but gave no relief at all. I did mention this and the next day they moved us to another family room (number 109) which had a balcony and doors that opened thankfully. Breakfast consists of a buffet of cereals, continental meats and two types of sliced cheese and various spreads. In addition there is ample bread for toast making and lots of hard boiled eggs. Would be nice to have seen some sausages and alternate options for eggs but this is certainly a no frills hotel where they do not cook anything(except boiling hard boiled eggs) there is also a coffee machine and fruit juice type drinks. This is a two star hotel so expect two star facilities. Just would have been nice to have air con at the very least. Location is fantastic though, right there in the middle of the museum quarter with easy access to trams.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Max Brown Museum Square settles down at the Museum Square, known by locals as the central hub of the city. Location is everything in a city like Amsterdam and the Museum Square, located South of the old city, has it al. You are just a block away from the world famous Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum, escape outdoors to the Vondelpark where you can join locals for a lovely Picnic or go for some high end shopping in the PC Hooftstraat, van Baerlestraart and Beethovenstraat. The Museum Quarter (the neighbourhood around the Museum Square) is, despite all its touristic attractions, largely a residential neighbourhood with tree-lined streets and gorgeous 19th-century architecture. ... more less
