The Asterisk hotel is well located a little east of the Rijksmuseum and within easy walking distance of plenty of restaurants and coffee shops, and near a tram stop. The staff are very freindly and helpful, room small but totally clean, with a big window that opens securely and a lovely view onto a tree lined courtyard, beds very comfortable. Shared bath immaculately clean, lots of hot water. Breakfast had a good choice of food and was good quality. No complaints, an excellent budget hotel, would definitely book here again.
