"Street noise but nice."
Staff were lovely and friendly. Great location near lots of bars and attractions. Very comfortable bed. Only problem was I stayed on the first floor which looked directly on to the street, I had to keep the curtains closed as there were work men directly outside, they also woke me very early as they were noisy and had a big crane working from around 7am :( would have been a nicer stay in a different room.

"Location, location, location"
Just returned from a great stay at the Owl. Perfect location, 5 minutes from the Leidseplein (bus & tram hub), 5 minutes from Rijks, 5 minutes from Vondel Park. Our room was on the back of the building and you could see the Park beyond one row of buildings. Wonderfully quiet location, probably the quietest European hotel room I've ever stayed in. The wife did somethng to her back and there was a Chiropractor right around the corner. The breakfast (bread, meat, cheese, cereal) is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. For 150-160 Euro a night there's no better value in AMS.

The hotel is really nice and comfortable. There is an elevator and that´s great since Amsterdam is terrible because of too steep stairways. They also have a baggage room. The most important thing is the really nice staff, they are awesome!

"Cute hotel, good price."
The hotel staff was wonderful. They helped us find something to eat and explained how to get around. The hotel room was pretty basic, but we did not come to Amsterdam to hang out in our room. The bathroom was clean and spacious. The beds were ok. Carpet was very stained, but otherwise clean (vacuumed). It was quiet and we were able to get a good night's sleep. The room did not not have any offensive smells. The hotel was within very close walking distance of the Van Gogh museum, tram, many other attractions, and a nice little grocery store. My favorite part was the smell of breakfast in the morning. We did not eat the breakfast, but it looked good. Their dining area faces a beautiful little courtyard. A very sweet little cat lives in the hotel so if you are allergic this may be a concern.

"Good location"
Now that I've had a chance to explore Amsterdam, and know how walkable this city is, I would not stay in the Owl Hotel again. I stayed there on a recommendation from a friend, depsite the fact that I had seen more affordable places online that looked nicer...so I accept responsibilty for my having chosen the place. The two biggest positives about the Owl are that the staff is very nice and helpful when needed, and the location is withing walking distance of the entire inner city for one who walks easily. The drawbacks for me were that the room was very tiny for the price, and it seems as if the owner must skimp a bit on things like wall hangings, etc. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked, the room was very warm due to the time of year and it was difficult to get good ventiilation even with the window opened. Also, during my 4 night stay, I only bothered to go down for the 'complimentary' breakfast the first morning and the last, because the quality was not that great. I feel that perhaps the Owl Hotel needs to be updated in its furnishings and food, especially for the prices that they charge. I did enjoy my stay in Amsterdam overall, as it's a gorgeous, very friendly city. I pland on returning, and next time I'll follow my own counsel and rent a little flat instead.

"My first visit to Amsterdam."
It's a great stay for a solo traveler. Hotel staff had been really friendly and helpful. Sadly I didn't manage to catch their name. Do note that the hotel is an old building so there isn't air-condition but only in the day you will feel the stuffiness other than that the hotel is great. Rijksmuseum is SO near I had to visit 3times. Early morning sunrise, normal hour and sunset. To be honest the hotel is really accessible to everywhere I wanted to visit. With cycling it's really accessible however I chose not to cycle. I was on foot for a few days. Every must-go places are all walkable distance.

"Nice place for a Leidseplein night out."
Nice little hotel just a few mins from Leidseplein. The staff at reception are helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and the toilets are great but the room was stuffy and I couldn't open the windows. Also there are no power points at the desk - so plugging in your laptop is a problem.

"Perfect for a weekend break, great location"
Great, safe and quiet location just off the main road and near vondelpark, if you're looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel this is perfect. Rooms are immaculately clean, modern bathrooms, TVs on wall (and even gets UK channels!), comfortable beds, breakfast was good (buffet of fruit, croissants, meats, cheeses, bread etc), and wifi was adequate. Hotel isn't that modern but personally I liked the homey feel, it felt more welcoming and in keeping with the city. Only complaint is that there are no tea/coffee facilities in the room or downstairs during the day. After a long day of walking we really wanted a sit down and a cup of tea!

"A quiet, welcoming hotel in the Museum Quarter."
We were so pleased to have found this lovely hotel in a quiet residential district of Amsterdam, near the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum, with easy access to other areas of Amsterdam either by foot or by tram. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice, and hot drinks were available at all times. The lounge area was a relaxing place to sit in the evening to plan the next day's activities and there was a rack with leaflets with information about places of interest. The hotel was very clean and the staff gave us a warm welcome and sound advice on the best way to visit the many interesting places.

"Older style hotel in good location."
Stayed at Owl hotel for 4 nights recently and had a pretty enjoyable stay. The hotel is in an older building with a nice little garden and bar area. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and helped us with a few requests (such as printing services). The rooms are a little on the tired side but comfortable and clean and the bathrooms have had a recent renovation so are quite modern and fresh (in our room at least). The bed was comfortable and the linen and towels were clean. The walls are not particularly thick and we could hear conversations and other noises from the neighboring rooms. It seems like every door slam from the floor could be heard crystal clear (or someone next to us had a very annoying habit of entering and exiting there room 10 times a night). We also had a powerpoint beside the bed that didn't work and the only other one in the room was behind a large cupboard which was pretty awkward to get to. It's a 5 minute walk to the Leidseplein area which has access to heaps of bars and restaurants. Museums and a range of transport options are also within walking distance. Overall the hotel is pleasant and we would probably stay again, but just hope to get less annoying neighbors.

"Nettes Hotel in ruhiger Lage"
Das Hotel liegt ruhig, trotzdem ist man in ca 5 min zu Fuß am rummeligen Leidseplein und damit mitten im Zentrum und an den Grachten. Man merkt, dass das Hotel nicht mehr das jüngste ist. Die Zimmer sind sehr klein. Uns hat es nicht gestört, sind wir doch nur zum Schlafen im Hotel gewesen. Alles ist jedoch tipptopp sauber und die Angestellten sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Gutes Frühstücksbuffet für niederländische Verhältnisse, im Preis enthalten.

Prima gelegen hotel tov het Leidse plein. Mijn voornaamste min punt is de kwaliteit/prijs verhouding, maar dat had misschien ook te maken met het feit dat ik in een weekend tijdens het paasverlof geweest ben. Vooral de badkamer (douche) was erg klein. Maar voor de rest zeker een charmant hotel.

Zweckmäßiges Hotel nur einen kurzen Fußweg vom Leidseplein entfernt. Dort jede Menge Bars und Restaurants vorhanden und Straßenbahnverbindungen in alle Richtungen. Das kleine Hotel liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße und ist zweckmäßig ausgestattet zu einem für Amsterdam recht günstigen Preis. Ideal für einen Städtetrip, bei dem der Aufenthalt im Hotel meist sehr knapp ausfällt.
