The family hotel in Amsterdam city centre is close to the Rijksmuseum. The famous Leidseplein is within walking distance.

The non-smoking, family hotel Asterisk Amsterdam is located in the city, with the Rijksmuseum & Van Goghmuseum nearby and the famous Amsterdam nightlife within walking distance.

The Asterisk Hotel Amsterdam is located in a building built in 1892, but has been completely renovated and equipped with all modern conveniences. Although the accommodation has been fully renovated and restored, including a lift in the main building, the 19th-century building maintains much of its original character and has a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

Asterisk offers a unique range of accommodation, from more economical basic rooms right through to luxury en-suite rooms. Children are welcome (the hotel can provide cots and high-chairs). All the rooms are equipped with a television, telephone and safe, and hairdryers and kettles are available at the reception. Here you also find an internet-terminal, which is available for hotel guests of Asterisk Amsterdam.

 "Sleeping quality, breakfast and location very good"
Beds are comfortable, no noise from outside, breakfast buffet is very good.
The rooms are "old" , so it is a bit smelly and the waterflow of the shower was very poor. Ok, if you have to spend only a few days with few luggage, because the stairs are very narrow and steep and our room with three beds was quite small.

 "not bad cheap option"
It's a 2 star hotel, and given that it's a good option if you are booking last minute and all other hotels are either way too expensive or cheap hostels. I booked my room only one week in advance for a weekend in June - should be pretty bad for Amsterdam. I still got single room (but without toilet) for some EUR140 with breakfast and all taxes for two nights. I guess ine would get much better value for money if go for double ensuite room (looked 3x bigger on the scheme?) It's not a fancy hotel, rather dated and very basic. Not bad location at all though - just by the Heineken Experience. I had no problem at all with cleanliness. And the dining room is really nice and pleasant :)

 "Small nice and clean hotel"
It was a very small hotel With a very steep stair to the floors but it was also an elevator. The staff was very nice and helpful. The beakfast was really good, lots to choose from. Clean and big room. But it was a bit noisy from the other hotelguests, the isolation was not so good. The location was good, Close to the Heiniken and Rijksmuseum, and it was easy and cheap to take the tram to city center, you can buy tickets in the reception.

 "Hotel Asterisk"
This hotel is well suited for visiting the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. It is very basic---small bar of soap and towels, but it was clean and the breakfast was good served in a light nicely decorated area. The lift was very slow if more than one person wanted to use it.

 "October in Amsterdam"
Hotel is in a good location, in a quiet residential area with easy transport links to the centre and other places of interest. Good eating places and supermarkets near by. Service was excellent, not too much trouble to make us up a breakfast to take on our early morning trips. Breakfast was good and dining room is clean and bright. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we visit.

 "Good Hotel!"
We stayed for three nights at this hotel in September 2012. Only 10 (ish) minutes from Central Station by tram, in a quiet neighbourhood, very close to the Heineken Brewery. We were welcomed by a very frielndly and helpful guy (Victor) in perfect English, of course. We were given directions for walking to points of interest, where to hire a bike and recommendations for good bars and restaurants. The room was in a building across the street, so not in the actual hotel itself. The room was reasonably spacious for a city centre place. It could not be described as swish or fancy; it felt a bit seventies to me. But it was clean and the beds were made up each day.The breakfast was a limited offering in the "contenental" style - bread, cheese, ham, some natural yogurt, museli, etc (we would have liked some more fruit). That said, it was perfectly adequate, so this is not a complaint, merely an observation.We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again.
