We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Rijks, Stedelijk and Van Gogh Museums. The hotel is located on a canal but our room had a view of a side street. The only downside of our experience was that there was loud construction noise that started at 7:30 am on the side street. Also, there was major construction at the cross street. We gave the room comfort a score of 4 because the room was dimly lit but overall we were pleased with our stay.

Don't ask me why we had a flight arriving at 6am, but we did. smh My jet lagged 9 year old daughter was exhausted and asleep in the lobby where we planned to hang out for a while and then take a walk while we waited on check in. Well Jaffar noticed our situation and without me asking made arrangements for us to check in early. I was so grateful for his thoughtfulness and this kind gesture. The entire staff was very helpful and friendly. Everyone spoke English which was a bonus for me. The rooms were on the smaller side but plenty big enough for the two of us and our luggage. The hotel rents bikes but didnt have one for a child at the time so we went a few blocks down to a different shop and rented bikes for 24 hours. This took us as far as the Anne Frank house and Red Light District. The next day we bought day passes for the tram which took us everywhere. Both very affordable.

Easy walking distance to museum district, cafes etc. You can get a hop on and hop off canal barge a few yards away or a canal trip. Useful for visiting other sites and parts of the city. However a good walker can cover if all by foot.
Please remember that to visit Anne Frank's house you need to do it online at time you book your holiday otherwise you gave to queue as only open between 3.30 pm to 6.09 pm and the queues are usually around the block. Expect to wait for 2 hours.
As far as the hotel is concerned we had two rooms. There is daily cleaning and replacement of towels. The shower was actually powerful. A nice change from the usual dribble you get with hot water. However in both rooms the extractor fan in the bathrooms didn't work and the glass shelf below the mirror sloped at a steep angle. We had rooms that were around an air shaft rather than looking over the street/canal. It was very quiet but had to close the window because of smell from what must have been drains at bottom of that air shaft.
Overall for three stars you only want some where to sleep and use as a base for site seeing.
The staff at reception were very helpful when the safe in the room decided not to work the night before we left. They are on duty 24 hours a day. Thee is also a luggage room by reception to leave your bags after checkout so you can do ima bit more site seeing before you are picked up for airport.
We used the shuttle bus. If you got a hotel near grand central station use the train

"Nice hotel - centrally located. Excellent staff!"
We spent four nights at the Leonardo and were very happy there. We were booked into a main floor room and the wifi was very poor, when we mentioned this they offered to move us to another room for our remaining three nights. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and accommodating.

The hotel is situated on the edge of the museum quarter and is very close to the main tram stops, shops, canal cruises, museums and vondlepark.
We were away to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and the concierge desk were key in finding us an excellent Michelin starred restaurant for our anniversary. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Bord'Eau and a complimentary bottle of champagne from the Marriott to help us celebrate.

Home to Amsterdam’s big three museums, the Museum Quarter includes the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk. The former is the huge national art collection. The Stedelijk is largely cutting-edge post-1945 art. The Van Gogh is home to 200 of the artist’s paintings. Nearby Leidseplein is the centre of Amsterdam’s more raucous nightlife, with famous clubs such as Paradiso and Melkweg. By day, visit the Art Deco Café Americain.
