    language Review by Dan from USA
    A wonderful hotel with very helpful staff

    I would like to thank the staff of the asterisk hotel and recommend them to other travelers. I had booked a single room because i had thought i would be traveling alone. At the last moment, my wife decided to accompany me. When i arrived, the staff informed me that they could not let the two of us stay in a single room. But rather than leaving it at that, the staff rearranged the accommodations of a guest who had booked a double room for one occupant (this other guest was happy to oblige, thankfully). Whereas other hotels may have suspected that i was trying to stiff them the cost of a double room (which was not the case), the staff graciously and without any hassle arranged for our very pleasant stay. In addition to the very kind staff, the breakfast, rooms, location, etc. Were all extremely good, especially for the price. i wholeheartedly recommend the hotel asterisk to other travelers, though please note that the hotel has a strict no smoking/no drugs policy. No one minds, of course, if you consume drugs/alcohol elsewhere (i did)--this policy appears to be designed to keep the hordes of brit/american drug tourists from congregating in the hotel, which i can say from my experience elsewhere is not always so pleasant.

    no smoking

    even though i do smoke, i still like to stay here. i love that it is on a very very very quiet street. the rooms are nice, roomy enough. they have a decent breakfast if you can wake up in time. and it's close enough to everything. i don;t like smoking in my hotel room anyway.

    good value for money

    we had a pleasant stay for 2 nights. 4 rooms per floor, 2 with bathroom, 2 without + one bathroom per floor. rooms are basic but clean. quiet and safe street, which can be easily reached by tram from city center. friendly receptionists. basic continental breakfast buffet.

    convenient and quiet

    nothing super special at asterisk, but it's in a quiet street, easy walking distance to anything in the center, and very close to de pijp. breakfast is just cheese, bread, and cereal, but that's fine. perfectly nice owners, although i've barely had to deal with them once checked in. clean rooms, adequate beds. ask for the pay-for-four-days-get-the-fifth-free deal, and ask also for any coupons they can give you (we got a free canal cruise). i've stayed there three times and would happily go back, primarily because it's very cheap. closest coffeeshop is the lovely, local yoyo, and katsu is also not far (i've smoked in the rooms with the windows open, but technically it's not allowed), lots of good restaurants just north off fredricksplein or south in de pijp.

    just got back from the hotel asterisk

    i'll give it one less star after this visit. nothing wrong, just not 4 stars in the other building. it's still clean and neat. we had 3 rooms, 2 in the other building (2 doors down the street). and one in the main building. it was a all around good trip. the only problem was, the heat went out one morning. but they had it fixed in about an hour. all in all, it's still a nice place to stay. later, shorty

    it's a very nice hotel!

    i stayed there last year, and getting ready to go back in a few days. the room last year was very big, and very clean. it was remodeled a few years ago. you get free dutch breakfast if you pay cash when checking in. they have free internet access in the lobby. 85 euro per night, and i'm staying for 8 nights but only have to pay for 7 nights.

    i've been here

    i stayed here feb 2001 and thought the room we got was clean but nothing unusual or huge. the hotels on a nice quiet residential street and is good for geting a decent nights sleep. they dont like spliff smoking but you could just hang out the window.i'd go back here but it always seems fully booked. a place for a couple to stay rather than a gang of stoners i suspect.
