The two-star Hotel Asterisk offers basic, affordable rooms in a central yet quiet location. The family-run hotel commands two separate buildings within easy walking distance of the Rijksmuseum, Leidseplein and the Heineken brewery.

The Hotel Asterisk’s 43 guestrooms get plenty of light from their large windows. Red carpets and floral-pattern blankets add some gusto, and rooms are equipped with standard amenities including cable TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi.

The bathrooms, which are either private or shared with other rooms, are simple but functional (hair dryers are available at the reception).

An Internet station is available but may cost extra (ask at reception), and breakfast is included in the nightly rate. The lobby reminded us of an elegant lounge you might find at a turn-of-the-20th-century train depot. One of the Asterisk's two buildings has an elevator (a big lift, if you will, on the competition).

About the Asterisk neighborhood

The most elegant area within the city center, Grachtengordel South features opulent residences, mansion-lined streets and a hot nightlife scene. The area boasts both Rembrandtplein (the city's one-time butter market) and Leidseplein (a former horse and buggy drop-off point). Both squares have been reborn as hot spots for bars, clubs, restaurants and no small number of tourist traps.
