Situated just a block between the Rijksmuseum and the Leidseplein, the well placed Poet Hotel is well versed in both trendy style and affordability. It’s an interesting mashup, and could work well for travelers who want something stylish and cheap, and don’t mind tiny rooms.
It’s all cosmopolitan sleek in the hotel’s 64 tight little rooms, from the crisp black-and-white color scheme (set off by lipstick red chairs) to the boxy furniture and chic silver lamps. Large (and stunning) black-and-white photos are hung in artistic clusters on somes walls, while inspirational quotes trail along others.
Rooms are equipped with a flat-screen TV, soundproof windows, an iPod dock, safe and telephone. We recommend requesting a room with a cast-iron balcony, as the leafy street views add a touch of romance. The ample “Deluxe Family Rooms,” which sleep up to four and offer extra space, can prove an especially good value.
All bathrooms are private and include basic toiletries and a hair dryer. These, too, are tight, but they’re likewise stylish, with large white tiles, boxy sinks and shiny fixtures.
A zig-zag of hallways connect the four traditional townhouses that make up the hotel. The reception shares its ground floor with a 24-hour bar and TV lounge that doubles as a café by day. Done up in hunter green, rich woods, tall plants and a few well-stocked bookshelves, this area feels like a sophisticated hippie’s den—with touches of taxidermy on the walls (and chairs!).
Aside from a few steps leading up to the entrance, the Poet Hotel is a wheelchair-accessible building.

About the Poet Hotel neighborhood
The most popular neighborhood outside the city center, the Museumplein is a residential area crowded with museums, parks and 19th-century buildings. The Rijksmuseum possesses an impressive collection of Dutch paintings from the 15th through the 17th centuries (including an enormous Rembrandt collection), the Van Gogh Museum is (surprise) devoted to Van Gogh, and the Stedelijk Museum houses modern and contemporary art.
