Museum Quarter Reviews
Went here with family and friends and it was great. Had a sort of Christmas market which was lovely of not that Christmassy ! Also an ice rink which looked fun. more »
Another nice area to walk around and people watch. Great architecture for your viewing, but there are lots of area's the same so you need to pick and choose. more »
It's a little further from the Center than I would like... That being said, the hotel is clean (minus the stains on the carpet), and the location has quite a bit near it if you look around. Not bad for a quick stay with just enough stuff to do. Check them out!!!
I love this hotel! It's a great location, along a canal, and close to several museums including the Van Gough. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
