Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Set across four townhouses, Max Brown Museum Square is a trendy boutique hotel in the heart of Amsterdam’s Museum District. Only a block away from the celebrated Van Gogh museum, it is the idyllic hideaway for history-buffs and sightsee-ers alike.
There’s a distinctly stylish feel to this sleek and central member of the Max Brown hotel group. A New York loft vibe hangs about the place, with plenty of reclaimed wood and stylish light fittings and the bar offering a cosy spot for a drink.
Breakfast is served - if a little chaotically - in the hotel’s rustic chic breakfast room and is included in most room rates (check detail below). There’s a cosy bar which is perfect for sipping on an evening tipple or tucking into a tasty snack. There is no restaurant so you’ll need to head out to dine, but there are plenty of gourmet eateries nearby serving an eclectic range of cuisines.
With regard to the age and style of the building, it’s no surprise that the rooms do tend to be a little on the small size (particularly Standard and Medium). Nonetheless, each is as charming as the last, with comfortable beds and a funky décor – with quirky little basketball hoops for a nice bit of night-time entertainment. There are also a number of twin and triple rooms available, which are ideal for those travelling as friends. It's worth noting that the stairs are very steep but there is a small lift if you'd rather avoid them.
Located in the Jan Luykenstraat, in Amsterdam’s Museum District, you’ll find plenty of intriguing galleries and historic delights on your doorstep. There is also a fashionable street of high-end boutiques just round the corner and the infamous I Amsterdam sign, Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum a 2-minute walk away.
If venturing further afield, there’s a tram stop a minute's walk away, or in true Dutch fashion, you can rent bike from the hotel and whiz around the city on wheels. The lovely staff are also more than happy to give you the inside scoop on the best places to see and eat.
