The eco-themed Conscious Hotel Museum Square is a quirky, modern establishment within walking distance of the Van Gogh Museum and local tram stations. The lobby features an overflowing live plant wall, which pops against the mostly white area. The eco theme is evident in the tree photo murals decorating the walls in the rooms, but they add a warm touch; without the extra color, the hotel might feel too cold. The rooms are quite large for Amsterdam, and floor-to-ceiling windows allow in lots of natural light for a bright and open feel. Rooms are simple and clean, with soft beds, basic, white bathrooms, and flat-screen TVs -- but no other amenities, not even a mini-fridge or coffeemaker. There's a bright and modern breakfast buffet, which offers a daily organic continental breakfast. There is no on-site fitness center or meeting spaces, which make the hotel a poor option for business travelers -- but overall it's a solid value option for tourists.

Planning a European getaway is one of the travel world’s greatest pleasures. Explorers envision romantic strolling in Paris, tapas tasting in Barcelona, and museum-hopping in London.

Oyster Hotel Review
Conscious Hotel Museum Square
In the Museum Quarter, near Vondelpark, museums, theaters, shopping, and dining; attractions such as the Anne Frank House require a tram or taxi ride
Marked by cobblestone roads, street-level canals and an abundance of coffee shops (which are most often known for something other than coffee), Amsterdam is both a quiet and lively city without the pretention of other European metropolises.
In the summer, visitors can enjoy live music at the Openluchttheater, an open-air venue at the Vondelpark, or the Roots Music Festival. The Gay Pride parade also takes place in the summer, and the city's many museums -- including the Van Gogh Museum or the Anne Frank House, where Frank and her family hid from the Nazis during World War 2 -- are popular year-round. Visitors in April can experience Queen's Day, which celebrates the queen's birthday and includes a massive flea market, parties, and outdoor concerts.
Noordermarkt is known for its antiques, and Brouwerij de Prael is a recommended stop for beer enthusiasts. Fun dining spots include the famous sandwich spot Van Dobben, as well as Pancake Bakery, which offers more than 70 types of pancakes and a slew of other breakfast goods.
