Museum Suites – History meets creature comforts in the Museum Quarter.
This intimate boutique hotel is located inside a beautifully restored 19th-century mansion – the private residence of the first director of the Rijksmuseum. The decor of the four sumptuous, individually-decorated suites is inspired by famous artists whose work appears at the nearby museums: Rembrandt, Mondrian, Van Gogh, and De Vermeer. The original fireplaces and decorated high ceilings of the mansion are combined with several mod cons including DVD players and DVDs, smart TVs, and Nespresso machines. The location is ideal for museum-hopping, and service is helpful.
