This review can't discuss the accommodations themselves because, after the difficult experience noted below, I didn't wind up staying there. But I was certainly charged about $195 by the Amistad for the privilege of (thankfully) staying somewhere else. I made a reservation about 1.5 months before my planned arrival dates. Within two weeks of making the reservation, I realized that... More

I've been before, but this time really stands out. As a great base in central Amsterdam, I think it would be hard to better this boutique hotel. The room was great, warm, well appointed and on arrival we were greeted with a really friendly face (Joost) and a bottle of wine! Breakfasts were brilliant, a bit like being in a... More

We have stayed here twice. Once in February 2007 and May 2014. Excellent location, great service, wonderful breakfast, friendly staff. It's a small boutique hotel but we enjoyed our stay both times. The staff assisted us getting our pass that I had purchased online but never received a bar code. He called and got it arranged for us to pick... More

Firstly, the location is quite good. Then I may have had bad luck. I booked quite late, only like a fortnight in advance. So the hotel was fully booked but I got a room in the Bed and Breakfast in the same street (same owners). The first thing when I arrived and wanted to pick up the key to the... More

The price isn't reflective of what you get. There is a kettle in the room yay to that, but alas no milk! Lighting is... More

My trip to Amsterdam was a last minute decision. Luckily, the good people at Amistad were able to get me a room. The accomodations are fine. I used ear plugs at night, since I'm a light sleeper. The real standout is the staff. Kind, patient and helpful to a fault, thanks especially to Joost and Dicky.

I stayed here for a few nights and it was pretty poor. Unfortunately the day I arrived it was raining and cold so I pretty much froze through the night as I wasn't aware of this until the day after. You would expect a basic like heating would be always working in this climate. I was given an extra blanket... More

We were very welcomed at the hotel, the service and attention given by Joost was excellent. I highly recommend to stay here whenever you go to Amsterdam! (my review actually ended before, but TripAdvisor insists in 200 characters at least, so...).

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
