I stayed for two days in Ámsterdam and I found this hotel really convenient. Very well located in a cozy area with fancy clubs and good restaurants, this is a perfect option to stay with friends or your couple. Yes, this is a gay hotel, which means good taste for decoration, kind service and cleanliness granted.

I just stayed a week at the Amistad. The bed and bathroom were spotlessly clean, the staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was lovely. It is a great location, and I was extremely pleased with my experience. Loved it. Will stay again and recommend.

Have stayed in several hotels in Amsterdam and will never try another one again. Stayed in ground floor room and patio was a bonus for smokers. If Mike and Dikky can't answer your question( hard to imagine) they will find out for you. Breakfast great and will keep even the hungriest going all day. Felt safe walking to and from... More

Stayed here for a week in August/September 2013 and it was the perfect location to explore Amsterdam, party, and relax. This place is very gay friendly with a couple of bars less than 5 minutes walk (Church + Spjker Bar has a great happy hour, to get your night started). The tram is 2 minutes walk, and there are plenty... More

I've stayed in this hotel a couple of times. The last visit was on in October 2013. The room I had was on the ground floor. It was a double room with own bathroom. There was free Wifi and TV. The room was a good size and had the added bonus of a small patio which would be useful in... More

Overall excellent. There were things about the trip that surprised me, but Joost and Mike do everything within their power to make your stay pleasant. One of the surprises was the absolute lack of any interaction between the guests at breakfast, which is served in a common room. I was hoping for some conversation, but alas... This was nobody's fault,... More

As other reviewers have confirmed, the location is great. In a busy shopping area but away from the trashy part of the city (which is towards the station). I would class it as a guest house/b&b rather than a "hotel". The guest room we stayed in felt very much like somebody's private bedroom rather than a hotel room. That may... More
