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

I go to Amsterdam every year for business and this is one of the best experience I had in the city. When I arrived, I found my name with a big Welcome on the main door. The bell is directly connected to owner. Immediately the owner arrives with a big smile and positive energy to take us in. He helps... More

The rooms are quite small. That might be okay but especially the doors are very bad insulated. So, if somebody is walking along the corridor the stairs or entering the room beside your room it's like somebody is walking directly through your bed. In conclusion I woke up every night several times because somebody was entering the neighbor's room. Clearness... More

Nice, clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Lovely breakfast too and they serve it until quite late (12h), which was perfect for us. Right across from a "Coffeshop", if you are into that sort of thing ;) .

Stayed at Amistad over Pride weekend. We requested the room on the ground floor having stayed in this same room on a previous visit. The room is very good size with a private, en suite bath. The hotel is in a fantastic location. It is a 15-20 minute walk to Centraal Station. There are three tram lines that run on... More

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

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.
