Very small hotel, may be not very convenient for some people but very charming and the staff was great. The location was very good, away from the hustle bustle of the centre but still within walking distance to the centre.

We arrived to be whisked into a back room with scaffolding outside the windows and workmen in boots working on the room above. No mention of this at booking. Cigarette smoke seemed to be somehow wafting into our room from below??? even though the hotel is supposed to be non smoking. The noise of workboots woke us next morning at... More

I agree with one of the previous comments that some people are overrating this hotel. The staff were nice and welcoming and the location decent, but.. it was extremely noisy. Traffic outside and paperthin walls made it difficult to sleep. The beds were also hard. I didn't have a problem sharing bathroom facilities and the radiators were on to the... More

Visited this hotel a weekend in November, nice and cozy, nice rooms. A bit pricy. 75€ pr night. Good transport connections with the nr4 tram running outside. The rooms have good heating, but only single glazed windows make it a noisy experience!

I've visited Amsterdam more than seven times since 1999 and Hotel Prinsenhof is one of my favorite places to stay. My wife and I stayed here during August 2013 while on summer vacation. Positives: Great central location. Next to superb restaurants and pubs/cafes. We walked from the hotel to Van Gogh Musem, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein. I ran from...

This little gem of a hotel is reasonably central with enough bars and restaurants to cater to everyone's taste. Also within walking distance is Rembrandtplein where you will find a more tourist vibe if your heart desires such. Tram #4 from Central Station stops a VERY short distance from the hotel - so you are easily connected to the rest... More

Comparing the price to the youth hostels, before arrival we were thinking we would get a smelly room without any windows. This hotel is beautiful. Luckily we got a room looking to the canal, the decoration of the room made me feel like I was a character in a Dostoyevski novel. At night we felt asleep with pleasant thoughts. And... More

We wanted a hotel along the canal ring for a reasonable price, and this place fit the bill perfectly. The steps up to reception are steep, but we expected that given that it is truly an old canal house. Staff was exceptionally friendly, even lending us a power converter for our 3 night stay. Beds weren't anything special, but we... More

We have spent two nights in this charming one star hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. We particularly liked the location with lots of bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities around, nevertheless the area is not overcrowded with tourists. The hotel is in a old building, therefore the staircases are EXTREMELY steep. This might be an issue for older traveller. The... More

So, to set expectations - this is a "1 star" B&B in Amsterdam. If you think like that, you'll be presently surprised! The rooms are great, quiet, excellent for singles or doubles. Location is brilliant - not too Far from Rembrandtplein. I arrived around 10am and the room wasn't ready but Dave was super friendly and offered me a shower,... More
