The hotel was perfect for our visit to Amsterdam. The staff were helpful and stored our bikes securely.The location is great, 5 minutes walk from Dam Square. There are good restaurants and bars nearby. One note of caution - there is no lift and the stairs are steep. If it that doesn't put you off this is the hotel for... More

Although the conditions may perhaps be reflective of it's 2 star rating, the photos we saw online were not a fair representation of the room we were given. The stairs to the rooms are very narrow and steep, and as if to add insult to injury, we were put on the very top floor (really quite a climb!). When we... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review about our hotel. It is sad to read that you were not happy with the room you were assigned to. In the end we are just a simple budget hotel, this is also how we present ourselves and nothing more. Being a little hotel in a 300-years old monumental canal house, we only... More

I stayed here mid-May. I would have given this hotel 3 stars for its location. However, although the bathrooms were nice and clean and recently renovated, the old carpeting and chairs in the hotel room made me not want to set anything down on the floor or in the shelving of the closets! My friend and I also could not... More

Everything previously written is pretty much the case. Stairs are steep, rooms are small, staff is nice. We took bus 197 from the airport to the end of the line and walked. It isn't a bad walk, maybe 15 mins but with luggage a bit much. Location is close to everything. Our room was overlooking the canal on the second... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in a single bed room with a room facing the canal. Beautiful view, clean bathroom, and great location. The bathroom is reminiscent of one in an airplane but with a shower at the end. That worked fine for me but if you're a big person, be prepared to use the bathroom with the door... More

We stayed for 2 nights in April. Nice hotel. Pluses: our room faced canal - lovely view. Breakfast was nice and adequate. Owner's son was extremely nice and accommodating. Good location. Very clean. Minuses: room was very "tight" - as was bathroom. If you are a "larger" person, you may want to ask for a bigger room. Stairs up to... More

The location is great and the staff pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is ample although a little variety would be nice when you have an extended stay. The stairs are steep and plentiful (30 to the 2nd floor). The view of the rooms not facing the canal is a wall—which is not a real problem if you plan on just... More

I booked 3 rooms (2 twins & 1 single). The hotel was located within easy reach of Dam Square (7 mins) and RijksMuseum (20 mins). The rooms were a little on the smallish side but each had ensuite bathroom and toilet facilities. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms and toilets clean and mold free. The rooms were well heated... More

In general, our stay in Hoksbergen was good. The situation is excellent, in front of a canal, very closed to Damm Square an other touristic attractions. Our small complaints are about the comfort: it is in an old building and the stairs are difficult to go up and down (there's no elevator), the rooms are really small and in one... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our small hotel is situated in a beautiful canal-house that is over 300 years old, nestled on the quiet, picturesque Singel, the oldest of the four major ring canals in Amsterdam's famed inner city. Our cosy hotel offers an oasis right in the centre of town. The hustle and bustle of the shopping streets around Dam Square, the charm of the myriad canals lined with 17th-century houses and world famous sights, such as the Anne Frank House, are all literally steps away. There are also convenient trams and other public transport options to whisk you off to all of the city's many attractions. Room information: the hotel offers 13 double and single rooms and one triple room. We serve a good continental breakfast-buffet in our light and pleasant breakfast room. Rooms are ready for check in at 14.00 o'clock. If you arrive earlier we can store your luggage until then. We look forward to have you as our guests! ... more   less
