The location is really good, the block is charming, but the rooms (at the 3rd floor at least) were too hot in July: despite cooler nights the temperature just wouldn't get down though we had a fan. Especially the bathroom could use a proper cleaning. We had a last minute change of plans and ended up booking in the last... More

We stayed here as a family of four for two nights in July. Unfortunately it turned out to be a hot week, and we were in a top floor room. The hotel kindly gave us a fan, which helped, but it was still uncomfortable trying to sleep. We had a 4-person room, which barely had room to move with all... More

We stayed here for a three-night city break. We were booking the hotel a little bit late and it was quite expensive for my standards. However, for a trip with my mom this was a great choice, everything worked well. The staff were really attentive and helpful, they even fixed some of the bike parts that I had bought to... More

We had a great stay at the Nicolass Witsen. We spent 3 nights here. Conveniently located near two tram stops so you can get to the inner city very quickly. Reachable from the Airport by the Connexion bus or the train. We had a 4 bed room which was cozy but we didn't spend much time in the room. Breakfast... More

This is a small hotel located on a side street just within the inner canal ring. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the museum quarter (Rijksmusem, Van Gogh Museum and modern art museum), and the tram stops a few block away, making access to the center and the train station easy. Breakfast was nothing special, but adequate, a cold... More
