My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights, after trawling the internet for a reasonable hotel near the centre of Amsterdam. We chose the Nicolaas Witsen Hotel which from the map, looked a little further out than we wanted, but looked nice and a reasonable price. We soon realised after arriving, the Hotel was in a perfect location. Short... More

Found it to be a good location as it wasn't in a noisy area but was a short walk from Rembrantplein and the Museum Quarter. Breakfast was good but room was a little dirty (cobwebs). There was a good bar across the road and there were lots of decent restaurants nearby. But then this is Amsterdam so always something nearby!... More

The staff is nice and helpful, but... Hotel is at least 15 minutes away from key places if you decide to go walking. Walls of the rooms are so thin you can't avoid hearing everything going on in the rooms around you. Cleaning involves changing the towels, not bed sheets even if staying for three nights, and a quick 5... More

Dear Sunny R, Thank you for your review and your friendly words about the staff. About the distance to the major attractions its a pitty, you were in the wrong area. We are located in the South part of Amsterdam city center, closeby: Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Heineken Experience, Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein. Probably you were looking for a hotel more...

Long weekend with my sister in Amsterdam.The staff are very friendly, always smiling and very helpful. The hotel was in a more peaceful area but just a few minutes away from the main areas with the trams running from the main road outside the hotel. Our room was exceptionally clean (we were in room 9) with two very large windows... More

We loved our stay with you. One of the most important assets is your staff, they are all friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The rooms are nice, neat and clean. The location is perfect for couples and families who like a central location but not necessarily near the level of activity and noise in some of the main streets. Something that... More

We stayed for two nights in the hotels in end of December. The quality of the service was nice and good, but we had a serious problem with the heating system, as it was turned off in the middle of the night.

Nicolaas W. Location good, quiet area, away from the busy city centre, close to Van Gogh, Heineken Brewery and museums, easy access into the central by Metro or trams. Staff friendly and very helpful. Helped pre book tickets for the fast lane at Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum, something I highly recommend. We had checked out in the morning and had... More
