You are welcomed with a smile and offered helpful hints when you need them It is close to the city and close to the trams yet not noisy at all The rooms are comfortable and warm with nice and clean bathroom facilities Breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip with...

I have stayed in the Nicolaas Witsen a couple of times now, on a regular annual week trip to Amsterdam. The location works well for me, not just in terms of where I have to be during the day, but in being both quiet and within the old canals of Amsterdam. It is outside the manic centre, but close enough... More

A small hotel within walking distance of Ryksmuseum. The staff were very welcoming and the bedroom was very clean, quiet and warm and not as small as expected. The shower worked easily. Breakfast was continental and the croissants were fresh and delicious. It was just as well the lift worked as there was a steep spiral staircase to be tackled... More

A hotel in a great and quite location. The rooms are note very spacious but are very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Free wifi. About 200m from the hotel there is a tram station that you can use to go easily to the central station.

Our base for a four night first stay in Amsterdam. Using Trip Advisor I had searched for a 3 star hotel (because of the high prices of hotels in Amsterdam) outside of the main centre but still within easy reach of all the sites and somewhere close to eat of an evening. Nicolaas Witsen met this criteria as Tram stops... More

It was so pleasant and central that really made my holidays better. It is a small clean and central hotel with easy access to everything. Very close to the museum area, to the concert hall, shops and canals. Having only a hand baggage upon my arrival I walked to the hotel. It is a half hour walk. The breakfast was... More

This was a very comfortable stay in a good-sized room with an extremely comfortable double bed. The ensuite shower and toilet was efficient. The wifi was very efficient and breakfast was good too ... standard continental fare, but as much as you wanted to eat. It's a five to ten minute walk (depending how quickly you walk!) to the Heineken... More
