Three rooms for our family were hard to come by in high season so we settled here. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were o.k. but the street noise was intolerable giving all of us two sleepless nights. We had an early morning train to catch to Bruges but the owner was not forthcoming with a cup of coffee... More

Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. The price was good and the location great. Hotel itself a little quirky... all those stairs could be a problem if you weren't super mobile... and the slanted floors made us laugh... this is certainly an old building. The breakfast was excellent though - that was a nice surprise. And the staff... More

This is a great hotel in an even better location. It is NOT in the Red Light District, but there are a few ladies along the canal advertising their wares after dark. Nothing to be concerned about though- it's Amsterdam. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Centraal Station. I almost didn't get in though, since I arrived right... More

This is a great hotel! It is located right along a canal so the view out our window was terrific. The room was very spacious and airy with a lot of light. We had a triple and it was a lot of space for the three of us compared to many hotels we had stayed in all over Europe. It... More

Came to Amsterdam for a Hen Party, we had a mix of ages from 20s to 60s. And we had an excellent weekend. We flew to Amsterdam and got the train to Central Station. Hotel Brouwer is a 15 minute walk from the station. The hotel is quaint and lovely! Its right by the Canal, service was excellent, very friendly,... More

We stayed in the Brouwer for three nights at the beginning and end of our trip. Both rooms were unique in design. The building is very interesting and the views of the canal were wonderful. One reviewer wrote that there were no blow dryers but they did have one at the front desk if requested. Our hosts were friendly and... More

A small boutique hotel right on the Singel Canal, our family group stayed here for 2 nights last week. The hotel is in an old historic building but they also have a small elevator, which helped take our bags up. Our rooms all had canal views, though it could get quite noisy at night with the windows open as you... More

This hotel was so highly recommended that we booked 6 months ahead. We also booked the top floor for a quiet room. On our first night the boiler started leaking and we woke up at midnight with water dripping heavily on our faces! No emergency number in the room, so I stumbled downstairs (power out and elevator not working at... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a one month tour of Europe. The hotel is perfectly situated in a great part of the city. It was quiet at night and the staff directed us to some great bars nearby on the edge of Jordaan. The room had a great view of the canal and was very clean.... More

Well, this place has history. And it feels just perfect. Bill Clinton stopped by a few years ago with his Motorcade - just visiting as he drove through town. A picture of him in the tiny dining/check in area shows him with the owner and very nice house manager - both of whom where hear 40 years ago when Clinton... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
