We stayed fro 3 nights recently after our cruise. This is a charming, inexpensive hotel right on Singel Canal which makes it very convenient to get around. The are some nice restaurants nearby - expecially Seasons. The dining room, check in area and office are in front. The area is locked from 8:00PM until about 8:00AM That can be a... More

The proprietor was warm, friendly and helpful. The accommodations, in a canal house dating to 1620, were a suite of two bedrooms and private bath up a steep but short winding staircase, with a private entrance. Modern updated bathroom/shower. Good beds. Nice breakfast included. Reasonably priced when shared among four people. A stone's throw from the red light district, if... More

I stayed 6 nights in Hals room, and here are the sum of my experience. PROS. (1) The location is very convenient. 10-15 minutes walk to Central Station and there is a tram/bus stop just 2 blocks to the east. (2) The room has a canal view. (3) The room rate is probably quite reasonable for Amsterdam, especially given its... More

The picturesque Brouwer B&B is not far from the train station and just a two minute walk to the nearest tram stop. A few years back, a photo of the building was featured in a calendar of Amsterdam. We arrived on Mon., 20 April and stayed four nights in the charming Esher Room which is on the top floor and... More

We loved this place and would come back in a heartbeat........but first....get some decent beds! We had a double room on the top floor. It had easy access from the small elevator. The room was super clean, roomy, bright and airy, and had a HUGE bathroom; even a separate tub and shower.(but water easily splashed out of the shower, and... More

It was really great when booking here, a lovely old hotel brings authentic European style. I've got one room on the 4th floor with beautiful views over the canal, take in the views are stunning scenery. But breakfast does not have much choice but very tasty, cozy cafeteria space as possible in families, like mothers cook breakfast for the kids.... More

Fantastic place. Great location (can walk everywhere from this base whilst in Amsterdam), a lot of character, wonderful staff, amazing breakfasts, and great views! Wouldn't think about staying anywhere else in Amsterdam!

There are only 10 rooms in this characteristic 1600's canal and they are usually booked well ahead of time. The location is superb - a short walk to the train station if you do not have lots of luggage. If you are a walker, you can easily do all of your sightseeing by foot from this hotel - no need...

Excellent VFM hotel. Great location, friendly staff, good breakfast in characterful small hotel dating from 1652. We stayed in one of the attic rooms, all of which are named after Dutch painters. The rug in our bedroom was exactly the same as the one in our living room at home, so it really did feel like a home-from-home. It is... More

I can't really add much to what others have written other than agree - staff were very helpful and I like finding places which haven't been 'done over' and have real character as opposed to thematic kind added later! It's a short walk from the station so access is easy.
