Three of us girls stayed at Hotel Brouwer and had a wonderful time. It's right on the canal with beautiful views and very close to the downtown for easy walking to shops and restaurants. Our room was very clean with beautiful high ceilings and a new modern bathroom with double sinks. The dining room is cozy and the breakfast was... More

This is a small hotel located on one of Amsterdam's main canal streets. The place certainly has "character" as it has developed a lean to one side over the centuries. The windows in my room were cut to fit the slanted opening of the room which was curious to see. They don't take credit cards which I thought was a... More

Hotel Brouwer has been my secret for the last fifteen years, and only now that I know the owners well enough to know that they will find room for me to stay, am I prepared to write this review. This is a really beautiful historic boutique hotel in the best location possible in Amsterdam, on the Singel walking distance from... More

Quaint historic hotel in a central location, within walking/tram distance of everything. The room was spotless and comfortable. Nothing fancy but everything you need. Staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was a simple but a welcome start to each day. If you want the feel of old Amsterdam with its leafy canal side ambiance this is the place... More

My wife and I stayed during September 2014. After reading so many wonderful reports about how unique it was we decided it was for us and booked about 6 months early. What we didn't realize was that it was to undergo complete exterior repainting during our stay. It would have been the courteous and professional thing to do to notify... More

I stayed two nights and was looking for a good value single room within easy walking distance from the Centraal Station. The rooms are basic but adequate for what I needed, TV, telephone, en-suite etc. but very small. It would have been better if the bed base was the same size as the mattress - in my room the bed...

What a wonderful three nights we enjoyed here at the Hotel Brouwer. The perfect location, right on the Singel Canal was central to every where we wanted to walk. The people were friendly and helpful, and the included breakfast was elegantly served in their historic dining room. We loved being in Amsterdam, and this lovely hotel was a big part... More

As others have mentioned the location makes most attractions within easy walking distance. And yes, there are a couple of "red light" establishments on Singel; the alley behind the hotel was the original red light district in the 1600s. Our room, Van Gogh, was a mere 49 steps up from the reception and there is a small lift if needed.... More

We stayed 6 nights. Great location, with a full view of the canal. It is on a party and red light street. But this just seemed to add to the authentic flavor of our stay. We had come prepared with earplugs so we were able to watch all the fun, then close it out when we wanted to. Our room... More
