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.

My go to place in Amsterdam. Great staff, great breakfast, helpful and centraal are all terms I would use to describe this place. It's spartan, no TV but overall a wonderful place I have recommended over and over again.

Really good room with a lot of ambiance. Sleeping on the top floor gave us a really nice view of the city. Less than average food and service. We found the staff to be distant, and, while not unfriendly, not very outgoing or available.

Quaint historic hotel just ten minutes walking from the Dam Square, and within walking 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. It was really cold when I was there but it was a pleasure... More

We spent 3 days in Amsterdam and were very pleased with the Hotel Brouwer. We arrived around 10 AM and they were willing to keep our luggage so we could go out. Colleen who checked us in was wonderful and Ellen served a good breakfast. It is an old building, but that is what we wanted. We wanted someplace with... More

This hotel is located in a great position, you can visit the whole city on foot and admire the Singel canal from the window! It is in a old building dated 1652 and everything tells his story. Rooms are spacious and spartan, the floor is sloping, but it is part of the atmosphere of the hotel! Personnel are very kind... More

Good location. Easy to find. Spartan. Breakfast was tasty but the same every day. I was at a meeting at RAI and the tram connection worked well. Cash only. The elevator is a godsend for those with heavy luggage. Staircases in old Dutch buildings can be tough.

If you are looking for a 4 star luxury hotel this is not it. We prefer to stay in boutique hotels and that is what this is. Typically the front desk is not manned 24 hours, your key will open the side door. There is an elevator, albeit very small (2 persons or 1 person and some luggage). The rooms... More
