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

This BnB is such a gem in Amsterdam. I am staying here now for the second time. It's in a perfect location, walking distance to all the main sites, and it is so reasonably priced. The thing I love most is that I miss my dog terribly when I travel but some mornings you can find two little poodles joining... More

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
