If all you want is a new, chrome-encrusted state-of-the-art hotel, this is not for you. But if you are looking for an authentic Dutch experience in an old Amsterdam building built in the 1400s, this is it. Our small room had very low ceilings, huge beams, and leaded casement windows looking out on the narrow street, which had a canal... More

I took my mother here to celebrate her 70th birthday in February, we enjoyed it so much that we returned in October! A clean and cosy bed and breakfast on one of the main canals. The building dates from the days when ships would pull into the Singel to sell their wares and the crew would find boarding for a... More

We stayed, as a group of friends, a week ago. This hotel is extremely unique; an old building on the Singel Canal, with walking distance to so many great restaurants and cafes. I would recommend bringing ear plugs as the walls and windows are thin, and you will hear most everything from the street and the near by rooms. Also,... More

Wonderful location within walking distance to Anne Frank House, Jordaan, Dam Square. The hotel seems rickety and the floors slant but that is part of the charm. Very nice continental breakfast. Wonderful canal views from the rooms. We were surprised that some of Amsterdam's famous red lights are just about next door but the area is very quiet and safe.

Hotel Brouwer is in a great location in Amsterdam, on the Singel Canal and only a ten-minute walk from Centraal Station. Breakfast is included. I stayed in a room for one person (the Hals room) which has its own bathroom. The hotel has a small elevator (enough room for one person and a suitcase) and a winding staircase. The building...

My partner Kathie booked this hotel in Amsterdam because it offered breakfast and free wifi, and it looked like it had picturesque views. Fair enough, and normally Kathie chooses great hotels. But this one was an exception. When our taxi arrived outside, the front door was locked. Apparently they had a problem with vagrants walking in and taking things. We... More

Set in an ancient canal house, it's very very basic- white wall, a little bit creaky, wood-paneled floor, wooden bed, table, chair with exposed beams; just like walking into Van Gogh's famous Bedroom painting. The best part- windows opening to an excellent view of the canal; t's especially lovely at night, when everything's all lit up. It could be a... More

Stayed here a early 2015 and couldn't fault it one bit. Fantastic location on the Singel canal just mins from everything. Real traditional canal house conversion with quirky rooms and great views over the canal. Staff were fab and added bonus of a small breakfast to set you up for the day. As i said rooms were quirky but clean... More

This was our second stay here and it was just wonderful. These ancient buildings just have an energy about them that I enjoy. The beams are exposed, the floors are no longer totally level, the stairway is spiral tight but you know it is very clean, there is plenty of hot water and heat, the beds are comfortable, the showers...

Awesome location - just a short walk to the sights (and the station). Right on the canal too so the view from the room was beautiful. Comfy beds, delicious breakfast, friendly service. Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere nice to stay in Amsterdam without spending too much, we had a very spacious suite between four of us for not... 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.
