4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Our room was split with the wonderful bedroom on one floor and the great modern bathroom on the next floor down. The bedroom was like a ship captain's home would be like in the 1600's with heavy beams on the ceiling and a bed enclosed by wood paneling. Breakfast was great and included in the price. Great view of the... More

In many ways, we loved this tiny B&B on the Singel canal. Much charm, great location, good breakfast, pleasant and helpful staff. Lovely, atmospheric, but simple rooms. Only amenities in the bathroom were soap, towels and toilet paper. Very reasonable in terms of Amsterdam hotels. Biggest downside was the night noise, in this partying town. Hard sleeping because of the... More

We stayed for three nights in this great old hotel. More of a BnB really. Nice people, good breakfast, perfectly located. The only downside it that it's pretty loud at night. I think all of Amsterdam must be loud at night though. It's all bricks and cobble stones for the sound to bounce off. The place was built in the... More

The Hotel Brouwer is more like a charming, historic B & B than a hotel. If you keep this in mind, your expectations will be realistic and you will be more likely to enjoy your stay. (We were able to make our reservation on the internet.) The Brouwer is in a lovely, convenient location on the Singel canal, within walking... More

Great location overlooking canal, unique building - loved the breakfast room and the corner room was quite large. (Van Gogh room) Enjoyed the staff and the local flavor. Would be tough access for guests with mobility issues and/or lots of luggage.
