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.

People stay at this hotel for its location, views and to take in a bit of history. This is an inn, not a hotel, so don't expect anything you'd find at a chain hotel, like toiletries in the bath, irons, etc. The building itself is one attraction, built in 1652 and with many of the old features are still extant,...

As long as you don't mind narrow, slightly claustrophobic spiral staircases, this is a lovely, warm, quirky hotel just oozing character. The room we had (Vermeer) was plain and basic in the best possible way - spotlessly clean - no frills or extras (bring your own hairdryer if that is an essential, as well as shampoo) but with a view...

This hotel is not for everyone. It doesn't have amenities of a chain hotel. We spent 2 nights there prior to taking a cruise and enjoyed our stay. We did bring earplugs as other travelers advised. Does not have AC. Great location, friendly service, great view from our room, Breakfast was very good but no selection. Would definitely stay there... More

I stayed in one of the single rooms for 3 nights. Pros: 1) Really lovely view of the canals 2) Wonderful location, just a few- minute walk from Dam Square 3) Nice owners 4) Good-value breakfast. For 6 Euros, I got a croissant, 2 other rolls, 2 slices of cheese, my own little pot of French press coffee, orange juice,... More
