“Very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Friends of ours checked this place out before we stayed here. We found the hotel quite charming and the accomodations very clean and reasonable. The breakfast is top notch and the best we experienced in the Netherlands. The people at the front desk were friendly and fawned over the kids. Great family hotel. Free parking right at the hotel.

Well situated and clean hotel. Rooms are big and so the beds. The hotel is easy finding and have a large parking area, and it is for free.
The restaurant at the hotel called "sowieso" is as it it " so wie so", which means no bad-no good.
You will not starve, but dont expect "cuisine".

A good clean hotel with fine polite personnel. Easy access to highways to go around Friesland region (maybe they should add a "AMICITIA" to their light "HOTEL" so you cannot go around missing go there the first time). Not too far from the center of Sneek (1,5 km by feet), so with good weather there is no problem walking there.
Their buffet breakfast is really good as in quality as in quantity (kudos to all).
We tasted the restaurant too. This is a buffet restaurant where you can have your steak, for instance, cooked for you at the moment (but there are other dishes prepared the same way for you at the moment). Do not be fooled by the name "buffet" , because you can find really a lot of things, continuously added by the active personnel. Maybe the only problem is in you, because it should happen you want to taste everything.
If I should mark a critical point, I would say that missing air conditioning in the rooms is a pity for an otherwise great hotel. But this will not prevent me to stay there if I will be back in Sneek.

Amicitia (Friesland) Hostel is a very really cool place to stay in Amsterdam. It’s pretty cool, this hostel is literally an old converted boat! Super cool! You can hear the sound of the waves on the boat, its nice to fall asleep to. The location is god, it’s an easy walk to the main train station, city centre, Nemo Museum and other attractions. The rooms are small, but that is to be expected as you are on a boat. Free breakfast is delicious and the staff are really friendly. There is even a bar on the boat! Great, unique experience. www.FrieslandHostel.com

We stayed two days in this hotel. Location is at industry premises, but despite this, we loved to stay there. Very warm welcome, nice clean room, comfortable bathroom and quite! As we do not like "wokking" so much we did not have dinner but went to Sneek. Sneek offers a wide variety of restaurants, so no problem. Breakfast was included and is quite sufficient. Reception offers tips for trips and a even a bike can be rented. Good service!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2009

We were supposed to celebrate my parents 40'th anniversary and decided to stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious and comfi in comparison to most other hotels, but if the hotel is worth 4 stars? No, not at all.
This hotel is just a 3 star European/Boutique alike hotel or a 3 star luxarious motel as we know across United States.
The beds are awful, the rooms too warm and it is located in the outscirts of the city away from any cafe/restaurant or shopping districts. You need to walk for about 10 minutes to get to the small city center with shops and cafes or to the harbour.
Parking lot is free which is good, there is a buffet but the quality of the food wasn't that good and I won't advise this hotel to those who might think are going to stay in a luxarious 4 star rated hotel, but more to the common travellers amongst us who just need a night stay and not more and surely not to those who seek for romance or fancy dinner out.
The hotel is further more a good choice as long as you need clean, spacious rooms, with spacious bathrooms, friendly staff and a free parking lot. good value for the money? yes and no.
But as there isn't much choice in and around Sneek, the Netherlands, so this is the only and best place you can indeed stay.
