“A GREAT BIRTHDAY GET AWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

What a WONDERFUL Time we had in Amsterdam and the BOUTIQUE HOTEL VIEW was a big part of it. The location, just off LEIDSESTRAAT is a fun place with lots to do. Restuarants pubs, ice cream, and a delicious bakery just up the street at PRINSENGRACHT was a hit.
The staff is superb at the BOUTIQUE HOTEL VIEW. They went out of their way to accomodate every request and then some. Very friendly, always a smile and we felt they sincerely were eager to lend a hand.
We stayed in the small canal view room and small it was. We compared it to a large cruise ship cabin, but when in Europe, and they say it's small, we were not surprised. It was very nicely appointed and clean, always fresh towels and soap and vacuumed. There is so much to see and do in Amsterdam, we knew we weren't going to be in the room much anyway. THE BIG SURPRISE WAS I EXPECTED TO MAYBE HAVE TO STRAIN TO ACTUALLY SEE THE CANAL, BUT NO.... WE HAD A GREAT VIEW OUT THE WINDOW AND SAT ON THE END OF THE BED SOAKING IT ALL IN.
THEN THERE IS THE BREAKFAST. ONE OF THE CHARMING LADIES MAKES WONDERFUL PANCAKES OR OMLETTES OR BOTH AND KEEPS ASKING WHAT ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE IN THEM. IF YOU CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE SHE STARTS OFFERING DELIGHTFUL OPTIONS.
WE LOVED OUR STAY AND WOULD DO THE SMALL CANAL VIEW AGAIN, BUT HEY, SLURGE AND GET THE DELUXE CANAL VIEW ROOM.

We stayed for two nights 23/24 July as we were going to a gig at The Paradiso (only a 5 minute walk from the hotel). We were made to feel so welcome from the minute we walked in the door.
Eric was really helpful in giving us tips on where the 'locals' go, and we had chats about bands/music, along with having a laugh about our English ways! Natalie was so chilled and a great hostess. She has a hotel to be proud of. Not just because of it's location, but because the rooms are lovely, it has a relaxed atmosphere and the breakfasts are great.
Our room was on the third floor (which was up three flights of steep/narrow stairs) and Natalie carried our very heavy bag with the greatest of ease, and wasn't out of breath when she got there!?
The hotel is a great place to stay if you want somewhere near to all the action, but just tucked away enough to be quiet. We felt as though we had stayed with really good friends in their house.
When we return to Amsterdam, we will be booking to stay here again.

I stayed this hotel for 2 nights, my single room was amazing with perfect canal view. Hotel staff were very friendly, welcoming and nice. I liked them very much. All women that i met at the hotel, were very good people, thank you very much for their hospitality.

My room was very clean and comfortable for 2 nights and single stay. (Thanks to Sara for cleaning)

ıt was real canal house, perfert to feel real Amsterdam soul. I would stay here again. And i recommend to all of my friends this place. Location is also very good, not too touristy but close to everywhere.

Harika bir kanal evi, tam bir aile ortamı, yalnız seyahat edenler için güvenli bir ortam ve güzel bir lokasyon. Özellikle 104 numaralı kanal manzaralı odayı herkese tavsiye ederim. Leidseplein denen turistlerle dolu meydanın hemen arkası ve burada kalırken ben bir kez bile araca binmedim. Her yere yürüyerek gitmeniz-dönmeniz mümkün. (Dam meydanı, Anna Frank'ın evi vs..heryer yürüme mesafesi)

Room Tip: Room number 104 for especially single stay- solo travellers- with canal view!

Stayed one night in this superb little hotel. Great value (about 100 quid) for a decent sized room with twin beds overlooking the canal. Clean, comfortable, good location (near Leidseplein), stylish looking breakfast area and great service from very helpful staff. Amazed this place is considered a 2 star. The only proviso is that like most canal houses it's a 'no no' for people with an aversion to stairs. There were 54 up to the 3rd floor where we were, and they're pretty steep!

My mum booked this hotel as a suprise for our honeymoon and she said she booked it on merit of other peoples reviews. I just wanted to write and say that this is a lovely little hotel on the canal bank. Natalie is amazing and hilarious! we arrived early after the overnight ferry and as she made us feel so at ease and welcome! When our room was ready (upgraded) she helped us with our bags - putting my hubby to shame with her lifting skills!

The room was lovely, spacious and beautifully decorated and the bed (yes it is two pushed together) was so comfy we missed breakfast! The shower curtain is a little close but its a shower at the end of the day.

Its just a short walk to the parks and back into Amsterdam. We walked to and from the train station which took us about 40mins at a leisurely pace.

As said by everyone the stairs are very steep and the steps are narrow and there are a lot of them so be prepared.

Thank you Natalie for being so friendly and helpful even though we did not see much of you at all! I hope you are enjoing your new chair - ask Natalie about the spool chair it is lots of fun!

My husband and I spent the first two nights of our honeymoon at this hotel and we were very pleased. We arrived extremely jet lagged and before the check in time but Natalie made sure we sat down and relaxed with some coffee before ushering us into our room (early and ugraded!). The stairs are narrow and steep (no elevator) but if you plan to travel is Europe get used to it. Was no problem for us as we had backpacks but Natalie grabbed mine and hauled it up to the top floor! Breakfast was very nice as well with a good assortment of traditional Dutch meats, cheeses, and breads in addition to an omlet or pancake of your choice. The location is good as we wanted something a little quieter and it is off the main road by a couple of blocks. Rooms are dated but comfortable and pretty standard for the price. We walked to the museums and the Vondelpark and the tram stop is very close also. Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Budget rooms are VERY small so see if you can get an upgrade unless traveling solo.
