Had two overnights at the Boutique View hotel this fall in different rooms. Both great and very clean, with very nice views of the canals. Ania and Natalie were super helpful and friendly at the desk and made great breakfasts, to boot. The hotel was well located, within walking distance of most major sights and two minutes from local transportation. It was especially handy to the airport express bus (4 euros instead of 40 for a taxi). When I came back for my second overnight, it was like coming home and seeing old friends. I would not hesitate to book with them again when I return to Amsterdam.
