We loved Amstel Corner which is a small place with a few rooms, more of a boarding house (but with a privacy you do not normally get in a B&B) than a hotel - no front desk etc.. Our room was on the top floor with nice views over a canal and was very quiet as we were so high up. The room was very large indeed with a stunning variety of lighting. Lights in every corner for every mood!; with a dimmer or switch or two thrown in. The room had a whole bunch of things such as cooker, fridge, CD player, coffee machine, as well as the usual TV, free wi-fi etc. The decor was excellent and had a personal ambience about it rather than a chain hotel feel. A big window and a skylight gives a lot of natural light, although that is limited in the dark north European winter. The bathroom is small but modern and is very well designed to maximise space.
The location, although just outside the very centre of Amsterdam, is excellent, just a few minutes walk from busy and interesting Utreschstraat, A few minutes along Utrechtstraat takes you you to Rembrandtsplein. The less energetic can get a tram to Rembrandts or right into Dam Square. Amstel Corner is wonderful value in expensive Amsterdam, but beware of the steep stairs if you are not too fit or have a lot of luggage.
We love being in the heart of a city (preferably close to the main station) but on our next visit to Amsterdam we intend returning to Amstel Corner.
