“Fantastic location. Unique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for three days in two connecting canal view rooms. The rooms were small, oddly configured but lovely. The property consists of 20+ connected canal houses. It's a fantastic location, walking distance to everything. The canal views were beautiful. Coming from the US with outsized expectations, I don't feel the hotel is a five star property but it's definitely 4. One evening we took the hotels private canal boat tour which I highly recommend. It was a sophisticated way to see and learn about Amsterdam without the tourist crowds and the bonus of enjoying a glass of wine on the boat. Breakfast buffet was very nice. Concierge was helpful, and staff were friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

From the time our bags were taken out of the taxi to the time they were put back in the taxi four days later , we never enjoyed the service at any hotel as much.
Everyone on staff always had a smile and would say something nice as they passed you.
The front desk personnel were always happy to help and answer questions.
The room we had was large ,quiet and clean.
Location was perfect for walking and shopping away from all the tourist traps.

The team made us a very comfortable stay! The hotel is of typical canal room, think step-saving....but nicely appointed and renovated! We were here for leisure and the breakfast was included as part if the platinum privilege.

It was our first visit in Amsterdam and i could never ask better hotel than this one. The location is p-e-r-f-e-c-t so and the staff is so welcoming and friendly. We asked to empty the mini bar for keeping cheeses for presents and they did it immediately it was very nice of them. The view from the restaurant is so romantic. Wish we could live there!

We spent 3 days in Amsterdam and wanted to have a view of the canal from our bedroom and decided to stay at the Hotel Pulitzer. Its location in the old part of the city was perfect, walking distance everywhere, I liked the view from our window and they even have their own boat for guests. The service was friendly, everything went smoothly, I would stay here again.

Beautiful hotel and perfectly located. Walking distance to all the sites and only a short block away from Anne Franks house. Magnificent gardens. Hotel has a/c which is nice when it is hot. Morning buffet was unbelievable and included in the price. Staff extremely helpful.

We stayed here two nights on the fourth floor facing the canal . The view was perfect and you can open window and look out. The room had a queen size bed and very comfortable. Hardwood floors and a tile and marble bathroom. Need to ask for iron and coffee maker . Food and coffee bar are very good. Staff is quite attentive. Pretty courtyard areas and a lovey bar called The Pulitzer in the back of hotel.
