I spent two nights at this hotel on a whirlwind, last-minute trip to AMS. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. First off, the staff were incredible. From the girls at the front desk to bartenders, everyone was incredibly helpful, kind, and engaging. They really made me feel at home.
The room was just the right size, very clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. The hotel is everything you would expect of a three-star property and then some.
Of course, you don't travel to a place like Amsterdam for the room; you're there to explore. Fortunately, Hotel Sebastian's provides a great location for exploring the city center. Located on a quite street on a gorgeous canal, the hotel is a short walk to just about anywhere in the city center and near virtually all public transit options. However, it just far enough from the busy "tourist areas" to allow for tranquility when you want it. You can't beat that.
(Speaking of tranquility, just FYI: during my stay, there was a bit of construction going on nearby that occasionally got loud in the late morning, so late sleepers might want to keep that in mind. It wasn't too bad, though...and, as with most construction, I'm sure it is just a temporary nuisance).
All in all, I plan on staying here again when I return next year with my wife. I don't know that we would find a better value and quiet place to stay in the city. Highly recommended!
