“Very Pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I needed a single room as a base while visiting Amsterdam, while meeting with friends and attending a music concert.

Summary: Great place to stay, you will definitely not be disappointed.



Staff were helpful and friendly right from early email enquiries, to arrival, stay and departure.

I've stayed in Amsterdam before, and visited several times since and always try to find excellent hotels that aren't overpriced. I was not disappointed with Sebastian's.

The friendly barlady helped me unwind with a few beers and a enlightening conversation after my arrival.

The room was clean and cosy, and faced the back of the hotel which overlooks a small back area and some other houses. Picturesque with trees.

I didn't opt for the meals, but it looked enjoyable and social when I looked in.

Room Tip: I would recommend obtaining a canal-facing room for those new to Amsterdam, because it is the view y...

I was with my husband for our birthday getaway and the privacy, location of the hotel was perfect. The breakfast spread was also very good and staff knowledgeable and gave good recommendations. The room price though is on the top end.

My first interaction with the Sebastian staff was via email. I made a request while booking online and received a prompt reply acknowledging my request and confirming the arrangements to be made. I was very impressed and was looking forward to our stay. When we arrived we were not disappointed. The property is beautifully located on a central canal. Quiet, yet close to attractions. The reception staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was tastefully decorated, large, and accommodated us nicely. Throughout our stay the staff continued to impress. Housekeeping had us coming back to a beautifully made room each day. The bar/food and beverage staff were courteous and attentive. But I must say, the reception staff really went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one.

Thank you Hotel Sebastian's,

Shannon, Janis & Karen

We had a small double which was small and dark as on the inner courtyard area. Would benefit from more controllable lighting (dimmable). Bit gothic for our taste and a tad expensive but overall a pleasant stay. The canal view rooms much bigger and better from a quick look. Staff very helpful and friendly and location was great...10 mins from train station. Would stay again if we could get a better rate with the larger canal view room.

Right on Keizersgracht about 10 minute walk from the train station. Beautiful location in quiet neighborhood with several good restaurants and bars nearby. Rooms were a little small but they all are in Amsterdam. The room was very clean and comfortable with modern amenities. The bar was very nice and the courtyard was a nice touch. Very central location with a quiet neighborhood feel. We will be back

We stayed for five nights in late April in Room 121 overlooking Keizersgracht Canal. The room was small but well appointed with a fancy coffee maker, a tv with a variety of programming in English, lots of shampoo, a safe, and extra blankets and pillows. We spent a lot of time having coffee and watching boats and bicycles go by below. Staff at Sebastian's were uniformly cheerful and helpful. They told us where to get great apple pie in the neighborhood, set us up with an airport shuttle, and more than once looked up information for us on the internet. There was free WiFi, and the bar downstaris was a pleasant place for a drink or buffet breakfast. The location was excellent -- just a few blocks from Centraal Train Station, and a 5-10 minute walk in any direction to nieghborhoods with great restaurants and shops. My husband has a leg brace, so it was nice to have an elevator. This was a perfect spot for a few days.

Room Tip: Spend the money to get a room with a canal view. Even though we were on the 1st (2nd to Americans...

Perfect location, spotlessly clean and fantastic staff - what more could you want?! Easy walking distance from Central Station and to all attractions. Could not fault the room - we had room 102 which was on the ground floor at the rear of the hotel - a 'luxury double with bath and shower' - with access to a walled garden area. Room was spacious and spotless. Nespresso coffee machine with easy instructions was a real bonus. Very quiet - so excellent night's sleep! But as previous reviewers have said, the staff totally make this the perfect hotel - all so pleasant and helpful. Thoroughly recommend and would definitely return if we re-visit this lovely friendly city!
