“Nice hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Just returned from a week stay at the Amistad. I had booked this hotel on line and was pleasantly surprised. It is very convenient to shopping, the flower market and the museums. There are about three gay bars on the same street and others about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Mike, Rick and Joost were great hosts, cooking breakfast to order each AM. I would definitely stay there again.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by owner Joos it set the tone for our stay. Located in a typical central Amsterdam shop/house it is perfect for getting around by day or night. Rooms are simple but well appointed but like all similar properties the stairs are steep! Loved it and would certainly go back.

Room Tip: Think of your legs. If you need a lower room ask for it.

This gay friendly hotel is in an excellent location with an easy stroll to restaurants on Leidsplein and a little beyond to the beautiful gardens of Vondelpar, and in the other direction to the floating flower market and endless shops on Kalverstraat.
The decor of this hotel is very nice and the room was comfortable - we had a double room on the 2nd floor and it was quiet. The bathroom looked recently updated, and had underfloor heating.
The included breakfast was great with plenty of selection from toast to cereal, to continental with meat and cheese to cooked eggs.
Great hotel and would stay here again if we return to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: I think any room in this hotel would be great.

I recently stayed in the single deluxe room for 4 nights which was the only room located on the 1st floor and it had a private outside terrace area as well. The room was much larger than I had expected and the bathroom was clean and updated. The location of the hotel was perfect. There are 2 gay bars only yards away, and it was a 5 minute walk to the gay street Reguliersdwarsstraat where more bars, restaurants and stores are located. The staff was extremely friendly and informational. If you choose Amistad, request the single deluxe on the first floor. Even if there are 2 of you, there is plenty of room and it is more private as well as quiet than the other rooms. I never once heard noise from the outside, and I even slept with the terrace door open every night.

Room Tip: Single Deluxe on the first floor is the best for quietness and privacy.

Great location, close to everything. The downside to this is the noise from the street during the night, particularly if your room is facing the street from both people and the tram. Despite this, I had a great stay. Good friendly service.

We stayed there for 4 nights, the location is just excellent, everything is close to it though it is on a bit quiet street of the city. The stuff was friendly, very very helpful and really made us feel so comfortable like we were visiting friends. The breakfast is served on a big table so you can meet other people and also is served until 1 pm (first time I've seen something like this). The room was very clean though a bit dark coloured, but I liked that. I would really suggest it to friends.

This is the third time I've stayed at the Amistad and each time I have enjoyed it. Mike and Joost and very welcoming and have good information and advice on places to visit. The location is very convenient to the trams, shopping and bars/clubs. Breakfast goes until 1 PM and you have lots of choices. I will be coming back again soon!
