“Nice hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Very good location with everything within walking distance. The staff were very professional and friendly. My room was spacious and I could feel comfortable. Bath products were nice, bathroom in my room was also acious though no tub even though one could have easily fit. Nice view to the channel. Breakfast was good but expensive.
No free WiFi-access available.

We had a superior room, was very big comfortable and clean. Not too much noise, mostly from the penthouse above. Would go there again.

Can't argue with the other reviews here. Location is good - just out of the city centre but within walking distance to everything; our room (at the top) was spacious, clean and cosy (although we had to endure two single beds put together rather than a 'proper' double, not unusual in Northern Europe, but I loathe this). It's got lots of character, and lots of stairs (not a problem for me, but might be for some); the main problem as others have noted is the street noise, which basically continues all night, so avoid if you want something quiet.

Stayed at Dikker in September 2011. Absolutely the best location. Others complained about noise, etc. We had a room with balcony overlooking canal. It was so interesting watching the boaters. Not a problem at all. Room was a superior room with king bed, very large with wonderful amenities. If there was one fault was that the room had a tub with shower. It was very slippery when wet so be very careful getting in and out. Found staff very helpful answering questions. Again, great location for museums and general sightseeing in a good area. Does appear pricey but it's Amsterdam and a boutique hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for canal view, costs more but it is worth it!

Stayed with my wife 3 nights on 1st Oct. (her birthday present). We had a large double on the 2nd floor. The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean. From other reviews we were well aware of the noise level from trams and late night revellers. We missed breakfast as we went to bed late and it would have been a struggle to get up early. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a Starbucks just opp. the hotel. The staff are very nice and helpful. Then the location. Just a minute from Leidesplein with all its bars restaurants coffee shops night clubs and so near to the museums. So for all of these our next stay will surely be the Dikker again.

My son and I stayed here for 4 nights mid september. We had a very large room with twin beds and a seating area that had doors with Juliette balcony overlooking the canal. Had not booked a canal view room but were given one anyway. Our room was on the 2nd floor around the corner from all the noise of trams and late night drinkers so we weren't bothered by any noise.Had breakfast on 2 occasions had plenty of choice but somewhat extorionate price of 17 euros.Reception staff variable mostly pleasant but one staff member pretty disinterested answering questions.Internet in our room poor signal so mostly used the lounge area on 2nd floor for internet access.
Thought overall rather expensive but location very central to Museums, Anne Frank house and lovely Jordaan area.Would use hotel again

Room Tip: Go for a room overlooking the canal

The room was a disappointment : the bed was packed between 2 walls, which means the only possibility to go to bed was from the feet side. No space to put glasses or a watch. Furthermore, the room was overall noisy, as the phonic isolation seemed weak. I wrote an email to the staff to mention those points, but never received any answer...
