“Sweet little hotel. Will definitely go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

In the excellent location, just a couple of stops from Dame square, walking distance to Van Gough museum. Quite a large room, very clean and very very nice view go the canal. The breakfast was very good and in the beautiful breakfast room. Ask for room with a view!

I have stayed in Amsterdam many times, usually using a ' corporate ' hotel, so this was a real change.
The location is excellent - near to Leidseplein and tram stops. Our room was unusually spacious for this city, and was very comfortable. The bar and restaurant was closed on the Sunday night that we stayed, but both looked well presented. The staff were very efficient and friendly.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and will stay there again the next time I visit Amsterdam.

Dikker & Thijs is situated just around the corner from Leidseplein, in the middle of "everything" in Amsterdam. The rooms are quite large and with different lay-outs, which makes the stay more personal.

When my husband an I and Our friends visited a couple of weeks ago, we had a terrific stay, and the staff was polite and helpful.

Room Tip: Trying to sleep on a saturday night in a room facing Leidsestraat was not not a sucsess ...

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The people at the reception were very pleasant. We booked the Canal District 2013 Package and were not disappointed. The room faced the canal with good wifi. It was a nice size room and the bathroom had a good shower.The breakfast was included in the rate and was the typical European breakfast. The location is great if you want to be in the Leidsplein area.

Room Tip: No information about any of the other rooms---I do not want my name or email address published

Really great area and i found it nice and quiet, my room was canal side not on the main street which would be noisier. The room was and hotel décor is a bit worn but everything was clean. the staff were friendly and accommodating. breakfast was really good too but at 15 euros extra make sure you get breakfast included. My room was a bit small so for a couple with an infant it would be too small but my collogue had a room 50 % bigger at the same standard

We stayed at Dikker et Thijs Hotel in October for two days and were very satsfied with our overall experience; location, room and the staff. Next time in Amsterdam, we may, most likely, plan to stay there again.

We had a small problem in the bathroom and the staff were really engaged with it and solved the matter quickly. They also send us a small box of chocolate for the inconvenience. Appreciated much!

Room Tip: Upper floor with a canal view is recommended.

I really liked the location, ( great for restaurants galore and museums) and the size and quality of the room and pleasant staff. I had requested a quiet room, which was honored. Unfortunately the quiet room overlooked a small square backing onto business and residential homes. So we had to listen to a party until 5.30 on the first night complete with thumping bass and constant screaming, had to get my husband to get earplugs from lobby, so my first full day was exhausting and felt sick with tiredness. Second night only slightly better (they finished at 3.50). It is that kind of area so you will probably hear screaming and siren (police etc) throughout the night.
