My husband and I enjoyed a delightful stay in this warm, welcoming hotel. we were in Amsterdam for only a few days, not long enough to thoroughly enjoy our eerie on the top floor. Our room was delightfully appointed, with two windows, giving us great views of the city from two aspects. A tiny balcony enabled us to get good photos of the rooftops. Breakfast was served in the basement restaurant and again was served with care and warmth. The staff were always courteous and helpful, assisting us in finding restaurants within easy walking distance and helping us to book cruises etc. We could easily walk to the museums and art galleries using one of their umbrellas to ward off the rain!
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, and on my next visit to Amsterdam I have every intention of staying there again! hoping to get the same room and meet the same, friendly staff.

Room Tip: Go high! Views are amazing.

Very pleasant welcome, room presentable and clean with two easy chairs, table, desk and bedside cabinets, tea/coffee facilities, shower over bath, television, hairdryer and all toiletries provided.

Good guidance from staff what to see and do, whatever we asked for we were advised about.

A very pleasant stay and would definitely stay here again if we return to Amsterdam.

Use the bus 197 from Amsterdam Airport, stops 400 metres from the hotel, a short walk to the Hotel and only cost 4 Euros each as opposed to getting a taxi which would cost 45 Euros.

The Hotel is within easy reach/walking distance of all sight seeing venues in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We chose a room with a view over the canal, very picturesque.

if you are not looking for a 5 star hotel, but a good one in the best location, this is the for you.
1 minute walk from the Leidseplein, a tram station at the front of the hotel, the room are not big but well organized and well fitured.
please take in considoration that there is no "Loby ". just a reception and then rooms.
we've had no noise from the tram, yet i can understand the reviews with a notice, if your room is facing the street.
ask for a high floor

Room Tip: ask for a room on a high floor

We booked one night in this hotel. Whilst driving to Amsterdam, one hour before arriving, we received a phone call from the hotel that there had been an overbooking! They had booked us in another hotel already, without consulting us. Really annoying considering we carefully planned the trip and now lost time looking for parking space etc.
You would expect a small gesture, but nothing. They "upgraded" the room in the new hotel, so they said, but that was the least of our worries.
An overbooking is one thing, but last minute is something I have a hard time understanding.

Agnetha t, Marketing / Sales Department at Dikker & Thijs Fenice Hotel, responded to this review, December 24, 2013
Dear Mr. Mario,

Thank you for your reaction concerning your overbooking last weekend. We contacted you before arriving at our hotel, so you could drive direct to the Victoria Hotel, the hotel we booked for you. Next to the Victoria Hotel is a very big public parking, so you could park close by. We arranged, as compensation for the inconvenience, upgraded accommodation is this superior 4 star Hotel at the same price you reserved in our hotel.
We understand your disapointment and we will upgade you to our Penthouse Suite, without any extra charges, during your next visit to Amsterdam. Please refer tot this correspondence.
We wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2014. Kind regards, Agnetha ten Hove | Dikker & Thijs Fenice Hotel

Stayed with a friend for a couple of nights early December. Couldn't have picked a better hotel. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do, and we walked almost everywhere (although there is a tram stop is just across the road). We were delighted with the very spacious and clean room which was on the 5th floor and easily accessible from the lift. Although we didn't book a canal view, we were able to see the Prinsengracht canal and had a fantastic view across Amersterdam from the balcony, which was a lovely and unexpected surprise. The great location of the hotel does however, mean some noise from the street below at night, the level of which of course depends on who is doing the partying!

Breakfast options were good with plenty of choices of breads, pastries, boiled eggs, cold meats and cheeses, along with hot bacon and scrambled eggs.

Hotel staff were professional, helpful and very pleasant. Taxi service used by the hotel was a very reasonable rate and actually cheaper than a shuttle service.

Would not hesitate to stay here again and am already thinking about planning another trip.

This is a very nice hotel in the middle of the Leidseplein area and a nice walk from all the main areas in Amsterdam. It also has a tram stop for 3 of the main trams directly going to the Amsterdam Central Station just in front of the Hotel.

Hotel offers very spacious rooms with free wifi which was perfrect. Breakfast is a bit poor and is not included in price would not take it. Some rooms are not accessible direct from lift and some steps going up or down are required to be taken.

All in all a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Up until a certain time the tram bells can be heard.
