“So nice, so friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We have stayed at the hotel for four nights at the beginning of May. Nice old building, friendly and helpful staff. The location is great - 5 min from Amsterdam Centraal even with luggage. Rooms are small but cozy and warm. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was good and yummy. Only one shortcoming - low water pressure for people with fine hair can be a problem))) But everything else was Ok! Will certainly stay again!
Ask for the Canal view.

Room Tip: Ask for the Canal view.

The location of this smallish hotel is ideal. Close to the central train station, adjacent to the Singel Canal, next door to the Jordan district which offers a huge selection of shops, restaurants, grocery stores, erc.

The rooms are small and minimalist, but the beds are comfortable. Wifi connection is ubiquitous throughout the hotel. Our room looked out over the busy city scene of the Singel Canal.

Staff here are helpful and set a standard of hotel excellence in service. Overall, the Singel Hotel is one of those places that make a visit to a city a pleasant experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Having stayed in a number of hotels in Amsterdam, usually chain types like The Marriott or Crowne Plaza, we booked this for a 2 night break having previously spotted it as we strolled around Amsterdam.
The rooms are small and basic but clean and serviceable and within walking distance of the station. Our twin room had a lovely canal view and unusually for most hotels you could open the window! The shower room was clean and contained a great shower in the "wet room" style.
Breakfast was included and a lovely young girl ensured that a table was cleared and prepared for us each morning. Choices included a variety of fresh breads and croissants, boiled eggs, cereals, yoghurt and a selection of sliced cheese and meat with fresh coffee.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and really made our stay special. Other reviewers have complained about the noise but we didn't experience any disturbance to our comfortable night's sleep. Will definitely return!

Its a good place, at a good price and at a good location...the rooms could be better, but the hospitality makes up for it...the wifi sucks...but all in all...its peaceful...centrally located and the staff makes sure you know how to find your way around before you leave the hotel...don't expect an out of the world experience, and the place wont disappoint...

Perfect location and good value for the money! Very helpful staff and had a fine but very small room with a view to the canal! We had a perfect vacation and the hotel was a part of that! The breakfast was a little "poor" though.
