“romance, art and a lot of fun in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

First of all, I would never feel the real historical, romantic atmosphere of Amsterdam if I stayed anywhere else. When we joined the canal boat tour and we were told about the history of Amsterdam and those historical canal houses we were sure that it would have been a regret if I did not choose Seven Bridges. Because you are in fact in the heart of those intersecting seven bridges which gives the city it's soul.To live and breath the atmosphere of such a history and romance is a bonus in such a beautiful canal house and its a privilege if you look over the canal view and if you stay at canal room 6 like we did. Amsterdam is a city full of museums in which you can experience both art and fun with a wide range of kinds. Are you an art lover would you like to see the paintings of Rembrandt and Vermeer you must visit Rijskmuseum or Van Gogh museum which are partly open but will be opened 100% from 2013 on. Would you like to have fun then you can take the chance to experience the beer producing while being the bottle yourself in Heineken experience or you can learn about the dark side of the Amsterdam torture history with Dungeons(so funny). Sex museum and hush museums are also worth visiting. Red light area always gives opportunities of seeing a different world other than yours so don't miss that opportunity! Anne Frank house, Tuschinsky Theatre, Madamme Tussauds,The Old churh and New Churh,Volendam, Open Floating Flower Market, Vondelpark, are other things to see in Amsterdam.
When you return to your hotel after a loaded itinerary and listen to classical music in a room full of antiques and fresh flowers besides the canal your soul will be purified from all the negatives in your life. The hotel manager Gunter is a real Turkey and Istanbul lover who stole our heart with his chummy,intellectual chat everyday. Unfortunately we could'nt be able to meet Pierre he was on a trip to the Caribbean islands but we are sending our best regards to him and thank him a lot for accepting :-) us to Seven Bridges Hotel after all those e-mails regarding the exotic staircase, which is breathtakingly steep and extremely narrow (look at FAQ in the web site) in your hotel. Thank you very very much for making us feel like we are having our second honeymoon, we fell in love with your hotel and city full of romance,art and a lot of fun.....

Room Tip: canal view room 6 is recommended has a refrigerator, a big enough bathroom with comfy bed.

Well located, with many restaurants and cafes close by. The rooms make this a very interesting place to stay when in Amsterdam. Each room is done up in the traditional style with rich carpets and drapes. Lots of warm colours. The furniture is great too. Old antiques jostle with a modern LCD TV.
The wardrobe a couple of centuries old, with lovely inlay work, even had it's details and price (ahem) written on a sheet of paper inside.
The patio was gorgeous. Made for lazy breakfasts.

On the service, the hotel administration was quick and responsive though I also found them a bit distant (might just be the contrast in service when compared to hotels in India where the staff wants to get to know you and about your day :-)

"A little death", is what i would describe as the postmorterm of a breathtaking experience, an intellectually, as well as spiritually rivetting experience, where for a moment in time, you are out of your body, in another time. I lived through different centuries, different castes, different styles, different points of view. Enveloped by pieces from different eras, An ''intercenturial experience'' i might dare to call it. This is just but the esoteric refference, the review that my soul would not rest unless i shared....
The more rational, idealistic review would allow me to reveal that this hotel is impeccably situated, a minute's walk to the action. Beautiful canals just a stone throw away( thus the name; the seven bridges ) Hearty, well read, travelled and experienced hosts, prepared to share the towns secrets,as far as locations in the city, as well as absolutely must-trys are concerned. Pierre and Günther also offer a simple pleasant chat when intruige steps in their way..
It is clean, it is intellectually and visually stimulizing, it is absolutely pleasant..I enjoyed my stay here and only regret that i cannot have it at least seven days a week... :)
It should not be left out that parking in this busy city is absolutely chaotic, and expensive.!There are several park houses where you can enjoy cheap and practical parking. They are called P+R (park and ride) where you pay 8 Euros per day as well as attain a days metro pass. The Tram station is about five minutes walk away from the hotel. Very practical, if you do not fear to ask incase you are unsure of yourself.
I enjoyed Amsterdam, i hope u all do as well..
I dont work here btw.

We recently stayed at the Seven Bridges Hotel for 2 nights. Our room over-looked the canal. The room was spacious, and had a private bathroom, with a great shower that had plenty of water pressure. The place was perfect! Great location! Extremely helpful staff! Gunter and Pierre are very nice. Gunter was especially helpful to us since we had a lot of trouble finding the hotel. Gunter was supposed to go home at 9, but stayed until midnight, which was when we finally found the hotel. He went up and beyond the call of duty, and this was greatly appreciated. The only draw back was the parking. The hotel does not have any parking, so we had to park on the street. We got a spot in front of the hotel. The parking requires a ticket from a near by parking machine. The cost was almost $60 dollars a day! Be sure to try Indrapura for great Indonesion food. It's a five minute walk from the hotel. Pierre recommended the place, and it was delicious! I highly recommend the Seven Bridges Hotel.....and no I don't work for them.

Room Tip: We stayed in Canal Room B. It was right on the canal. Great room....loved it!

Spent 3 nights in this beautiful quirky creatively furnished hotel - very different from usual run-of-the-mill places. Delightful host with obvious flair for décor.. Very touched to have beautiful vase of bright yellow tulips placed on our chimney-piece during our stay. Good choice of breakfast places in area. Ideal area for museums and sight-seeing. A delightful place to stay and we wish the owners continued success.

Seven Bridges is a lovely and somewhat quirky little hotel within walking distance (20-25 min) of Cantraal Station in the heart of Amsterdam. It is cozy and lovingly furnished and provides an ideal homebase from which to head off on explorations of Amsterdam. This hotel is very friendly, fronts on a canal and is very close to a host of interesting restaurants, bakeries and shops. I look forward to my return.

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. It is well located and we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see in Amsterdam. Tram stops were also convenient.
Our room was large (for the location), warm and comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and well-maintained.
It has its idiosyncratic side which makes for an interesting stay: the room was furnished with 'antiques' including an array of mirrors behind the bed that I was scared would break if we leant against them. Oddest of all though is the fact that there is not usually anyone from the hotel present: we met someone to let us in and someone to check us out but, apart from that, we came and went without any interaction with the management which was a shame because speaking to local people is one of the reasons for travelling ... not that it's hard to find locals to speak to in Amsterdam. Also my wife was left to carry her heavy bag down the steps to the road without an offer of help. It's not a complaint, we just put it down to different cultural attitudes.
Overall it's a comfortable and convenient location for a fun stay in Amsterdam.
