“Convenient and comfortable place with old charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

A note of appreciation to our helpful and accomodating host Pierre and all staff of this hotel for making our stay comfortable. We stayed in room 5 which is tastefully decorated and considered big in a canal house hotel. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to most attractions of this beautiful city. As Amsterdam is an expensive city, this hotel is good value for what it offers.

Writing this the night before we reluctantly leave Amsterdam: undoubtedly the best hotel we've stayed in over many years visiting this wonderful city. I was warned that our room (8) might be noisy but far from it - the quietest room we've ever had!. Criticisms? None......

Seven Bridges is in a pleasant location at the intersection of two canals - which makes it easier to find as you struggle to familiarize yourself with the radially-oriented map of Amsterdam. Our room - Garden #4 - was surprisingly smaller than you might think from the website photograph, taken with a wide angle lens to cover the room in a single shot. The bed is low to the floor and there is not much room around it. The sitting area is a bit cramped (if you like to have your luggage in the room with you). The large windows look into a large tree, which is not unpleasant, but not what comes to mind with a "garden view." The bathroom is also very small and water temp was challenging to regulate. A/C controls were not obvious, but necessary to overcome the somewhat humid room. We slept well on a thick foam mattress. Internet access was free but very slow.
The proprietors are helpful when approached, assisting us with a car to the airport, fax correspondence from the US, and locating neighborhood resources.
In short - this is not a room where you are likely to hang out during the day, but a comfortable, well-situated, nicely appointed place to sleep each night you stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: A ground floor room removes the need to climb narrow stairs with luggage, and the garden rooms are l...

This was our visit to Amsterdam and this hotel won our heart with its laid back charm, fantastic location and very friendly host.The winding staircase can get tricky for some people.We loved the residential feel of the location and yet be able to walk to the popular square (Rembrantplien) in 5 minutes. This will be our go-to hotel for all future Amsterdam visits.

We wanted somewhere special for myself and daughter, who was flying in from London, to remember on our first visit to Amsterdam, especially as it was the occasion of both our birthdays. My wife and I had Room 6 overlooking the canal and my daughter Room 4 overlooking the garden
What can we say that has not been said before on facebook re The Seven Bridges!
The rooms were furnished like being in an Antique Shop and added to the ambiance of the hotel. The proprietors were extremely helpful re pointing us in the right directions, especially the breakfast for 1.50 euros, and sorting us a taxi to the airport for the Sunday morning, which dispensed with the hassle of getting to the station and then a train to Schipol airport.
The hotel is well situated for all the sights and being slightly off 'the main drag' was relatively quiet except for occasional canal boat parties, although these were few and far between.
We do intend to return to Amsterdam in the future (we always leave some sights so that there is a reason to return) and would have no hesitation in returning to The Seven Bridges and would heartily recommend the hotel to other visitors.

Room Tip: If our room and my daughters were anything to go by we would recommend any that are available.

We absolutely loved this place. You need to book directly via email and then call in your credit card number instead of booking directly on line, but that's really not a big deal.

Our room was huge and decorated with lovely antiques - it wasn't fussy or modern, but instead cozy and relaxed. The room was also quiet, and the bed was very comfortable.The WiFi was lightning-fast, and the room prices are an amazing value in an expensive city.

The hotel is about 5 minutes from Rembrandtplein, with plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as trams, ATMs and a grocery store that's open until fairly late. In addition, there are some really nice restaurants nearby and on Utrechtstraat, a 5 or 10 minute walk away. It's a great base from which to explore Amsterdam.

Pierre and Gunther are charming, friendly and helpful hosts and really make you feel at home. The in-room breakfasts are very good and reasonably priced.

The rooms are accessed by a narrow, Dutch-style winding staircase, so that may be a drawback for some people. And if you're looking for a sleek, modern hotel where your every whim will be fulfilled by a full-time staff, this place may not be for you. Otherwise, it can't be beat.

We have just been back for our third visit to Hotel Seven Bridges in last 20 years. It is still a great place to stay, beautiful old canal house, quirky style, excellent service. We stayed for 5 nights in Suite C, in a separate canal house (first floor) but still part of the hotel. Brought our granddaughter this time and suite suited us perfectly as we had a separate bedroom and she had comfy sofabed in living area (which overlooks the canal). There is even a proper fridge which was very useful. It felt like our own little apartment. We love this place and will return.

Room Tip: Suite C is excellent for families and for those who like canal views.
