We visited Amsterdam for 3 nights as a little treat for my birthday and chose Seven Bridges Hotel as we wanted a traditional Dutch hotel in a great location. We emailed a few months ahead, they were quick to respond stating which rooms were available. When we arrived we were not disappointed, it really is such a pretty hotel. They told us in advance the stairs were steep, and my word they are! But this added to the traditional feel of the building and made for some funny photos. We stayed in room 10, which was one of the cheapest rooms, it was right up in the attic and very quaint. However it was the only place I couldn't get wi-fi. The room was basic, there wasn't a safe or tea making facilities but it provided what we needed. The hotel is in such a great location. We were originally looking at Leidseplein but Rembrandt Plein is far nicer. On arrival Pierre gave us a map and highlighted where things were (the bakery in V&D he pointed out is amazing). It's very close to bike hire, Starbucks, lots of cafés and restaurants. We were able to walk to Vondel Park, Red Light District, Leidseplein, Dam Square all from the hotel. Jordaan was quite a walk but still doable. Pierre was such a pleasure the whole time. Extremely helpful telling us the weather and allowing us to print our boarding passes, he even sent up a bottle of champagne as it was my birthday. They also provided us with a light complimentary breakfast on our last morning. Pierre, Gunter and Erik pride themselves on customer service which is so natural, there is no 'fakeness'. They are just very nice, polite gentlemen. We would definitely recommend this hotel, it is a little treasure.
