“Charm and grace in Amsteredam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2009

The Seven Bridges hotel is as charming and graceful a hotel as you will find in Amsterdam. The hotel is along the Reguliersgracht, where it intersects with the Keizersgracht, (giving you a view of at least seven bridges.) The rooms vary in size and furnishings from a cozy, beamed third floor room to elegant, antique filled rooms on the lower floors. The staff were very kind and helpful, with good suggestions for dining as well as travelling. Instead of the typical bland breakfast buffet, the Seven Bridges brings your breakfast to your room; croissants and different breads, cheeses, ham and jams, fresh fruit, yogurt as well as juice and coffee or tea. The hotel has a perect location, just a few minutes stroll south of the Rembrandtplein. My criteria for selecting a hotel location are safety, quiet and especially good proximity to restaurants. The Seven Bridges hotel is located between Utrechtsestraat and Reguliersdwarsstraat which are lined with some of the best restaurants in Amsterdam. The only downside is the hotel's web-site which does not allow for on-line booking. However, don't be dissuaded - a quick phone call and a helpful staff person gave us the perfect room. The rooms vary in size, furnishings and rfates, so a room for most every budget is possible. - a great stay.

My wife and I stayed here for four days during the week of March 1. The location is great and so is the view. It's close to the large museums and there are numerous shops, cafes, and restaurants nearby. We had booked one of the smallest rooms on the top floor but a larger room (#7) was available for the first two days. It was a beautiful room with large windows looking out onto the canal. The antiques were gorgeous and each morning we were served an enormous breakfast that we could eat while gazing out our window. (The china service was different every day.) For the final two days of our stay, we were in the small room (#10) which had exposed beams and lots of small windows. It was not as opulent as the first room but it was clean, cozy, and had lots of character. In fact, it's character that I want to emphasize. Our rooms, and a few others we got to peek at, were very well designed and decorated. Each was different and all were far superior to a room at a very good chain hotel. The owner was very responsive and helpful. He even delivered a computer to our room after I mentioned that I was having a difficult time accessing the wireless network with my own. One caveat: mind the stairs! There are 46 stairs to the top floor and they are steep! I hope to return to Amsterdam soon and this hotel will be at the top of my list.

We stayed in the room at the top of the house -- #10 I believe -- and were rewarded with a beautiful view of the gardens behind several of the adjacent canal houses. The location could not be better, and the service/staff were excellent. The furnishings in our room showed terrific attention to detail and the breakfast was hearty and delicious. I highly recommend the hotel.

Bit late in reviewing this hotel but can only echo the great reviews given by so many others. We stayed in Room C, a few doors down from the main hotel. Breakfast is not served in this building but there was a fridge and eating utensils in the room. It was nice to head off to the local supermarket to buy supplies and then have a leisurely breakfast each morning the room. Room C is large and comfortable with beautiful views over the canal. Wireless internet was also available and free.
The only minor thing we found was that the morning light came into the bedroom from the main sitting area, waking us up early. The yellow blinds in the room are not made from blackout fabric and let the sunlight through. It's a minor point though and certainly would not prevent a 100% recommendation for this hotel.

My wife and I stayed in Room 5 last weekend - what a uniquely good experience it was on every level. The two Partners were most efficient and gracious, the decor splendid and having breakfast delivered to your room each morning is an added bonus.
Exceptional value for money. Do not hesitate. We shall be back there ourselves next time.

The Seven Bridges was absolutely fabulous. It looked good at the internet site, but in real life it looks even better. The location of the hotel is probably the best in Amsterdam, at a picturesque crossing of two canals (check out their site, www.sevenbridgeshotel.nl), 200 meters from the busy district. So you have the advantage of staying in a beautiful, quiet residential neighborhood, whereas at any time it takes you 3 minutes to reach the lively, busy city center. It takes less than 30 minutes of walking to reach any other place of interest or 5 minutes in the tram (there is a station nearby). Interestingly, there were hardly any tourists although the weather was not too bad (a little bit of drizzle, temperatures in the range of 6-15 Celsius) so it seems like a good season to tour Amsterdam.
We stayed in room C. The room is magnificent (again, just look at the site but the pictures underestimate). You enter a 17th century house and climb a surprisingly steep staircase into a rather spacious room, which includes a living room with a view of the canal and the bridge, a bedroom, and a bathroom. Everything is furnished in great taste with beautiful antique furniture and the organization is very comfortable. It is evident that someone really thought about every detail.
The staff is extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. We are not very well organized so we booked the hotel at the last minute. The booking was very smooth and in 5 minutes we got a confirmation email with all the necessary details from Günter, who welcomed us at 9 AM. As he had promised, the room was ready although it was much earlier than the standard check-in time. The level of service is very impressive, especially for a small hotel that cannot hire a large staff. Everyone in this hotel is courteous and effective. Among the amenities is a free laptop that you can borrow if you do not want to carry around your own (the internet connection is also free). Günter also organized for us a taxi to the airport at a discounted price.
To conclude, this is a real gem which we fully recommend to anyone and, of course, we hope to return soon.

If you like atmosphere, nice furnitures, great canal view, perfect location, and attentive service, go straight to 7 bridges.

I was there this week and this will be "my" place whenever i go back to Amsterdam
