“What a Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Easily the friendliest and most helpful of all the hotels we stayed in over Europe. Tea and coffee making facilites in the room and an iron and ironing board! These are the norm in our part of the world but next to impossible to find in Europe and what a delightful difference it makes to your ease of stay. Located on a quiet street, but literally a couple of minutes walk from Amsterdam's cultural hub and tram stops, and about 5 minutes walk from its shopping and entertainment madness. Was expecting the room to be quite small, but it turned out to be the largest we had stayed in with a great sized bathroom. Perfect.

i have now stayed at Hotel Fita twice; last year in February and just recently at the end of June. I would recommend Hotel Fita to friends because of its: family run style; the location which can't be better, close to trams, downtown and the museums plus shopping; breakfast a wonderful start to the day; the area feels like you are part of the Amsterdam community. Even though there is no air conditioning being able to open the windows, is to my way of thinking, better. Room was nicely arranged, and bathroom very roomy. A hotel to consider when you are planning your stay in Amsterdam.

Wonderful family-run hotel, friendly, service. Our room had a small balcony and beautiful view for the three of us. My daughter and I almost turned down the delicious homemade"pancakes" but we were glad we tried them they were so tasty. Walking distance to museums. We would definitely stay here again.

This was the best decision that I could have made; a small, quiet location in the middle of culture. In a very short period of time, I learned to ride the tram (right around the corner), walked to the museums, and felt very comfortable and safe. I relaxed and refreshed. The breakfast was just enough to get me going, but not enough to weigh me down. Everyone was welcoming, friendly, and helpful.

Room Tip: Great place for someone traveling solo and doesn't need a lot of room.

We stayed at Hotel Fita based on the TA reviews. Other reviews have noted it is more like a B&B and this is a reasonable comment. This is not a negative, simply an observation.

Our room was very good, although showing its age a little. We arrived in Amsterdam in the middle of a heat wave - no air conditioning meant the ceiling fans got a good workout. The double bed was actually two single beds pushed together with a significant gap in the middle - this seems to be a common practice in European hotels.

The location is brilliant - in a quiet street, but close to multiple trams and a seven iron away from the key museums, something greatly appreciated when we slept in on our first morning, for our booked time slot at the Van Gogh Museum.

The highlight of this hotel is the service - incredibly helpful and absolutely faultless.

Hotel Fita is a terrific option for the tourist in Amsterdam.

We stayed at Hotel Fita for two nights and had a fabulous stay. The service was excellent, the room was spacious, the breakfast was delicious. We were able to easily get around using the trams or walking and they provided lots of tips on places to see. The owners were very friendly and the service exceeded our expectations.

This is truly a family run hotel. Vey special. Room was a bit on the small side but vey comfy. Excellent location hidden in a beautiful tree lined street. Very close to trams and walking distance to major sights. Just around the corner from van gogh museum. Easy to get to from the train station. The breakfast was very nice especially with their speciality of home made pancakes ....very delicious ....the only downside was no air conditioning, our room was very hot. Other than that loved it.
