“A gem in the museum district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you can make it up the steep seven steps into Hotel Fita, you have got it made. The location is in a tree filled, quiet section of the city,only a block from the Van Gogh Museum. Easy access to the excellent transit system combined with a staff that will help you find you destinations makes Amsterdam a snap to visit. We found the tram ride to and from the hotel one of the unexpected delights of the visit. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast on our entire trip. (Eggs and bacon to die for, as well as homemade crepes, yum) We enjoyed talking with the young man who bought this hotel three years ago, and is making Hotel Fita a wonderful hideaway in Amsterdam. I would not stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: We had a fan and a large room on the second floor.

Very nice hotel. Great breakfast. Our room was spacious clean and comfortable. I had an accident while in Amsterdam and every one made sure I had the care I needed. Great location to walk to all museums. Buy your tickets at the hotel to bypass long lineups at museum, we must have saved an hour of waiting. The staff is very friendly. We have been there twice and would go back again.

What a fantastic experience! Centrally located charming hotel with impeccable service. Rooms are very clean, killer breakfast with the most welcoming and helpful staff. Get you Van Gogh museum tickets from the front desk to avoid the long lines.

Excellent location so close to Van Gogh and newly renovated Rijksmuseum, shops, cafes, supermarket and tram stops. Staff very friendly and helpful with delightful, youthful energy and enthusiasm! Our twin room was spacious and light with very good facilities and excellent block out drapes (there was a lot of noise initially from an outside playground / kindergarten when we arrived on a Friday but this abated after 6pm and holidays started on the Monday). Breakfast was excellent quality, range and quantity and the downstairs eating space was welcoming and inviting. We loved Amsterdam and this small, privately owned hotel (15 rooms) added to our enjoyment because of the location, the relaxed, yet efficient and friendly environment and the people working in it.

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking the kindergarten / open courtyard would be quieter

Hard to know where to start: physical location or people? OK - location first. From my room I could just see the Van Gogh Museum. We wanted to stay as close as possible to the Museumplein and the wonderful thing about Hotel Fita is that it's in a quiet street parallel to the busy street running along the edge of the Museumplein, a couple of minutes to the Concertgebouw. Because it's next to an infants / junior primary school, you have the feeling of a living city, with a hundred or more kids being dropped off by parents as you eat breakfast in the airy breakfast room. This juxtaposition of two of the world's most important galleries (Rijksmuseum and VGM) and a school whose playground is formed by putting up some very informal barriers across the street made me think: This is a real city that accommodates its own people and the people passing through like us. I loved that. Other things about hotel: only 15 rooms (I think); superb breakfast (anybody who misses the pancakes is nuts - apologies to those who can't eat pancakes). Now to people: Queenie and Roel and the other lovely young people at Hotel Fita are the kind of people who make travelling a joy. You think: Why have I left it so long to come back to the Netherlands? When can I come again? I'm already thinking about next year. Thanks, Roel - no wonder Hotel Fita is No 5 of 337 hotels in Amsterdam! I will have to book a long way ahead (and if my review makes that even more necessary, I will be very happy). LOVE YOU. THANK YOU. BEST WISHES. Brett Sydney Australia

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.
