“Best little hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I spent 3 nights at Hotel Fita. I had a single room which was small, but it had everything I could need and was clean and quiet. The hotel has a great breakfast included. It is also situated very close to the Rijksmuseum and Leidesplein. But most importantly, the staff at Hotel Fita were outstanding, very nice and helpful. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I'm a single gal who wanted someplace safe, well located, and nice. Without breaking the bank.
The room was tiny. So what? The location is top notch, and the staff could not be nicer.
Stay here, go with 26 (nice terrace) and enjoy the first class breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for 26 or similar with big windows, and the terrace.

Hotel Fita is in a great location, practically right beside the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum and within easy walk of the rest of the city of Amsterdam. There is a fantastic bus that goes to the Schipol, that leaves less than 5 minutes walk away.
The staff were incredibly friendly and hospitable. We were quite late reaching the hotel and got a great reception upon arrival. Also any recommendations we received from the staff were fantastic, as well as a run through of the map of Amsterdam to help get us sorted.
Breakfast was great - the pancakes were unmissable!

Room Tip: Avoid downstairs room - can hear noise from street level

This was our first time in Amsterdam and we could not have chosen a better hotel! We would definitely stay here every single time. First of all, the hotel is perfectly located. It's right at the start of all the canals and it is very close to the museums (including Van Gogh). Once you get in, the rooms are beautiful and worth more than what you end up paying. The amenities are wonderful including the "honor bar" when you need a beer or snack late at night. And the free breakfast is better than what you get at any restaurant.

But nothing compares to the warm hospitality and genuine friendliness of the owner of the hotel. We needed to do laundry and he offered to take care of our laundry at no extra charge! Its small things like that which make this hotel great. Its the best kept secret in Amsterdam.

Together with my wife, I stayed 6 days in Fita at the beginning of september.
The hotel is very well placed, very close to the main Amsterdam museums and 30-40 minutes walk from downtown. Also, there is easy acces from the airport by bus 197 that has a stop very close to the hotel. In the surroundings of Leidseplein, which is very close, there are lots of restaurants where you can try all kind of food (argentinian, greek, asian…).
At the check-in, althought we had booked and paid for a spacious room (27 m2) we were given a small one (14 m2). Immediately we asked to be accomodated in type of room we had paid for, but Roel lied to us saying that this is really a spacious room. We had to insist and to tell him that we have already seen pictures of the rooms on internet and we know what we were talking about. Finally, he moved us in the appropriate room which was obvious much larger than the first one. It was not a mistake, it was clearly an attempt to cheat on us, giving us a cheaper room than the one we had paid for. It was not a good beginning in this hotel.
Otherwise, the staff is very kind and helpful and the room is very well kept. The tea and coffee makers in the room were very useful. The WiFi was also good. There is no minibar in the room, but you can help yourself with a beer or a soft drink from a refrigerator placed in the basement.
On the other hand, the breakfast is the weakest aspect of this hotel. It laks variety (even for a 3 stars hotel) and even quantity. Every morning the same thing: yellow cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, a few vegetables and fruits. Additionally, one could order pancakes, which were too sweet for our taste. Moreover, at the buffet we never found more than 7-8 very small and thin slices of cheese, 6-7 very thin slices of tomatos and cucumbers, a few pieces of bacon, 2-3 helpings of eggs. These quantities vanished very fast, and the personnel was not very hurried to add new food.
All in all, it’s not a bad hotel but the staff could improve some things to make it better.

We enjoyed our stay in August. The staff is friendly and helpful; the room was clean and nice sized; beds were comfortable; the pancakes were yummy. The location was great..near the Van Gogh Museum and close to the tram and bus lines.
