“Wonderful hotel experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I just spent 4 nights at the wonderful Hotel Fita and would highly recommend it. As a single traveler, I felt very safe. The location could not be beat - literally around the corner from the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum and a short block to the tram (#2 and #5) which took me everywhere I needed to go. Be sure to take advantage of buying tickets at the hotel for both of the above-mentioned hotels - it will save you a great deal of time by not having to wait in lines. My room (#24) was HUGE - the only downside for others might be the fact is right above the playground for pre-school children and could be noisy. But, I did not find this to be a problem. The staff was absolutely incredible, taking time to answer all of my questions, recommending restaurants, canal cruises, etc. The breakfast was great and the pancakes are not to be believed!

Just spent 3 nights at Hotel Fita and loved how close it was to the museums. It is in an upscale part of town that has nice restaurants, close to the park and all transportation. Roel and staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. Breakfast was fresh and pancakes were delicious. On Roel's suggestion, we took the 197 bus from the airport for 4 Euros each and it brought us down the block from the hotel- super easy.

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.
