“great hotel and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I stayed for two nights in Oct.
Great location. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
Excellent breakfast. Clean, well managed hotel. Staff made recommendations to local restaurants which were outstanding.
As with other European hotels, the two single beds pushed together to make a double bed were somewhat uncomfortable.
Overall we highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if we ever visit Amsterdam again.

We stayed four nights at Hotel Fita. Great location and helpful staff, although the staff is rarely seen in the evening. They give you a front door key to return when they are not present at the desk. Nice breakfast including Dutch pancakes and good coffee. We loved the size of the room, the tub, and the espresso machine inside the room. Two tram stops are within a five minute walk from the hotel. The area seemed affluent and safe. Two areas of improvement for the room we had are the mattresses and soundproofing. Our room was on the top floor and faced a youth hostel and what seemed to be a daycare. These two neighbors provided an unusual amount of noise both day and night which could be mitigated with better windows. Don't worry about sleeping through breakfast - the kids will have you up by 9AM on the weekdays. The mattress was not on par with the other European hotels we stayed at on this vacation. It was comparable to the one issued to me in the Marines. Overall a very good hotel with a couple small areas for improvement.

We stayed at Hotel Fita October 2013 and I have to say it was the most perfect location for us. A short tram ride from the Old City of Amsterdam, it offered clean and lovely accommodations, gracious host and hostesses and breakfasts that filled you up. I would not hesitate to recommend this small family run hotel to friends and colleagues and would definitely return if I visit Amsterdam again.

Very friendly and helpful welcome. Nicest owner and staff. Very clean, nice sized rooms. Very quiet at night. Fun and excellent breakfast. Great coffee and pancakes and other good stuff. Really liked the Dutch yogurt and cheese. Close to museums.

We just loved our stay at the Fita hotel and enjoyed the service of the staff who always went out of their way to make you feel at home. Position is fantastic, we normally don't catch public transport but in Amsterdam they told us trams are the best way to go. The tram was only 2 minutes walk and they were so efficient we used them everyday to get to our tour pick up destinations, Room was pleasant, we found the room a little noisy because of the street noise but if we closed the shutters it helped a lot and we had no problems sleeping.
Everyone talks about the breakfasts and I was not prepared to be so surprised because we have travelled a lot over our years and I can honestly say it was the very best breakfast.
Lovely hotel, lovely staff you will not be disappointed at this hotel.

It is a great hotel, I would come back, if I had a complaint it would be that you hardly see anyone, you only have to call and someone is there to help you with what're it is you need, I know it is not large so that would be why. You feel secure as you have to use your key to get I. To the foyer and if you are checking in there is an intercom.
Breakfast is very good and you have a pod coffee maker in your room with a jug should you wish. Yo make tea or instant Coffee etc.
You are given a map when you check in and are given suggestions for things to do plus shown on the map the best ways to get around.
My room was over the entry on the second floor and the street was quiet.
The next street that runs parallel is great for shopping or window shopping, depending on your pocket, all are designer brands, you name it and it is there.

It's great to be so close to the Museums and the galleries (you can almost see the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum from the hotel), to the shops and the canals, but what really sets this hotel apart is the hospitality and enthusiasm of the staff and the genuine feel of homeliness. Nothing was too much trouble for the them, whether it be advising us on where to go and what to see, or the special Dutch pancakes specially made to order at breakfast, which was already full and varied . They also sent us to a local seafood restaurant which served the best fish I have had in years. The rooms, though not large, are beautifully clean. All of Old Amsterdam is walkable from this hotel but is set in a very peaceful and charming area away from the traffic, where even the youngest kids play in the street.
