“Hotel Fita is superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Just spent four nights at the Hotel Fita. Rather than repeat all the enthusiastic comments already shared, I'll just extend my congratulations to Roel and his team for providing a wonderful hotel in a terrific location, at great value, and with sincere enthusiasm and care. I could not have been more pleased.

Visiting Amsterdam for the first time we spent two nights at this well placed yet quiet retreat - Hotel Fita. Greeted and welcomed by Roel on arrival, our room was ready ahead of time and we were off to see the sights within an hour of landing at Schiphol Airport. We were on the second floor in a spacious double-bedded room which Roel showed us to himself. Our bed was very comfortable enabling a good sleep on night one.

There is no doubting the commitment and helpfulness of Roel and his staff. We knew from the start that the Staff would help us with any question we had regarding restaurants, places of interest or direction of the 197 bus back to the airport.

The following morning our breakfast was taken from a good continental/English selection. Perfect Dutch pancakes were made for us and arrived fresh at the table. A real treat.

Free Wi-Fi worked well: be careful of the hot water in the bathrooms, it was very very hot!

We will definitely go back to Hotel Fita again. It really was as every other TripAdvisor Review has described it.

Quiet hotel in a great location, close to the Van Gogh and Rijks museums.

We had a room at the top which had recently been refurbished but missing a few finishing touches like a plug in the sink, a toilet paper holder and the shower could do with a system to drain the water away. The MDF furniture in the room may not be to everybody's taste and the safe is on the floor which involves going on your hands and needs to use it. But there is no faulting the friendly staff who are enthusiastic and helpful. Breakfast is a good buffet selection and includes delicious pancakes. A great way to start the day before exploring all that Amsterdam has to offer.

We chose Hotel Fita based on reviews on Trip Advisor. Couldn't be more pleased....location was excellent, lovely neighborhood, very easy walk to the museums. The room (single) was very pleasant, clean and comfortable. Free wifi worked well in the room.
We looked forward to our delicious breakfast each morning,....make sure to try the pancakes, we always left room for them!
Overall Hotel Fita is a wonderful hotel with a homey atmosphere. Thank you Roel, your pride of ownership certainly shows. A special thanks to Maxine also.
I will definitely return to Hotel Fita on future trips to Amsterdam, no need to look further.

We met friends and stayed in this small hotel prior to a river cruise departing from Amsterdam. The personal service was excellent and friendly. The included breakfast was superb. The staff could not have been more helpful in terms of making us feel thoroughly at home both in the property and the city. The recommended restaurants, suggested the best routes to various attractions, and made the stay and visit most memorable.

This was our third visit to Amsterdam en route from South Africa to Scotland. The hotel is brilliantly situated for the main museums, and we came in by bus from the airport thus saving a good amount on taxi fares as they are expensive. The hotel is walkable from the bus stop with suitcases if you are reasonably fit.
Our room wasn't the biggest but perfectly adequate given that we were only there for two nights.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful, however the reception desk is not manned the whole time. Breakfast is served in a room with pleasing decor at street level and was very good.
The street is quiet except for the sound and sight of children playing outside at break times during the day at an adjacent school. We found that delightful, and would stay at the hotel again.
