This hotel is an absolute jewel. It is located on a quiet residential street very close to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum but the tram stop is so close you can be in the center of Amsterdam within minutes.
From the moment you walk in until the time you check out you feel like you have stayed with warm, caring and delightful friends. Hans and Loes make you feel at home and are the epitome of the welcoming hosts. The rooms are so clean you could eat off the floor. The beds are firm with crisp, clean sheets and comfortable pillows. The TV is a flat screen, there is an expresso machine to make delicious coffee and the bathroom has the best water pressure I have ever experienced. Did I mention how clean it was!
The breakfast was very filling with eggs, bacon, rolls, crossiants, yougart, cereal, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, pancakes and various other things. You won't leave hungry if you take advantage of that breakfast. Hans and Loes are a font of information and will tell you anything you need to know. The rest of the hotel staff is extremely friendly and just as welcoming. There is free international and local calls, free internet and they will do your laundry for you. However you will still have to fold...but, hey who cares!
There is a very small elevator that is barely big enough for one person and luggage but my son and I managed with our two bags. If you are feeling fit you can always go up the typical dutch staircase, winding and narrow. We went down but usually went up by the elevator.
The area around the hotel is incredibly safe and quiet. There is a school across the street and when the kids come out for recess there can be quite a bit of yelling but even though our room overlooked this area we hardly heard the kids. They have very good windows that block out sound. But you shouldn't even be in your room when the kids are playing. You should be out exploring Amsterdam!
All in all, my son and I had a delightful stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone going there. In fact a friend is leaving on Monday and will be staying there on my recommendation. When I return to Amsterdam (and yes I will be going back) the Hotel Fita is where I will be!
