“Comfortable Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2005

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Fita. We were in a standard room that, whilst small, certainly met all of our needs. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable, pillows good and we had a clean, large bathroom. Lots of nice little touches, for example we had a chocolate on our pillow on arrival, there is a little inflatable duck in the bathroom, and when we left we were given a fridge magnet of the hotel.
My daughter loved the breakfast - freshly squeezed orange juice included. It isn't a huge selection, but what there is is top quality and very fresh.
The hotel is in a very good location, close to the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum - this is especially important when you have a child with you as there are some places that you would rather not be near at night! We had no problem finding some good restaurants, including a combined Argentinian steak house/Italian restaurant just around the corner. The next street along seemed to be Amsterdams answer to Bond Street - Lacoste, Chanel etc which was nice to browse. We used the trams (get a strippenkaart at the station or the Albert Heijn supermarket round the corner from the hotel). Trams 2 and 5 stop outside the Van Gogh museum which is steps away from the hotel. Don't walk from the station - it's quite a long way with luggage. We would definitely recommend this hotel. Don't go if you want big hotel style and luxury, but if you want good value, clean accommodation and some nice extras (we got half price Van Gogh museum tickets) - then head straight there.

Hotel Fita is in the Museum district, A very nice area. We wallked 1 block to catch the tram that took us wherever we wanted to go. At the end of a long day siteseeing it was nice to be dropped off so close to the hotel.

We were in room 32. It was very nice and we enjoyed the quaint balcony that not all rooms had. The English breakfast buffet was delicious and was very enjoyable. There was plenty of options to have something different every morning. The hosts are the owners and they took very good care of us answering our questions each morning at breakfast. They live in the hotel which was nice for availability. We look forward to our next stay at the Hotel Fita.

We stayed at the hotel fita last fall and thought we were lucky to have found such great accomodation. The location is within walking distance to the most interesting parts on masterdam, and literally 2 minutes away from the rijksmuseum and van gogh museum. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the breakfast buffet was outstanding. The staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

We had agreat experience at Hotel Fita. It was super clean and very quiet. The breakfast every morning was excellent and generally sustained us all the way until dinner ! The most entertaining part of our day was talking with the owner Hans every morning. He always had a great story and was very helpful in recommending sights to see as well as how to get there. In addition, the location of the hotel was great - close to everything. It is a family owned hotel and Hans and Loes offered wonderful hospitality. We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Amsterdam.

Hotel Fita in Amsterdam is truly a gem! The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The rooms are neat, cozy, and most have a lovely view of the bustling streets. The staff were friendly, helpful and considerate. Hotel Fita is the ideal choice when visiting Amsterdam.

We stayed at Hotel Fita 3 nights and ejoyed it very much.
The hotel is 200 m from Reijk and Van Gogh museums The trams
are at the same distance ( but who needs them..The best and
easiest way to see Amsterdam is on foot).
The room was big and very clean and the breakfest fresh and more then
enough.

The owners Mrs. and Mr De Rapper are very friendly and made all they could to make our short visit succesfull
..and for sure we shall return.

I stayed four nights with a friend last year. we stayed in a 'Business' room which was spacious and comfortable and very good value.
The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful, the hotel is comfortable, quiet and clean and the breakfast is excellent.
The hotel is well positioned for the excellent museums, the wonderful concert hall (book well in advance) and some very good restaurants and is situated in a quiet and appealing street. Nevertheless if you want more action, it is only a short stroll away.
Overall our stay was very enjoyable and I have no hesitation in recommending the Fita - I have of course booked another stay there for later this year!
