“Great Amsterdam Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We stayed here for a week in April. Clean room in a historic building overlooking Keizersgracht canal. It really makes you feel like you are in Amsterdam. Within easy walking distance to Museumplein, Leidseplein, and Rembrandtplein. Very safe area. Close to the tram and tons of restaurants. The breakfasts were excellent. Our room had a sink and shower. The toilet was just steps away. The steep stairway just added to the charm.

Room Tip: We had the Chaplin room. Very spacious and overlooks the canal.

Such a comfortable, friendly, convenient place to stay!
Just a few minute walk from EVERYWHERE!
Nicest people in the world operate this lovely, quiet, canalside hotel overlooking a lovely garden.
Such a comfortable room and such a good breakfast!

This is a family-run business where you will always get a warm Dutch welcome by the whole familiy DeVries. Mary prepares delicious breakfasts- the best omelets and Dutch pancakes in Amsterdam! It is located along a tree-lined canal, close to the tram lines and central shopping areas. Your room will be clean, well-maintained and have wonderful views of the canal or the beautiful little garden. They always have good suggestions for good restaurants, and things to do and see, and good directions for getting there. You will feel like part of the family! I've been there twice and look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great! The north rooms are perfect for observing the life along the canals, the so...

Our stay for three nights at this hotel was exceptional! We stayed in the back corner room overlooking the garden with our shower/toilet in the hallway and our own private sink in the room. The room was clean and had a wide selection of teas provided. The location of the hotel is also great! Not more than a ten or fifteen minute walk from any major sight/attraction!

The best part of this hotel was the breakfast! Freshly cooked omelettes, fresh baked bread and fresh fruit and yogurt. Everything was scrumptious!

Highly recommend.

Our stay at Hotel Keizershof was just delightful. We spent two nights at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The family de Vries made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. All were welcoming with good suggestions for sightseeing and dining.
Location: It is located on the canal Keizershof, easily accessible via tram (we took 24, fourth stop) from the central station. It is also central to most key sights (but Amsterdam is small enough that you can really walk everywhere anyway).
Room: We stayed in the room at the back of the house up the back staircase overlooking the inner garden. The room was quiet, comfortable and spacious. The bathroom in the room is rather small, but totally comfortable with a shower and sink and then a separate toilet just outside the room (but still private to the room). As with all the hotels we stayed at, the bed was two twins pushed together with separate duvets, but that was fine with me (my husband couldn't steal the covers!
Breakfast: The breakfast was delicious, but Anna's omlettes are the best part. She cooks them to perfection with cheese and chives. The yogurt, fruit, breads, cheeses and cereal were also tasty, but don't miss the omlette. The coffee was also very good, not too strong.
The price of this hotel is also very reasonable compared to the alternatives considering the location, the service and the included breakfast. I highly recommend staying at the Hotel Keizershof on your trip to Amsterdam!

I spent 4 nights at the Keizerhof Hotel.

It is not really a hotel but more a bed and breakfast (just to clarify!)

Good breakfast, very nice room and the only reason I am giving this place 4 stars is that the toilet was outside my room and both the bathroom (inside my room) and the toilet were rather small. As other guest wrote in their reviews, there are some steep steps to walk: keep that in mind if this is a problem for you.

The location is great: just 4 stops from the central train station (which means that in about half an hour you can be at the airport).

It is also located about 10 minutes walk to an area with many restaurants and that is extremely convenient.

The owners are great people. I had lots of fun with them and they are of course, very helpful.

The breakfast consisted of a selection of cheese, yoghurt with different cereals, pastry, bread, marmalade, fruit (and egg/ omelette if you wish...).

All in all: I would come back any time to this nice place!

Good luck!
:-)

This canal house hotel provided us with a spotlessly clean, spacious room. There is no elevator and the stairs are an Amsterdam special. After a week we were going up and down them like mountain goats! if I stayed a month I could drop the gym membership. Every morning we were treated to a Dutch breakfast, yogurt, cereals, juice, bread/toast, cheeses, omelets, tea, coffee and pastries. The family De Vries are WONDERFUL! Very well informed about the area and willing to help with itineraries. They were so sweet to my daughter that she wanted to stay with them! Mary suggested several sights which were not in my many guidebooks. Awesome! Another thing going for this hotel is location. A half block from the tram, about three blocks from the flower market. It doesn't get any better than this. I only have one reservation in writing this review, and that is that every one will want to stay here! When we left on Sunday, Mary arranged for a taxi to Centraal as the trams did not run that early. It is now our "home in Amsterdam". We cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Charlie Chaplin is the triple room.
