We had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Keizershof in Amsterdam in June for 3 nights. I had looked up the hotel on trip advisor before and decided that this would be a good option for me and my wife. Despite some of the rooms sharing facilities, for example we stayed in the Charlie Chaplin room and had our own private shower but shared a toilet with some other guests, this was never a problem as it was not shared between a lot of people and thus we never had to wait to use the bathroom. It was also maintained perfectly clean and again this is why we did not have any problems sharing the toilet. The room we stayed in was very spacious and clean and included tea / coffee, very tasty stroop wafels and satelite television featuring dutch and some english programmes.
The Hotel is ideally located, it is close enough to the historic centre and an easy 10 walk to a lot of museums and attractions yet it is far away enough from the party areas to provide a peaceful night sleep, we slept with the windows open and were not disturbed at all during the night by loud parties etc.
The hosts were very kind and provided a fantastic breakfast. This hotel is great value for money.
The beds were also very comfortable and spacious.
Be advised though that the rooms are located on the 3rd floor with some steep steps to get to the top but honestly I think this is a common feature of most Amsterdam establishments so do not let this put you off.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering visiting Amsterdam.
