“Had higher expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Chose Wiechmann through website as it looked charming and not too pricey. The buildings were indeed charming and the location was excellent. Taking the ample breakfast overlooking the canal was a delight. On the downside, we struggled with the stairs somewhat (incredibly steep and narrow) but I guess that's a feature of these houses and not much to be done about it. We were on the top floor so it was a long haul with our bags. It also meant our room was incredibly hot - we had the windows open the whole time and the fan going a lot of the time. It would have been nice to have a view of the canal, but at least being on the top floor we could look over the roof (and into the neighbours' kitchens!) instead of at another wall. Also disappointed to find that our room, booked as a double, was actually twin-bedded. Mattresses very soft.

The bathroom was clean, shower worked perfectly, as did the tv.
The lounge was comfortable and my partner loved the resident dog!
I would stay again if we could have an actual double room, with a canal view.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view. The stairs really are steep and narrow - avoid if that's going to...

If you select this Hotel, you cannot expect something like at any Chain Hotel. It is something special, giving the feeling of how life was and is in this typical old style Amstererdam houses. There are a unique old style living room and breakfast room with old classic furniture. The stairs to the rooms in the upper floors are quite steep and there is no lift available. But knowing this fact it transmits the feeling how it is to live in these kind of old houses. So if you expect some modern style Hotel with all its amenities it is the wrong choice. So when selecting this Hotel, you will discover some shortcomings to what the modern Businesstraveller expects, but you get the cosy feeling of Old Amsterdam with a special charme.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front side offer a beautiful look to the Canal in front of the house but be aware that...

Perfect location and cosy.
The hotel is a bit dated. Very steep stairs and no elevator, so beware if you a located on top floor (4th). Breakfast included, siimple but enough. Actually no surprises compared to the description, but my double room at the attic was not 20 sqm, rather 12 sqm.

The hotel has helpful, friendly staff and a reasonably good breakfast. It is well located, but the room was not worth the rate. You couldn't look out of the windows as the view was blocked by buildings. There was no balcony and the room was so hot since the lone fan was unable to cool it. The room was barely big enough to fit four of us. The television in the room was outdated and the picture was grainy. So the only option was to spend most of the time outside the room.

One of the best parts of my recent one month European vacation was my stay at Amsterdam Wiechmann Hotel. The hotel is family owned and extremely well taken care of. It's well located, just a few minutes from the Anne Frank house, a must see, and facing one of the many canals on what has been assessed as one of the prettiest corners in Amsterdam. The front desk staff is very accommodating; a big thank you to Natta for answering a near endless barrage of questions without becoming exasperated and to the owner, John, for sorting out my somewhat muddled airport shuttle booking. The breakfast served at the hotel deserves high praise as well, as I was spoiled for choice with everything from delectable ham through to fresh fruit and likely the best cup of coffee I had during my entire vacation, served on request in the hotel lounge. The owner has preserved the original beauty of the hotel and this as well adds to the overall experience. There are antiques throughout the main floor and the main halls and staircases are well preserved, but guestrooms each have modernized facilities. I'll recommend Hotel Wiechmann to friends and family, and hope to return myself in the not too distant future.

This historic hotel sits right on a canal. We booked an upgraded room It had antique furniture, comfy bed, brand new restroom, and a small balcony overlooking the canal! Quiet and clean hotel with two lobby areas full of nice antiques. A sunny breakfast room to enjoy the free continental but filling breakfast. This sunny room sits right on the corner so you can watch the city come to life while sipping coffee and eating the meat, cheese, bread and other offerings. Enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, espresso, lattes throughout the day. The staff is very friendly and helpful with directions etc. to the sites in town. Walking distance to everything.
We loved staying here and think you will too!

Room Tip: we paid a little extra for an upgraded room. Stairs were just fine, don't let other reviews abo...
