“Our stay at Hotel Wiechmann”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

My wife and I together with another couple with whom we have been friends for 50 years stayed at Hotel Wiechmann on the nights of 18th, 19th and 20th November 2013. Although we had seen many good reviews on Tripadvsor we had also seen a few terrible reviews and were thus slightly worried. Our fears were totally unfounded. The hotel has "character" which we really liked. The staff were friendly and the clientele were reserved and pleasant people. The room in which we stayed was moderate to small with an old fashioned wardrobe but it was warm and comfortable with arm chairs, a flat screen TV and a canal view. We both have minor back trouble which can be exacerbated by some beds but we found these beds comfortable and woke with no problems. The room also had a safe. We were issued with a key to the front door, a key to the room and a key to the safe and got back our 20 Euro deposit when we left. Stairs to our room were steep but typical of Amsterdam. Breakfast was fine - not bacon and eggs but cereals, cheese, fruit, tea, toast etc. One evening we spent an hour playing bridge in the lounge which is comfortable and interesting. The hotel is within walking distance of everything - just over a mile to Central Station and just over a mile to the Concertgebouw with Dam Square, restaurants and the red light district all closer. We bought a 4 day tram ticket but could easily have managed without. If and when we go back to Amsterdam we will probably stay at Hotel Wiechmann.

Had three nights this week in Hotel Wiechmann.
Room comfortable and everything worked.Furniture from a byegone age but this enables one to describe it as'full of character!'
Staff were friendly and very helpful.
Breakfast buffet was very good and taken in an excellent room with canal views.
Would certainly recommend to friends looking for a good value hotel in central Amsterdam

This was just a one night business trip alone, but I'd be happy to stay here for a long weekend break as a couple. Stayed in room 308 - room and WC/shower both a decent size with plenty of clothes space. Free WiFi worked well on third floor. No bed bugs and room was very clean.
Breakfast is usual Amsterdam fare - cereals, cheese and cold meats, boiled eggs, bread/toast with jams/marmalade, all plentiful.
Good location - short walk to buses and trams and places to eat nearby.
Pleasant helpful people on reception and superquick checkout.
I booked through an online agency 3 weeks in advance and got a fair price.

Room Tip: Room 308 is a courtyard room, not canal view

I recently stayed at the hotel and unfortunately did not have a great experience like other reviewers. The hotel is packed with character and is in a great location, however, I came home covered in bed bug bites. Both myself and my traveling companion had bites and stayed only at this hotel on our trip. I contacted the hotel upon my return and they said they would investigate the problem immediately. Once they investigated however, they said there was no trace of bugs in the room we stayed. To me, this is an impossibility and a red flag so if you choose to stay here I would exercise great caution!

Wiechmann, Owner at Hotel Wiechmann, responded to this review, November 15, 2013
Again, even after refunding 50% of your stay and not having any complaints before, during or after your stay at the Wiechmann and having our Exterminator company check and do an extra heat-treatment of the room you stayed in, I still offer my apologies for your experience.
And, as I wrote in my emails, I am also grateful for the heads-up on this possible problem you gave me when you contacted us a few days after your departure. That probably gave us a chance to be on time taking measures.
Thank you.

Friendly informal hotel on Prinsengracht a bit off the beaten tram track.
Quiet and simple rooms were fine.
But if you don't want or cannot climb up the four flights of very steep stairs ask for a room lower down.

On summer holiday we stayed with two children on the first floor. The room was spacious, with two separate bedrooms and a big, modern bathroom. The charming location is hard to beat. You can't do better than a wiev over one of the busiest canals in Amsterdam and walking distance to the inner city.
Breakfast was ok, and the service good. All in all we can recommend this for a family whith children.

We stayed here in a canal-view room in August 2013 and had a great time. The location is excellent, both in terms of getting around Amsterdam and the view of the canal was a constant source of fascination, 24 hours a day - better than TV!.

The rooms are comfortable and a good size and, unlike many European hotels, so is the bathroom.

Staff were friendly and very helpful and when I left my mobile phone behind they mail it to me.

Room Tip: Go for the canal view rooms.
