Just what we wanted. Many restaurants and lots of shopping nearby. Super clean and great breakfast. Large room with new spotless bathroom. We had room on lower floor with great view of canal. Friendly pleasant hotel.

My sister and I stayed for 4 nights while we enjoyed a break in Amsterdam. The hotel is in a really good location, just a few minutes walk from the Rembrandtsplein and several trams within a couple of minutes walk. The staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms spotless, quiet and had everything you would need. The decor is functional funky. Beds really comfortable. It is a good 3 star - perfect for a leisure break or for business if you don't want an all frills hotel. Lovely and extensive continental style breakfast . I would definitely recommend this hotel and would return.

Room Tip: A room at the back quieter probably but the best view is from the front.

I was attending a large conference at RAI Amsterdam and stayed for 6 nights at the Bridge Hotel. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to metro station, high rating and competitive room rate compared to other hotels of similar class. It seemed expensive at 125 euro per night for a single room (incl breakfast) which was so spartan that there was no wardrobe, bedside table or luggage rack. Small CRT TV. But I found out that hotels near RAI were even more expensive (easily double). My room was at the back at the lowest level, and was adequate size for one person. The stairs were easy to negotiate - not narrow and steep as I anticipated. My room had a very lovely view of a small canal which was unfortunately partly obscured by a fire escape stairway outside, but I loved the sound of water and the sight of swans and ducks swimming past. Room had strong wifi signal. The windows could not be opened but there was an air vent for fresh air. Wonder if this room may get too hot in summer. At this time of the year, the room was a bit chilly at night but the blanket and pillows were nice and fluffy. There was blackout curtain and I slept very well. I read the reports of other reviewers and can confirm that there was no soap, only shower gel and shampoo. And only bath towel but not face towel. The shower enclosure seemed to have a panel missing so bathroom got wet after showering, even though the shower was very weak. Shower water temperature was good though. Breakfast is in a nice cozy room on the same level. Plenty of tables. I was very satisfied with breakfast buffet which consists of a variety of bread/toast, boiled eggs, cold cuts, juices, hot beverages, cereal, yogurt and fruit cocktail. The bridge Hotel is located in a quiet and safe area within walking distance of central. Taking the metro to RAI was quick and not crowded. I had enjoyed my stay at this hotel very much and will stay there again because of the wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. They were ALL very professional, efficient, courteous, sincere and warm. They made this budget hotel classy.

Room Tip: Room 12 is quiet and has view of small canal (not Amstel). downside is there is a fire escape stairw...

A comfortable Hotel. It is situated in a residential location of the city so it was quiet and not touristy but still central enough for us to walk everywhere, Staff very helpful and friendly. Good selection at breakfast. If you don't fancy walking the hotel does hire out bicycles if you feel adventurous and 'brave' enough as the locals don't take any prisioner's. We visited Amsterdam for the Rijks Museum which was amazing. 15 euro entrance is pricey but quality artwork and setting. Also had a day out to Haarlem, only a short 20 minute train trip, where we went to the Fran Hals Museum.

Room Tip: Don't forget to look left before stepping off the pavement - bike riders don't know the mean...

We spent two nights here. Arriving at 6pm, our room was practically in the lobby and the window for which we paid extra, looked onto an ugly inside passage. I noted it was an unattractive room and we were moved the next day to a nice room with a small balcony and view of the canal. I felt we paid for this and didn't receive it the first night.

Overall nice play to stay. Fairly convenient bus and tram connections to museum and train station.

Front desk folks very agreeable. Avoid lines and buy museum tickets at the front desk. Nice breakfast saved time in morning but not special.

It felt like running a gauntlet to enter hotel with always several smokers puffing away on the steps. I wish management would instruct guests and workers to walk across the street.

A great little hotel on the Amstel next to the Carre theatre.
within easy walking distance of everything, restaurants within 10 mins max.
Catch the metro any of the three lines from the Central Station to Weesperplein take exit Amstel walk straight on to the Amstel river. Before the big bridge you turn right. You walk 200 meters and the hotel is at your right hand side.
The staff were brilliant & let us leave our bags for 6hrs on the last day.
Breakfasts were buffet with cereals,meats, cheeses, eggs & bread alll excellent
I would definately choose to stay here again if I return.

The bridge hotel is very clean. I dropped a bit of water on the floor near the bed. I got some tissue paper to wipe it and my paper came out wet and clean. I couldn't believe it was not dirty. The location of this hotel is fantastic. Right in front of the Amstel canal and 15 minutes from everything. Couldn't ask for a better location.
