“Wonderful home base for a vacation in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

The Bridge Hotel was a wonderful location for our week stay in Amsterdam. It's so nice to have a comfortable and friendly place to come "home" to while on vacation. We were there with a large group and had a more typical hotel room (with a nice little balcony as a bonus) and an apartment with a kitchen. Both were furnished with new furniture, comfortable beds, and clean, up to date bathrooms. I did notice that there were some dust bunnies on the floor in the corners of the hotel room, but that is my only complaint (and I think it's pretty minor). The staff was very helpful and friendly, they called cabs, chatted with us, and recommended restaurants. They also rent bikes from the hotel which was fun and made it really easy to rent and get around town. The breakfast was wonderful, plenty of options (yogurt, toast, fruit, meat, cheese, juice, coffee, tea, etc.). And most of all the location was excellent, the apartment had a view of the Amstel so we could watch the boats going by and it was an easy walk to much of the city. We walked most places including Albert Cuyp Market, Rembrandt Square, restaurants, grocery stores, the Heineken Experience, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum. Bikes help you get around faster, and we rented those a few days, but mostly walked. Highly recommended!

We stayed for three nights in early August durng an excitng weekend when the City was having quite the party. Stayed on the third floor with a view of the side canal even. The rooms were very clean, excellent bathrooms and shower. Good selection at breakfast, especially by European standards. A little off the beaten path, but that's what we were looking for, close enough to major sites, but quiet enough to feel as if you're stayng in a neighborhood. The brown cafe up the street was nice for a drink at the end of the day, and lots of restaurants close by as well. Also, great for the price.

We stayed in The Bridge Hotel for two nights. It was ok. But for 170€ per night and judging from the photos I had seen, I had expected something more "boutiquy", made from better materials, instead of youth hostel appeal and cheap plastic floor. Also, the room was cold and the shower did not work properly (low water pressure, warm water only after several minutes). Bad illumination in the bathroom. The breakfast staff was not up to the task of clearing tables and putting out new clean plates.

stayed here with three others for a girls' weekend, struggled to find a quad room, but this was fantastic! Spacious airy room with several windows, quirky contemporary decor, and clean roomy shower room with separate toilet. There was even a small balcony to sit outside amongst the rooftops. Modern sofas in centre of room with TV for relaxing. Beds v comfy, quiet location, but only 5mins walk from tram and metro. Breakfast was nothing special but quite adequate, reception staff v helpful and happy to provide fresh milk to take to room.
All in all a great find, would definately stay here again. Only downside is the steep and multiple flights of stairs ( no lift) but I think this is pretty universal in Amsterdam.

I spent five nights at the Bridge Hotel. My room was fine although the walls were a bit thin the people staying were relatively quiet. Breakfast was your usual continental but very adequate and the free wireless a bonus. What I loved was the location beside the Carre Theatre and beside the Amstel River and just a short walk to the centre of around 10 minutes. The metro is only a five minute walk and just three stops from Central Station. Really enjoyed my stay.

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was pretty good for your average continental. The hotel had great quirky little touches, such as a collection of antiques under the stairs and art deco travel pictures down the halls. Unfortunately our room was rather disappointing. Having seen that there were better ones from other travellers pictures and the website I think we were given one of the worst rooms. Old linoleum floors and two single beds at either side with chipboard walls - it had the feeling of an old hospital room. The bathroom was very clean but tiny. Sadly it wasn't all I'd hoped. I'd only recommend the hotel if you were guaranteed one of the newer rooms or the apartments.

I stayed four nights at the Bridge Hotel and I can recommend it. The hotel might not be extremely fancy or even modern in terms of surfaces and interior design, it is nevertheless clean, friendly and definitely worth its rates.

My room had a somewhat spartan look but was comfortable and cosy with a view of a small canal. Internet worked fine with a highspeed connection. The bathroom was clean and with a good shower. The best thing was the bed which was very comfortable and I slept very, very good, which is a rare thing in major-city hotels most of the times.

Breakfast included many good things and the staff did a good job of keeping up even if there were many breakfast guests at the time. The staff was in general able and friendly without being intrusive. The location was fine for my purposes and I walked to the station in 30 or so minutes. The only thing I noticed on the downside was a very faint odour of the stale canal water when windows were open but what could you do? Didn't turn on the TV so I can't assess that service.
