“Great little hotel with good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We stayed here for one night last year on our way to Germany for a stag weekend. They were great hosts and we found the whole experience brill ( we were all well behaved lads somi guess thatbhelped)The staff were great and the hotel very clean . The breakfast was good and the location is perfect. I plan to go back this January with my wife for one night on our way to meet friends in southern Holland.
I think this hotel is perfect and can't wait to go back there in a couple of weeks.

I have just come back from a weekend in Amsterdam, I have stayed at the Nicolaas Witsen Hotel with my parents. We had a double and a single rooms on the first floor, the rooms were both spacious and clean with huge windows overlooking the quiet street in front of the building. The rooms were equipped with flat screen tv, phone and a table. The continental breakfast was included in the price and consisted in toasts, baguettes, jams, cereals, fresh fruit and vegetables but unfortunately no yogurt. The hotel is situated in a quiet area near a canal and within walking to the tourist attractions of beautiful Amsterdam; the staff is helpful. To recommend.

Stayed November 2012, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Stayed in the hotel for two nights with 5 people. Used the hotel as basis for discovering Amsterdam. It is at walking distance from Hermitage, Rijskmusea, Anne Frank house (2,5km), boat trips. You can purchase your tickets for most musea at the reception desk, which allows you to jump the queues. Staff very friendly. Only minor point is that when the hotel is fully booked and you like croissants, better go for breakfast before 9:30. We've chosen the hotel for the location, for the bed&breakfast and we have been very pleased with our stay.

Dear belgium9745,

Thank you very much for your friendly words. About the location, I agree: It is one of the best locations to explore Amsterdam, because we are in the middle of most attractions / sightseeings.

about the fresh baked croissants which were finished after 9:30 am: It is a new product and it took some time to find out how many were needed every morning. I can promise you that next time the croissants were also available at 10:30 am.

I hope we can welcome you again, during your next visit to Amsterdam.


Best Regards,

Alex Roozendaal
