“A Room with a (Canal) View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We enjoyed three nights in a double canal view room at the Amsterdam House Hotel. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the location can't be beat and the beds and pillows were comfy. The rooms are no frills (with good in-room coffee), but we spent most of our time away. The complimentary breakfast on the first morning was a nice treat. To top it off, the hotel owns outstanding touring bicycles for let...the perfect way to visit the city, once you get used to scooters in the bike paths.

We spent a romantic weekend in Amsterdam last year, and were presently surprised by the culture of the city (even if some of the museums were closed).

Amsterdam House Hotel is in a nice location on the Amstel River and is pretty easy to get to from the main train station. There are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants close by, so eating out it easy, and they do a good breakfast too.

Not the Ritz, but hey you're not paying those prices!

For €166 a night without breakfast we had expected a bit more, at least comfortable beds. Without a shadow of a doubt, the beds in our twin room were the worst that I or my partner have ever slept in over three decades of travel staying in 1 and 2 star hotels.
When we checked in we were asked to pay for our 3 nights stay in full and in advance before seeing the room - the room was not ready. The room itself was like a linear, narrow railway carriage with two small singles along the side and a window with a view at the end (we had booked a canal view). On arrival having seen the room, I had asked the friendly female receptionist for a room change, was told that this may be possible. I asked again the next morning following my night on a rock hard mattress with plastic covering and was told that it was unlikely - we heard nothing about our request after this.
The best thing about this hotel in our experience was the location, the dog, the charming guy on reception and the check out time of 12.00. Based on other reviews, some rooms (and beds) seem to be better than we experienced. Don't think we'll take that chance again in this hotel.

This small hotel is in an excellent location with plenty to see and do within short walking distance. Also close to main tram routes. The rooms are tired and not squeeky clean but the front rooms are lovely and light with stunning views of the river Amstel just fifteen feet from the front door! The breakfast room doubles up as a residents lounge area available all day and there are a couple of tables outside, between the geranium troughs. Complimentary breakfast on the first morning was a good idea as you realise straight away that it is very good and there is little point in looking elsewhere.

Room Tip: Front rooms on first, second and third floors are probably the best

A group of 6 of us recently stayed at this hotel. It is in a great location, central enough to go back to during the day if you need a break from sight seeing. The rooms are small, and definitely of the budget variety and the whole place could do with a spruce up, but what it lacks in style it makes up for in substance. The staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is lovely and is served in a quaint dining room. The views from the canal facing rooms are really great and the whole place is very quiet. They also have a very friendly dog! Despite my initial misgivings, i really enjoyed the stay and would happily go there again.

Room Tip: the canal facing rooms at the front have great views

We booked this hotel 3 months in advance. When we got there we were given a room on the 2nd floor but asked to move due to the window opened onto the roof. The staff moved us to the 4th floor which was a lot better
Breakfast was included for the next morning for free. Wonderful staff and a plus they allowed my small dog.
The room is very, very small good just for sleeping. But no room to move around and for 2 people a bit tight. Comfortable beds. The room served the purpose to sleep.

Good position, lovely people, tiny rooms. Needs a serious upgrade. It's a long time since my room was furnished with a crt television.
Please, new carpets, repaint, new wiring. But it was fun.
Breakfast room great, but no bar. Overall, you would describe the hotel as quirky, however, for the money and the rating it certainly leaves a lot to be desired. Good breakfast.

The lounge and breakfast room was great but no bar.
