“Canal view from the gable is very special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We booked a room with a canal view and lucked out getting the top floor (fine if you are comfortable with three flights of typically steep canal house stairs, though they are equipped with an electronic chair). This was room 7, in the gable, which makes for a tall ceiling with an extra window, bringing in lots of light. Conversely, the gable makes for a low shower, so if you are reasonable tall you'll crouch. The room has heaps of space and a huge bed. It has two arm chairs, from which gazing out at the canal through the leaves of the trees along Leliegracht is pleasingly zen. There's no street noise and you can't hear the neighbours from the room, but the bells and music of Westerkerk are pretty loud. They go off every half hour, and at certain times they sound briefly on the quarter hour. There's a different musical prelude to the bells each time they go off, the one at 4 a.m. being especially elaborate (sort of harpsicord, I guess). Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper (I can imagine that if you are a local you would grow to love the regularity of the bells). There are cool shops on the canal, and lots of the best of Amsterdam nearby (brown cafes, Dutch restaurants) without the less appealing bits. Top marks to the young chap at the desk and at breakfast who looked after us most days. He kindly booked us tickets for museums and Keuekenhof online.

With the exception of not having a lift (elevator), this property rates 4 stars.
We had a lovely room on the first floor (Room 1), which was quite large by Amsterdam standards, and had all the makings of a 4 star hotel room - bathtub, safe, fridge, gorgeous canal view.
If you don't mind at least 20 very steep steps, this is a great room at a great price.
However, if you have ANY problems with stairs, beware, this is not the hotel for you.

We spent 2 nights here and would definitely return. The location could not be better - lovely area and only 5 minutes' walk from the Anne Frank House so we were in there by 9am (TIP: book tickets in advance!). We stayed in the family room, very quiet at the top of the hotel, beds very comfortable. Very helpful and friendly owners, good breakfast. Yes the stairs are steep but that's part of the charm. Great value!

Room Tip: The family room is at the top at the back of the building, and very quiet.

We stayed in the 't Hotel for 4 nights, and we had a great experience. We had a canal view room on the third floor (those stairs are a killer!) and it was very clean and spacious. The location couldn't be better - away from the madness but close enough to everything so you dont feel removed from the city. There are some great bars/pubs within walking distance, and there is a fantastic pizza place just down the way. Lovely area and friendly staff!

You cannot expect the best hotel if u pay less. Compared to other hotels in Amsterdam, that are a lot more expensive, T Hotel is very good for its price.

The rooms are big enough, the service is good, and you have your own entrance so it gives you a lot of privacy.

The rooms are also very clean. The hotel is well located, 3 min from Anna Frank's house, and walking distance to any place. You can also park the bikes outside the hotel.

The only bad thing is there is no elevator, so if you have the room in the last floor you will to end tired.

Very nice hotel in an old canal house, extremely nice and helpful staff, excellent breakfast. The location is great for seeing Amsterdam and walking to all the tourist attractions. I would stay there again if I have an opportunity or excuse to visit Amsterdam again.

Ok, there isn’t an official ballot, but if there ever is, our money would be on t’Hotel. While you are walking along the cobblestone sidewalks from the train station to your hotel gazing over the impossibly cute canals, you look at all the canal houses from the Dutch Golden Age. You wonder what they look like inside and what it will be like to stay in one. Luckily, your answers are just minutes away.

t'hotel amsterdam interiort’Hotel is located along the quiet Leilegracht canal in the center of Amsterdam. The location can’t be beat-it’s close to everything, yet located on a peaceful canal. You’re just a few minutes’ walk from much of what makes this city famous — like the Anne Frank House and the Heineken Brewery, as well as the infamous Red Light District. This boutique hotel is in a canal house dating from the 1600s. The houses aren’t that big and neither is the hotel-it has only 8 rooms so book ahead. Way ahead. Rooms with a canal view cost a little more, so if that is something you have worked into your budget, go ahead and splurge. Otherwise, the rooms that do not face the canal are just as nice and their windows open to a courtyard.

When you check in, you will be shown to some pretty steep (though typical by Dutch standards) stairs that lead up to your room. If you get there before your room is ready, go ahead and leave your luggage with the friendly staff. They will hold it for you while you go grab some lunch-after all, you are probably starving after the long flight. The rooms are quite spacious by European standards, clean and comfortable. All rooms got a renovation in 2011, so they are in tip-top condition, and all have a toilet, shower, tub and sink en suite. There is a TV with some English language programming, but honestly, you are on vacation so you will either be out seeing the city and its surroundings or sleeping.
