We stayed here for one night on a quick visit to Amsterdam in June 2013. The hotel is conveniently located close to the Anne Frank House on a quiet side canal - very pretty location. The rooms and breakfast were fine, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel van Onna as it was located on a beautiful canal. You literally walk down the street and there is the famous Westermarkt Church and Anne Frank House. The tram stop is right in front of the Westermarkt Church as well. The bells ring every 15 minutes from the church, but surprisingly it didn't bother us throughout the night. There are several other site-seeing activities on the street including the Houseboat Museum and Tulip Museum. It was cheapest price I found for $118 per per night. It offers the bare essentials, but it was everything we needed. I enjoyed it since it is a "true" experience of what most hotels are like in Europe. Beware that is doesn't have a shower curtain as most European showers don't so your bathroom is literally a "wash room" and the entire floor gets wet, but they provide you with a squeegee. We loved it and thought it was all about the experience. There wasn't a canal view room available, but I emailed the hotel and requested it. There wasn't one available for our first night, but for the remaining three so we switched to a canal view room which was gorgeous. They allowed us to switch rooms early in the morning instead of having to wait until the check-in time again. They had a bath soap dispenser in the shower room and provided clean towels every day. They also have a laptop with free wi-fi for guests to use in their reception area. They provided a traditional Dutch breakfast (included in the price) which included four pieces of bread, one piece of toasted bread, two pieces of meat, jam, butter, sugar, chocolate sprinkles, a boiled egg, and coffee or tea. The hotel receptionists were very helpful and informative of all our questions.

We loved the location in Jordaan! The hotel Was fine, it has one Star, it is clean and the staff is freindly. The breakfast was poor, overboiled eggs, poor bread and jam. We only ate breakfast the first Day, after that we chose, sone of the superb breakfast restaurants int the area.

Hotel van Onna was an excellent place to stay in Amsterdam. Very clean, inexpensive, and in a great location with free breakfast and WiFi... what more could you possibly want?
The only drawback I found was that the church bells go off every 15 minutes through the night but that will be the case everywhere and you do get used to that. The rooms are plain with no TV but if you are planning on watching TV in Amsterdam you should probably just stay home, If you want a great base from which to explore one of the world's greatest cities then look no further than Hotel van Onna.
