The Brouwer is an interesting place. Great location looking at the Singel Canal out the window and a short walk to the Anne Frank house, Central station and Dam Square. The downside is that the drunks/potheads from the nearby “coffee shops” make noise all night long until they pass out. We stayed in the first level Rembrandt Room but would recommend anyone should stay in the highest floor rooms available to minimize the noise. It has a small lift to get your luggage up to your room and a dizzying spiral staircase for those who pass on the lift. The “queen bed” is actually two twins pushed together that separate during the night, so be sure to stay on your side. The floor of our room gave us a laugh as it was tilted so we had to block the wheels of our luggage to keep it from rolling into the TV. Two ex-patriot American women who own/help run the place and served our breakfast are savvy charming. The extra cost breakfast of coffee was very good.It was a nice place to stay but our 4 day stay got to be a bit long due to the noise. I would stay there again for a day or two but somewhere else for a longer stay.
