“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

My two sisters and myself stayed here in February for about a week. The staff was great , the breakfast delicious and the price affordable. The location can't be beaten. The hotel is a beautiful building dating from 1652. The owner told us that the hotel was renovated in 1998 but that they tried to keep it looking as original as possible. There was free wifi and even a small elevator, more intended for the luggage since the house has a very winding staircase. Would go back here anytime although sometimes it is hard to get a reservation I was told.

Recommended.

We spent three nights in the Mondrian room last weekend in mid-February. We were on the top floor with wonderful views of the Singel canal. The room is very large and very clean. As always, all staff/personnel were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine with breads, extra belegen sharp cheese, boiled egg, and coffee/tea. As I’ve said before, this is the only place we’ll stay in Amsterdam. We’ll be back next year!

If you want all the usual complimentary: body lotions, shower caps or tray of drink making accessories then this hotel is not for you. But if you want to be in a lovely old Dutch house, with exposed wooden floorboards and querky old furniture, and yes the elevator is tiny but fits 2 people (who know each other well), Wifi connection, even on the 3rd (top) floor - then you will be delighted with this little hotel.
Hotel Brouwer is just a 10 minute walk from the station, in an area surrounded by canals, cobbled streets, and OK yes, Ladies from the "Oldest profession in the World" can be seen in their colourful windows not too far away, but this is Amsterdam! It does not detract at all from the charm of this location.
Other reviewers mentioned not being able to pay with plastic, but we knew ahead of time that cash was preferred, so no problem at all.
We would certainly stay at this hotel again and maybe might not have all breakfasts with them as they get a little monotonous as we stayed 5 nights; there are plenty of good eateries in the area as an alternative.

Room Tip: The top rooms are quieter, as the night-life can be noisy.

If you are looking for something small, authentically Dutch, with genuine people, old and wooden, comfortable large rooms and bathrooms, this is it! We stayed 21-25 January in two double rooms on the fourth floor (loft), with incredible views overlooking two canals. Breakfast was on the ground floor an old room with little tables overlooking the Singel canal. Fascinating, extremely good value. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Top floor with lift (in the roof), view of canals incredible, day and night. Total silence.

It's a wonderful canal house turned into a hotel.
Very cosy, big rooms, delicious breakfast and pleasant staff.
Very well located, near main spots in Amsterdam.
Definitely recommended.
Our room was in the 3rd floor, very quiet and the best view ever.

Had the Rembrandt Room on the 1st floor this November at 92 euro. Delightfully unmodernized. Simple, clean and spacious. Convenient location on the Singel and nice view onto the canal. Breakfast ok - a nice pot of French-press coffee. Friendly atmosphere. Felt close to the culture here.
