The Brouwer is a charming canal house with a perfect location on the Single Canal with good bars, restaurants and shops nearby. Lovely breakfast room, each morning they serve assorted breads, cheese, boiled eggs, juice, coffee, tea. Free wifi and there is also a pc for free use between 0800 and 2200. The single room was quite small, sloping floor, but clean with flat screen TV and beautiful view over the canal. Easy walk to Dam Square, Anne Frank House, central station, and it was especially nice to be next to the Joordan district which is full of wonderful little shops and cafes. Took the Connexxion shuttle to the hotel for euro 14.50. They do not list this hotel on their website but will drop you at the hotel anyway, or nearby, depending on how many are in the shuttle. For euro 28.00 the hotel has a taxi that will take you back to the airport. Unfortunately I had scheduled this and missed this, as I walked out the door at 0545 and the taxi waiting there was not the 28 euro taxi, it was the 40 euro taxi I discovered on arrival to airport! So if they schedule taxi for you make sure it is the one they have called. Right out the side door of the hotel is Graven Molen tapas and Spanish kitchen, Lijnbaansteeg 5-7, wonderful!! Also across the Singel and down the street is Het Kalfje, Prinsenstraat 5, wonderful place to wind down with beer and great fondue. Having an elevator is a definite plus in Amsterdam as well!!
