“Hotel Seven One Seven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

717 is a very friendly hotel in the centre of Amsterdam - the rooms are well appointed & spacious and ideal if you want to work or relax. Its like staying in your own home, the team are very friendly and the breakfast is cooked as if you were in your own kitchen - will definitely be my hotel of choice in Amsterdam. Hotel was recommended by a colleague and is a well kept secret.

We spent a weekend at this hotel in mid-November and the two nights we stayed have been very memorable. The location is excellent: mid-way round the Prinsengracht and an easy walk to most central Amsterdam sights. The only time we needed to use transport was to get to and from the airport. When we arrived, our friendly host showed us into a comfortable sitting room with a log-fire burning and brought us coffee and cakes as he spirited our bags away. When we were ready, he took us to our room and was genuinely helpful in explaining the facilities. Like most period houses in Amsterdam, the building is tall and narrow with very steep staircases but this lends it lots of character. The interior throughout is beautiful and the room, large but still cosy, lacked nothing by way of amenities. There was an option of taking breakfast in our room but we chose to go down into the dining room (they happily served us even though we got up late) and we enjoyed a good breakfast of cold meat, cheese, eggs and bacon. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, from local sightseeing tips to booking restaurants and airport transfers. The hotel is small but benefits from an very friendly, cosy atmosphere with particularly attentive staff. I couldn't fault it.

Hotel Seven one Seven is a little gem---you feel like you are at your own home---albeit a gorgeous house with staff on the Princes Canal in Amsterdam. The staff works really hard to answer your every need. I entertained guests and we had wine and appetizers. At the last minute I invited guests to breakfast (which is a small affair), again no problem. And there were delicious cookies that came with the coffee. The hotel is basically all inclusive (except for laundry). The hotel is in a fantastic location near the 9 streets....and easy to get to both the museums and to the center of Amsterdam. I would highly recommend this hotel for a romantic weekend or if you are on business and want a more intimate experience.

This hotel truly is a jewel. While visiting family in Amsterdam spent three glorious days at Hotel 717 in the Schubert Suite. This 5-windowed suite overlooks the Prinsengracht Canal. It was amazingly quiet - I had expected some noise from the street, but no. The furnishings are absolutely beautiful and luxurious. The art work makes one stop in one's tracks. The beds afford a sound replenishing sleep. This makes one wake up, renewed and ready for breakfast. I had mine in the breakfast room, where English (and other) morning newspapers were available. A cup of coffee never tasted so good, and I thought the choice of available breakfasts was excellent . I don't know where they find their staff. They are exceptional. Each day when coming back from walking, shopping, etc, one of them is there to greet you and invite you to have a cup of tea - or a glass of wine - or how about spirits? The libation of choice is accompanied by most tasty snacks - all complimentary. This is enjoyed in one of their drawing rooms. Another small detail - the (tastefully hidden) refrigerator in the sitting room of the suite had a selection of water, soft drinks, wine, beer - all complimentary. This hotel really thinks of everything - it is as if the owner is saying to the guests "Your wish is my command." The location of the hotel couldn't be better - one can walk everywhere.
I plan on returning here in the future.

We have just returned from a weekend stay at Hotel 717. We were really looking forward to it - especially after reading such great reviews - and were certainly not disappointed. From the moment we were greeted at the impressive front door - to the moment we left - we felt thoroughly cossetted. Every single member of staff was helpful and very courteous. The breakfasts - both in the stunning breakfast room and in our opulent bedroom - were beautifully presented. We enjoyed complimentary coffees and glasses of wine accompanied by various nibbles - olives, salami etc in each of the three drawing rooms downstairs before venturing out to the nearby shops, restaurants and bars. (The tram stop is only 50 metres away and Anne Frank's house is on the same canal approx 500 metres away.)
All in all we had a sensational time and are looking forward to our next visit.

Hotel 717 is an excellent place to stay. Its location could not be bettered nor could its service. It is billed as a home from home and that is exactly what it is. From the time I arrived to the time I left, it was great. And the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. It is a little pricey but I have to say it is worth it.

Our experience at 717 was fabulous. My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful and accommodating. The room (Shakespeare Suite) was perfect. The continental breakfast was the BEST way to start our day. And the location is excellent. We walked everywhere. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on our next trip to Amsterdam.
