We stayed for 4 days just before Xmas 2013 - this is a wonderful boutique hotel with an unusual ambiance and luxury rooms. We stayed in the Von Goethe room - looks over the courtyard, quiet and secluded, very comfortable but almost at the top of the hotel - if you want less stairs then pick Shakespeare (first floor) or Tolkien (second floor) - or Schubert or Picasso for a room at the front overlooking the canal - it's a lot of steps up to the Room at the Top! Every room is unique and will not disappoint so make your choice based on how well you can cope with steep stairs and the view you prefer. Service is exceptional - the staff couldn't be more helpful and breakfast is good - be prepared to take your time as it is prepared to order but well worth the wait. As with all quality hotels in Amsterdam, this hotel is pricey but well worth it for the special experience - we did find the extras such as coffee and late night drinks/snacks to be good value for money. Certainly in the middle of winter the rooms are a great place to relax between a day spent walking around the city and a meal out in the evening.
The location is very convenient - on one of the main canals with good walking distance to almost all the city centre with a bonus proximity to the main tram that links the station to the outskirts of the city. We used the tram to get around quickly but we also walked to the Museum district, the main shops, the central station, the "red light" district, Dam Square, toured the canals and a top quality restaurant each evening.
Staying at Hotel Seven one Seven was a totally relaxing experience and after a number of short break trips to Amsterdam, staying in different four or five star hotels, we would always choose this hotel in the future - it's hard to think of any improvements that could be made - except maybe put a mirror carefully positioned in the room so I can plug my hairdrier in nearby and still look in a mirror to dry my hair - its really frustrating trying to dry and style ones hair with no idea what one is doing! - but for four days I still managed OK!!
