“Wonderful Weekend Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The hotel is lovely & the staff are excellent- very helpful! They arranged 2 dinners for us & both places were perfect. Would highly recommend the 717 for anyone looking for a charming weekend away in Amsterdam.

Hotel 717 is probably the most comfortable and nicest hotel I have stayed. The hotel felt like our home from home in Amsterdam but with our own butler. The staff were very friendly and helpful suggesting some excellent restaurants and places to visit off the beaten track. There is a slightly quirky style to the decoration in each of the public rooms giving the hotel a comfortable feel rather than the formal approach of the big hotels.

It is perfectly placed a few yards from the tram stop and a few minutes walk from the Rijks Museum as well as within easy walking of many of the nicer parts of the city.

I have already recommended this to several friends already and will definitely be returning.

Great hotel, huge bedroom with a spacious bathroom and a full living room. Amazing space for a European hotel. Anything you want for breakfast each morning, the room was so clean, towels replaced twice a day, the bed was a huge king with the most comfy bedding. Water and glasses placed at bedside each night. It was the perfect location and perfect private guesthouse.

The Seven one Seven is a refurbished canal house, originally the project of a private couple and now in the hands of a business, it features a handful of beautifully decorated bedrooms, a sitting room, a small library and breakfast room. With period decor and pictures and curios, the house is full of character and style, and makes a very convenient base for exploring the city.

We stayed over New Year and were well looked after by the helpful but not intrusive staff, who also treated us to a glass of champagne and canapés at midnight on the 31st. Breakfasts were excellent, and several neighbourhood restaurants are within easy walking distance. There are also lots of nice touches such as a stock of DVDs and CDs if you stay in, and umbrellas (if you venture out).

Overall, we would highly recommend it as a boutique hotel and we would certainly think of staying there again.

We spent four days at Christmas 2013. An elegant old canal house, perfectly located on one of the prettiest, most central streets in Amsterdam. We stayed in the Picasso Suite, which had wonderful style, a very long table with endless sofas, and a supremely comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean. Every member of the staff was kind, pleasant, and helpful. The view of the canal out of the windows, morning and evening, was magical. We will recommend 717 to our friends and family, and will be sure to return.

This hotel was okay. It was not exceptional. I wouldn't try to stay there again. The building was old, understand you are in Amsterdam, but still. Should not be rated so highly in my opinion. The location was good. Walking around. Was quite easy.

We stayed at Seven one Seven in December and could not have had a more enjoyable visit. The staff was extremely helpful in booking restaurants and suggesting activities, and the room was both highly original and very comfortable. We had the very top of the hotel, which is not for those who cannot comfortably climb stairs, but, for us, it was splendid. Breakfasts are delicious. All in all, a lovely city hotel experience.
