“Fantastic hotel, as if you have a home on the canal in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

Hotel 717 is a great hotel with fantastic service and super cool interior decoration. Very helpful and serviceminded staff, we had a lovely breakfast in our room and every time we came into the hotel the staff was there, offering us drinks and/or snacks. The location could not be better, shops and museums within walking distance. Our room was spacious, very comfortable and made us feel at home, not in a hotel. Go and find out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

717 is a luxury boutique hotel situated on one of the most beautiful canals in the centre of Amsterdam. The hotel has a warm, homely and welcoming atmosphere. I stayed in the Tolkien suite which was beautifully furnished and every care was taken to ensure my stay was comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat with fresh fruit salad and freshly squeezed orange juice and a basket of freshly baked breads and pastries (still warm) all delivered to enjoy in the comfort of my room. The personalised attention from staff who were efficient and friendly was much appreciated.
I will definitely stay in this hotel next time I return to Amsterdam.

Very lovely hotel, very close to the museum area and just off one of the main walking streets/tram/etc. Excellent service - cannot say enough for the personal service at this small boutique hotel. Very much a home feeling.

We stayed in the Shakespeare Room...lovely - great bed, lots of room for 2 - have bf in bed or downstairs in the dining room - freshfruit, breads, and even enough leftovers for a small sandwich snack later in the day during your travels. A mix of guest, from businesspeople, tourists, etc. A couple of great rooms for meetings, get together, etc in the front - if you were there on business, get-togethers, etc.

On one of the evenings, they had some trouble with guests (with adjoining rooms) that were moving back and forth (a little heavy-footed) early in the morning. Because of the style of the hotel/house, it did interrupt our sleep a bit, but both the manager and their staff apologized profusely for the unexpected noise at the morning breakfast.

Before going, I had read another review, which mentioned the a/c not working. Fortunately the 4-days we were in Amsterdam, were not too hot, and we didn't really need it. They supplied a fan, which was more than adequate for the temperature, and put in window screens so that we could open the windows, if we wanted.

The lack of A/C did not affect our enjoyment of our stay, but if the weather had been warmer, this review could have been much different. Hopefully, they fix it sooner rather than later.

All in all, we were very satisfied with the hotel, with the location, great personal service, and home feeling, we would definitely stay again. I would check to make sure the a/c is fixed if going in the summer.....

We rented bikes (Mike's - just around the block) for a couple days - should have rented from the start - but we loved the walking/biking/cafe lifestyle of the Dutch... great place to visit.

The management and staff of this hotel have it down exactly right. From a delicious breakfast in the morning to wine and cheese and other delights in the afternoon, everyone at the hotel puts extraordinary care in making sure that the guests are extremely well attended. Internet service was included at no additional cost.
Amsterdam is a beautiful city and when one combines the visit with at stay at the Hotel Seven One Seven......how can I not return.

I spent 3 nights camping just outside Amsterdam and was looking forward to 2 nights of luxury, this place did not disappoint. The hotel is beautifully furnished in a unique way, feels very homely and posh at the same time. The room was very comfortable, lovely furnishings and antiques. The TV was great, although we didn't watch a lot of it.
We had complimentary wine, beer and nibbles, the nibbles even included steak tartar, which was a first! The service was great and the staff helpful. We stayed in the room at the top and we loved it.
It was not without a couple of problems. Firstly it was not quite as clean as i would have hoped, the bedding was spotless but the walls where a bit grubby and the ceiling in the room above the bed had an access hole to the loft and it was surrounded with dirty hand-prints, not too much of a problem but when you are lying in bed you cant help but stare at it.
The hairdryer in the bathroom was poor and the air conditioner was so noisy we had to turn it off, but we were not allowed the remote for it so we had to ask someone to change the settings on it, which was a bit odd.
Overall it was an excellent place to stay and the location was perfect.

every time we go to Amsterdam (once a year on average), we stay in 717. Their staff is courteous, and helpful. There are only a handful of rooms so each guest is treated with personalised attention. And we love the interior design of each room. It's central location is also a huge perk.
