“110% staying again!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Amazing location, great to have a stunning apartment to come back to after a day sightseeing to then use the lovely shower to get ready and hit the bars and clubs which are also really close. Felt like home. Gorgeous view of the canal just outside the window. iPad was a good touch and the free wi-fi always goes down well. So many things near by to see and do. Great coffee shops, restaurants. Didn't need to use public transport once even in the cold....was able to walk to ann frank house, red light district, dam square, amsterdam dungeons, sex museum etc. The room was very contemporary and clean. Felt very safe in the area. Only downside we the 'mini fridge' unable to fit a lot in it and it wasn't very cold, also no toaster and I wasn't told how to use the coffee maker, but these things to me we're not a major issue. I'm sure if I contacted 'kai' the owner he would of explained how to use it. Check out was simple enough, just had to leave the key in the room at 11am. FYI taxi from and to airport from the apartment costs around €40. I will most definitely be travelling to amsterdam again and first choice of accommodation will be amstel house...

Stayed here with my girlfriend a few nights. The apartment is beautiful and clean och the location is just great! The only thing that bothered us a bit was the constant sound from the waterpipes. We will be back :-)

I chose these apartments as I knew that they were in an excellent location and looked lovely in the photographs. Sure enough we found our way to them without a problem. We were very early as check in was at 14:00 but Kai had advised us that we could call if we arrived early to see if it was possible to store our luggage. We called from the Rembrandtsplein which is just behind the apartments and were advised someone would meet us outside in 20 minutes. A lovely, friendly lady arrived at 11am promptly and securely locked away our luggage in the apartment block and advised us Kai would return at 14.00 to deal with our check in. This happened as promised without any issues, we were taken to our room and paid our 260 euros which I feel was extremely reasonable for the view and location. We did not have a televison as promised, but this was not a problem as we didn't want to spend our weekend watching television anyway. We did however have an Ipad and a wonderful view of the Amstel river which was a bonus. The bed was extra comfortable and as mentioned before, the bathroom and shower was of a really good size. I cannot see how previous reviewers have stated that it was dirty. We found the room to be exceptionally clean and any dirty would have been noticeable as the room is decorated in black and white. We did not experience any of the noise that has been previously mentioned either. Overall I think these apartments offer excellent value and we received really good service. If we were to return in summer or spring, i would love to book the upstairs room with the roof terrace but either way I would not hestitate in booking to stay at the House of Amstel again. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

Excellent location, which was easy to find. We were on the top floor with our own private terrace which was great. Lovely views of the city, however I would only book this room in the summer to enjoy sitting and using the BBQ which had been provided. The other rooms seemed to be just as good. The bed was very comfy and the shower was great. There is a closet to hang your clothes together with a iron, ironing board, hairdryer, shampoo, shower gel, and all kitchen appliances. They even supplied tea and coffee. There is a convenience store a few doors down where we got some milk. Excellent value for money and next time we come to Amsterdam, we will be booking to stay here.

The pictures posted online are glamour shots not the reality. If all you care about is a private roof deck then this place may be right for you. However, if you'd like a room with a comfortable bed and pillows, a quiet place to sleep in a good temperature, or you'd like a room that is even remotely clean- I'd stay away from this place. At $250 a night I don't think it's too much to ask for the above and a TV and water kettle that functions. All I can say is yuck!

We stayed at the House of Amstel for several days and couldn't have enjoyed it more. It is not your typical hotel, it is more like renting an apartment...you get the experience of staying in one of the traditional, classic Amsterdam-style houses along its famous canals. The rooms, though, are like those in a modern hotel, stylishly decorated with more amenities than I have seen at hotels 4 times more expensive. There was a small kitchen area, which made stocking our own breakfast convenient. Each room has it's own iPad and it's own Nespresso coffee make, pods included. Both are incredible touches that I had never seen before. Such details are common in the hotel. The hotel only recently opened and you can tell that no corners were cut...the finishings in the bathroom are high end, the bedding is great, the decor is inspired.

House of Amstel borders the Amstel Canal and is close enough to walk everywhere you might want to go. The views of the canal, both up and down, are exactly the views you want to see when visiting. You are directly in front of the beautiful Hotel De L'Europe and have views of two bridges.

We had great experiences with the staff and the owner, a young man from Amsterdam. He was very helpful with suggestions and it really seemed as if he wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

A great hotel...highly recommended.

We stayed on the third floor suite with a beautiful view of the canal and Amstel street. We had a difficult time finding the place, walking passed it a couple of times before seeing the paper on the door with the name. The suite was very spacious and clean. It had a nice kitchenette with a Nespresso, fridge, sink and dishes. The IPad is a great idea! Street was busy but not extremely so. Great location just around the corner fr the Rembrandt Square. It is a great value and we would definitely go back.
