“You have got to try this place !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

This "quirky" little bed and breakfast is faultless , each room has been designed and decorated in a theme and has been done so to a high standard , The owners give their personnel attention to every detail and it shows , Amsterdam would not actually feel the same without staying in this hotel . Its position next to the canal and near to all tourist sites and the station is ideal ! I was originally looking at the larger higher star hotels in the area when my friend (who we went with ) pointed this little place out , we would not normally try a 2 star but the revues were so good that we thought we would try it !! So glad we did !!!! Well done to the owners ...!! If you are looking for a couple of nights get a away ...you have to stay here ..!! (just a warning to those who are infirm or have any leg problems , then ask for a room on the first floor , the staircase is very steep and narrow ...but worth the climb if your quite able !! ) ENJOY !! xx

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor overlooking the garden ...beautiful ,clean room .

Very personalized service. Absolutely outstanding. We stayed here for one week at the end of June, 2012 and could not be happier with our accommodations and the warm and helpful service we received from the owners--their 'watch' cat is even loving. The rooms are adorable, artsy, and very clean. And, of course it did not hurt that they have Nespresso machines in every room. The breakfasts are fresh, good, and nutritious. Pepijn is truly very helpful with everything. He can get tickets for anything, so there's never waiting in lines to get into the popular museums. We absolutely would not stay any other place in Amsterdam. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: check Trip Advisor before any other site.

Chic rooms, cheap rates, situated in downtown Amsterdam and with friendly owners (?) treating everybody like an oldtime friend... No wonder why they're nearly always full. The Misc is a great place to stay. Thanks for the experience!

We were looking for a hotel within walking distance of the train station and centrally located this hotel was perfect for both. The main tourist attractions are about a ten min walk away and it is just around the corner from the red light district also a few doors down from an amazing Thai restaurant and 5 min walk to china town. Room was spacious as was bathroom but very steep stairs to third floor but worth it when we got there! Room was beautiful with lovely big windows only one tiny complaint was that the chandelier had not seen a duster for a very long time! Mini bar was full of drinks and snacks which was very welcome and the bed and bedding very clean and good quality, slept very well. Wonderful breakfast in the morning searved till 12. Would highly recommend and i normally would not consider a 2 star but this place was fab.

I initially chose this hotel based on its location, reviews, and price. This was my first trip to Amsterdam so I wanted to stay near the hustle and bustle of the city without being overwhelmed. Misc really fit the bill. It’s located on a bustling canal with a number of great restaurants and bars just up the block. The red light district and a number of tourist attractions are a quick stroll away, and to move farther afield there is a metro station across the canal. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to start our travels through the city.

The hotel itself was fantastic. We stayed in the baroque room at the top of the house. It was much larger than we expected and the bathroom was huge. Both were clean and in great condition, the room also comes equipped with a mini fridge filled with interesting snacks and a variety of drinks which was nice to find. I do a bit of travelling in the US for work and did not have high hopes for the mini bar, but I’m happy to say I was pleasantly surprised to find nice chocolates, juices, along with soda, wine, chips and beer. The room had a few large, beautiful windows that we could open. Since we happened to be there on an especially warm weekend in early May we made good use of them. We slept with them open most nights and had no problems with noise (not that I expected any but I read someone had been complaining about this earlier and wanted to note that we were there on a beautiful spring weekend and did not have any problems with it… honestly we didn’t hear much at all from the street.)

We spent time interacting with both Rachel & Pepjin (the innkeepers) during our stay. Rachel is extremely friendly and was really helpful in planning out some of our wanderings / excursions throughout the city. I notice that some folks thought that Pepjin was a bit gruff but we found him to be open and approachable. He did the majority of the cooking while we were there and the breakfasts were great, everything was fresh and delicious - bread & coffee, had-squeezed juices, along with a variety of yogurts, fruits, eggs, cheeses, and meats… there was plenty for just about any palate.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately a long weekend wasn’t quite enough time to see everything we wanted but both agreed that Misc would be at the top of our list of hotels when we return.

Thank You Trip Advisor for helping us to find this great hotel.
Dont be put off by the quirky name. This is not your normal Tourist Chain hotel. It is a boutique hotel in a great location in Nieuwmarkt. Amsterdam is a very walkable city and Misc eatdrinksleep is an excellent base for an Amsterdam visit. The Niewmarkt district is very central and has great restaurants, bars and shopping. An easy 8 minute walk to Dam Square, 2 minute walk to Chinatown and about 10 minute walk to the main rail station and harbour. The Red Light district is located on a canal behind Chinatown, but there is absolutely no issues in staying at this hotel. The hotel is located on a canal which is quiet, safe and delightful.
Each hotel room is individually themed and decorated and very comfortable. It has the normal steep and narrow staircase of an Amsterdam Canal House, but your luggage is quickly carried upstairs to your room - and downstairs again on departure.
We had a canal view room and were not disappointed. Did not experience any noise at night, but our four night stay was not over a weekend. The free mini bar in the room is a bonus.
The included breakfast is individually prepared for you each morning including eggs, bacon, ham and continental as required. And very good coffee.
If you are coming from the airport, take advantage of their limo transfer service - fair pricing, clean car and driver provides a short tour of the city on the way to the hotel.
Owners Rachel and Pepjin are friendly and helpful and enjoy hosting you in their boutique hotel.
Very good all round value in an excellent location.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a canal view and although we did not experience any street noise, other reports men...
