“great location in old part of amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I wanted to stay in the characterful old part of Amsterdam and this fit the bill perfectly by a canal. If you want to experience the architecture of one of the lovely old buildings- stay here! The stairs are crazy- it was like climbing up a ladder but typical of this style of house. Big room, 2 big windows, very clean, big bed and quirky decor. A quality room with individual character which was just what I wanted. Nice breakfast. A bonus was the fact that I emailed about arriving early and the hotel was happy to look after our bags while we went sightseeing and the same the following day when we checked out. Yes there was a little street noise but what do you expect in a city with single glazed windows in an old building? I used my ear plugs and the white noise machine and slept pretty well. tv has english channels which was good.

Room Tip: I think the quieter rooms are at the back but I liked the view of the canal

I can't say enough good things about this terrific, friendly little boutique hotel. The location is ideal - we walked easily to the Dam, the flower market, Anne Frank's house, and the Amsterdam Historical Museum, and caught a tram to the other museums. We stayed over a weekend in a garden room (Wonders, on the second floor) and had no trouble with noise. Breakfasts were delicious - as others have mentioned, bacon and eggs to order, croissants, fresh juice, cheeses, cereal, fresh fruit, etc. We saw Rachel more than Pepijn and she was super helpful with directions and advice. Highly recommend.

Our stay at the Misc was very enjoyable. The owners were friendly and very helpful, arranging for a car for us from the airport over a period of several emails to assure we had exactly what we needed. The breakfast and location are just right, and the whole hotel has a funky interior, with books, maps and magazines everywhere for tourists to browse through. The stairs are a bit treacherous.The goodies in the minibar were a blessing as we had the munchies and could not resist the chocolate bars. All items were free - something I think is quite rare these days!. What remained with me was that it was not as much a hotel as a friend's place right where you want to be in Amsterdam.

Rachel and Pepijn run the best little place in Amsterdam. Our room was two flights up the narrow twisty stairs, and that's something you get used to easily - it's not like we had to carry our bags up or anything. The bed was big and comfortable, there was a ceiling fan to cool the room off in the afternoons, the bathroom was very clean - really, all you could want. You're supplied with a coffeemaker, room safe, and complimentary beverages in the fridge (water, juice, soda, a couple of Heinekens, and even chocolate bars). The location is just steps from Nieuwmarkt on a pretty canal. We chose a garden view room for reasons of quiet, which was good, as we were in town during Gay Pride festivities, and the streets were pretty loud a couple of evenings. Breakfasts were wonderful with bacon and eggs cooked to order plus fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, and the usual breads, cheeses, and cereals. Rachel and Pepijn were helpful without being intrusive, and we felt extremely welcome. We had spent months looking forward to our trip to Amsterdam, and feel that our stay at Misc made the whole experience better.

Room Tip: The canal side rooms have a view but will be noisier than those with a garden view.

We chose this little gem for a 3 night stop over based on the reviews. Everything lived up to the accolades- nice, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, great location. However, somehow we missed out on the "friendly" staff piece. Not sure why. We are very easy going travelers and delight in most things. But a "you are not really welcome" came through from the guy at the front desk. Later we found out he was one of the owners. Go figure. We did have a room on the canal side, and we wanted to keep the windows open. I HIGHLY recommend using the "white noise" machines that they have in the canal side rooms. We finally figured that out on the 3rd night and a dream sleep we had. We'd come back, but hopefully would have a more welcoming and accommodating attitude coming from the owner.

Room Tip: If you have a canal room, use the white noise machine - brillant.

This was our second stay here and it was fantastic. This place feels like our home in Amsterdam: the rooms, breakfast, service, information, wifi, minibar included etc, you can't fault the place!
