“Why stay anywhere else?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

So many reviewers before me have described this charming place in detail so I would just like to add that we chose this place because of the reviews we had read and we were not disappointed! Don't worry about the stairs!! My parents age 70 and 75 managed them easily (and mom had even been in the hospital the week before we came for a stomach surgery!)
The owners are very helpful and we got a lot of useful advice like travelling over Leiden to Keukenhof instead of going via Schipol like everybody else does! Saved us a lot of waiting in line for the Expressbus since fewer people take the other route. And that trainride is even more beautiful since you pass a lot of tulipfields on the way. We also got help making reservations at restaurants which we appreciated a lot! It felt like we were visiting friends/relatives since the place is so small and private and they make you breakfast in the morning. The location couldn't be better and it felt very safe! I will definately recomend all my friends to choose this hotel whenever they go to Amsterdam!

Room Tip: I guess if you choose a canalviewroom (like my parents did) it's better to be on level 3 if you...

The Misc gives full value for your money: Great location in the centrum of the city (5 minutes walking from Dam square), comfortable and spacious room with all the amenities you need: Espresso machine, robe, free mini bar and even an iron, tasty and satisfying breakfast. If you take the canal view room you get an amazing view from your window. To summarize, I recommend this hotel big time.

It was clear from our 4-night stay at this boutique hotel that a great deal of thought has gone into every detail that made our stay so delightful. Our room had everything we needed, with some extras. The breakfast provided by Gabriel was wonderful. The owners were so welcoming; their ready advice and help arranging activities was spot-on - including their directions for where we could ride their bikes for a day. Even the reading material in the breakfast room was fun to look at. They provided us with a continental breakfast tray the night before our early departure. We will not hesitate to stay there again as besides being a great little hotel in and of itself, the location by Nieuwmarkt is perfect. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We were on the canal side, and though it was a little noisy, it was cool enough that we could close...

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago for 2 nights . We dont normally stay in such small hotels, but we were delighted with our choice . The location is great, a 10 minute walk from Centraal Station . You are right beside the re Light district but still seperate from it . The rooms are much bigger than you would think from looking at the building from the outside . The owners, Rachel and Pepijen are lovely people, and have great advice for where to go, and how to get around the city . Becareful of pepijens advice, no matter how odd it seems, he always seems to be right .
Overall a really great place to stay and we definitly intend to return

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a lovely view, but may be a little noisier

I've never actually written a review before however after such an amazing few days at Misc eatdrinksleep I felt compelled to do so. I booked a 3 night stay as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th and can't recommend it highly enough! We were greeted by the very helpful and welcoming Rachel who provided us with maps and local information, including restaurant recommendations, whilst arranging for our bags to be taken upstairs. The room was incredibly charming with lots of lovely little touches (including chocolates and a bottle of prosecco!) - the bed was unbelievably comfortable and my boyfriend is still raving about the Nespresso machine and fridge of endless goodies (not to mention the breakfast)! The hotel was spotless, quirky and in a fantastic location overlooking a quaint little canal leading to Nieuwmarkt Square. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic and memorable stay in Amsterdam, we'll certainly be back.

We stayed 3 nights and requested and received a room at the back of the house on the 1st floor(poor knees on my part) and loved every part of our stay. Both owners were very helpful in taking our bags upstairs, pointing out places to eat, getting tickets on line however the Rijkesmuseum did not let us go in with our tickets and we had to get in line to replace them for their tickets once we entered the museum (the owner said she would call their ticket agency to let them know about this as this museum had been closed for 10 yrs and just reopened). The man making our cooked to order breakfast was lovely and we talked to him each day, perhaps because we were his last breakfast he had more time, but when he was busy he was more efficent and not as talkative but he was very interesting. We left our bags on our last day so we had time to go out to the Kinderhof Gardens which the owner told us we could get to very easily by taking the metro to the airport and getting the busses from there as they left every 10/20mins. We really didn't even know we were near the red light district till Friday night when we were walking back from Dam Square and took a short cut and came upon it. There is a square down the street from the hotel which is family oriented with a market on Saturday's and outdoor cafes and it was easy to get to as we took the train in from the airport then the metro to Newmarket(all metros go this way so no getting lost and it's the first stop) then on the other side of the market is the street and down 2 blocks.

The building is quaint and in a great location. The owners are so incredibly nice and helpful. This is my first visit to Amsterdam and to misc eatdrinksleep -- but it won't be my last!! The steps are a little challenging so don't stay on the top couple of floors if tiny and steep steps are a problem.
