Felt authentic, clean, friendly, simple but lovely brekkie. Chilled music at all times. Exactly what was required. Great location. Reasonably priced. I would very much recommend. Possibly not with small kids just because of layout but perfect in every other aspect

There is not another hotel like this in Amsterdam. I've stayed in the Grand Hotel Krasnopolsky and the Brouwer: I like them equally, although the Krasnapolsky is three times as expensive. The single rooms are very small and cozy. The double rooms are perfect for couples. Breakfast is typical Continental with good coffee, bread and croissants, and an egg boiled... More

We stayed on the top floor with a great view of the Singel Canal and west toward Jordaan, which not as noisy as I wondered about. The exposed beam design was quaint. Several windows allowed cross ventilation. The bathroom was one of the best I've experienced in Europe in this price range with a shower, a separate bath tub, and... More

So quaint! And the view on the canal is fantastic. Room and bathroom are clean and simple. You have everything you need, even an elevator. Good wholesome breakfast in a beautiful breakfast room. Friendly staff. Very good value for a budget hotel. I did not like the dog barking in the reception area when I arrived nor hanging around the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for several nights and had a room that overlooked the canal--- beautiful! The history of the structure is interesting; we enjoyed admiring the wooden cabinets in our quaint room, so perfectly tied to the structure's story. The breakfast was filling and the staff was warm and helpful. We loved the breakfast room!... More

We are 5 mature adults who stayed four nights at hotel Brouwer. The location is excellent. We were close to the Jordaan district and Ann Frank house. We were also 10 minutes from the train station. We were within walking distance of the art museums and many good restaurants. We had top floor rooms , all with a wonderful view... More

This was a unique experience and not for those who prefer big name hotels. Location was great- 10 minute walk to Central Station and Anne Frank House. Loads of restaurants in the area and a view of the canal from the room. Breakfast was very nice and the coffee was delicious. The stairs were scary and the elevator really tiny-... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Brouwer many times and we love it. This is more of a B & B than a full fledged hotel. The building is from the 1600's so it naturally has many quirks. The floors slant, the windows are single pane, the elevator is tiny, the stairs are steep - but that is its charm.... More

We appreciate all feedback and have addressed issues in this review that we feel were valid complaints. The closet has been totally refurbished.The reason the owner slept in the room is the same reason a chef tastes his food; quality control. We find the room,bed and bedding to be in perfect order (we of course keep all bedding clean and... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
