Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.

Bare bones, basic lodging at a great price within walking distance of the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Eijkmuseum as well as the Flower Market. Many excellent restaurants right at your door, also interesting shops, "coffee shops", and right on the canal.

Thank you for your great review. We value your appreciation of our location, etc. By the way the planes only come over us in certain weather conditions (which are rare),for the rest they aren't heard!

What can you say about the Hotel Brouwer that hasn't been said so many times by so many guests? It is a gem of a hotel in a fabulous location. Small, yes. But each of the eight rooms has a super view of the Singel canal and all have a private bathroom with bath or shower ~

From the moment we checked in we were met with a friendly smile and a warmth that fill the hearts of weary travelers. One word....quaint! Owners are the children of the owners back in 1960s. food is still fresh and delicious. View of the canal is all you want in Amsterdam.

Breakfast is 8:15 to 10:30 a.m. There is an ATM 2 blocks down the canal and around the corner, or as already mentioned, on the Dam Square, a 10 minute walk away.

I found it very difficult to sleep, even with earplugs. During summer so windows had to be open and lots of activity on street at night
