“Wonderful Amtsredam Experience”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Friendly and relaxed welcome from our host who insisted on carrying heavy bags up/down narrow stairs. Good breakfast with freshly cooked pancakes - all varieties and eggs/bacon. We were really made to feel welcome and felt part of the old city.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor room rather than the lower level.

My wife and I stayed in the Boutique Hotel View for three nights at the end of September. Our room was roomy, unite and clean. The hotel owner Natalie and her staff, Anya and Momma were delightful. They provided any help we needed, provided directions, and recommendations freely and always with a smile. Breakfast was always wonderful. Anya's pancakes and eggs were delicious and plentiful. I was rather fond of the fresh croissants too!

This hotel gets my top rating. I will certainly book there on my next trip to Amsterdam, my favorite city!

Room Tip: The large double in the back is very quiet. The front rooms have an exceptional view!

We have just spent 3 nights at Boutique Hotel View, to celebrate our Silver Wedding, and the hotel came fully up to our expectations. The location is excellent, and the level of service was outstanding - Natalie does a remarkable job, combining managing arrivals and departures while simultaneously looking after breakfasts. Our room was on the third floor at the rear, and was comfortable and quiet. There were a couple of minor snags in the room, but the only reason for mentioning these is to report the rapidity with which the maintenance man arrived to fix them, and the gratitude of the staff for being informed of the problem. This hotel will definitely be our choice when we next visit Amsterdam.

Room Tip: A room at the rear is quiet.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. What really makes it special is the personal and attentive service from Nathalie and other staff who really go out of their way to help. We enjoyed our stay very much and are planning to return soon!

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed everything about our trip.
The hotel is lovely, clean and comfortable, would be difficult if you have a disability as it's over 3 floors and no lift.
The staff are fab, very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast is continental with a good choice but you could also have scrambled eggs and bacon or delicious pancakes, both are made to order.
The hotel is very close to tram, bus and canal transport, to carry you around this beautiful city.
Lots to do and see, the Diamond factory tour is free and you get to see and possibly hold some fabulous diamonds!
There are museums galore, the difficult bit is choosing which one to visit next.
Transfer from and back to the airport couldn't be easier, take the bus197, it cost us 4€ each way and only takes 20 mins, it stops at the end of the street.
Lots of good places to eat, we liked 'The Hole In The Wall' Irish pub, it has a good atmosphere and good food.
We will go back.... Loved it.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view.

Do not book here if you are expecting the usual bland blancmange hotel chain. Do book if you want to experience friendly Dutch hospitality delivered with a warm welcome.

Be warned, there is no lift and the rooms are accessed via steep stairs typical of old Dutch buildings. No worries with luggage though as owner Natalie easily handles your bags upstairs. A stay here is a real Amsterdam experience you'll be eager to tell all your friends about. The atmosphere in the common reception & breakfast area is so "heel gezellig" you will feel like family immediately. Don't go out for breakfast as Natalie provides so much fresh ingredients you will not find better value. There is ample selection of breads, cereals and fruits and natural Dutch yoghurt. Eggs are cooked to order and Natalie's pancakes seem to have a legendary status that I cannot disagree with. Simply delicious!

Rooms are comfortable and above all very clean. Staff are friendly and conscientious.

Oh, and the view? Yes, Boutique Hotel View is right on the "hoek" of the canal with perfect Amsterdam canal views.

Tip: Catch the 197 bus direct from Schiphol to Leidseplein, a short 3 minute walk to the hotel. Cost is just Euro 2.40.

Room Tip: Top floor is quiet.

We have nothing to complain about this hotel, except for stairs to rooms they are narrow and steep but you will find that with the older hotels. We were welcomed with a warm friendly and helpful smile. Reception staff carried our luggage to our room which we were very grateful for. Beds and pillows were comfortable, rooms clean and tidy. Breakfast layout is Danish but really good if you like that kind of food. Homemade pancakes we had the apple pancake OMG! Homemade pastries as well fresh fruit. Morning staff very friendly. The hotel is right near a canal and walking distance to most main attractions not to far to walk to tram stations and resturants. If we were to return to Amsterdam we would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you don't like climbing steep staircases ask for first level.
