“Really enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Returned yesterday after 3 nights in the 'Dukes Suite' at the Amstel Corner with my wife and 6yr old daughter.
On arrival (which was quite late), we were met by Fokko, the owner, who showed us to our room which is at the very top of the building, up some very steep, narrow stairs, which is pretty standard for Amsterdam. We never saw him again but were able to stay in touch by email or text if necessary.
We loved the room. It has a nice view over the Amstel river, is modern, clean and well equipped with an induction hob, combi microwave, fridge and plenty of plates, cups, utensils etc. I particularly appreciated the coffee machine in the morning. It also has a HDTV and a decent stereo system if you wanted to use them. There was supposed to be a DVD player but it never materialised.
The double bed was comfortable but on the soft side, as was the single bed for the little one. There is lots of contemporary lighting around the room and the on-suite shower room is modern and spotless.
The only downside we found is that the room is facing a busy road and the traffic noise was pretty loud and went on until late. Although I've got to say it never disturbed the little one, who slept like a log.
There are tram stops within 150m which take you to the main spots of Dam and Rembrant Square, all the way down Central Station and vice versa. You can also take a walk, following the Amstel river, down to the above areas. It's a fair distance but there are plenty of opportunities to stop for coffee en-route and take time to appreciate the beautiful buildings of Amsterdam. FYI we jumped in a taxi from central station and it cost 16 euro.
On our last day, check out was 1100 however we were able to leave bags at the hotel to be picked up later as our flight was not until 2120. Great service.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying at the Amstel Corner again.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Play room. The room was very well equipped & clean, lovely bathroom & the little kitchenette came in handy. Located on the top floor, I wouldn't recommend to anyone with problems climbing stairs. As previous reviews state, it's a very steep climb!

Excellent location along a canal, quiet at night & the area seemed safe. Walking distance to most sights in central Amsterdam. The owner was quite helpful with directions before arrival & check in was a breeze.

Would definitely recommend & would stay here again.

We spent a few days in Amsterdam as part of our honeymoon and must say the hotel was definitely one of the highlights. We loved the room (Play room on the top floor), the quirky furniture and the amazing authentic building. The hotel has 4 rooms and the location is perfect as very central but still super quiet. Lovely bars, restaurants and cafes only a few minutes away.

The owner was really lovely and his great taste shows everywhere in the hotel. He also surprised us with a bottle of fizz and a lovely note once he found out it was our honeymoon :)

Would recommend and happily go back :)

Room Tip: Play room overlooks the garden and is on the top floor and very quiet. Light and airy with huge wind...

We stayed in the Dream Room for 3 nights, it was a nice quiet room at the back of the hotel overlooking gardens. A really comfortable bed, little shower room and fab little kitchen unit, just enough for making breakfast and coffee. Lovely stay and we hope to come back soon, would def stay again as excellent value for money and only a short walk to lots of restaurants and Brown Cafes.

Even though we were told the stairs would be steep, we had no idea how steep they really were. Luckily our bags were carried up for us! Other than that it was a unique experience. Located close to transit right across fom a canal.
