Amstel Riverview
Ranked #170 of 337 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The Amstel Riverview is a value hotel with lovely views across the Amstel River. The rooms are quite good, but be warned some rooms are better than others. You are greeted by a steep flight of stairs to the second floor, which is of course commonplace in Amsterdam. The reception area is not manned but the receptionist is available if needed.The two front rooms on this floor are totally different, our favourite, which is very comfortable is known as 'K2'. It opens out onto a kitchen area, which is quite handy for that last minute coffee.
The hotel is worth considering if you are on a budget.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the river on the second floor. Room K2 the better of the two.

It's in a nice quiet part of Amsterdam and our room looked onto the back courtyard gardens which is a pleasant view. The rooms are OK but walls are paper thin and our room was just dull Bathrooms and kitchen were clean but lots of queuing on a weekend to get access to the bathroom. The stairs are very steep so beware but standard to Amsterdam. You could do worse but it's nothing special and impossible to find the staff at check out.

We were looking for a place to spend a few nights in Amsterdam. The prices if hostels and guesthouses are sky-high. While feeling hopeless, we stumbled upon Amstel RiverView. Their website is impressive borderline too good to be true. The frontdesk person was very warm and helpful. He even offered to carry the luggage of my female friend to our room which is on the 3rd floor. We were assigned to a room on the opposite side of the building so we didnt have the riverview-view.

The location strategic. A tram station is just around the corner of the entire block.

Room Tip: No elevator. Steep stairs. You've been warned. aside from that everything is fine.

Nice rooms, clean shared bathroom, toilet and kitchen. Situated in a nice quiet part of Amsterdam but still very close to city centre. Lovely view onto the amstel river. Would definitely reccomend. Only downside is that there are lots of stairs but that is to be expected in many hostels in Amsterdam.

I found the Amstel View on the Internet by chance when booking a few nights in Amsterdam. The price was really reasonable and it had generally high reviews on trip advisor. When we got to the hotel I was so happy I had booked. The shared bathrooms and rooms are pretty much spotless. When I got into my comfy bed I could smell the freshness of the sheets and it was brilliant having a well stocked tea and coffee supply in the kitchen next door. And the view from my room was just amazing. The owner (sorry, I didn't catch his name) was so helpful, as with all the Dutch people I have spoken to, nothing was a problem for him. When we arrived he spent a good while discussing the city with us and helping us with transport arrangements. We were so impressed we decided to book a room for another night. When we arrived back we were given a room at the top of the house and it was beautifully furnished. The room and the bathroom were spotless again! The bed was comfy and again the sheets smelt freshly laundered. The view was unbelievable!!!!! The area was ideal for us as we were a short tram journey away from dam square and the bars, but far enough away so we were able to get a quiet night sleep. If your looking for clean, comfy and friendly accommodation that doesn't cost the earth this is the place to be.

This was quick trip designed for comfort and convenience and we certainly got that! Outstanding in every way, but especially Concierge staff. And highest compliments to the beautiful restaurant overlooking canal and serving spectacular food. This was our third visit to this lovely hotel and we are eager to return soon!
