Brilliant location (away from the tourist area) right around the corner from a brilliant shopping strip, close to basically everything. Hotel is amazing, excellent service - the staff are so friendly and helpful. We could not recommend them any higher!

Five nights in a pleasant, canal -facing boutique hotel in Amsterdam. Located in a perfect section of this city, the Jordaan aka West Amsterdam. A short neighborhood walk to the Tram And the Anne Franchise house, great restaurants and the "Nine Little Streets" section of shops. We walked (10 minutes) to Sebastian's from the Central Train Station pulling our suitcases. Wonderful 10 Euro breakfast, and bar make this hotel warm & friendly.

The shining bright spot is the staff! So helpful, so friendly, youthful energy. They all seem to speak every language in the world!

We stayed here at the beginning of March. From the beginning of our stay to the end we found the staff very friendly, helpful and attentive. Our room was beautifully decorated with flat screen tv , nespresso machine and iPod dock. The breakfast was good, with plenty of choice, always fresh. The hotel itself is on a beautiful canal and well positioned for shopping and sightseeing.
We will be returning.

I needed a single room as a base while visiting Amsterdam, while meeting with friends and attending a music concert.

Summary: Great place to stay, you will definitely not be disappointed.



Staff were helpful and friendly right from early email enquiries, to arrival, stay and departure.

I've stayed in Amsterdam before, and visited several times since and always try to find excellent hotels that aren't overpriced. I was not disappointed with Sebastian's.

The friendly barlady helped me unwind with a few beers and a enlightening conversation after my arrival.

The room was clean and cosy, and faced the back of the hotel which overlooks a small back area and some other houses. Picturesque with trees.

I didn't opt for the meals, but it looked enjoyable and social when I looked in.

Room Tip: I would recommend obtaining a canal-facing room for those new to Amsterdam, because it is the view y...

I was with my husband for our birthday getaway and the privacy, location of the hotel was perfect. The breakfast spread was also very good and staff knowledgeable and gave good recommendations. The room price though is on the top end.

My first interaction with the Sebastian staff was via email. I made a request while booking online and received a prompt reply acknowledging my request and confirming the arrangements to be made. I was very impressed and was looking forward to our stay. When we arrived we were not disappointed. The property is beautifully located on a central canal. Quiet, yet close to attractions. The reception staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was tastefully decorated, large, and accommodated us nicely. Throughout our stay the staff continued to impress. Housekeeping had us coming back to a beautifully made room each day. The bar/food and beverage staff were courteous and attentive. But I must say, the reception staff really went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one.

Thank you Hotel Sebastian's,

We had a small double which was small and dark as on the inner courtyard area. Would benefit from more controllable lighting (dimmable). Bit gothic for our taste and a tad expensive but overall a pleasant stay. The canal view rooms much bigger and better from a quick look. Staff very helpful and friendly and location was great...10 mins from train station. Would stay again if we could get a better rate with the larger canal view room.
