We had a mixed experience at this hotel. We stayed three places in Europe and ironically this was the most expensive room and yet our least favorite. Good things - bathroom is WONDERFUL and modern. Hosts are friendly and helpful. They restock your refrigerator with beverages at reasonable rates. Internet cafe was convenient although available only 1300-2400. Negatives were having to remember to close window (note about burglars), thin walls led to hearing lots of stair activity and noise, uncomfortable beds. Did not sleep very well here. Was a little disappointed in breakfast as it didn't have meats as other Dutch breakfasts due. Plus the self-service style was difficult because of ability to maneuver around chairs. Room was small but okay although room 5 did look better than our own and might have helped.

I have stayed at the Amistad twice more since I wrote my last comment.
Once in Jan and once at the end of Feb. The staff continued to provide excellent information and help with every aspect of my stay. I understand they now have a fully furnished penthouse apartment available ... I must check that out the next time I am there.

A friend and I stayed over the New Year for 12 days. The location is perfect! You are close to lots of gay bars, museums, tram and all. It's not on a canal which is what I really wanted (but my friend got the room). The room was expensive due to the high season over New Years, although I did find some better deals in other hotels just before leaving....only not gay hotels. I missed the ammenities of the larger hotels. The breakfast was typical european bread, cheese, cereal..loooooved the cheese. It's a help yourself breakfast which I certainly didn't mind. The staff was always there in the morning with a smile and they really made the stay nice. Gave lots of advice and directions. I would stay here again but I would get the big room for myself and not share it with a friend as it's not really big enough for two who aren't used to sharing close quarters.
