“A real gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Located in a 1710 vintage canal house, the rooms are beautifully decorated (they're not many of them), and we happened to be back at the hotel when one of the owners was there as the rooms were being cleaned, and we got to see all the rooms. While they vary in size and configuration, each was pleasant, and unique. I thought the first floor (European first floor, American second floor) garden view room was spectacular.
I had some rebooking problems with another hotel in another country, and the staff were extremely helpful. All in all, it was a most unusually enjoyable 5 night stay, in a very convient downtown location away from any sort of noise or crowds.

Room Tip: the canal one sees from the canal view rooms doesn't have much traffic, so the garden view rooms...

Booked late and couldn't get a room with a canal view. However, the garden view (not much garden to view in April) room was spectacular, spacious, with a back porch, and exquisitely furnished, as well as the most comfortable bed in our three week trip, including 2 5star hotels.

All requests for info and help were met with pleasant, efficient and effective response, and this is a small place with a small staff. There's nowhere else we'll stay in Amsterdam from now on.

Location is excellent, but things like the Van Gogh Museum, and certainly the Ann Frank House require transportation, at least for us.

Room Tip: The winding stairs are perhaps normal for a 1710 canal house, but if you have a lot of luggage a low...

I had the room on the top floor facing the canal, which had lovely views. The room was spacious with a good sitting area and the largest bathroom I've seen in Europe. But beware, all those flights of stairs are more like a winding ladder than an American staircase. And the room is sunny because of all the windows in the roof, which have red shades that let a lot of light in. Not a problem in winter, but it could make it hard to sleep in summer.
Everything was very clean, there are no common rooms in the hotel. The staff was very friendly, although why did they keep recommending American places to eat? I recommend the cafeteria style restaurant at the Vroom&Dreesman department store on Kalverstraat, not far from the hotel. Good food at reasonable prices, plus it's open 11-8 (most days) so those with jetlag don't have to wait for the restaurants to open.
Good location, especially if you like to wander along the canals.

Room Tip: There is some noise from the canal side, not from cars, but from people walking or biking or passing...

After cancelling an expensive hotel (recession) & then booking this we were very pleased.
Value for money is excellent & Pierre, the chap on the phone & at reception was excellent & very friendly.
Now, don't expect any'Hotel' services' because there aren't any but....we knew that. Coffee shop next door...sorted. Our room was very nice, as was our friends albeit 3 flighrs up. Try to book Garden room on ground floor as we had. Right in the centre of everything....only 5 mins walk to nearest bars & cafes for brekkie & lunch.
Would defo recommend this BUT for Americans.....pls remember that European places are small. (I know what you expect as I rent our holiday apartment in Dublin!)

Room Tip: Ground floor 'Garden Room'

This is a charming hotel and contrary to another reviewer, we loved Room 7. We purposefully selected a room on the canal, anticipating on a holiday weekend there would be some street noise. Not much noise and the joy of having a beer or glass of wine in your room canal-side was just what one dreams about when visiting Holland. All the rooms were beautiful, each one different, expensively appointed and lovely furnishings (ours had a few real antiques). A cozy room with a larger than usual bathroom (which would have benefited from a few towel racks), and plenty of surface space to arrange travel items.

As other reviews have noted, the hotel is well-situated for walking access to nearly anywhere you would want to visit in the city. Added bonus: we were induced to walk so much that we both lost weight despite eating several pasta meals at the wonderful Italian restaurant, Ponte Acari, on the nearby corner.

Pierre was very helpful, suggesting the best travel routes to museums and dining spots, arranging for taxis, dinner reservations. Narrow stairway added to the charm. Surprise breakfast on our final day provided us with enough food for the next 24 hours. We stayed five nights and would welcome a return.

Final note: While the big museums are obvious attractions for hordes of tourists, also consider the Dutch Resistance Museum, a small gem that does a great job of portraying the difficulty of life under Nazi occupation. It's also a lovely amble from the hotel across the Amstel River right near the zoo.

Room Tip: Rooms on the canal side do have some weekend street noise which can be buffered by keeping the windo...

We loved our stay at the Seven Bridges. It is in a great location-near many bars and restaurants and shopping. We could walk almost anywhere. The owners are wonderful, friendly and very helpful. There is a fridge in the room and Internet access as well! We would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone!!
