“Charming Rooms in Quaint and Quiet Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We recently stayed 5 nights in Suite C at the Seven Bridges Hotel in Amsterdam. It came highly recommended by a friend, and we now agree. The hotel is located at the intersection of several canals amidst several quiet tree lined streets. It was so sedate and lovely. We did not stay in the main building, but in a building two doors down in which there are several "suites" sitting rooms. As a result, there is no breakfast served in these rooms, so I cannot comment on that, as I have seen in other reviews.

Our room was lovely and spacious for European lodgings. The room was decorated in an eclectic style with some lovely antiques. The bed was memory foam, and SO comfortable. Now I want to buy one for myself. Linens soft, good pillows. It is a unique place with it's own style - you will NOT feel like you are in a cookie cutter hotel, but a lovely apartment of your own on a quiet canal.

The room had a tub/shower, WIFI, TV (didn't use), phone, small refrig, and hairdryer. The owner was helpful with getting us settled and arranging cabs when we needed them. We did not stay in the main building, as I mentioned, so I don't know how much he is around in the main house. We really felt like we were staying in our own apartment, but he was very helpful when needed. They did come and make beds/clean each day. I agree - the stairs to the suite are incredibly steep! But we got used to it, and had help from the owner with our baggage when needed. I don't think you'll find anything different in any other of the canal houses in the area - possibly better in larger hotels.

I will say, the location was great. Amsterdam is small, so most things are within walking distance. That being said, we were a 5 minute walk to Rembrandplein (plaza), where there is apparently some good nightlife (we did not partake), 10 minutes to the Museum Campus, 5 minutes to another street along the Amstel where there seemed to be a lot of restaurants frequented by locals, and 15 minutes from "downtown" Amsterdam. We loved walking the outer canals (Prinzengracht, Herengracht, Kierzergracht) and just finding things - cute shops and restaurants. The river life was fun to watch as well.

GREAT restaurant nearby on Prinzengracht - Buffet Van Odette. Fixed menu on Mondays and a la carte otherwise. Fare is light and fresh and delicious, and you can sit outside and watch the life on the Prinzengracht canal go by as you dine. We went TWICE, and would have gone more if we had been there longer. Can't say enough good things about it. We also rented bikes from Mike's Bikes (5 mins away on Kerkerstraat?), and managed to survive the crazy traffic life (mostly bikes) of Amsterdam. Was useful when we really wanted to go way across town. But a little harrowing. Near Mike's Bikes was a great little epicure/food shop called Stach - great sandwiches, fresh packaged salads, drinks, cheeses, pastries, cookies etc. And a cool soup place across the street. There's a Starbucks down on Rembrandtplein.

If you like to have a more personal experience when you travel, as opposed to staying in a hotel where the decor does not reflect the culture, this is the place for you! We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The suites in the adjacent building are more like little apartments -very private.

In a superb location, by a quiet tree lined canal, walking distance to trams, some great restaurants, friendly staff, rooms with real character. The most comfortable bed ever. Stayed in room 4, I will be back!

Best location you could possibly hope for. Really quaint despite being in heart of city. Room clean and well cared for. Most of all very friendly management makes it a place I'll look forward to returning to when I'm next in Amsterdam.

Small family inn. Stayed there for a week in room 7. Very clean, well furnished and... with such a view on the canals. It's downtown but with a special character. Very quiet. We also received good advices from the manager. Not very expensive.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view on the canals, although some other rooms may look better.

It's so nice to meet a host who really cares. Helpful, polite and always smiling. This makes this place worth the stay even before you even walk inside to see the nice rooms and enjoy the lovely breakfast either in the hotel or at any of the numerous cafes nearby.

And as for a location it probably doesn't get much better than this with all the main attractions close by and plenty of young mums on their bikes ready to 'run you over' if you are not fully aware of where you are walking!! :)

The only drawback at this wonderful hotel is the spiral stairs which can prove challenging for older people; but after all, this is Amsterdam.

Beautiful hotel in a perfect location. Close to pretty much anything you'd want to see but in a quiet spot. We were in Garden Room 5 which has its own patio/balcony - ideal for a late chill with a nightcap or catching the sun in the morning. Helpful, friendly proprietor. Can't wait to go back!

Spent four nights in the attic room. It was spotless, bright and airy. Location was very convenient and quiet. Italian restaurant a couple of doors away produced best truffle risotto I have tasted. We chose not to have breakfast in the hotel but on the last morning we were served a lovely complimentary breakfast. Bathroom facility was excellent. By the end of the stay we had worked out a method to climb the steep stairs, crab-like... And we are in our sixties. Other rooms looked more spacious, but ours was very good value for money..

Room Tip: If choosing an attic room make sure you are travelling light!
