“One of the best hotels I've been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2010

Seven Bridges was a truly unique and lovely hotel experience. We stayed there for 5 nights. It was a trip around my husband's birthday and we met up with a group of friends. We stayed at Seven Bridges and so did one of our friends.

First the one negative: As everyone already mentioned, this hotel is in an old Amsterdam canal house and is not going to be a good choice for travelers with mobility problems.

The owners know what kind of business they're running and they're pretty up front about things. "Service" is minimal. Courteous and informative, but if you need lots of assistance, maybe not a good choice. It was perfect for us. Don't get me wrong, the rooms are cleaned spotless and the breakfast is delivered to your room (and is huge!). But you will have to carry your own bags and can't call for room service etc...

I loved this hotel. We stayed in 2 different rooms (No 9 up on the top floor/attic and No 5, the garden room). We also spent some time in our friend's room (can't recall No. maybe 7?)

When we booked, you could only make reservations directly through their website or on the phone. Initially it looked like we would not be able to stay there but then they were kind enough to let us switch rooms because we really wanted to stay there. I recommend booking early - it's a popular place. The owners also do not allow bookings from large groups to avoid noise and partying. As I said, they make it very clear who's running the ship and this may not be to your liking. We did not mind this attitude as it was never impolite or irrational.

All rooms had a lovely and unique atmosphere. Each item in each room was interesting. Whether or not it's to your taste, you can't help but admire the furnishings and the love and care the owners put to decorating. Absolutely a delight!

The location is excellent, you can sit and watch the canal, or step outside and walk around. Amsterdam is a lovely place and no better place to stay than on the canal in my opinion!

The breakfast is huge - you can easily skip lunch. The website has lots of pictures, although in many cases they do not do justice to the rooms. The rates were reasonable for what I consider to be a very lovely and unique hotel stay, which made our trip even more memorable and enjoyable.

If I go back to Amsterdam, I will stay there again. No doubt.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Seven Bridges for Four Nights.

We highly recommend this Hotel ! It is close to Rembrandt Square, easy transportation connections, great restaurants and people watching.

The room 5 was clean, well furnished, airy with a private patio.

The helpful staff was great.

A special thanks to Hotel Seven Bridges for for making our first trip to Amsterdam wonderful !

We spent five nights in Room C and felt like in a dream. It's even more beautiful than the pictures on the hotel website. It was the perfect getaway from what we usually do. We felt like we were really living in this place as it's more like a small apartment than just a hotel room. The view on the canals is just great. On a sunny afternoon you can just sit and watch the boats passing the house.

A glass wall seperates the bedroom from the main room, making sure you have a quiet place to sleep. That's already worth a lot in Amsterdam as people who go there more often will surely know. After spending too much time in overpriced, cramped and noisy rooms before I'm very happy we found this hotel.

Most places of interest - from the Rijksmuseum to Rembrandthuis to the Red Light District and the little Chinatown around Zeedijk - are within walking distance. And you're staying in an area where not only tourists, but real Amsterdammers live. It''s relaxed, not crowded and gives you an idea of what the good life looks like in this city.

No breakfast is served in Room C as it is in a different building, but you'll find all you need in the neighbourhood, even a supermarket open on Sundays. There's a fridge and all you need to make tea or coffee.

The hotel is a beautiful place to. The hotel is also centrally located near Rembrandt Square.

Room 9 was a large quiet room with beautiful antique furniture. Morning, breakfast brought to your room, and served on beautiful antique crockery.
The owners of the hotel are very friendly and you can see that they are in love with there hotel.
The hotel has a personal touch and is highly recommended for guests who want to feel the real amsterdam!!

We actually stayed here with our three year old and had a wonderful time. The hotel is very quiet and peaceful but close to everything. Breakfast was very delicious and so nice to be delivered to your room where you can eat in peace. I have a feeling that any bad reviews of this hotel are from people who do not understand a traditional, quaint European hotel. If you want the ultra modern, beige mega-hotel head for the "american" branded ones. But, if you want true European hospitality, this hotel can't be beat! It definitely lived up to our expectations!

There are so many wonderful memories about our "Anniversary Vacation" in Amsterdam; the quintessential European Fairy-Tale City of canals and bridges, bicycles, baguettes, flowers, wine and romance.
One of the sweetest memories for us was our stay at Hotel Seven Bridges on Reguliersgracht.
It seems in retrospect that it was nothing less than "an honor" to be a guest at this hotel. Maybe the concept of "Hospitality" was born here?
It has a picturesque location that artists have throughout history chosen to paint; it just doesn't get any better. The hotel has the fragrance of Stargazer Lilies. The scale is 17th (?) Century, yet the bathrooms are 21st.
The breakfast (brought to our room!) was unforgettably delicious! A large ceramic pot of steaming hot coffee, warmed croissants, Dutch cheese and various slices of meats!! Too good to be true!
The room facing the quiet canal, ( No. 7 ), was almost too beautiful to leave, but right out of the hotel you have all of Amsterdam to endlessly explore and it was made all the more enjoyable knowing you will come back to your romantic " dream house in Europe"!

Stayed here last weekend and it really is as good as the reviews suggest.

Its within walking distance of all the major sights and museums, flower market and restaurant.

Eric and Pierre were fantastic hosts and just could not do enough for us, including loaning us a laptop free of charge so we could access the internet.

I normally stay in the Pulitzer Hotel,but the rooms here are bigger, have great canal views and lovely furniture.

Also discovered a great little Italian just down the road from the hotel (turn right and its 50 yards away) called Ponte Arcari with the best pasta I've ever eaten outside Italy (knocking spots off most of the Michelin star places).
