My husband and I stayed here for eight nights. Since he was working during the day I explored Amsterdam by myself. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and went out of their way with advice on where to visit, eat, how to get there etc. There is a good stock of brochures for all tourist activities and tickets can be bought at the hotel to avoid a long wait in the queues. I couldn't have been more looked after and feel that this is quite rare in a hotel these days. Hotel Fita is in an excellent location, is clean, comfortable and, yes, the breakfast is delicious especially those pancakes! I would always choose to stay here on future visits to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Room 14 is light and spacious, but does adjoin a nursery school. The happy sounds of children playi...

Comfortable and clean hotel, with helpful staff. Very safe and quiet neighborhood. Around the corner to Van Gogh Museum and tram. Nice grocery store and restaurants within blocks. Also quite walkable to center of Amsterdam. Staff was very forthcoming with information on where and where not to go. Nice breakfast, pancakes cooked to order. I believe the owners live on the top floor. Will definitely stay again when in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with small balcony, lovely to step outside.

This is a delightful family-owned hotel in which to stay. We spent four days here prior to an Arctic Circle cruise and enjoyed every minute of the stay. The location, in the museum district, provides easy access via cab (all of which take credit cards), trams, and busses to the attractions of the city. The two great museums, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum are in easy walking distance. The VanGogh is a short block away and the Rijks another longer block away. As hearty a breakfast as one would wish is available each morning–do not miss the pancakes. Laundry is provided for the guests free of charge. A drawback is that it seems always to be full so book early.


There are several restaurants nearby: an English Pub type, Canellos, an Italian restaurant and Argentinean steak house, an Indonesian restaurant and the famous Momo’s.
Would we go there again-absolutely, we wouldn’t go anywhere else.

My family and I (3 rooms) stayed here for three nights before our cruise and a further two nights after our cruise. We were so well looked after by the Hotel Fita team! Our rooms (type A) were huge particularly in European standard, beds are comfortable and bathroom is spacious with powerful shower and a nice big tub. The location is excellent and we felt safe walking back from restaurants at nights. Breakfast is plentiful and the yummy pancakes gave us a great start to our busy sightseeing mornings. We loved the way they have a communal fridge stocked full with soft drinks, wines and beers and trusting hotel guest to mark down what they took and charged accordingly. The free wifi and laundry service were a nice bonus. Lastly, the entire team was so pleasant and helpful - excellent service, with a beautiful smile all the time. I would highly recommend this hotel to any of you looking for a comfortable stay in Amsterdam. P.s due to my job as a lawyer, I travel quite a bit and get to stay in 5-star hotels around the world. The personable service from the team at Hotel Fita is something you rarely see at a 5-star hotel these days.

Room Tip: The hotel is situated next to school/playground so you could hear the kids at certain time in the mo...

Perfect location on a quiet street close to the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gough and the Tram. The room was spacious for European standards with tall ceilings and windows that made it feel even bigger. The real live plant was a nice touch. The furnishings were a bit worn and the bed not very comfortable but everything was very clean and the complementary Nespresso in the room was wonderful. Roel and Martijn were very gracious and helpful recommending restaurants and getting our museum tickets in advance so we could avoid the long lines. The breakfast in the morning was amazing with scrambled eggs, bacon, rolls, bread for toast, cereal, juice, fruit, yogurt (the creamiest I've ever had), granola, nuts, dried fruit and made to order Danish pancakes (don't miss these). Also, they do your laundry for free! The bathroom was very large but it was a step up and my husband and I tripped several times fortunately without serious injury but it seemed dangerous. The only other negative was that it was a little short on closet space and drawers and we packed light! A very pleasant stay and we would stay here again.
