Hotel Fita
Ranked #10 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam

Reviewed August 12, 2013

You couldn't find a better location to stay in Amsterdam. The hotel is on a lovely residential street but only a block away from high-end shopping and museums, and a short walk from Leidesplein with its many restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and boat tours. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful, and breakfast is good. Our room (#12) was spacious and bright from a large bay window. Unfortunately, the window overlooks a courtyard of sorts where children play and folks gather, making it rather noisy. Across the courtyard is a hotel that operates as a youth hostel, and many of the youth congregated in the courtyard late at night on the weekends, making it difficult for us to sleep. We had to close the window, which muffled the noise, but made the room too warm, so sleeping was not the best part of this stay. That being said, we would very likely stay here again but request a room on the other side of the hotel. Aside from the late night noise, the hotel is wonderful. We particularly like the large bathrooms, unusual in Europe (though the light was very dim, making grooming a challenge). We definitely recommend the hotel, with the caveat that it's best to avoid room #12 unless you are a very deep sleeper.

Room Tip: Room #12 overlooks a courtyard where guests of a youth hostel gather late at night, creating a lot o...

If you can make it up the steep seven steps into Hotel Fita, you have got it made. The location is in a tree filled, quiet section of the city,only a block from the Van Gogh Museum. Easy access to the excellent transit system combined with a staff that will help you find you destinations makes Amsterdam a snap to visit. We found the tram ride to and from the hotel one of the unexpected delights of the visit. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast on our entire trip. (Eggs and bacon to die for, as well as homemade crepes, yum) We enjoyed talking with the young man who bought this hotel three years ago, and is making Hotel Fita a wonderful hideaway in Amsterdam. I would not stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: We had a fan and a large room on the second floor.

Very nice hotel. Great breakfast. Our room was spacious clean and comfortable. I had an accident while in Amsterdam and every one made sure I had the care I needed. Great location to walk to all museums. Buy your tickets at the hotel to bypass long lineups at museum, we must have saved an hour of waiting. The staff is very friendly. We have been there twice and would go back again.

What a fantastic experience! Centrally located charming hotel with impeccable service. Rooms are very clean, killer breakfast with the most welcoming and helpful staff. Get you Van Gogh museum tickets from the front desk to avoid the long lines.

Excellent location so close to Van Gogh and newly renovated Rijksmuseum, shops, cafes, supermarket and tram stops. Staff very friendly and helpful with delightful, youthful energy and enthusiasm! Our twin room was spacious and light with very good facilities and excellent block out drapes (there was a lot of noise initially from an outside playground / kindergarten when we arrived on a Friday but this abated after 6pm and holidays started on the Monday). Breakfast was excellent quality, range and quantity and the downstairs eating space was welcoming and inviting. We loved Amsterdam and this small, privately owned hotel (15 rooms) added to our enjoyment because of the location, the relaxed, yet efficient and friendly environment and the people working in it.

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking the kindergarten / open courtyard would be quieter

Hard to know where to start: physical location or people? OK - location first. From my room I could just see the Van Gogh Museum. We wanted to stay as close as possible to the Museumplein and the wonderful thing about Hotel Fita is that it's in a quiet street parallel to the busy street running along the edge of the Museumplein, a couple of minutes to the Concertgebouw. Because it's next to an infants / junior primary school, you have the feeling of a living city, with a hundred or more kids being dropped off by parents as you eat breakfast in the airy breakfast room. This juxtaposition of two of the world's most important galleries (Rijksmuseum and VGM) and a school whose playground is formed by putting up some very informal barriers across the street made me think: This is a real city that accommodates its own people and the people passing through like us. I loved that. Other things about hotel: only 15 rooms (I think); superb breakfast (anybody who misses the pancakes is nuts - apologies to those who can't eat pancakes). Now to people: Queenie and Roel and the other lovely young people at Hotel Fita are the kind of people who make travelling a joy. You think: Why have I left it so long to come back to the Netherlands? When can I come again? I'm already thinking about next year. Thanks, Roel - no wonder Hotel Fita is No 5 of 337 hotels in Amsterdam! I will have to book a long way ahead (and if my review makes that even more necessary, I will be very happy). LOVE YOU. THANK YOU. BEST WISHES. Brett Sydney Australia
