Reviewed April 28, 2009

We stayed at the Fita on April 7th 2009 en route to a river cruise. It was an excellent way to start our trip: friendly staff, great rooms, an introduction to Amsterdam architecture, and superb location a block from the Museumplein. Our only regret was leaving.

At the enjoyable breakfast, we discovered that their clientelle often had a history of returning to the hotel and we can see why.

Highly recommended, but please don't fill it when we hope to return :).

If you are looking for a charming, quiet, extremely clean, friendly, and conveniently located hotel in Amsterdam, then The Hotel Fita is for you! Loes and Hans, the owners, were delightful, helpful and welcoming. The hotel is located near several tram stops and around the corner from the Van Gogh and Rijskmuseum. Our room was spacious and included a terrace and surprisingly spacious bathroom (rubber ducky included). Breakfasts were included and were delicious, especially the pancakes prepared by Hans. I highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone.

We stayed at the Hotel Fita on a friend’s recommendation. We were in Amsterdam for a few days before getting on a cruise ship and wanted to sty someplace that was close to the museums, this hotel was prefect! The owners could not have been more gracious. During our stay one of the gentlemen had to go to the hospital, in fact he had to cancel the cruise due to unexpected health problems but Hans was there to help with those arrangements as well

We will be going back to Amsterdam next year (2010) and are planning on stating at the Hotel Fita.

We just returned from our first trip to Europe, we chose the Hotel Fita due to the reviews on Trip Advisor. The location is lovely quite at night, close to tram, Van Gogh, Rijkmuseum, very easy to walk places, and very safe. The room was clean and beds comfortable, we had a large bathroom. The owners Hans & Loes treat you like longtime friends, very helpful with directions, advise on restaurants, where to buy tram tickets. They offer to do laundry upon arrival, phone calls to the states were no charge. The breakfast Hans serves was wonderful, we always remember the pancakes with humor! We hope to return someday soon. Highly recommend it.

We just got home from a long trip in Europe and our favourite hotel was Hotel Fita in Amsterdam. First of all, if you love art the location is perfect - the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum are about two blocks away. As well, it is close to all othe amenities and a few minutes walk to the centre of Amsterdam. The rooms are quiet, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was great, especially if you like pancakes. Hans and Loes, the proprietors are so nice and create such a relaxed, personable atmosphere where everyone feels special. We had trouble printing our ticket for a special exhibit of Van Gogh and they took the time and trouble to help us print it on their computer, even e-mailing the museum for advice. Now, that's service. Fun and friendly, I highly recommend it.

Located just steps from the van Gogh and Rijks museums, the hotel offers a great location and easy transportation to other parts of the city and surrounding towns. Loes and Hans, the owneres, are truly interested in making your visit to this interesting city the best possible experience. When you visit a city where you don't know the language and are unsure of how to get around, these two great people key in on what you want to see and do and suggest sites and modes of transportation to save you time and money. Hans makes breakfast delightful with his wit and dry humor and Loes is gracious, charming, and helpful with her inciteful suggestions. We (two women over 50 from the U.S.) stayed a week and had the best experience we could have hoped for. We will be back!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived with freshly squeezed orange juice and sparkling wine. The staff were very friendly and breakfast time was very relaxed with Hans keeping everyone amused in between serving delicious pancakes. The hotel was around the corner from the Van Gogh museum and not too far from the main shopping area. We were able to fast-track entry into both the museums and Anne Frank's House because the hotel had Wi-Fi access with printer, allowing us to print tickets off in advance. The children loved their spacious room and enjoyed the general atmosphere of the hotel. We look forward to staying at this hotel again and would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Amsterdam
