Reviewed May 14, 2007

This is a 16 room hotel on a quiet street in the museum district. It is run by a friendly couple, Hans and Loes de Rapper. The location is convenient for both walkers and those using public transportation. Energetic travelers with not too much luggage can get a tram (2 or 5) outside the train station and be at the hotel within about 10 minutes. Too far to walk with any luggage. The tram will deposit you within one block of the hotel (at the stop just opposite the Van Gogh museum). Taxi's are available, but pricey.
Our room was up two flights of fairly steep stairs, typical of other hotels in Europe. A lift is available. The room was clean and very adequate. Not too small. Comfortable bed. The bath was modern and well equipped (hair dryer, soap dispenser, etc.) The breakfast buffet, included in the room rate, was excellent. This hotel was chosen after much research on this and other websites, both for its reasonable rate and location. We would definitely stay here again. An added bonus: discount tickets to some attractions are available at the hotel.

This is a gem of a hotel, clean and friendly and the location is ideal for both the Museums and the Centre of Amsterdam.
Loes, Hans and the staff were always happy to help with any questions. and provide a great breakfast to start the day.

Get your Museum tickets from the hotel and as well as the discount you don't have to queue to get in.

We would not hesitate to return and recommend the this hotel

Stayed 6 nights last April over Queen's day. Room was comfortably clean, hotel location was perfect, and breakfast was delicious. Added to that is the free phone call to the US and internet access to check your email. Hans, Loes and staff are wonderful hosts. Will definitely come back to Amsterdam and stay at Hotel Fita.

Quiet situation in the "Museum District", with easy access to public transport, Vondel Park, shopping area etc. with lots of very good restaurants, bars, brown cafes within a few minutes walk. Friendly staff, happy to give advice & information. Hans has a good sense of humour, in the Basil Fawlty style! & cooks a good breakfast. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms have everything you could want; there's free internet access, which is useful if you want info on local attractions, train times, etc & free 'phone calls - again useful to confirm local arrangements. Two middle-aged English couples would highly reommend this hotel.

Hotel Fita is a respite from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. The smoke free environment is very pleasant.

A comforting feature is the free long distance capability from one's room. It definitely beats the pay phone at the train station with the calling card that sometimes works.

The room we stayed in (14) was clean, comfortable and large. Even the bathroom was big.

The location is excellent; a 2 minute walk to the Van Gogh Museum, a 4 minute walk to the RIjks Museum and the tram. I would definitely return to the Hotel Fita if I return to Amsterdam.

We stayed at Hotel Fita for 4 nights over the Queens Day weekend from April 28 to May 2 with our two children and my husbands' parents. The hotel's location is perfect, only one street over from the Van Gogh Museum. It remained remarkably quiet and peaceful even as the Queens Day celebration raged on over behind the Van Gogh Museum. That was a nice treat since we were not joining in the late night partying. The rooms were spacious and clean, the beds comfortable, and breakfast was very nice also. I agree with a former review that Hans does make the best scrambled eggs! We also liked the free internet access at the computer by the breakfast room. Hans gave us many tips for enjoying Queens Day with the children and suggestions for activities such as a concert at the Concertgebouw for my in-laws. Also, the Heineken Experience was within walking distance and was fun for all of us. We will definitely stay at Hotel Fita again if we ever return to Amsterdam. Thanks for a memorable stay in Amsterdam!

We stayed four nights at Hotel Fita in early May and were delighted. Hans and the entire staff were very friendly and helpful. Free calls to the USA is a definite plus. Location by the two main museums in Amsterdam and proximity to trams is ideal. Nice quiet street and really nice clean rooms. Breakfast was very good with fresh OJ a really nice feature. Would definitely stay there again if we were in Amsterdam.
