“Hoksbergen is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This hotel will have all the basics you need but not much more, but that's fine, you're there to see Amsterdam and it's a nice central location and clean and secure. The staff were VERY helpful and answered all of our questions about getting around town. They have free wifi and a decent breakfast included. Beware that all Amsterdam canal houses have the steepest stairs that you've ever seen.

This hotel was definitely more than I expected! The staff was so friendly, even giving us a map and circling must-see attractions, giving us directions, and even printing off our train tickets! Very close to Dam Square. The rooms are small, but what do expect from an old canal house! It was definitely worth the money and we'll come back next time we visit Amsterdam!

We rented an apartment in the neighborhood of Hotel Hoksbergen that was managed by the hotel. It was a little noisy at night, but it is Amsterdam after all. The apartment was perfect for 4 with a bathroom, sitting area, and kitchen. It was perfect for exploring the city. The desk person was very, very helpful in any questions we had for him. We couldn't get into the apartment until 2pm, but we were able to store our luggage and go about the city.

Great hotel! Staff were very helpful, breakfast was great, and great location. Stairs are very steep. Canal was closed just past the hotel while they were redoing a bridge. Great Greek restaurant a couple doors down (best baklava ever).

Nice, little place close to Dam square. Our room was on 3rd floor, had to climb up the narrow and steep stairs, but i guess its like this throughout amsterdam. Room was clean, facing the canal. Beds were comfortable. However the en-suite bathroom was very very small!!!
Nice breakfast and the staff was very helpful.
Its at walking distance from dam square, which is very convenient.
Overall decent little place, considering its location.

we stayed there for 1 night, its a small clean, well located hotel...
the staff is also nice....

as everybody else mentioned - the staircase is scary !!..... and after those visits to coffeeshops and bars .. u will find it tough to climb those small slabs fitted on a vertical wall...

the room we were in was a tiny one ... the bathroom was the smallest i have ever seen... clean though !
