“Shabby and overpriced”
Reviewed January 19, 2004

We paid 140 euros a night for a grubby room that hadn't been decorated since the 60's. The bed was small and unconfortable. The shower was very basic (i.e. stand in a bath - that didn't work). The breakfast was also very average.

The only plus side was the staff were quite friendly.

My advice would be that a far better Hotel can found for the prices they charge.

We spent 10 days in Amsterdam at the Wiechmann. The location is excellent, a short walk to the museums, a little longer short walk to the city center. The room was very clean and well equipped. The staff is extremely friendly.

Stayed there 7 times now at the Wiechmann, and at several other hotels and BB's in the Dam, for value for money etc you can't beat the Wiechmann, great family run smallish hotel, staff etc are superb, the positioning is fantastic, 10 mins walk to the Dam square, along the Ronkin etc, just round the corner from the Anne Frank house. Continental breakfast is fantastic, again, all staff very helpful and know everything about the surrounding area. Infact i'm back there the weekend 21st nov 2003.

Just got back from Amsterdam-first time. Grrrrreat city. Found this hotel on search of the internet and supportive info from Frommer's and Conscierge. The location on Prinsengracht (Prince's Canal) was wonderful, especially since we opted for a canal facing room, which worked out spectacularly. The whole city was an easy walk or occasionally a close tram ride away.We could enjoy the experience of being on a city street, but not just Downtown, seeing bicycles and strolling and working people by the hundreds go by our place every day, even during the short times we were at the hotel. Bye the bye, we're in our 60's with average mobility and found this worked well for us.
