“Great hotel in excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stayed for the last 2 nights of September and echo all the previous good reviews - stunning bedrooms, great breakfasts, good location and Christian is a perfect host - we particularly liked his help and advice in finding places to go/things to do that perhaps you don't always find in the commercial guides. The area is nice and quiet but fairly central and there are a couple of good local restaurants and several nearby bars.

This place has everything you need. Perfect location, modern spotlessly clean rooms, lovely breakfast but most of all Christian who runs the place a warm and friendly guy who makes you feel at home the moment you arrive. Nothing is too much trouble even down to helping with your sightseeing!

We stayed at the Townhouse Inn on 20th & 21st September 2013. What a place, there is nothing bad we can say about this place, it truly is faultless. Rooms are modern and spotless. They have all the mod cons (kettle / TV / fridge). The bed was so comfortable we slept very well. As for the host, Christian !! Exceptional host, very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and his breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. The location is as everyone describes - near to everything. Perfect is so so many ways, you would be a fool not to stay here.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the front which was large with great view over the canal. Still lovely and quie...

We stayed at the Townhouse-Inn for three nights. Christian our host was extremely helpful and friendly and made a lovely continental breakfast each morning. The room was modern and clean and the bed was very comfortable. It also had a large flatscreen tv, a fridge and free WiFi. The location of the b&b is fantastic, a short walk from the central station and the harbour. There are a number of great bars and restaurants immediately opposite the b&b which serve food for a variety of tastes and budgets. We hired bikes on our first day there and really enjoyed seeing the city in this way. The only challenge we faced as light sleepers was the noise from the road outside but this could be overcome by opting for a room facing away from the canal.

Location is in an excellent position, near to everything, as central station, tram and buses, canal tours, Dam, restaurants. Rooms are very confortable, everything is new, cool furnitures...Christian is a very nice and very cooperative person. It will be my first choice in future trip to Amsterdam. Stairs are the very typical dutch ones.

Room Tip: No real issue

We stayed at the Townhouse-Inn for two nights at the end of June 2013. Fantastic hotel, modern and clean.It overlooks a canal with a few local bars. Access to the city centre was easy by bus or a 15 min stroll. Christian the owner was fabulous host, very welcoming and very helpful, giving us ideas of places to visit and how to get there. He makes a fab breakfast for you each morning. You get to meet and chat with travellers from other countries over breakfast too. It is like staying with friends rather than the' Big' chain hotels.. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to overlook the canal.

We stayed at the TownHouse-Inn for three night in mid June 2013. We found it fairly easily after a brief walk from Amsterdam Central station and used the entry codes provided to us to get into the hotel and our room- no need for keys. The hotel is in a gloriously tall Amsterdam townhouse on a canal, and just across from a cool row of bars and cafes- perfectly situated for a late night drink. The location was brilliant, an easy walk into the centre of Amsterdam, but out of the hustle and bustle- perfect for us.

The room was lovingly put together with a massive, uber-comfortable bed, a little balcony and a well equipped bathroom. Chrisitian was a great host and provided a marvelous breakfast every morning and some really good travel tips about Amsterdam. One of the great things about this Inn is the shared breakfasts which give you an opportunity to talk with fellow travelers and swap hints and tips for the days to come.

Overall, strongly recommended. The Inn is put together with care and attention and guests are made to feel very welcome- more like they are staying at a friends than in a hotel.
