“A Real Gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2005

My husband and I recently returned from a seven night stay at the Hotel Van de Kasteleen in Amsterdam. This property is in a great location, close to the tram lines and near lots of restaurants and shopping. The rooms are small, as all European hotel rooms are, but the bed was big and comfortable and the bathroom was large and we had a great breakfast every morning. The owners are very warm and helpful. If we ever go back we'll definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the Van Kasteelen having read very positive reviews on Trip Advisor. And they certainly were right. This is a gem of a hotel, in a great location on a quiet street near all the museums and a short tram ride from Dam Square and the railway station. The proprietors are the friendliest you could meet and their hotel is spotless - I challenge you to find cleaner. The rooms are spacious by Amsterdam standards and very well equipped. A great breakfast was included in the €125 a night per room charge - we were even offered bacon and eggs! A small sunroom is equipped with some magazines for a quiet read and some fabulous orchids.

I would return without any hesistation.

Everything was just perfect during our four nights stay at this lovely hotel in Amsterdam. It seems to be a bit outside the city centre, but the museums are only a few hundred meters away. The tramlines run in both ends of the block, but the street itself is very quiet, almost without any traffic.
We booked through WorldBy, and confirmed directly to the hotel a couple of days prior to our arrival. The staff and service was excellent throughout our stay, the room was neat and clean, the elevator perfect after a long days walk. The breakfast had a very high class.
(A few tips within 500 meters from the hotel: 1. go early to the museums! 2. visit Albert Cuypmarkt for some street-shopping 3. Ther is a super Greek restaurant - "Kriti" at Roelof Hartplein.)
