My husband and I stayed at Hotel Brouwer in August 2011. Our experience was amazing! The rooms were spotless and lovely. The breakfast was delightful, cheese, jam, eggs, assortment of bread, coffee/tea and orange juice. Staff and owners were helpful and kind. The price was amazing, especially when compared to other B&B's. Hotel Brouwer was not top luxury but it is comfortable, historic and centrally placed to all tourist areas. When we return to Amsterdam, we will absolutely stay here and nowhere else.

A few notes for those who are new to Amsterdam. Yes, Hotel Brouwer is located next door and near a few sex work residences (red light) but don't worry, the ladies won't bite and were quite sweet. Though located on the corner of the Singel canal, we found it quiet at night except for the Tuesday AM trash pick up.

Room Tip: The Rembrandt room! A corner room on the 1st floor. Beautiful views and windows on two sides.

Hi we stayed in this hotel recently, my husband was a bit dubvious walking down to it - we had our first sight of the ladies working in the windows.
The hotel is so central it is literally a ten min walk from central train station, dam square and Anne Franks house. The breakfast was lovely - little touches like warm bread definately added to it, the room was lovely over looking a canal.
The the pros it would not be an true review if i didn't mention the cons...
the lift is tiny! so small i used it once then took the stairs after that. All 57 of them! we counted, also if you are a light sleeper prob not the best place for you, the outside street starts coming alive early in the morning and although the windows are charming they are not great at keeping the noise out!
All in all a lovely hotel so different from a big souless generic hotel,

While I would agree that the location of this hotel is good, travellers should be aware that this is a one-star hotel. We were unaware of this when we booked it and the room tells the story. We were booked in the Vermeer room and I imagine that other than the bathroom, nothing in the room has changed since Vermeer was alive. It is small, there is no comfortable place to sit, only a desk chair. Oh yes, there is a tiny TV. On the plus side, the staff is very helpful and the facility is clean and there is free internet. There are about 4 red lights on the block, one next door but that really didn't bother us although it may offend some. It is located on a busy street and is quite noisy during sleeping hours.
We did find a good restaurant with excellent food and very reasonable prices that is very close to the hotel called Seasons.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Brouwer. The staff was excellent, all English speaking. Excellent location, easy walking distance from Amsterdam Central train station. Close to several street car lines. Our only issue was noise from the street overnight, cars and people talking. Otherwise, a lovely stay, and we would stay there again if we're back in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We liked the Vermeer room.

I was not disappointed on my return to this delightful hotel in a 17th century canal house. The accommodation is simple but spotlessly clean.Towels changed and rooms cleaned daily. Breakfast ...an assortment of breads, boiled egg, cheese and jam and served in the reception area overlooking the canal.It is excellent value for money, especially as the rooms have en suite facilities. Importantly it is situated away from the garish and somewhat tacky delights of the more touristy areas around the Central Station and the red light district. A great choice if you want to get a feel of historical Amsterdam and avoid a corporate hotel, or some kind of back - packing experience in one of the cheaper hotels. This hotel is smoke free. Perhaps not for anybody with mobility problems as the stairs are quite tricky and the lift a rather cramped, clunky one person experience.
It appears to be a family run business and the hoteliers and the staff give excellent advice about local restaurants, tram routes etc.They can also arrange a taxi to the airport at a very reasonable price. Good choice if you don't want lots of frills.
