I stayed in the Vermeer room for 4 nights, leaving yesterday.
The room was clean and basic with fabulous views out to the Singel. The bathroom was fine. I didn't need much more as we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel apart from sleeping.
Breakfast was superb. Eggs were cooked from scratch when you showed up at the table, so no dark ring round the yolk. Good coffee, freshly brewed in a cafetiere. You also get a good mature gouda, a baguette and a crumpet.
The location is excellent. Near all the sights, bars and restaurants and right next to the Jordaan.
I paid €100 for a twin but this was almost half the price of some 2 and 3 star accommodation nearby. I'm still completely flabbergasted as to why Amsterdam is the most expensive city in Europe for tourist accommodation. It wasn't always as prohibitively priced.
If you're looking for no frills accommodation that is almost good value then you could do a lot worse than stay at the Brouwer.More
