Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

A group of four of us stayed during a busy conference weekend so we had trouble finding a room anywhere in the city. Luckily this place had room. It was expensive due to the conference but really that is just supply and demand. We were thrilled with our room which was in a different building and on the ground level. Yes there was noise as people moved around above us or on stairs but I would expect that. It also wasnt that bad or constant. The hotel employees were very friendly and even left us a bottle of Prosecco to enjoy. Location was perfect to walk anywhere. You can also take the free nearby boat shuttle to Heineken! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay again if in town.

Thank you for reviewing Hotel Amstelzicht at Tripadvisor, this is very important for us. We are happy to ready you had a good time at the hotel, and specially at the Quad room, the quad rooms are located in the annex building, and are very comfortable for 4 persons staying together and looking for a reasonable price to pay. I think the best thing about this rooms are that they are basically two double rooms connected with the bathroom between them, which gives a lot of privacy to all the guest, and makes it also comfortable for two couples, or a family with two kids.
September is always a busy months with many congresses, and indeed are we fully booked most of the time, next year to avoid this month, and visit us for example in august ore October.
Ones again thank you, and hope to welcome you again one day!

regards, Robert

We were 4 people looking for a cheap option for one night in Amsterdam. Location was important for us and this hotel was right in the mix, being on the water right behind Rembrandts Square.
We took an apartment which comfortably fit all 4 of us and the space was clean, quirky and very reasonably priced.
The best thing about us was the extremely friendly and helpful staff who were able to pander to our every request.

I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Amsterdam, particularly young travelers...

Room Tip: Ask for Apartment 227 if you're a group of 4 friends wanting a cheap place to share.

This hotel is a good option when you are in Amsterdam. The hotel has a good quailty, just some minutes to og to centrum.
We were three friends who stayed there for one night, we are all students and do not have so much money, the price of the night was quite cheap compared to the hotelroom and service we got, we even got to have our dog with us.The crew was very nice and gave us great help with different information we needed.

Very cheap hotel in a very central location right on the Amstel Canal. Walk to almost all central attractions in this City. Rijks Museum, just behind Rembrandts Square with lots of restaurants, bars etc....we walked to Central Station. It is a very historic Hotel built in 1659, but refurbished and still comfortable......but not 5 star. Great value for money!

Room Tip: Noise from disco behind and Irish pub next door but didn't affect us!

Dear Guest, thank you for leaving a review on TripAdvisor. What a beautiful title ‘Great location for travellers’

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Hotel Amstelzicht and Amsterdam. Thank you for uploading a beautiful picture from the front of Hotel Amstelzicht.

Hotel Amstelzicht is in a monumental house dating back from 1659. With more than 350 years of history and is totally renovated between January and March 2012. It is nice to read that you experienced the monumental house as comfortable.

As you write, the hotel is indeed located in the central of Amsterdam. Within walking distance of the well-known sightseeing’s and attractions. As Rembrand square, Leidse square, Kalvertoren, Rembrandt house, Hermitage.. The Reception can inform you about all the sightseeing’s and attractions in Amsterdam, and provide you of a city map, tour information and entrée tickets.
If you prefer not to walk (10-15 minutes) you can always consider to make use of the public transport.

We hope to be able to welcome you again in the near feature. To still enjoy a bit of hotel Amstelzicht, like us on Facebook for daily posts.

We wanted a hotel with character and this was perfect. We were on the top floor facing the canal with a fantastic view. Yes, the stairs are steep but that was part of being in this lovely old building! Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped and the bed was great.

They don't do breakfast but we followed their recommendation and went to a friendly cafe just down the road which does a very tasty breakfast at a discount for the hotel's guests.

We loved the liveliness of the canal outside - a Polish film crew were filming on houseboats while we were there - but bear in mind this slightly leaning hotel and its equally crooked neighbours are on the boat tour itinerary so if you want 24 hr peace and quiet this may not be right for you. However, after dark things are quiet and we slept well with the windows open

Dear Guest, we thank you for sharing your experience in hotel Amstelzicht on tripadvisor with other travelers.

It is of great pleasure to read that hotel Amstelzicht met to your expectations. The hotel has indeed a character, being a monumental house dating back from 1659, with more than 350 years of history! The suite room with canal view that you mention has the additional facilities; Nespresso Machine, Bathropes, TRX Suspension Trainer (on request), plus all the standard amenities as a Minibar, I Phone Docking System, two telephones, multi-level working area, fauteuil, coffee and tea facilities, flat TV, free WIFI and a private bathroom. And a romantic atmosphere with a breath taking 180 degree view of the Amsterdam canals and scenery.

A full breakfast special is offered for our guests at Brug 34, located 75 meters from the hotel in the ‘Utrechtsestraat’

Did you know that hotel Amstelzicht is located in one of the so-called "three dancing houses" That is the reason that tourists on a canal cruise usually take pictures and admire the building. Of course they cannot look inside the rooms. We are pleased that even though the crowds in the city you’ve had a good night sleep with the windows open.

Stayed at his warm hotel a weekend with my partner. The location is just amazing, right in the heart of buzzing Amsterdam. The rooms are well decorated and well-kept. Nice service is the valet-parking, so you can get your car get parked out of the trafficed center and retake it when you're leaving. We had a wonderful time at this cosy place. Just one remark: we were quite unlucky to encounter both at check-in and at check-out staffmembers that were not well-trained. Getting us in and out our pre-booked and -paid room was half-an-hour of hassle, which should not be the case. So a tip for the management: spend more time on training the staff and do not put younf unexperienced staff there on the spot, as the first and last impressions of your great place get disturbed by hese bad experiences.

Dear Guest, thank you for leaving a review on Tripadvisor.

The location of Hotel Amstelzicht is indeed right in the heart of Amsterdam. Among others near the Rembrandt square, Flower Market, Konings square and Kalver street. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed the room, decoration and maintenance. Parking in Amsterdam is very expensive to provide our guests with the best choice of parking we recommend the Hotel parking. Hotel parking is a valet parking for hotel guests and business drivers for a long time. Their car parking is in the center of Amsterdam. They pick up your car at the hotel, park it in its own secure grounds and bring him back at the appointed time. We are sorry for the experience you have had regarding the reception staff, we take your complaint serious and we will pay attention to this for improvement.

We hope to welcome you again in the near future.

Great location. Great layout of the rooms. We had a quadrupel room, for two kids and two adults. The kids hade their own room with bunk beds and we had a separate bedroom. Although it looked more like an apartment than a hotel room, I was surprised that they came and cleaned every day.

Now to the not so great. The shower doors were broken. When I complained, they came with a temporary solution, which I was OK with. When I opened the fridge to the minibar, the freezer door came falling out. I just seemed like the place was falling apart every here and there.

But it was a good deal and we were happy. No breakfast included.

I should say that the hotel has four seperate buildings and maybe the other rooms were different.
