“like staying with old friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2009

We have just returned from a long weekend staying at this unique and wonderful little Hotel. Location is fantastic, beds and pillows very comfy! Can't think of anywhere else we have ever stayed where everything was so perfect. Well done Rachael and Pepjin for getting everything so right, You can walk to Central station easily from here and everywhere our hosts suggested we eat was superb. Picked this hotel from other reviews and we suggest you do the same, you won't be dissapointed!

I traveled extensively in Europe in August/Septembrr 2009 and used Amsterdam as a base. I stayed at Misc EatSleepDrink twice during my travels after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It is a small hotel in a converted canal house with 6 rooms. Location was great and the owners very helpful in all respects. I would stay here again and I highly recommend it.

The other reviews cover it well. Misc eatdrinksleep is a lovely, charming place in a great location run by nice, helpful people. The rooms are very comfortable, bright, and imaginatively decorated, without the decor taking over. Having stayed in too many hotels with tripwired mini-bars, it was a treat to have a little fridge stocked with complimentary non-alcoholic drinks and snacks (free!) that was replenished every day. We greatly appreciated Rachel and Pepijn's hospitality and their good breakfasts. While we're on the subject of food, we loved the herring and other seafood sandwiches sold by street vendors. Pepijn recommended Bird for reasonably priced, yummy Thai food, and we ate there twice, once in the restaurant and once in the snack bar across the street. We continue to have great success using TripAdvisor. We would never have found misc eatdrinksleep without it.

Hotel Misc is unique and probably the reason we had the best vacation ever. Thanks to Rachel and Pepijn we had everything we needed and the guidance to have a wonderful stay in Amsterdam. These great people went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I have to agree with all the good reviews on this site and want to say we found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The bed was extremely comfortable and my husband said he felt like he was sleeping in a cloud. The mini fridge and coffee machine were great extras. The breakfast was great and a wonderful way to start the day in Amsterdam. I have never written a review of a hotel before, but wanted to put my two cents in and let people know what a great place this is. We stayed in a canal view room and were very comfortable. There is street noise with the window open, but with the window closed we didn't hear a thing. We also loved the white noise machine and ceiling fan. When we mentioned the noise to Rachel she offered to switch us to a garden view room. We didn't want to move however and had a great stay and slept quite well. The location is excellent and we walked everywhere. I could not give a place a better review. It is just a great place and I can't wait until we can go back again and bring some friends.

We found this place using TA, and once again it did not disappoint! This little B&B is great! The Rachael and Pepijn are genuine people. They make you feel very comfortable and welcome. The location was the best part. Minutes to anthinig you want. We loved going for a late night walk through the red light district, great people watching. Then when you have had enough your room is just around the corner.

The stocked fridge is a nice touch as well. Great for those late night munchies :) Breakfast was yum. Our last day there we had an early flight, so upon returning to our room on our last night we found a cute spread of bread and cheese and hard boiled eggs for our early departure.

We stayed for 5 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer. Amsterdam is a great city, with so much to see. I would definately stay here again next time. Great people, great location, great room, great breakfast. Book it....you will love it :)

P.S there is a chinese massage just a couple of doors down. It is totally professional, and open until 11 pm. After a long day of walking ( and trust me you will be be doing LOTS of walking) it was so nice to get a couples massage and then stumble back to our room which was 1 minute away.

We highly recommend this lovely boutique hotel with the neat theme rooms and fantastic breakfasts! The location is perfect - walking distance from the train station and to the Dam Square. Rachel and Pipijn were most accomodating and kept out luggage until our room was ready for us to check in. We stayed in the The Desgn room facing the canal. It was very clean and the bed was comfy. The mini fridge was well stocked with drinks and snacks that were compliments of the hotel. Our friends stayed next door in the Wonders room. A very beautiful room with Indian - Asian decor.
Our Desgn room was al white with a more modern effect. Each floor of the hotel has two rooms. Our two rooms were in the first floor - one flight of stairs. Each morning we had a delicious breakfast prepared by Rachel including fresh squeezed orange juice with bacon, eggs, great cheeses, toast, fresh fruit and coffee. It was truly a meal that set us up for the day! Thank you Rachel! Dont forget to get directions from Rachel and Pippijn for the Flea Market which is only a few blocks away. It is near the Rembrant House whcih is also a must! The location of the Misc offers plenty of restuarants and bars directly outside the door and down the streets. You will enjoy your stay at Misc - we certainly did and hope to return.

What a fabulous time we had in Amsterdam and misc eatdrinksleep served as a perfect base. It's like having your own place with friends always available. You sit in the kitchen for breakfast, talk to fellow guests, and get idea's for the day's adventure. No request we had was too much. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend this hotel.
