Nice hotelPosted Oct 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nice hotel, lovely staff, handy for lots of tourist attractions, including the Riijsmuseum and the Heineken Experience, along with convenient boat tours. The area is well connected with transport so you do get a little tram noise etc as you would expect.

Excellent location for museums and canal ridesPosted Sep 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
I am so glad I booked this wonderful 28 room boutique-like hotel and it has an elevator. The building was built in 1906. It is family owned. Alex, co-owner said that his parents started the hotel in 1982. He joined the business in 2000. This hotel is spotless. The service is wonderful. Believe me, they aim to please. Breakfast is typical Dutch and is complimentary. There is also excellent and free WiFi with a communal computer if needed. My group played dominoes in room where there is a small bar and where breakfast is served. It was allowed. It was fun and we weren't bothering anyone. Rooms are small but everything you need is there. I appreciate the armoire with hanging space and also shelves. If your room is at the front of the building and your window is open, it can be noisy however, mostly during the day when people are usually out touring. No A/C however, the room is comfortable and there is window and transom that opens enough for fresh air. A couple blocks away are very nice restaurants. Also, many of the major museums are close by plus the canal is about 200 yards away. Large chain hotels can be very nice but I think that staying in a hotel like the Nicolaas Witsen adds to the trip experience. I look forward to staying at this hotel within the next couple of years with another group.

would highly recommendPosted May 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
As a group of 3 we found the room very comfortable, and appreciated the tea and coffee in the room. The staff were very helpful with directions and any queries we had. Breakfast was excellent. The bathroom was spotless and complementary toiletries were replaced as needed. Great value for money, would book this hotel again. Anyone wanting great food use Cafe Kale, just across the road, staff had recommended their salads and we were not disappointed. Close to the tram stop, location good.

Good hotel for the pricePosted May 2, 2013
Pros: Walking distance to almost everything.
Cons: Only one iron for the entire hotel. I had to go into the washroom to use it.
Not a bad hotel for the price. The staff was very friendly and more than willing to help. Breakfast wasn't anything special but it was free so I can't complain. I would definitely stay here again if I came to Amsterdam.

Convenient, but nothing to write home aboutPosted Dec 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was ok for a late arrival and a busy day in Amsterdam, centrally located and at the same time quiet, but the hotel itself was nothing special. The room was rather basic, no effort to please the eye or to spoil the visitor, and the bathroom was so small that it was uncomfortable. The breakfast was quite nice, but the apples were apparently unwashed.

Nice 3 star EU hotelPosted Sep 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
Close to Center City and major canals, Walking distance to good resturants. Like many small hotels room was tiny but comfortable. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Watch for major events in area because the prices go through the roof at all hotels. I got caught staying during the IBC conference and paid a hefty per night rate.
Close to National Museum and Van Gougn Museum.Posted Jul 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
A pretty good experience. The hotel manager tried to make our stay a comfortable one and it was very impressed. Easy access to museums and sightseeing boats.

Don't forget FebrezePosted Nov 26, 2011
I stayed in a room with a single bed, and the room was about the size of a walk in closest. The building smelled as if someone had been chain smoking for months on end. The building was in terrible need of a remodel. Although, The bathroom was recently remodeled. For the price I paid per night, I was extremely dissatisfied. You are better of finding a better hotel that is further out from the canal loop and taking a train. I was able to find nicer hotels right in downtown for a cheaper price after I already arrived. However, the breakfast and internet service were decent. The room was also cleaned well (Thanks room service).
