Excellent hotel near museum area and easy to access other attractions on Amsterdam. Excellent breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. Room spotless and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Would stay there again.

Good location

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Found it to be a good location as it wasn't in a noisy area but was a short walk from Rembrantplein and the Museum Quarter. Breakfast was good but room was a little dirty (cobwebs).

Great location for museums, but can get noisy

Great little hotel. Very well maintained, with a very good breakfast (would be excellent if yogurt was offerered...). 5-minute walk from the three main museums. Friendly staff. Only negative point: you can hear everything that is going on in adjacent rooms.

Everything great except the noise

Walking distance to the museums with great restaurants close by. Tram stop conveniently close and only two stops from the metro. The only problem is that the walls are paper thin so don't expect a lie-in

Small and narrow but good

This hotel offers a central location and easy access to bicycles, trams and busses. Walking distance to most things including work for me. Friendly staff and nice breakfast. Quiet side street makes a difference.

Great hotel with all the basics done very well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. For me it was a nice bit of comfort to come back after an evening out. Good for the money.

Good location

We enjoyed our stay. Our room was small but satisfactory. Staff was very friendly. With only 28 rooms the people at the front desk knew us by the end of our 3-day stay. This is not a fancy 5-star hotel but is perfectly suitable for more modest budgets.

Nice hotel

Posted 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 rides

Posted 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 recommend

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.
