    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amstelzicht Amsterdam

    Great, Great, Great. A little Treasure........

    from

    Stayed here with two of my mates from Sunday 13-Wednesday 16 March 05. We had a tripple room which consisted of a double bed and a single. The hotel was fantastic and location was brillant. It's just off Dam Square and there is a great Irish pub beside it (great craic and sing songs!!) Sessions go on here all night!!!

    The bathroom was huge and the shower very good (great power....)

    The owner and staff of the hotel will do everything to make your stay comfortable (from extra pillows to sweets!)

    If you are getting a taxi to the hotel don't pay more than 40euro from the airport.

    The only downfall of the hotel are the stairs. They are quite narrow but are accessible (while not in a drunk state!). Ask for a room on the first floor, we did and got it no hassle.

    Would defiently recommend this hotel and will stay here again next year. You will enjoy your stay here...........

    Great Value

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Amstelzicht, Sunday-Thursday, 13-17 March 2005. On-site owners Robert and Ramon were extremely friendly and accommodating. There's no lift, and the stairway is very narrow and steep, but our room (facing the rear), although a bit sparse (no closets or drawers) was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The central location is excellent, right on the Amstel Canal and just yards from a tram stop. Add to all of this quite reasonable rates, and you'd have a hard time finding a better value. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommended.

    Decent little hotel.

    from

    Stayed here with my wife for 3 nights (Thurs-Sun) in mid Feb 2004, and it was a good place to stay.

    Had a perfectly fine room at the top of the hotel with lovely views looking out over the river. Steep stairs, but that's a feature of Amsterdam houses. The room was spacious and well furnished, and had a recently renovated en suite with shower. It's a small hotel - the taxi driver from airport hadn't heard of it, so take the full address with you.

    Good location, Dam square and most touristy areas are reachable on foot in 10 mins or so, and trams close for travelling further afield. It's not supposed to be the best of areas in Amsterdam, but we didn't see anything to be particularly concerned about. It's a friendly city! There was some noise from surrounding area at night/morning, but really only to be expected in a city. Rear-facing rooms probably better for this, but miss out on the great views!

    No complaints about the staff. Turned up quite late and were given friendly reception. Leaving the room key with reception when going out is perhaps a bit outdated, but not a serious bind. Didn't have breakfast at the hotel, so can't comment on that.

    For a short city break this hotel is a good value, reasonably central base to explore from. I would recommend it to others.

    (The same can't be said about flying BMI, after a 7 hour delay at Schipol with appaling customer service. Flight there was fine, but when things go wrong it's a different story.)

    Nightmare Management

    from

    While this sunless dungeon may technically qualify as a three star, don't expect any class with your room. The house rules are conservative (this is Amsterdam, right?)- expect to leave your key and ring the doorbell 24 hours a day. The owner is the worst- he epitomizes the inhospitality and self-centeredness of a tourist hotel that cares not for your comfort or repeat business. His unabashed anti-American attitude is both professionally and personally ignorant, and his staff seems frightened into submission. Considering the location of the hotel near the Rembrandtplein (what Amsterdamers consider to be the worst part of town), it is not suprising that this hotel is perfectly willing to take advantage of your vulnerabilities and your credit card imprint should you raise any complaint, as they did to me. Fortunately or not, you may receive better service and more respectful attention if you are a man, or traveling with a man. If you made the mistake I did by booking here, hope that at least during the night the blood will rish to your head from sleeping with your head downhill from your feet, and that you will wake up with no conscious memory of this place. You couldn't pay me to stay here again.

    Hello Travelers

    Hello Travelers,

    Robert & ramon have a new "Palace"

    wanted to let you know that our friends from the "Townhouse"B&B just bought a veautiful little palace nestled in the heart of amsterdam... when I called to make my resrevation, Robert Invited us to stay here. It was warm, clean, and of course just like in the Townhouse very personal service.

    In case you don't know it, it is Amstelzicht, located in the heart of Amsterdam, give them a call and tell Kathryn sent you!

    Rates are competitive, the staff and envirinment is wonderful!

    A good choice, and great value!

    from

    We stayed at the Amstelzicht for 3 nights from November 4th 2004. I was very pleased that all my careful deliberations and planning when choosing a hotel had paid off.

    The entrance was very clean and inviting, as were all areas of the hotel that i saw. The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming when we checked in, despite it being past 10pm!

    Our room was very large (room number 1) with double bed, sitting area, tv, minibar and clean and modern bathroom.

    Staff were helpful at all times, attending to any needs we had quickly and efficiently.

    We did not take breakfast (10 euros each) so i cannot comment on that.

    Only one thing i can warn you about is the fact that our room was ground floor, with the road outside, and a cafe bar with loud music to the side, so was a bit noisy into the early hours of the morning, so if you think this would bother you, ask for a room at the back of the hotel, and/or on a higher floor.

    Basically to sum up, I would describe the Hotel Amstelzicht as a small, friendly boutique/guesthouse hotel, without some of the "bigger" amenities of large chain hotels. But if you are looking for a clean,friendly,comfortable, affordable, central base(5-10 mins walk to red light district,15-20 mins walk to centraal station,right next to rembrandtplein) then do not hesitate to book this hotel.

    If you would like any other questions answered email me at cbarrett2004@hotmail.com

    Cheers!

    A lovingly tendered home from home in Amsterdam

    from

    Amsterdam - as always - is a hustle and bustle of bike riders, canals, museums, great shops and restaurants; what you crave to enjoy it all is a safe retreat.

    We found our little home from home after many a frustrating search over the years. Hotel Amstelzicht is a little haven in all the craziness, overlooking the River Amstel, just separated by a tiny street - and what may sound like a paid for advert is a personal and honest account:

    Up a few stairs, the light and clean corridor leading to the reception is already inviting and spotless. And (as we were to find out soon) no matter what the time of day and night is - you are welcomed by quietly humorous, gentle and caring young gentlemen. We instantly hoped we had finally arrived in Amsterdam.

    The rooms confirmed this: We saw two of twelve - again, we felt at home in a second, we could find all the usual amenities, everything worked, everything shone. And it was quiet during the (rest of the) night, which is a great asset. At the time of writing (October 2004), you pay 120 Euros at the back and 140 overlooking the Amstel, which at a *** rating is good value for money in Amsterdam.

    Breakfast (at 10 Euros p.p.) is served in the newly decorated dining room adjoining the reception area: cereals, juices, two sorts of bread, toasted on request, boiled eggs, coffee or tea. Everybody is gathered round one big table, which felt fine by us.

    The new and young proprietors, who took over in August 2004, seem to be in for a long run of quality and care beyond the call of duty. Long may they run, is what we say. - Hey, and book early.

    Excellent hotel with attentive owners

    from

    We were dragging our bags around looking for a hotel after a night in a not so nice one, saw a room available sign, and found an oasis. New owners very attentive, infomative and enthusiastic about their city, and committed to making their hotel a sucess. Room a good value at 105 euros compared to several other places we saw. Cleans rooms, clean uncluttered decor thruout. We stayed in Amsterdam longer that excepted because we liked the hotel so well.

    Large room, best location, friendly staff

    from

    Perfect place to stay when in amsterdam,

    very clean, lovely welcome during check in, good breakfast and the location is PERFECT ! I had only two days in Amsterdam and from the Amstelicht everything was within 10 minutes walk.

    I will be back!

    We loved it!

    from

    Me and my friends booked a triple room. We stayed 5 nights in total and everything was great. Small, traditional building overlooking a canal and very convenient as it is in a central location (however in a quiet neighbourhood) and everything is within walking distance. The room was very spacious and comfortable. There was daily room service keeping it clean and tidy. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Whenever we go back to Amsterdam we will definitely stay there again!

    ... it! We've had people call our hotel in Beijing to find directions, show us where to go, which bus to take, and although we didn't get far in mastering the language- communication is always possible! And a smile- goes a long way. The freedoms of many Chinese are restricted too and they have no access to our social media networks and Google. You do see a country trying to navigate with it's huge population and although there isn't much respect for queues or pushing in ...

    ... Paul wasn't very excited about having "Rice Bowls" for dinner but ended up having a great experience. We thought the appetizers were delicious. We had a colorful plate of oversized steamed banana leaves. Each leaf had a unique dish on it. One was crunchy codfish on a lemon grass skewer with an incredible Asian sauce. Another was lamb (Asian Sauce), shrimp (sriracha sauce) and pork (Coconut milk sauce). Our second course was a large banana leaf that was filled with steamed ...

    We watched a craftsman demonstrate how he was able to turn a block of poplar into a wooden shoe. It took about five minutes using tools that were created 75 years ago. There were interesting display cases showing many different styles of wooden shoes. A favorite of our group was a pair that looked ...
