Historical Traveler Reviews Agora Hotel Amsterdam
Great location, wonderful staff.
The Agora is a cozy hotel with warm, friendly, helpful staff. The location beats that of the major expensive chain hotels. We had a quiet room facing the courtyard, which had plenty of space for the extra bed we needed. The breakfasts are very nice. Staff helped us in many ways, including helping us figure out how to get to some unusual places for a tourist (like Six Flags Holland for my roller coaster buffs).
Charming og central
We spent 4 nights in hotel Agora from 15. - 18 april 2004 and were most satisfied with both the central location in Amsterdam and the most carming wiew over the Amstel canal right outside our windows. The stairs are a bit of a challenge but the rest were just as we hoped ore better. The breakfast is good and the staff nice and helpful. And they changed towels every day in a small but delicate bathroom. We want to go back soon, and will of course stay at hotel Agora if possible. From Heidi Tokle Poverud and 4 friends from Norway
Great Place to stay!!
This hotel was a great place to stay. When I return to Amsterdam I am sure that I will stay here again. Good rates..like other reviewers have said, the stairs are a pain, but the staff more than makes up for this. Breakfast included was more than enough to get me started on a wonderful day in Amsterdam. I will be sure to tell me friends if they go to AMS they have to stay here. Great location and access to anything you need.
Stayed May 24-31st. Good times!!!
First Class Stay at the Agora: 22-24 May 2004
We have just come back from a stay in Amsterdam at the Hotel Agora. We have nothing but praise for the hotel and consider it to represent excellent value for money. The room we stayed in was of a good size with a comfortable bed with spotlessly clean bed linen. The bathroom was also spotless, very well equipped and again of a reasonable size. However, being in a very old canal house it is very narrow and steep to reach the higher level rooms so this needs to be a consideration for those with walking difficulties. The breakfasts were huge comprising meats, cheese, eggs, cereals, toast, rolls, juice and coffee, and served in a lovely breakfast room full of flowers and with a view over a very pretty garden. We also found all the staff very friendly and extremely helpful and offered to hold our luggage on the last day without even being asked. The hotel is located on a nice quiet part of the Singel, but near to all the main attractions. We will definitely use this hotel again and happily recommend it.
Pleasant place, great location
Try to avoid the tiny attic room -- it's quite a haul and kind of claustrophobic. But the breakfasts are nice, the staff is very friendly, and the location simply can't be beat. (Oh, like a lot of Amsterdam hotels, the higher floors are probably not good for those who have trouble with stairs!)Dan
Not the cheapest in town, but probably worth it. Clean as a pin, perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, and good breakfasts included. Tram stop is 200 feet away. Be prepared to hump your luggage up winding stairs, as there is no lift, but this is probably necessary for a canal house hotel. Would stay there again without hesitation.
Best In Amsterdam!!
I have stayed at The Agora over six times.
The location is superb
The breakfast is fantastic
The canal rooms have great views
The owners are delightful and very helpful!!
As far as I am concerned it is the ONLY place to stay in Amsterdam
Hotel Agora has it all
We stayed at Hotel Agora twice in early April, for three days each. The staff was helpful and available, yet respected privacy. Agora was a quiet respite from touring. Not fancy, but comfortable and easy. They were happy to store some of our luggage while we took a 3-day side-trip to Germany. The private bath was modern with fixtures that were friendly to U.S. travelers (some hotels in Europe are a little more...adventurous.)
Hotel Agora's best feature is the location. It is right in the center of it all-- no more than a 20 or 30 minute stroll to just about any of the sights. Tram stop just a few meters down the street and grocer around the corner for snacks. The Floating Flower Market is across the street. Cross Singel and you're in the heart of Spui, home of Hoppe Cafe (try the bitterballen) and some great bars and coffeeshops (yes, THOSE coffeeshops-- Kamer was our favorite). Casa di David is also a great nearby Italian restaurant.
Will happily stay at Hotel Agora again!
A Pleasant Stay
I stayed at the Hotel Agora from April 22, 2003 until April 28, 2003. I had a very pleasant stay. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.The breakfast was very good but was exactly the same every day.I would definately recommend this hotel!
A Beautiful Meeting
My family and I in July 2001 choose to stopover in Holland on our way back home from a trip to Switzerland.
We had no idea how we would find it after the lovely time we spent in Switzerland.
But we never imagined that our stay especially at the Hotel Agora, Singel 426, 1017 AW, Amsterdam
would be so "beautiful" with the whole of the Hotel staff so careing and full of warmth.
I would like to send Warm Regards to all of them from Pakistan and I hope that all the same staff is still there so that they all get my message of thanks and hope I may be able to meet them again some day soon.
I would highly recommend Hotal Agora for those planning to stay in Amsterdam.
With Best Regards,

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, got its name when the river Amstel was dammed, thus Amsterdam. There are 1200 bridges over the canals, which forma semi-circle.

The very first thing I noticed about Amsterdam, besides the skunk problem, was the amount of bicycles there were. They had made sidewalks especially for walkers, bikers, and mopeds on both sides of the roads. There were also bike racks flooding the side of the streets that were all filled. The bus transit system was so good there that it almost made it not ...

Needless to say many of the accents we heard were Australian, which was a great opportunity for us to just have some quiet time and not be heard by anyone in case we were lumped with that lot.

It was really good to see them again last time I saw them was when I left Queensland a year and half before, was weird to think I use to seem them all the time! It was also surreal to think we were meeting up with them in Amsterdam after all this planning it just happened! With a decent night out talking and comparing travel experiences we parted ways and made plans to catch up the next day. ...
