Historical Traveler Reviews Tourist Inn Amsterdam
Clean, basic, friendly, cheap
If you're in Amsterdam and don't plan to spend much time in your room, which is pretty functional, this makes an excellent base, convenient for the canal district, Jordaan, and trams. Big breakfast means you don't need to eat all day! Good VFM !
i was also found by a staff member of brian... great place! super friends/ funny english staff. Great eggs in the morning! I will go again!
Couldn't have asked for anything more...
No sooner did we get off the train we found a place to stay. A staff member of Hotel Brian found us and showed us the hotel. It was clean and in a great part of the city. No curfew and their vending machine has Heineken for 1 euro! Free breakfast in the morning was nice... the shared facilities were clean but I suppose they could have been cleaner. They also have towels and free internet. For 20 euros a night, you cannot beat Hotel Brian.
Go there only if you don't have any other choice
If you dont have any other choice and you are in desperation ofsearching ,just go there but only for one night.The rooms are horrible for the money they want. AVOID to stay there,please!
Quality Digs, great!
me and 2 companions stayed at this hotel from 04/05/03 till 07/05/03 and all of us were as pleased as punch!I will definatly recommend and be using this hotel again.The only downside, and it is such a small one, is that our triple room was at the very top of the building with quite steep stairs. and when your stoned it can be a bit tricky! :)the Staff were amazing and so helpful. Blinding.
You must be kidding...
I can't believe some of the review for this place! Were they written by the staff?! When we stayed here it was filled with dodgy characters in the 'lobby', the shared bathroom facilities were terrible and grubby and the lock on the door barely worked. We stayed one night, and we were gone!
More than I expected
I really couldn't imagine there being a better hostel for the money. Firstly, the location is excellent (on a quiet canal 5 minutes from central station). The staff was friendly and fixed us a great breakfast every morning. Free internet and sat TV were also bonuses after along day of running around amsterdam. The rooms are small but with the location being so good, we didn't spend much time in our room anyway.
Good location, friendly staff
Looking for a place outside the red light district we found this hotel. rooms were clean and staff great, also other guests made the stay better than expected
Calling me back...
I visited in 2000, stayed a couple of nights. This place is a mere 20 minutes walking from Central Station. It's right along one of the canals, we even had a canal-view room. The people there were laid back, down to earth folks. Everything was clean and lovely. The common room on the main level is quite entertaining. :)I left a pair of shoes there I'd bought new before my trip. They didn't really fit right. Did you get them?
More than full!
Stayed their a couple of years ago and am going to go back very soon. Clean and tidy, easy going staff and legendary breakfasts if you can get up prior to 10 am. NO hassles and a good location make staying in hotel brian most pleasant and whats more, like the budgie its cheap. Oh and they got satalite tv!

... it to, we were all very impressed with the accommodation: a separate bedroom for mom & dad, large bathroom with cabinets and shelves (I'm VERY happy about this), Jacuzzi bath, shower, a dining table and chairs, living room with two foldout couches, TV, and best of all, a private patio with table, chairs, deck chairs, and a hot tub! We all felt like we won the lottery. This would be the first place that we spent more than 6 nights, and my first plan was ...
... a short tram ride, we returned to our room and took another dinner recommendation from Holger. This time an Indonesian restaurant called "Bleuw" was the recommendation. The restaurant was a mere 2 blocks away and it was pretty easy to find as "bleuw" means the color "blue" in Dutch. In an attempt to confuse tourists who speak Dutch (ha-ha not us) the restaurant was painted mostly red! Very tricky, but not nearly enough to foil the Shepherds. Actually we had attempted to walk in ...
... we went across the road to this popular sports bar (10 jäger shots for 10 euros!) with the aim of asking this waitress we'd semi befriended where good clubs were. She recommended the same area, but while we were sitting we met these two nice guys, Marty and Trevor from Boston (who were hitting on two girls from Minnesota). They'd gotten lost on a pub crawl and after a long convo and many selfies (but no Facebook exchange as me and ...
... of a novel experience for them than it was for me, because they seemed to have trouble coming to terms with the fact they were speaking to an Australian. They keeps suggesting I was lying and constantly asked to prove I was an Australian, which wasn't hard as I am Australian and obviously had a passport. But the one who turned 18 explained that they don't get tourists so it was hard for them to comprehend why or for them to even understand why I was there. I explained why and ...
