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!

... all, I could say the first night was a definite success...and quite hazy at that.
March 30th, 2014
Day numero dos of Amsterdam rolls around and considering how late we got back the night before, we were definitely not at 100% but partied on. So today we decided to let it all go easily, a very laissez fair attitude for the day. Stop numero uno was the "I amsterdam" sign near Rembrandtplein.
Afterward we took a nice long lunch at ...
... some of the Yorkshire Dales. Off through the Lake District which was chock full of thousands of tourists in between beautiful scenery to Penrith. we visited A part of Hadrians Wall at the Chester Fort which was part of the wall and is not near Chester! It is one of the places that has been unearthed and is huge. There is a museum there which houses all the artifacts dug up from there and nearby and reveals just how much pagan worship of various gods was integral in ...
For two whole years they lived like this and Anne kept a diary every day writing down her thoughts and feelings and anxiously waiting for a day when they could once again breathe fresh air and be normal again. She was just 13 when they went into hiding and 15 when the whole family were found by the Nazis following an anonymous tip off. She died in a concentration camp, three months after her sister and only one month before ...
... at a pizzeria before heading to the Anna Frank House museum. The house was awesome. I'm so glad I went..... I really must read the book now, but the photos that were up though out the house and the rooms of the annex that Anne, her family and 4other people lived was also incredible to see. The windows are still block out and the lighting in all the rooms is very dim. I would have been very hard to stay ...
