Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Brouwer Amsterdam
A great hotel at any price
Excellent hotel. Clean, cozy, comfortable rooms in a good location at an unbeatable price. The owner is very friendly and offered great advice about getting around and seeing the sights. Tasty traditional Dutch breakfast.
We stayed there as poor graduate students, but we will definitely return even now that we can afford to spend more on a hotel.
Charming, Great Views, Great Area
Stayed @ Hotel Brouwer May 04, and loved it.
It's a charming little hotel. Rooms are small. Our top floor room was called Escher & overlooked a beautiful canal, the location is excellent, close to metro, resturants, cafes & coffee shops. With only 8 rooms its quiet & cosy and staff are friendly, delicious breakfasts downstairs.
We stayed for two nights in June, 2004. We had a room separate from the rest in the house. It was very odd. It had a bed in a closet like structure, as well as a dining room table in the room. The stair cases were extremely tight with your luggage. Nothing special...
A Mousey Time
We stayed in the Van Gogh room for two nights, which allowed for a continually interesting view of the street below. This in and of itself was worth the price of our stay, since the hotel is on the Singel canal, a poetic location to see the surrounding environs. The room was very clean, but the dining area and kitchen needed a bit of a scrub. This charmed us up to a point until we noticed a mouse walking slowly along the hallway adjacent to the dining room. This may or may not disturb future visitors to the hotel, but when we found hair in our morning serving of cheese, our opinions were confirmed. A fine place, otherwise, with a great elevator lift to get you quickly to your floor. If you're not too picky about culinary hygiene and mousey companionship, this hotel serves its purpose for the money.
We stayed at the Brouwer for two nights. The location cannot be beat. It is very centrally located, we walked everywhere. We never did take one of the trams, as it was usually faster to walk! Overlooking the Singel canal was wonderful and very pretty. The walls are a little thin, which I believe is typical of the canal houses. We did not see any red light areas nearby. We did eat at a couple of fantastic restaurants nearby. The staff is friendly, but not overly helpful. Breakfast is good, especially the bread. I would definitely stay there again.
A gem of a hotel
We stayed here in November 2003 after reading the review in the Telegraph. What a good choice! The room was very individual with a view over the Singel Canal. Very pretty at night. It has some 'red lights' nearby but in Amsterdam this isn't a problem. Breakfast was ok but no choice. Owners were lovely and very helpful. If you want a light lunch try Greenwoods down the road a little way. Also, if you like improvised comedy then visit Boom Chicago on the Leidesplein - make sure you get a copy of their magazine before buying your ticket - there is usually a money off voucher.
I can't say enough about this place ... really terrific. Quaint, affordable, clean, perfect location and friendly, helpful service. It definitely went way beyond my expectations of "budget" travel in Europe.
Outstanding experience at the Brouwer
A wonderful Bed and Breakfast in a very convenient location. Have spent one week there and we are returning for this New Year Holiday. An outstanding value - must be booked far in advance.
Classic Canal House
We spent two days in early July at the Hotel Brouwer. It was simple, clean and friendly. A charming, classic canal house. The location is great. An easy walk from the station, but away from the noise of the Dam.
There is a bit of a red light section on this street and in the alley behind the hotel. This adds to the street noise on the week end. This is Amsterdam!
Definately would visit here again. Great value.
Hotel Brouwer - Book Early!
A gem of a canal house hotel on Singel - only 8 rooms, all restored to their 17th Century simplicity with lovely views and private bathrooms. Nice breakfasts too. I've stayed in quite a few hotels around the City, some supposedly with higher star ratings than this one but I don't think it can be beaten for value for money, location and comfort. Only drawback is that it seems to be permanently full, so if you do need to plan ahead if you'd like to stay there. ...

... was spent in the country side and northern Holland where my cousin Truuske lives with her boyfriend Melvin(In town of Leeuwarden), also uncle Alewijn and his boyfriend (Martin) live up around there as well (Towns of Anholt & Maurik). Martin lives at an old farmhouse from the early 1600's and is a B&B where guests can bring their horses. There is a large national park ...
... we stayed in when we went to London in 2012 with the Anchorage adult ed group--a large business hotel. Hans gave us a bit of free time, then took us walking, including the Red Light District--boring, but a few factoids from Hans that we hadn't gotten from Martin last year. Then an Indonesian spread for dinner--a rijstafel. What a ...
... we had missed have even a small place to “call our own” rather than a hotel or a B&B. Of course it certainly helped that this apartment had a wonderful view right on a canal in the highly desirable Jordaan neighborhood so it was certainly easy to feel at home. Once we had a chance to unwind for a few minutes we decided that we really should be out and about exploring this wonderful city so we struck out to get acquainted with our new neighborhood. ...
... seated beside 2 young newlyweds from Australia that we ended up chatting the whole time. When the ride was done we went with them to a.. cafe.. hung out for awhile and then realized we were completely lost on the opposite end of Amsterdam from our hotel with absolutely no brain power to know what to do about it. We shuffled along until I saw some cabs lined up, jumped in one and it got us back to our hotel, but I am pretty sure he took a bit of advantage of our state and took us for ...
... man there invited me to go into a cubicle with "Dame" on the door. I did. There were only three doors. The other side had some curtains. It was all very odd. I have never been in a cubicle so small. When I sat down, my knees were almost touching the door. I figured out that this was going to be a pay as you go toilet and that I would be required to pay for my ablutions. Sure enough, the man who had greeted me, asked for 1 Euro and offered me a beverage if I wished. ...
