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. ...

Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
Tomorrow we take ('‘the A train…) A as in Amsterdam, where we will spend our last official night in Europe before leaving in the morning for our return flight from Schipol. Our plane is estimated to depart in the early afternoon and we look forward to seeing our friends, family, house, dog, neighbourhood and other familiar people and sights when we return - hopefully not too jet lagged. Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and we hope to see you soon!
... the door we couldn't find the light switch so Erin and I just stood in the dark dying of laughter for a while in complete denial. On top of the room situation the wifi was not working and when we asked the guy at the front desk he didn't seem to care at all to help. So we said screw him and went out to get some delicious burgers and beer and then made a friend back at the hostel who was traveling by himself from California.
The next day we had ...
... so that worked out well because Scott had run out of undies and socks (he wasn't too happy when it cam back later though and he claimed to have lost 3 pairs of socks!) so we put that in before heading to the bus stop to go into Amsterdam. We decided to do the hop on hop off canal ride and it was really good fun. It was a different perspective being down in the river and looking back at everything. Got some good photos to of the house boats that were along the canal. ...
... street from our hotel.
... with his nonstop chatter but we did glean an interesting factoid or two from him. Spring had only recently sprung so the flower fields were not as vibrant and varied as the brochure, but once we were in the garden we felt and smelled spring. It was really amazing and comfortable. We had a bite to eat (krokets? and Indonesian chicken noodles). We toured the windmill and talked to the wooden shoe decorator. It's hard to believe all of this only lasts two months! ...
