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. ...

... but certainly not least a group of boys being slapped in the face by some solid breasts then having to eat a banana off her different body parts!! It was certainly an interesting experience and we can say we have seen some things!! For our sightseeing day in Amsterdam we decided to do a bike tour with Mike's Bike Tours! This was a great time! Hilarious having to weave in and out of the other ...
Amsterdam had it all. The weather was perfect during our 6 days. Particularly lucky as it rains here 300 days a year! The one low point of our stay was wasting a whole day trying to talk to the bank and travel card company. But that still left the night! The free walking tour gave us some great info on the city and how it came about. Such as that 70% of the Netherlands is below sea level, the local airport is called schiphol because the guy that used to farm ...
The second stop on our European adventure was to Amserstam, Netherlands. We boarded a bus and rode for 3 hours until we reached the outskirts of the city, from there we took a tram into the city center. We stepped off, and the first thing I did was notice a change in the air and said "Weed. Weed everywhere." It hits you instantly because everyone around you is smoking it. If they're not smoking weed then they're most likely smoking a cigarette. Either ...
... for breakfast. We had French toast and it was yum. We caught a canal cruise and cruised the canals for an hour. The houses are built on unstable land and many of them are leaning. We felt a real buzz as soon as we arrived in Amsterdam and love the city. We went back to the bnb and had a sleep. We walked to Anne franks house! but the line up was too long to bother visiting. We tried out some profejes, little pancakes with icing sugar and syrup. ...
... and when we stumbled upon the red light district and we were trying to get to the national museum.
Despite our admittedly "rusty" orientation skills, we all agreed on number 3 by the end of our stay. For example, although we wouldn't have been able to find our way to the National Museum without our beloved map, we had several detours along the way that took us off track, meaning we spent much of the day in little flea markets and secret ...
