Historical Traveler Reviews Seven Bridges Hotel Amsterdam
The Perfect Site
This hotel is the perfect base for a traveler spending a few days in Amsterdam. My wife, daughter and I spent a week here in April and day-tripped to The Hague, Haarlem, and Delft.
The room we had was spacious, comfortable, clean, and quiet. We stayed in the studio in the adjacent building so we can't comment on their breakfast.
The hotel is very well situated: near to transport and activity, but two blocks from any "busy-ness".
Visitors should eat at Ponte Arcoli, up the block.
Tram lines are nearby, a small food shop and a bakery are around the corner on the adjacent block, and all of Amsterdam is within a tram ride!
Quiet, calm & easy to be in...
My friend and I have stayed at the 7 Bridges a few times, each time very lovely and quiet. The breakfast is great. The neighbourhood is cool and you are pretty close to everything.... The best part? We made great friends with our 'taxi driver' (that the hotel called for us) and correspond with one another frequently. The hotel is lovely and not a creepy Howard Johnson or Hilton, it's unique and in a world that's spinning out of corporate control, that's a PLUS!
A private quaint retreat
We stayed in this marvelous B&B during November 2002. We were well taken care of. We had a large room with a large windown that opened up to see the great view of the gardens. Every morning we were greeted with breakfast: choice of breads, cheese and meat with coffee or tea on fine china. It was serene. It is in within walking distance of the museums, shops, and restuarants. It is a lovely place.
We travelled in Jul '03, and the hotel itself is nicely furnished, especially the top floor canal-side (where we stayed) and 2nd floor aftside. The stairs are definitely narrow and steep. I loved everything about this hotel but the noise from the nearby Jamaican coffeehouse and 'plein'. We learned to keep all the windows open during the day to cool off the room, then close them at night. Honestly, unless you go in the off-season, I'd recommend a non-canalside room if you like it quiet at night. Aside from that, the rooms were nice and hosts were superb.
Delicious hotel by a canal
We found this lovely, cozy hotel in august when Amsterdam is incredibly crowded just walking in and enquiring. We were so happy when the nice owner said he had a room We stayed in the dependance and we had a large room, with a nice entrance, large bathroom and a kitchenette. The room had a large window overlooking the canal. It had beautiful posters and a large antique mirror. we loved it and found it very welcoming after a long day sightseeing.
Perfect for a romantic retreat
Small and attratively idiosyncratic hotel with resolutely non-corporate values that stands in marked contrast to the blandness of most hotels.
Location is central but peaceful. Owners / staff are friendly and appealingly eccentric. Breakfast in bed is a particular treat. Prices are competitive, but it can be very difficult to book. All in all, ideal if you're after a romantic break.
Great ,cozy BB, wonderful location and quiet
This BB is in a building that dates back 250 years,yet the building has been beautifully redone, keeping original architecture, all the rooms are different, we stayed in room 8 which faced the courtyard, very quiet and quaint, so either the canal side or the courtyard would be a good choice. Breakfast was great . All the places to visit are within a 15min walk , great location and great scenery to enjoy walking.
Excellent BB close to Rembrandt Square where all types of restaurants are located for you to enjoy from Dutch to Thai to MacDonalds. No shortage of places to eat and drink.
Most places of interest are within 15-30 min walk along the very attractive canals.
Seven Bridges is furnished with antique furniture, clean, warm, and welcoming.
Breakfast served in your room so missed meeting other guests at the BB, some might think this to be a good idea but we missed talking to other guests about where we had been and where they might suggest we go the next day.
We stayed for 5 nights at the end of October2002 and if no when we go back to Amsterdam we would have no hesitation in going back to Seven Bridges.
Hotel Seven Bridges is one of the loveliest B&B that I have ever stayed in. It is a romantic, quiet little spot within walking distance from the city centre. Our room was on the top floor and faced the garden - the furnishings were tasteful and the room was clean. The owners were friendly, even after I accidentally set off the fire alarm by leaving the hot water running a bit too long. Oh, and I shouldn't forget the gorgeous guy who works at the front desk. I highly recommend this place both in terms of location and service.
Very private and very relaxed
A beautiful hotel with lots of charactor, the Hotel Seven Bridges is an absolute treat to stay at.
If you like antique furnishings, unfussy staff, peace and quiet and a feeling that your staying in a hidden treasure then this is the hotel for you.
Our room was on the ground floor and was one of the smaller rooms. This didn't put us off as the large antique bed and furninshings and floor to ceiling windows more than made up for it. Bathroom was small but beautifuly furnished, lots of fluffy towels, plenty of hot water (which isn't always the case with some hotels!)
When we visited it was December and it was minus 4 degrees in Amsterdam, our room was cosy and comfortable, a beautiful haven to go back to after a day out in the city.
The owners were very chilled and unobtrusive.

... So, yeah, it is like this weirdly happy utopian perfect town. Not weird in a bad way…just like this uber-friendly, cheerful, Stepford(ish) sort of place. It is pretty and the people are lovely and the house we’ve rented is gorgeous, but after a week we are ready to get the hell out of here!!!
Why you might ask? Do you not like cleanliness and friendliness? Do cute shops and heated bathroom floors bother you? No, no, all of that is great. We just ...
... is filled with Golden Age masterpieces, including a self-portrait painted by a young Rembrandt (age 22). After our whirlwind (90-minutes) tour, we exited the museum and paid a brief visit to the gardens on the Rijkmuseum's grounds, where beds of tulips, fountains, and statues create a very peaceful spot to sit on a bench and relax after the sensory overload of the museum.
We were back in our apartment by 4 o'clock, and Chef Dee outdid herself ...

We figured out which side to walk on thanks to a kind local that spewed Dutsch at us while swerving by on his bicycle pointing at the black part of the sidewalk. I can’t ever be certain, but by the tone of his voice and the spit coming out as he gritted his teeth, I can imagine he was saying, “Please step on this black side while walking ...
... it was still 0-0. So, they had a shootout and Holland won at the last second (1:30 am by this time). I thought everyone in the bar was going to have a heart attack! Afterwards, the whole city went crazy. People were driving down the streets, honking and cheering. I went with some people from my hotel to a rooftop bar in town. However, I didn't stay too long, as I needed to get up very early the next ...

tulips. A few facts: the Keukenhof covers 80 acres; the gardens are open for 7 weeks between March and May; no vehicles are permitted; over 7,000,000 bulbs-daffodils, hyacinths and tulips are planted each year. In addition to the plantings, the complex includes a pavillion for special exhibits that change every few weeks, a 'celebrity row' (I saw only two ...
