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.

... to look both ways and behind you before crossing anything. Designated pedestrian zones are a blessing, but sometimes the bikes even enter that territory. On top of that, street signs and red lights seem to mean little to them. It gets a little annoying.
It is also very crowded. As a pedestrian you are dodging cars, trams, motorcycles and bikes as well as very many pedestrians. It reminded us of the people traffic near the ...

In the afternoon, Phil and Judy departed for home and we took a tour of the Anne Frank House - another stark reminder of the "persecution of Jews" and how some Jews were hidden by non-Jewish friends and colleagues to almost certain death in concentration camps. That evening, we found a quiet restaurant for a ...
... due to the length of the line at the Anne Frank house, our exploration was cut short and we simply wandered Amsterdam (passing through the Red Light District) on the way to our tour bus. The Red Light District was fun, showing how weird American cultural values are around sex and drugs and how seemingly blase everyone around there was about it. I guess some states ...
Truly, lots of bikes, all travelling at high speed along the cycle ways. Also on the cycle ways arcity Vespas and these funny little cars You take your life into your hands when you walk around here, let alone crossing the street. If the bikes don't get you, or the cars don't get you, the trams can have a turn. A really busy city with people everywhere. A very open minded city. We even saw a man at a restaurant smoking marijuana! ...
