Seven Bridges Hotel
Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
We arrived into Amsterdam 6:30 am on April Fool's Day. 2 dogs made the KLM journey from Chicago too. I thought about them all night down in cargo and was happy to see them at baggage claim on the other side...tired and tentative, but good. There is no quarantine of incoming pets--just registration/vaccination papers to show. It took some …
We took the train back to Amsterdam, again going through the track works and arriving late. We checked into room 11 and had a big dinner at the steak place. We took a train to Keukenhof one day to see the flower fields. Hyacinths and Tulips were blooming--long wide fields of them. Unique new varieties of flowers were on display, though the bulbs …
We spent 5 days in Amsterdam and became somewhat disappointed--though we eventually got over it. This was the first trip NOT Ireland or Great Britain. We didn't speak the language and we missed the familiarity of Dublin. So, we found an Irish bar--Mulligans. We spent a few nights there listening to music. My favorite was the drummer who tied wood …
... Once inside the museum it was incredible. The first half of the museum is through the original house including the office for the store that Otto Frank owned. You walk through and eventually come to the passageway which was the access point to the secret annex. The original swinging bookshelf that hid the door was still there and open allowing you to re trace the steps of the individuals who went into hiding. You go through each of the rooms and although empty ...
... hostel and onto a walking tour. The hostel was very clean and modern on the inside, although a bit far away from downtown. It had really good transit access. We got settled into our bunks and prepared to go on the walking tour. Geoff stayed behind because he was still a bit tired. I made my way downstairs and we were off to explore.
Dee was again our tour guide and showed us all around! ...

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.
