TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Bridge Hotel Amsterdam
I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2014. I had just come off a tour group and was looking forward to 3 nights of sleeping in a room by myself. I booked the single bedroom which had a great view out over the canel. Staff were friendly, it was a short walk along the canel to reach the man road and immediate tram lines. Short walk to the city centre it's self. Breakfast was fantastic, room was cleaned everyday, and I could watch the Australian Open (tennis). Be aware there is no lift and several stairs.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bridge Hotel Amsterdam
Good location, nice-sized room, friendly & helpful staff, sufficient breakfast. My wife & I stayed here for 3 nights in late June, and based on value received for the rate charged, the Bridge Hotel is better-than-average---especially when considering the overall higher costs of Amsterdam.
We booked a triple for 4 nights at the Bridge Hotel. The staff was very outgoing and friendly. Everyone spoke excellent English. They were very kind to my children and went out of their way to talk with them. They gave us maps and directions throughout our stay.
Our room was not fancy, but was very airy, clean and quite large. There were large windows that went from the ceiling to almost the floor. Our room faced the side canal. There wasn't a lot of traffic and it was fun to see the occasional boat and all the swans and ducks swim by. The drapes were easily pulled across the windows for privacy. The beds were fine...real pillows....you could control the heat....the bathroom was good, too.
We enjoyed the breakfast very much! A great selection of food....there was the traditional Dutch food, as well as British and American favorites. My children loved breakfast there because they got to add delicious chocolate shavings to their granola and yogurt every morning! The staff kept the coffee pot and food trays filled. Lots of fresh fruit, too.
We enjoyed the ice machine where you could get as much free ice as you wanted. None of our other hotels during our 6 week European trip had this feature.
There is no lift, but we only had to go down one flight of skinny steps so it wasn't too bad. The hotel is in the process of renovations right now. It didn't look as if they were putting in a lift though. It looked like a large staircase going up, but I could be wrong about that. There was quite a bit of banging going on, but they didn't start too early in the morning.
The hotel is off the beaten path, so you have somewhat of a walk to get to a busy street that had restaurants and the Internet. You aren't close to many sites, though you are near the Skinny Bridge.
We would definitely stay there again...and we would highly recommend it to friends.
Wonderful hotel--great views!
The Bridge Hotel was an excellent, hospitable hotel in Amsterdam. The location was beautiful--canals in front and back. Our room was spacious and quite comfortable. The staff did everything to accomodate us, and were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
A Great Place To Stay In Amsterdam
A great place to stay on the Amstel River right near the skinny bridge.
Room overlooking th river was very clean, staff extremely helpful.Excellent location to catch trams to central area. Breakfast was excellent. Would stay here again without question.
Excellent location, service, and value!
The hotel is located right beside the Carre Theatre on the Amstel River about a block from the famous Magere Brug, or Skinny Bridge. It is easily accessible by trams from Centraal Station. I had a double room with huge windows that opened onto the Niewe Prinsengracht canal. It was quiet and clean, and the service during my stay was excellent. The price of the rooms includes ALL taxes AND breakfast! I'll be staying here when I return to Amsterdam!
The Bridge Hotel is ideal for a short or longer stay
I've stayed at the Bridge Hotel on three occasions and have every intention of staying again. It's situated on the Amstel right next to the Theatre Carre. It's clean, the rooms are roomy and simply but attractively furnished. It's usually only about 79 euros per night. The staff are friendly without being overbearing. It's within a stones throw of Rembrandt Plein and the Hortus Botanicus. Booking is easy. Just call and they'll sort out your reservation and email your confirmation.
65Euros! Great location! Impressed!
I am in graduate school and I really researched prices. I called over 100 hotels and this was the best price with the highest rating. I used tripadvisor to get the numbers of the hotels to call directly. I spent 2 nights in Amsterdam with my boyfriend.The room cost 65 Euros and this included all taxes and breakfast. The hotel has its own web site with pictures....The rooms had private baths which was important to us. The bathroom was very modern and clean. The hotel is on a MAJOR canal called Amstel(our room had a view of the side canal, with a small boat docked right outside)The hotel is in between 2 subway stops that are both less than a 5 minute walk: waterlooplein and weesperplein.The tram stop is right next to the waterloplein stop. I never got around to using the tram(day card 5.20E and for 3 days 11.30E)After using both subway stops I prefered to use waterlooplein because it was only 2 stops up to central station (nieuwmarkt stop was in between)(price is 6.20E for 15 strips about 6 rides depending on what zone you go)In the end we WALKED around alot instead of using the train and tram. Nieuwmarkt was a 10 minute walk,central station was a 15 minute walk,rembrandtplein 5 min., leidseplein 10 min.walk.I was VERY HAPPY and IMPRESSED with bridge hotel. It turned out better than I expected. I was nervous because the price was so good.In retrospect, the only slight negative was the room is small. It had 2 beds, a table with 2 chairs, and 2 end tables. We only slept and ate breakfast so that did not matter. You really can't beat the price though.I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a GREAT price. It is safe, clean, great location, and the hotel staff was friendly (they are open 24 hours and they keep the key everytime you come in and out).Email me and under the subject put: Bridge Hotel, Amsterdam if you have any other questions.
Clean, friendly hotel
Had a great stay in the Bridge Hotel. It was basic but very clean and good value for money. The central location was brilliant and we were able to walk to most of the attractions or catch the tram (easy to use and very frequent). Would definitely use the hotel again for future trips
A great place to stay in Amsterdam!
Great location in Amsterdam, right on the Amstel River near the "Skinny Bridge". Staff is friendly, place is clean and price includes breakfast. Good value. This is not a 5 star hotel but a very solid place to stay. Would definitely recommend the place and stay there again.
Very clean hotel
te words clean, safe and freindly describe the Bridge nicely. Stayed for weekend and was not dissapointed with anything, I would even have my mother-in law stay there. For the price I have not seen a nicer hotel.

Day 24 The final day of our whirlwind adventure across Europe, 10 countries in 24 days, has finally reached an end. I was up early to wave goodbye to my new Contiki friends this morning. Most are headed back to london today, then on to Australia later in the week. With everyone talking about getting to see their family again, cracking open a bundy …

... to lift our spirits and reinvigorate ourselves. One of the highest recommended sights, the canal tours, ended up being our biggest faux pas. After a thirty hour day with little sleep, signing up for a tour where they gently rock you back and forth and serenade you in three languages may not have been the best choice for beating jet lag. We hoped for a change in pace by visiting the science museum where plenty of interesting sights should keep our two ...

After the event finished, we said goodbye to Sandy and made our way to the afterparty, which several of the acts from the concert were going to sing their songs again for a smaller audience.
We were fortunate enough to also be able to meet some of the artists more personally, as they were just floating around the venue. This included the German, Lithuanians and Norwegians, as well as hearing ...

Dinner back at the hotel, since it was cold and wet out.
Next day we were instructed to catch the 1146 train to Gouda ~46min so that Willem could meet us.
