The Bridge Hotel
Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
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 …
Well if we thought Belgium was liberal and tolerant, we hadn't seen nothing yet! Welcome to Amsterdam! Who couldn't help but love (or at the very least be enamoured!) with a city where there are more bicycles than human population, more canals and bridges than anyone could count, an open air market for sex, and where you get wafts of pot smoke coming from the many "coffee shops" around every other corner!! Being pretty far north, it didn't get dark until 11pm and was ...
... Albert Hejin Supermarket to pick up some staples for our lunch. It was a far cry from lunch onboard the Eurodam, but all-in-all T&J's tomato soupen tasted greaten - "Si".
Next stop Deventer - Stay tuned for potential accident reports to follow - there are buses, mopeds, bikes, stollers and potheads coming from all directions - you need to have you wits about you just the cross the street.
... to salad dressing and beans. It was great, I was very tempted to buy peanut butter but I didn't have enough room in my bag to bring it with me for the rest of the trip and I probably would have eaten before I even got back to Cork. That night we ate at an Italian restaurant and got 5 euro pizzas which were very yummy. Then we did a pub crawl. It was only twenty euros and we got a t-shirt with it too, it was a lot of fun but weird because it was a Monday when we did it. We met ...
... on in with the locals in no time- and that's also what it took to get around with the bikes- no time. We rode all over town. Day 2 we saw the Van Gogh museum- pretty good, but lacking many famous pieces, such as " Starry Night" ( New York museum of modern art). Cruised the "hogs" into the heart of town, and did a little shopping. Then onto the Red Light District. Interesting to say the least. We were surprised at how pretty many of the prostitutes in the "windows" were. ...

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.
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.
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.
