Stayed seven nights, first on the garden side and then on the canal side. Very clean and comfortable. The shared toilet and shower were also clean and well kept. Breakfasts are excellent. Ernst's restaurant recommendations were perfect. You're away from the really touristy areas like Dam square, but everything is within a fifteen minute walk. But pack a small suitcase...

We walked straight past this hotel at first - a tiny black door that you had to bend to enter. Original old canal house converted into small hotel, run by the family. Wonderful breakfast - best thing was all the guests ate at same large table, so you met other travellers and chatted to them, which was very interesting. Room...

Having read a number of reviews and the extremely high ranking on this site I didn't hesitate to request a room reservation as part of a surprise of a 3 night break in Amsterdam for my partner's birthday. When we arrived at our pre-arranged time at Hotel Keizershof we had a bizarre introduction in that we were told someone by...

We had a similar to experience to several other reviewers of the Keizershof in that when we arrived there was some confusion over our room. Another guest had been placed in our room (which by the way had a shared bathroom which we weren't aware of on booking...) but with what seemed like minimal hassle we were told we could...

This is one of the best B&B we have ever stayed in. We knew nothing of Amsterdam and this was a good choice. We wanted an authentic stay in an original building in the historic Amsterdam style. The place is beautiful and comfortable and you won't get any more authentic than the Hotel Keizreshof. The food was terrific and the...

Hotel Keizershof is a wonderful and fairly inexpensive way to see Amsterdam. The owner is charming and the staff is very capable. Our room was spacious and quaint with a fabulous view of the canal. Wonderful breakfasts in a family setting. One of the best omelets I've ever eaten. It is situated perfectly no matter what you want to do...

I made two brilliant moves in planning my trip to Amsterdam last week. One was to take a bright ribbon to tie around the handlebars of my rental bike so I could distinguish it from the thousands of other black bikes at the train station and the other, more far reaching decision was to follow Rick Steve's advice and book...

We have been to Amsterdam a few times now and we have found this the best place to stay. The location is really handy as it is very close to the tram stop which takes you to Central station, plus it is walking distance to most attractions in Amsterdam. The hotel itself is charming, we stayed in the room on...
