booked this hotel for a 3 night stay as wanted typical dutch house on canal. Location was excellent with fantastic views of the Singel Canal,but room and service basic. Definitely a quirky hotel which is very different from your normal run of the mill chain hotel -just not sure location is enough to justify this hotel's rating on trip advisor....

The staff were friendly and courteous, the location was superb, only a few minutes walk from the station and within easy walking distance of the city centre. We had great vews of the canal from our room. This was at the top of the building, the only draw back was a degree of noise from the plumbing. We loved the...

We were a little anxious as some of the reviews lately have been very mixed but we had a great stay. Yes, the staff were not the same every day but all were helpful and polite and provided extra pillows and ice for our drinks faster than some 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The lift was an adventure...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Brouwer during our first trip to Amsterdam in May of 2009. The Brouwer is a quaint canal house conveniently located in the heart of Singel 83. We stayed in the Vermeer room for three nights and we were very comfortable during our stay. Our room was spacious (for European standards), clean, and...

The Hotel Brouwer is an old canal house that looks somewhat shabby and "gone to seed," although it is clean and has a convenient location. It serves a nice Dutch breakfast, although the coffee was below average--much less good than one gets in almost any cafe. If the hotel decor were a little more imaginative and artistic, and had fresh...

We stayed at Hotel Brouwer on a recent trip to Amsterdam. It cost about 95 euros, which when converted to dollars was about $135 at that time. The hotel is small, but our room was fairly large, very clean, had a recently updated bathroom and small flat screen TV. We stayed in the Vermeer Room, which had a nice view...

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
