1637: Historic Canal View Suites

Amsterdam City Centre, Amsterdam

Situated in Amsterdam, 700 metres from Royal Palace Amsterdam, 1637: Historic Canal View Suites features rooms with river views and free WiFi. The property is located 1.7 km from Museum of Bags and Purses Hendrikje, 2.5 km from Leidseplein and 2.5 km from Rembrandt House. Guests can enjoy city views. The room was beautiful... a typical Amsterdam canal house with a great view over the canal with large windows that open. The room was done to a high standard and the owner of the property was super helpful and friendly. I visit Amsterdam fairly regularly and stay in hotels and thought I'd try this type of property and I wasn't disappointed. It is a boutique property (not a business hotel) so it lacks a few amenities like a desk for example, but it more than makes up for it in charm and style. This is a real gem in a fantastic location... close to everything, but is also very quiet, tucked away from the chaos of central Amsterdam. If you want to explore Amsterdam and feel like a local, this quintessential canal suite is perfect.

H 58

Bos en Lommer, Amsterdam

H 58 is a homestay in the Bos en Lommer district in Amsterdam, 700 metres from Studio Westerpark.

The homestay also offers bike hire. Anne Frank House is 1.9 km from H 58, while Royal Palace Amsterdam is 2.6 km from the property. Schiphol Airport is 10 km away. We chose to stay predominantly under the influence of other people’s reviews and we were not disappointed. Hilde could not have been more helpful from the start to finish of our stay. Check-in (even with a few stumbles unlocking the door) was super easy and we were never out of contact with Hilde should we need her help. The room is gorgeous (we were met with a personalised door to our room, greeting us!). Decorated with quant little features, a lovely big bathroom, gorgeous shower. Hilde went above and beyond with basic toiletries and snacks/drinks provided. Plenty of towels and a lovely big bed! The location situates you about 30 mins (walk) from Dam square but the walk in is lovely when the sun is shining. Alternatively, the tram number 19 runs every 8 mins (ish) and is super easy to get you in and out of the centre. It is truly a local area and removes you from the touristy chaos if that’s not so much your thing. Hilde is full of knowledge of the area and nothing is too much to ask. We will be back soon to see that lovely smile and for a beer !! Cannot recommend enough.

Parksight

Oud-West, Amsterdam

Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Parksight offers non-smoking accommodation in Amsterdam.

Situated in the souterrain, every room includes a flat-screen TV. You will find a coffee machine in the room. I loved that it was so near the airport. You don't have to go all the way to central station to go here and its really easy to find too, just along the main road. The place was so cute and the owner of the place was very accommodating, the place reminded me of a small rabbit hole and really quaint, clean and had everything that we needed. He also always made sure to clean the place, even after we left the place very messy sometimes especially after rushing out. There was a fridge and everything, it really felt like a hotel.
