    I liked my stay at Nicolaas Witsen. Good value for money. 20 min walk from the central square of Amsterdam. 3 min by tram. Free wi-fi in the room. Nice friendly personell. There is breakfast (simple but ok). I would recommend the hotel if you come to the city for sightseeing but not for spending the wole day in :). I am absolutely happy with my choice for this trip.

    I stayed here with my husband and 18 month old son while on a business trip. While the room was quite small, I understand that it was in line with what you might expect in a traditional house/hotel in Amsterdam. However, the staff were amazing. They bent over backward to make us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay. The hotel was spotlessly clean, breakfast was good, the location was great (a quiet area just 10-15 minutes walk away from the centre, and just 5 minutes from all the bars and restaurants of de Pijp). I would highly recommend this hotel, and plan to return in the near future.

    Room small but everywhere spotlessly clean. Hotel has lift. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Great shower and lots of hot water. Good breakfast inclusive in room price. Quiet area, safe, and pretty canal. Big street market a short stroll away. Restaurants and cafes nearby with good tram links (Tram 4 and 25) into city through Dam Square to Central Station. Will return here and recommend to friends.

    We booked a deluxe room and were disappointed at size of room and view of flat roof extension with adjacent scaffolding out of back of hotel. We asked to change rooms for a view over the street (which is quite pretty) but the hotel was full booked. It seems our room was larger than most in Amsterdam and that the fact it had a bath as well as a shower and a safe (with an extra 5euro admin charge) defined its luxury status. Still not impressed by this but as it happened we were in the room very little and other facilities and services were very good.

    We like the portier who works most time we stayd. He was polite, But everybody were nice .Breakfast okej. Small room but we were prepared. Okej walking into the city but if small children- or pain in feet, rekomends "cable car" .

    We used the step in the hotell- very small and long.But we were lucky- the was an elevator.

  • Single
    9.2

    A great location not far from the main sights in Amsterdam, but still quiet. It's possible to walk or to catch a tram to almost anywhere a tourist would want to go. The rooms are small and sparse, but comfortable and fine if you keep you expectations in line with the price. The staff were exceptionally helpfu.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Very well located for tram stops to the city and railway station and many of the attractions of Amsterdam. It is also possible to have very pleasant walks from the hotel along the canals. The breakfast was very good at the hotel and, although there are no facilities in the rooms to make drinks, the bar is open and will serve hot and cold drinks which can be taken to the room. The reception is staffed 24 hours a day and the staff are very pleasant.

    The only slight concern we had was that there was no anti-slip mat or bath mat provided and one of us had quite a nasty fall in the bath whilst taking a shower.

    A nice, pretty hotel in a dutch house, near the inner city. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is a buffet with different sorts of bread, dutch cheese and ham.

  • Single
    7.8

    Very comfortable beds and clean rooms. Friendly staff with a nice independent feel to it. Good location and good value compared to others I think.

    Perhaps a little over-priced for the size of room, which was a little small. But thats Amsterdam, so a relatively fair price. A little noisy as I could hear people walking around above me but not really a big deal. There was also a mattress proppped up in the hallway which was a bit unfortunate aesthetically.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The hotel is on a quiet street, close to a tram stop and in walking distance to some of the best museums in Amsterdam.

    Our room was very small, but it was very clean and met all our needs.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The staff was very friendly - especially appreciated by two weary travellers who arrived at 0.30. The hotel is on a quiet side street, and the other guests were quiet also. It is a convenient walk to the museums from the hotel. The room was so clean! And the shower had very good hot water! And the breakfast included was one of the best we have ever been provided by any hotel! We look forward to staying at Hotel Nicolaas Witsen during any future trips to Amsterdam, and will recommend it to our friends.

    We liked everything.

    The staff were friendly and we were allowed to check in early. The room was comfortable and it had a modern clean tiled bathroom. It was easy to walk from the hotel into town which only took about 5 - 10 minutes.

    There was nothing in specific we didn't like but we would have been even happier if there had been a larger breakfast selection. We were surprised to see that there was no toast.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The hotel was nice and cosy. The location is great - next to Rembrandtplein and Pijp, and not that far from the city center (easily accessible by walk). The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was pretty decent. They also offer a garage service, at a reasonable price, which is really helpful.

    A disadvantage is, that the rooms are small. The bathroom and shower cabin are small too.

  • Single
    7.4

    Hotel room was small but great for the more minimalist-minded traveler, and rooms were clean and well-kept. Breakfast was included. The neighborhood was beautiful and outside the crazy center of Amsterdam, though still within a short walk.

    Hotel is expensive for what you get, but I think you will have trouble finding a comparable hotel in Amsterdam for less.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Everyone was very helpful and friendly during our stay at the Nicolaas Wistsen it was convenient to all the different areas in Amsterdam but very quiet. We originally were supposed to stay at a different hotel near Dam square but after finding the other hotel we were very glad we had ended up at the Nicolaas Witsen instead.

    The shower was a little small and no clothing storage but nothing that would keep you from enjoying your stay.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Location was good. Bright, airy room. Desk staff were very helpful and polite. We had a really nice stay.

    Broken toilet seat in room 35. Single beds pushed together instead of a proper double room. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Limited breakfast: I asked if a piece of raisin bread could be toasted and was told "no" (a bit mean!) so we were limited to bread and cheese/ham only. Orange juice wasn't fresh (from concentrate). Safe was too small to fit my camera in it. I could hear the shower in the room next door when they used it very early in the morning.
