This is a little gem of a place nestled on the Amstel canal and in walking distance of all the attractions the city has to offer. Ken made us feel very welcome and although we stayed in the 'standard' room it felt like a little bit of luxury compared to what other hotels offer for the same price in the...

had the room at the basement which is cheaper but without the nice view to the amstel. Friendly personnel, own kitchen and always basic food included! Location is a short walk from the central station and very close to the cities centre.

Who is the elusive Ken? Communications great beforehand, but no-where to be seen on arrival! Do not disturb the next door neighbours (where apparently Ken lives!) RED SHEETS, RED TOWELS, RED RUG!!! Unexplained dirty mark on bathroom cupboard door (next to wc - eeugh!)! Previous 'guests' soap left on top of shower (eeugh!!). Teeny, tiny shower room - squeezing past...

We had a canal view room on the lst floor that turns out to be a walk-up on steep, curvy, narrow steps. We asked for a room with a bath...we got that, but we had to walk down the hall, passed another room, in a hall way that squeaked when you walked to use the bathroom... Unconfortable feeling with someone...

If we consider that average accomodations in Amsterdam are very small and expensive, our staying was not too bad. The room was big and on the groud floor. We had a kitchen and a small bathroom en-suite. It is perfect for a family. Everything is at walking distance, that is great for a city like Amsterdam. What we did not...

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had such a great weekend. We loved this guest house, we had the family suite which is huge! It is on the ground floor but can still see the canal. Such a perfect location, able to walk everywhere, we didn't use public transport the entire weekend. I would recommend staying...

Do not stay here. I booked the canal view suite for my husbands suprise trip to Amsterdam. When we arrived we were allocated a room, not a suite with no window. I was in tears, we paid £250 euro for what was basically a bed sit. I rang the door bell of the house next door where Ken lived, he...

This is a really lovely place. It’s situated on the north side of the Amstel Canal and only a short walk from the main streets leading up to Dam Square. However, where the guest house is situated itself is very quiet. Also, Rembrandt Square is close by on the other side of the canal, with lots of bars and restaurants....

The location is very close to the main attractions of the city. However, the location is very quiet with no traffic. Staff is helpful and flexible. We traveled with four adults and a baby and had stayed in the deluxe and family rooms. Both of the rooms are large, beautifully decorated and well cleaned. Both rooms have nice view, especially...

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.
