Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely Fifteeenth Century house beautifully restored as a bijou up market hotel. Charming staff and service. Each room is indidually designed to reflect a past trade. We stayed in the Shoemaker. Well placed in Amsterdam to be within easy walking distance of the museums, retaurants, station, etc and of coure one is never more than a stones throw from a canal. Old buildings are like old friends – they have a charm and character that cannot be replaced

Excellent & surprisingly quiet location which was perfect for bars etc. Beautiful room with comfy bed and great views of the canal. Breakfast served in the lovely room downstairs which was delicious but the stars of this place are the wonderful staff. Can’t praise the craftsman highly enough.

We stayed with the Craftsman for 2 nights for my Husbands birthday last weekend and we were so impressed by the cosy, boutique, friendly and elegant vibe within the hotel. Our room was the Cartographer which had a beautiful claw foot bathtub in the room and a separate en suite bathroom with amazing shower. The view over the canals was so stunning and the beds were so cosy, we never wanted to leave them. The breakfast was delicious as well, eggs, fresh mini pancakes, fruit, yogurt, pastries and cheese and ham board. The staff were all so helpful and friendly as well. What I thought was a lovely touch was the what’s app messages before the stay and the chat option when checking in, I was able to sort out everything so easily and if I needed anything the hotel were so accessible with the different communication methods. We got breakfast to the room and it was always so fresh and prompt. The location is great as well, the central station is just 10min walk away and it’s just perfect location, nestled away from the noise and bustle of some of the very busy streets but everything is a tram or a short walk away. There is a cool cocktail place as well just across from the hotel, called Tales & Spirits. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a cosy, friendly and chill vibe, definitely good for romantic couple breaks. Would definitely go back again.

Absolutely lovely accommodation. I was lucky to receive a room upgrade to The Blacksmith which had a large bathroom with tub and shower. Meant for families with 3 beds, but for the main bed was great because the doors between street and bed were able to block the street noise. Breakfast is served in a room overlooking the canal and included poffertjes, yogurt, some savory items, and bread choices. The location is near the Jordaan and transit. As a solo traveler I felt very safe here. Highly recommend!

My review is from my stay 10 months ago. Regrettably I never got around to writing this until now, however I still think about my stay often. The hotel is centrally located and easy to walk to many places, including the Centraal train station. The service was fantastic from the moment I walked in exhausted from an overnight flight from the US. I stayed in the instrument maker room which was adequate for my solo stay for several nights - the view amazing. The staff greeted me every morning as I came down for breakfast (which was included with the rate). Breakfast was sufficient and delicious. If you have an early morning and will miss breakfast service, they will prepare breakfast to go for you and deliver it to your room the evening before. I had a tour early one morning and included in my to go breakfast package was a hand written note telling me to enjoy my time in the tulip fields. These little details really made my stay special and made me feel at home. The staff genuinely takes an interest in you as a guest and offers personalized service you won’t find in many other places. Would recommend ensuring you have WhatsApp on your phone, as that’s how they communicated with me at times while I was out and about enjoying the day. 10/10 would highly recommend a stay here and I hope to go back again someday.
