A group of us stayed in this Hotel (Guest house) we were given double rooms as triple rooms.
Two beds joined together with a sofa bed as the third bed. With the third bed laid out there was not enough room to get to the toilet as you had to climb over the sofa bed. This would have also proved dangerous if we needed to get out of the room in an emergency. The toilet smelt like a urinal. We could not sleep with the noise outside. Although this did not seem to be an issue for the rest of our party who were at the back of the building.
The double room offered contained a bed against a wall with only enough room at the side of the bed for one person to walk. We were moved to a different room when we complained.
This accommodation was not commensurate with the price paid, and when we challenged the manager/owner she was very unhelpful, We had booked three triple rooms and got two doubles and a single and she insisted on charging us for accommodation that she admittedly could not provide.

On the positive side the beds were comfortable and clean. The decor was modern and the location was ideal. I would not recommend this accommodation you could stay at a better class of hotel for the price.

My daughter and I were in Amsterdam for a week while I went to a medical conference. I wanted to stay in a location where my daughter could go to the museums while I was at my meeting. I couldn't have selected a better location. We were one block from the leidesplein, so plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, and dance clubs. We were on the tram line which made city travel easy. The hotel is clean and contemporary. Located on one of the canals, this picturesque hotel is a delight. Natalie, the owner, adeptly manages the reception desk AND makes breakfast. She is a wealth of information on the local spots and made our stay a lot of fun. We would definitely stay there if we visit again!

Room Tip: Just tell Natalie what you would like, close to the street, a good view, etc.

I was on a budget (problems with credit cards abroad), and Natalie really helped me with deciding where I should visit. As a lone traveller, the staff made me feel so at home. Mylarge room
Overlooked the canal in what I consider the best district.
Free Wifi (a godsend) and fared so much better than the 5 star hotel I was booked into for the remainder of my stay. Great breakfast!

Just back from a 4 night stay in this lovely hotel off the Leidse Plein. Great central location means it's easy to walk everywhere, but trams stop just around the corner. The 197 bus from Schiphol saves on the taxi fare too! We - a family of two adults and 16 year old- stayed in a 3 person room with twin beds and a comfortable fold down sofa bed. The room was spacious and clean, and the ensuite, although very compact, was fine for our needs with shampoos and shower gels provided. The owner Natalie has a warm and humorous personality and thrives on multi-tasking- she can make apple pancakes, eggs and bacon, set tables, answer the phone and still manage to chat to her guests all at the same time! Breakfasts are highly recommended, great value, and set us up for days of exploring the city by foot and bike. We loved our stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Boutique Hotel View, which manages to be centrally located but still removed from Amsterdam's tourist hoardes. We had the Princess Room, with a small balcony overlooking the canal. Owner Nathalie did everything she could to make us comfortable, including carrying our luggage up three flights of stairs and whipping up great homemade pancakes in the morning. Recommended.

The Boutique Hotel View is a fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam. Natalie, the manager, is very friendly, makes the best pancakes and omelettes and is always ready to help if needed. Also her staff is kind, competent and the atmosphere in the hotel is agreable and familiar. The rooms are very clean, convenient and - although it's in the heart of the city - silent. We can just recommend the hotel to anyone and see no negative points.
