Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2012

The first thing you will notice when you enter The Sebastians will be someone on the front desk already smiling at you and of course the exotic color and decoration.
The staff are really helpful throughout the entire stay. Giving you tips of what to do and where to go.
Breakfast is really good, with a nice selection of breads,muffins, jams, cheese ,cold cuts, etc.
The location is great because you are in a short walk from the station, in front of a canal, close to nice cafes and still it is not a noisy area.
Now let's talk about the rooms, they can be a bit too small, the bathroom as well, but the shower is good, all the room furniture looks nice, new and clean.
There is a Nespresso machine in the room, with a wide selection of nespresso cofeees, including decaf and also a good selection of teas. All free of charge.
The mini bar has what we usually expect from a minibar, so, also good.
There is a good hairdryer ( hard to find good ones in a hotel) in the wardrobe and a safe.
The housekeeping ladies do not disturb you knocking on the door in the morning. They are very friendly, going to your room only when they know that you are not there and they definetely do an excellent job.
The only, but only thing I would complain about the Sebastians is the fact that there is a very thin double mattress on top of two single mattresses so when you move around the bed you can actually feel the gap in between and that is not very comfortable then you should not sleep in the middle, or you might be completely uncomfortable.
I believe they are already aware of that and might change the mattresses, at least to a thicker double one so you do not feel the gap bettween the single mattresses. Once again, this would be the only negative thing, but it can surely be fixed.
Yes you might hear noises from other rooms, but that is a risk you might take when booking any other hotel in Amsterdam. This should not stop you from booking your room there.
It is a hotel that we can really recommend!!

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit more to get a room with a canal view.

We stayed at Sebastians in March 2012, a small double room with canal view. Didn't find it particularly small, its was cosy and ideal for our single night stay. Arrived late, at about 9pm after a delay from Leeds / Bradford, to be greeted by 2 really friendly members of staff. We wanted to head right out, for what was left of the evening, but had a good chat and were told of where we'd be best eating at that time of night. Also, we had the offer of a free breakfast, saving us a nice bit of cash. The room had the most amazing coffee machine, the best hotel coffee I've ever had, a comfy bed, great view and was warm.
Can't fault it, would happily recommend. Only a short walk to the main tourist areas, station and dam square, shorter than we thought, even after having several previous visits to the city.
