We stayed here in July 2013. The Check in staff were friendly and helpful. They asked us whether this was our first trip to Amsterdam (yes, it was), and immediately gave us a city map before we even asked, and pointed out the locations of all the attractions in Amsterdam.
The free wifi in the room had good signal. Bathroom had good quality shampoo/ shower gel & body lotion, the toilet paper was 4-ply! And they also provided shoe shine sponges (very useful). There was an espresso machine in the room (too bad we're not coffee fans).
The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk from everywhere - the Central train station, the Dam square shopping streets, the famous red light district, the Anne Frank museum, the flower market....
You have to walk up a few short steps to get from the street level to the lobby. There is a lift from the lobby level to the rooms.
Service is great. Almost immediately after I booked a triple room via Booking.com, the hotel sent me an email asking for my preferences (3 single beds or a queen + 1 single). None of the other hotels that I booked with did this.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Directly on the Keizersgracht, one of the most picturesque canals in the heart of Amsterdam, you will find Sebastian's, a contemporary three-star hotel with a unique and sophisticated design and atmosphere. Whether you are in the capital city for business or to enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Amsterdam, Sebastian's is the place to be. The location alone is worth the stay: a stone's throw from the Jordaan district, with its numerous cafés and restaurants, and Haarlemmerstraat, home to a wide variety of shops and a number of colourful Amsterdam outdoor markets. The hotel bar also boasts a unique and charming atmosphere. It is a ‘real' bar with a contemporary, trendy design and a meeting place for both young and old, who come here to enjoy a delicious cappuccino, cold beer or glass of one of the wide range of wines served. All of this can be enjoyed in a relaxed, jazzy setting. ... more less
