“Loved it!”
Reviewed 3 August 2009

My husband and I recently stayed in Room 6 (Canal Room view). We loved it. The location could not have been better. It was in a quiet, scenic area yet within a couple of blocks of lots of restaurants/activity. The location itself could not have been more picturesque. The was so much old Amsterdam charm. The owners were very gracious and helpful; helped us very early in the morning clarifying our train ticket. You really feel like you're in Amsterdam when you stay here. Some cities it may not matter as much but in Amsterdam, it is wonderful to be able to have such a unique experience. I highly recommend this hotel. Wonderful breakfast as well.

We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 7 nights in July in Room 6 and I cannot speak highly enough of this establishment.

It is located in a lovely and quiet neighborhood about 5 minutes walk from Rembrandtplein. As others have said the location is excellent and we were able to walk to all of the major sites with no problem. Furthest sites are maybe 25 mins away walking (Centraal station and Anne Frank House) On days we were feeling lazy we caught the tram (located 2 streets over) to our destined site. Tram cost is 2,60 Euro per person for a 1 time ride.

The room was gorgeous with a canal view and was located up one flight of truly steep stairs from the main lobby area. We were totally intimidated by these stairs at first but you do get used to them and the proprietors did help us with our luggage. A comfortable queen sized bed with nice pillows and bedding was a true treat as well as the lovely antique marble table and leather chars we sat at each morning in front of the windows to enjoy our breakfast. Bathroom was equipped with a nice sized shower and was not cramped at all. Good water pressure, clean, and bright, and nice towels, too! We did not really hear any noise at all from the other guests or the street although it is a fairly well used street given its proximity to the Rembrandt square. I would not give this a second thought when considering this hotel because unless you are the world's lightest sleeper you will sleep like a baby. Closet shelving is a bit narrow but lots of shelves to use and also a rod to hang clothes was available. Closets were lockable with lovely old fashioned keys and though the room did not have a safe we felt comfortable leaving valuables locked in the closet or in the hotel safe located with the proprietors.

The breakfast. Oh my. The best part of our experience, I'd say. Delivered to our room each morning at 8 AM (you can select the delivery time when you check in) on a tray loaded with 2 croissants, 2 different types of bread, scones or coffee cake, sliced meats and cheese,oranges, bananas, or sometimes apples, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee or tea, yogurt and a variety of jams. Presentation was on china, a different pattern each day, and absolutely lovely. The breads were warm and fresh, fruit was ripe and the coffee strong and delicious. We felt like we were feasting each morning. Due to the size of this breakfast we did not need to eat again until dinner, which we usually had around 9 PM at one of the restaurants in the Rembrandtplein.

Our room was 150 Euros per night including breakfast which I feel was a great deal and on the one day we did not take breakfast, which we advised them of in advance, they deducted the cost of breakfast from our nightly rate (20 euros). Free wifi was also available in our room.

Please consider this hotel for your trip to Amsterdam as it is a true gem and will make your trip memorable and special.

This must be one of the most interesting boutique hotel we have stayed in recently. For our first time in Amsterdam, we have chosen the seven bridges based entirely on the strength of recommendations from tripadvisor..

Location wise, this hotel is located in the canal belt, about 2 km from the train station where we arrived. As such, it is about 20 minutes walk along the beautiful canals to places of interest such a s rijksmuseum as well as van gogh museum. Many other places of interest are also within walking distance such as the hash museum and the RLD. We walked practically everywhere and did not avail ourselves to the public transport but seeing the many trams lines that we crossed about a mere 3-5 minutes walk away, you shouldn't be too far from access.

We requested for the canal view room 7 which was gorgeously decorated with period furniture. Little did we realise that the arm chairs we were sitting on were 17th century antiques! Room was a bit on the small side but adequate (considering that this is Europe afterall). toilets and bath are adequate and spotless in cleanliness. The bed in this room is a queen size which some may find a bit small. The room is air conditioned which works well for some of the warmer nights. View from the room is gorgeous and despite facing the road in front, the little human and vehicular traffic is fairly well insulated and we were not bothered by traffic noises or noises from late night revelers.

This room is reached by a tiny and steep circular fire-escape like stairs. can be difficult to maneuver if you have large and heavy luggage which we did. But the owners were around to give a helping hand.

Breakfast is served daily by the owners themselves. you can request for it at a pre-determined time which is useful if you need a lie in after a heavy night. Breakfast is served on nice china-ware from the likes of villeroy and boch. Includes croissont, scones and sliced bread, yoggurt, cold cuts and cheese and fruits. choice of tea of coffee is available. We asked for Earl Grey tea and although they said they don;t have it , they still serve it to us on the first morning!

also included is a 20 inch flat screen TV which includes many channels including CNN and BBC world. Internet is Free of charge and fairly stable over wifi.

In summary, we will strongly recommend this hotel to those seeking a unique place to stay in a wonderful city. Afterall, when was the last time you sleep in a room decorated with bona fide antiques with all the mod cons too?

My husband and I stayed at the Seven Bridges in Room 6 from June 21-27. This fabulous hotel was the perfect home-base for our week long stay in Amsterdam. Room 6 was an absolutely gorgeous room! We found both the room and the bathroom to be spacious, the bed was comfy and the view from our room of the Reguliersgracht canal and all of the bridges was beautiful. Gunter and Pierre, the proprietors of this hotel, are wonderful hosts! Very helpful and answered any questions we had. They delivered a delicious breakfast to our room every morning, up the steep staircase (which was so impressive with heavy trays of food!). The location of the hotel is perfect. It's in a quiet neighborhood, but only a few minutes walk to several dining, nightlife and museum areas. Rembrandtplein is only two blocks away and the Leidseplein is about a 10 minute walk. Dam Square was also only about a 5-10 minute walk. The hotel is central to so many things without feeling like you are in the main tourist areas. There is also a wonderful local restaurant a few doors down from the hotel called Cafe Hooghoudt. Try it at least once, it was delicious! We really loved every minute of our stay at the Seven Bridges and will definitely return on our next visit to Amsterdam!

Amsterdam is a favourite place of mine... and to stay at a hotel like Seven Bridges was like finding the needle in the haystack. What a lovely atmosphere, service & location.
My boyfriend & me stayed over the weekend... and we could not have picked a better place to stay at. A beautiful room (nr 7) with a view over the canal & the bridges..

The first day as we arrived back to the room after a walk in town... a vase with 20 red roses greeted us in the room. Just like that... a sweet treat from the owners.
Yes... at this little hotel the owners really put their heart & soal into what they do.

We can truly recommend a stay at this little "pearl" of Amsterdam.
Enjoy...

Just got back home after a 3 night stay in Amsterdam, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, Seven Bridges Hotel was the perfect place to stay. Beautufully decorated, with antique furniture, art and mirrors.
Lovely staff, very polite and helpful, use of hotel computers is a nice touch.
The location is fantastic, just a few steps from Rembrant Square, where the local bars and restaurants are fantastic.
If you want a taste of authentic Amsterdam, in a small, well run family hotel, then seven bridges is for you, we cannot recommend enough. wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This gem of a hotel / B&B is one of our favorite places that we have ever stayed anywhere in the world. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the southern canals of Amsterdam near the Rembrandtsplein. You can walk from here to most attractions and also has convenient access to the trams & buses. The hotel gets its name from its location - it has a view of 7 different canals. We stayed in room B, which is in a separate building from the hotel and is essentially your own apartment on the ground floor (no narrow stairs to climb!) with your own separate keyed entrance. There are wall-to-wall windows (with full curtains) in this room, with a lovely view of the canals and bridges in front of the building. We paid only €130 per night, which is quite a bargain for Amsterdam/Europe. Our room did not include the breakfast but we did have free Wifi which came in handy when we wanted to look up attractions, directions, weather forecast, etc. We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely stay here the next time we're in Amsterdam.
