“Great, friendly hotel”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room facilities were fantastic and we particularly liked the trust bar of snacks and drinks downstairs as well as the free wifi/use of computers. The breakfast was excellent and included a good range of food. Pancakes were offered every morning and cooked fresh for each table.
The best thing about the hotel is the staff, who are really friendly and personable, without being over-familiar. They were very helpful and spoke excellent English. Although the hotel is not in the centre of town it is right by many museums and is easily reachable by the very regular trams (central train station is only 15mins away). Overall, I was really pleased with our choice of hotel and would recommended it to anyone.

With a warm welcome awaiting, we returned to Fita in November. We expected to enjoy our stay but weren't expecting to match that "first impression." We were wrong. It was every bit as good as the 1st stay and we're trying to figure out how to return again. We were again impressed by the warm welcome, helpfulness and cleanliness -- all top notch. We were looking forward to the generous and delicious breakfast weeks before our arrival and it did not disappoint - besides all the other goodies don't miss the cheese - best of our trip (as were the pancakes and bacon and eggs). The location is great (easily walkable) for the museums and sights and it's very easy to catch trams and buses. Roel made great suggestions for affordable luggage for the trip home (things never fit at the end of the trip!) and we found a nearby German porcelain store for more last minute Christmas presents. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby of varied prices. We couldn't have been happier. Oh yes, their suggestions of taxi companies is spot on. We forgot and paid too much from the train station but were again pleased when going to the airport using the suggested company. They will be doing some freshening in the rooms in Jan & Feb so we can't wait for the results. Our thanks to Roel, family and staff for another memorable and stellar stay - best of our November trip! (yes, again) and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Be sure to let them know your priorities for your room - space, quiet, etc. We love the front with...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Fita 7 nights from Dec. 27 to Jan.3, 2013. You can size up a hotel pretty well in seven nights of sleeping and eating there, and interacting with the staff. We liked Hotel Fita a lot and we can tell you why;

Value: Hotel Fita is good Value for your money. Amsterdam is an expensive place for lodging, and for everything else too! You are not going to find much of anything decent for under 2 hundred bucks a night.. Hotel Fita cost us just a little over two hundred a night and we considered it a fair price for their accommodations in an expensive city like Amsterdam.

Facilities: Our room, number 14 on the first floor, was compact in the sleeping area (like many European hotels) but more than adequate for our needs. We spent most of our time out of the room anyway. The room has high ceilings (which made it seem more spacious), lots of windows, was quiet, comfortable and had great room darkening curtains. It even had a ceiling fan above the bed. Surprisingly, the bathroom was large. There is free phone service to the States, free laundry (a real life saver on longer trips that allows you to travel lighter) and a great breakfast. Breakfast was all the usual stuff of bread, cereals and fruit, but also included yogurt, great Dutch cheeses, scrambled eggs, juice, coffee & cappuccino, and delicious Dutch Pancakes upon request. The staff at breakfast was helpful, attentive and friendly.

Staff: The Hotel Fita staff is overall young, enthusiastic and cheerful. They purchased the hotel 2 years ago and have been updating it over time. They are VERY helpful and will go out of their way to help you with recommendations and directions.

Location: Hotel Fita is located in the Museumplein, one block from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. (FYI: Right now the Van Gogh Museum is closed for renovations but the best of Van Gogh has been moved to the Hermitage Museum, a quick 20-25 minute walk. The city has even placed a red rope line above the street to lead you to the Hermitage from the Van Gogh while it is under renovation. Just follow the "red line" rope. Check on-line to see when the Van Gogh re-opens in 2013.) We walked everywhere in Amsterdam or took the hop-on hop-off canal bus from the hotel Fita area. Hotel Fita is nicely situated for touring the city.

In conclusion, let me summarize by telling you what Hotel Fita is, and what it is not. It is not 5 star fancy. If you need 5 star fancy, you should go someplace else and bring lots and lots of money with you. Instead, Hotel Fita is very nice, well run, well located, comfortable and reasonably priced. And that is what we look for in a hotel.

I spent one night ib this hotel, just after Christmas. I felt like in a family pension or flat, very warmly welcome. The room were clean and the breakfast were abondant (sweet and good pancakes). More over, the hotel is very well located, 5 mn far from several museums and only 30 mn from the airport (by bus, 4€). In brief, I recommend this hotel.

The hotel is a suitable solution during your trip in Amsterdam for several reasons: the strategic position - close to the most interesting sites of the downtown, the convient price, the warm welcome given by the staff, the abundant breakfast and the functionality of the rooms. Hotel Fita is definitely an excellent choice.

Recently stayed at Hotel Fita and had a great stay here. Chose to stay because of the excellent reviews and was surprised that it excelled itself. The staff could not have been more helpful and someone was always available to help with any queries ( or even print off our boarding passes ! )
The room was very clean and comfortable ( great bed ) and the breakfasts provided much variety, cooked and cold items, good quality, abundant and well set out.
We really liked it at Fita and would definitely return and recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam. The team at Fita are highly enthusiastic and add to the enjoyment of such a great city.

Room Tip: Book early as you can as it is proving more and more popular.

We arrived in Amsterdam on a wet and snowy December morning for our 30th wedding anniversary as we had been there for our honeymoon back in 1982. We took a 25 euro cab from the central station because the weather was so awful. As soon as we arrived at Hotel Fita all our chills vanished as we had the warmest, most helpful and informative welcome from the young man at the reception desk. He gave us a map and lots of information about places to walk, eat, drink and visit .
Our room was light and airy with french windows. The bathroom was large with a very wide and deep bath which was blissful after the snow. Museums and the Concertgebouw are very close and trams 2 and 5 whisk you through the city. The hotel has an "honesty bar" which is a nice touch and typical of how guests are welcomed and respected. Oh and the pancakes at breakfast are un believably delicious!
We have seen a couple of negative reviews about the hotel but nothing in them was remotely similar to our experience. We are definitely going back.
