“Excellent Staff and Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights in February based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Roel, Maxime, and Keese were very helpful and accommodating. The room, #34 on the 2nd floor, was fine with a spacious and modern bathroom, and the location was great being 2 blocks form the #197 bus from the airport, plus in the museum and high end fashion store district.

The only drawback was loud talking at night in the north courtyard due to a youth hostel across the way and noise from the adjacent room, (but that is understandable for an older European hotel).

Will stay at the little Hotel Fita again!

My first official trip to Amsterdam was great! Hotel Fita was apart of this greatness I experienced while visiting this vibrant city. The location is prime! This hotel is located a block away form the Van Gogh Museum/Rijksmuseum. Within 7 min walk of the Hardrock Cafe and many other parks and museums. Great staff, very generous and knowledgeable on the close attractions. Room was nice and clean with everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was great with specially made dutch pancake! We only stayed one night but it was well worth the price and I will be booking with Hotel Fita again.

A trip to a very cold and wet Amsterdam was made so much better by the warm welcome and friendlyness of the young staff at this small hotel. Our room, booked last minute, was small but very comfortable and the breakfast and 'trust' bar were both excellent. The location of this hotel for Mueum lovers or fashionistas could not be better and a short walk or tram ride gets you everywhere else. I hesitate to recommend this hotel too highly as we are looking forward to another stay there soon and don't want to find it booked up!

My wife and I couldn't ask for more from Hotel Fita. It is just a small hotel, but everything you need is there. The location is excellent, with schools, museums and luxury shops in its vicinity. It is just the right distance from where the action is. Practically 5-10 mins by tram. The major museums (Rijks and Van Gogh) are a 2-5 minute walk away. Roel and the whole staff know everything there is to know about Amsterdam and they are so friendly and helpful. The value is hard to beat also. You get a lot more than what you pay for. There are not enough nice things to say about Hotel Fita. I'd love to go back to Amsterdam, and if we do, we would definitely stay at Hotel Fita.

Its hard to add more to what other reviewers have noted, perfect location in the Museum district, lovely staff, sumptuous breakfast and we had the best room in the hotel overlooking a quiet street with a balcony.

The only thing I would add is how to get to the hotel - there is a direct bus from Schipol airport to and from the hotel. The 197 bus goes from just outside arrivals and in 20 minutes you are outside the Museum quarter and on the doorstep of the hotel - by far easier than the train into centraal and then another tram or bus, far quicker than a taxi. Hope this helps.

Normally when you arrive at a hotel to find the lobby crawling with drywall installers you brace yourself for a horrible stay. The strikingly genuine and helpful staff reassured me the mess would be done by the evening. And within hours it was transformed. Admittedly the rooms are not luxurious or the latest design, and elevator small etc. But the bed was stunningly comfortable. The hotel extremely clean, the breakfast incredibly good. Most interesting was how friendly and genuinely helpful and warm the staff was. I have stayed in 450 euro a night hotels who could learn about customer care from Fita. Perfect quiet location but easy walk to busier areas.

We stayed at the Hotel Fita between Christmas and New Year and had a great time. This was our first visit to Amsterdam. Roel was really helpful beforehand, advising on the best ways to get to the hotel (we took the 197 bus at 4 euros each). The bus stop is at the end of the street thus only a few mins walk to the hotel. The hotel is family run and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had one of the bigger rooms as we were sharing with the kids and the space was ample and everywhere was spotless. Lovely, quiet street and despite being at the front, we heard barely any noise. Breakfast was great and we loved their pancakes, a must!

Location is excellent - a few mins walk from the museums (plus the handy supermarket in the museumplein) and 10-15mins away from shopping and canals etc. We walked everywhere as the city is so compact and there was no shortage of things to do or places to eat. Roel will advise on where to avoid! Make sure you get your tickets for museums in advance tho so you don't queue for hours! We loved our stay and can't wait to come back to Amsterdam and the Hotel Fita!
