“A Step beyond”
Reviewed 25 August 2010

We were an extended family of 8 - four couples, all adult, so we occupied four rooms. The rooms are nice, clean, free coffee and tea, nice large bathrooms; Internet access is available for free; Breakfast is included and delicious. But the standout is the service. Pauline, the owners daughter and front desk manager, went above and beyond to accomodate us during our two night stay. She not only took care to find a local dentist for my mother-in-law immediately upon our arrival, but also provided Van Gogh tickets and took care of arranging our transportation to join our cruise ship on our departure day - and when the driver wasn't there on time, immediately called and had the situation in hand. I can't say enough great things about the advantages of staying in a family owned hotel. Hotel Fita gets 5 stars!!!

After reading all the wonderful reviews about Hotel Fita, we decided to stay there. And we absolutely loved it. The hotel is located in the famous Museum District with both Van Gogh and the Rij museums nearby, only a short walk. The trams are only a block away and take you to any destination.
The breakfast was wonderful. We especially loved the home made pancakes. Computer use is free. The staff is very warm and welcoming. The owner has a great sense of humor. Overall stay in this hotel and you wont regret it.

While the reception, breakfast and free computer use was wonderful, I'm afraid we can't say the same about the room. They seem to pride themselves on the fact that they are updated and clean but I think they need to take a hard look at themselves. The bathroom had public restroom type soap dispensers and this bizarre huge contraption to get a plastic cup. There was old dried up soap in the shower's soap dish. There were little bugs on the bathroom floor and really, would it be too much to get a trashcan in the bathroom? A good place to start would be to vacuum the steps entering the hotel...first impressions. Totally underwhelmed.

The owners and staff were charming and couldn't have been more helpful. On arrival we were told among other useful information that the hotel held a stock of tickets to both the Van Goch and Rijksmuseum (both round the corner) so that their guests could avoid queuing .... and didn't we feel smug when we sauntered straight past at least an hours' queue for each at 10.30 am!
Our room was clean and modern, complete with Nespresso machine (but sadly no George Clooney). I would have liked some way of having a night-cap in the room, perhaps a mini-bar.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Fita for four nights in early August. We based our choice on reviews from Trip Advisor members. What a find! Pauline and her sidekick (father) Hans were the most accommodating hoteliers we have ever run across. We arrived at 8:30 a.m., earlier than we anticipated. Our room was ready in 10 minutes, Hans put out a dozen red roses, champagne and snacks for our honeymoon welcome! What a way to start our vacation! The room and bath were very large, comfortable bed and all the amenities you could wish for. Nespresso machine, teapot, iron and board, free wi-fi and use of computers, free LD calls to U.S., tickets available to the Van Gogh and Rijks museums, all questions answered with patience and smiles. They even did our laundry! Last, but not least was the breakfast. Eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, fresh squeezed juice, croissants and pastries, delicious cheeses with breads and those fabulous Dutch pancakes. We truly didn't need to eat again until dinner! Hans is a hoot and Pauline is patient and kind. We will return to Amsterdam and would not think to stay any where else.

We were very lucky to obtain a room in this wonderful, centrally-located, family-run boutique hotel as it appears to be very well known and much sought after. The rooms are immaculately clean and the delicious breakfasts truly kickstart your day in Amsterdam. The owners and staff are delightful and make you feel very much at home with their personal service and genuine interest in your well-being. They really went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable and easy as possible. The glowing reports in Trip Advisor that triggered our interest were not exaggerations at all ... they were all true and we were very happy there. My wife really enjoyed the in-room coffee machine but it was the occasional basket of washing done gratis by the hotel staff that really sold her! We would definitely stay at Hotel Fita again should we return to Amsterdam.

Based largely upon Tripadvisor comments from others we chose the Hotel Fita during recent trip to Amesterdam. We were not disappointed. Great location, wonderful staff (they even did a load of laundry for us). Very helpful. Owner joined us for breakfast one morning and he's wonderfully helpful - plotted out day trip for us. However, he told us he had plans to sell hotel so let's hope new owners maintain same level of service and attention. Get the A room with balconey - lots of fresh air. If you wonder whether Amsterdam is worth the trip by all means GO. It far exceeeded our expectations - amazing City. More canals than Venice and everyone was wonderful.
