“Great hotel in a beautiful city”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I got back yesterday, from a 3 night stay at the Brouwer and I was very impressed. Situated in a very pleasant area, only 10 minutes walk from Centraal Station and over looking one of the many canals, it is a charming little place with a very homely feel to it. My single room (Mesdag) was small but perfect for my needs and had a great view over the canal. The room was clean, as was the bathroom and the linen was changed on a daily basis. There is not a great deal of storage space but again, just enough for a solo traveller. There was a writing desk, a bed side cabinet, complete with lamp and clock and there was TV with a couple of English language channels. The breakfast was good and you were given a warm crumpet, croissant and bread roll, with butter and jam. Coffee and orange juice were also provided.The owners were extremely hospitable and always had time for a chat or to give some advice about ther city.

In a city where decent accommodation seems to come at a price, at 60 euros a night, the Hotel Brouwer respresents very good value for money.

I really liked Amsterdam and will definitely be going back and the Brouwer will certainly be the first place I check for a room.

Hotel in great location, walking distance from Central Station along the Singel, great view from rooms. Rooms are small, clean and reasonably priced, less than 100euros. Breakfast not great, rolls, cheese, hard boiled eggs, juice and coffee.
NO CREDIT CARDS, cash only! They speak English.

Room Tip: They only have 8 rooms, so book early!

Great location in central Amsterdam, 10 minutes from the train station, the Brouwer combines an Old World feeling with the comforts necessary to make it a very pleasant stay. We enjoyed the room - clean, overlooking the picturesque Singel Canal - the satisfying Continental breakfast, and the warm attention of owner and Argentine staff. The free WiFi worked great. The Brouwer made our stay in Amsterdam unforgettable. .

This is the most beautiful little hotel. It has character and style. Our room was superb - tucked up at the top of the hotel overlooking the beautiful canal, sun streamed in the window and we just wanted to move in permanently. I fell in love with this hotel and with Amsterdam.

A few minutes walk from the train station and well located for all attractions. The hotel has 8 rooms each named after one of the famous artists. We stayed in the Van Gogh which overlooked the Singel canal and was very comfortable. A very nicely served breakfast with a large pot of fresh coffee is included in the price. I would definately use this hotel again.

This was our, I don't remember how many times, stay at Hotel Brouwer. We've been there 12-15 times probably. This time we were in the Mondriaan room on the 3rd (top) floor for 3 nights. The hotel is in a wonderful location right on the Singel canal. The staff are super friendly. The room is large with a large bathroom as well. We had a few minor inconveniences this time (trash not emptied, foot towel for shower not replaced, toilet paper left empty) but these weren't enough to annoy us. We were able to get the TP replaced via reception (the others were minor enough). Breakfast is great with lots of bread, cheese, preserves, and a hard boiled egg if so desired. They've got a free Internet computer to use in the lobby and employees are quite knowledgeable about the city and it sites and facilities.

Hotel Brouwer seems to be overrated. It´s alright but not that good.
I stayed 3 nights in June in the single room called Hals
It´s right in the center of A´dam, near to shopping and nightlife.That´s the best.
But it´s very noisy all night long and the windows are thin.
The room was very small and the floor had settled at the corner, in fact I fell out of bed due to this the first night.
The breakfast is simple
I´ll remeber it but I wouldn´t stay there again.
