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.
