We stayed a total of three nights at the Hotel Brouwer during two visits while passing through Amsterdam and had a great time. The building is a converted canal home built in the 16th century. As with most of these old buildings in Amsterdam it has very steep stairs but it also has an elevator. Both of the rooms we stayed in overlooked the Singel canal and had postcard views, the best views were from the top floor room, no surprise there. The rooms were clean with two twin beds side by side to make a double bed, sort of. Bathrooms were were also clean and functional, one of the rooms had a tub and shower, the other just a shower. Our hosts were gracious and allowed us to check in early on both of our arrivals in Amsterdam from overnight flights. Breakfast was also good, coffee great! A computer is available to check email, etc. There was some street noise at night. Not bad on the weeknights but more on the one Friday night we stayed there. I think the street noise will be a problem anywhere in the canal district. If this is a big problem for you then staying at the Hilton may be a good idea. For me it was part of the local color. I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel Brouwer again.
