a lot of character. all rooms face canal. Walking distance from train station. Red light district several blocks away but right next door was you guessed it a red lighted window. So probably not for families with small kids but then neither is Amsterdam..

Room Tip: tiny elevator. One person and one luggage at a time. or two people no luggage.

We've stayed here so many times; it's the only hotel we stay at in Amsterdam. This time we were again in the Mondrian room on the top floor during the third weekend of February. It's my favorite room as it's on the corner and has a larger bathroom than the floors below. And lots of 1/2 timbering in the room. No complaints/concerns about our stay. We'll be back in August, then again next February, etc. While Brouwer, like many hotels, has raised its prices, that's to be expected. The Netherlands is an expensive country for hotels; Brouwer's costs are fine for Holland. I'm sure you can pay less elsewhere and I know you can pay considerably more. For a reasonable cost, friendly service/personnel, and a more than adequate breakfast, stay here. If you don't, that's cool too as it makes it easier for me to book a room when I want to.

We stayed at the Hotel Brouwer for two nights in the Bosch room. When we first arrived, we were somewhat skeptical. The bathroom was on a different floor from the bedroom and the floors were slanted! But after settling in we grew to appreciate the charm of our room and realized that we were getting a truly unique Amsterdam experience. The bathroom was recently renovated and nice, although the shower didn't seem to quite switch between the showerheads properly. The bedroom was very large, with a stunning view of the canals and was very well furnished. The wardrobe and bedframe were antique and charming. The staff were also friendly. In particular, the lady at the desk in the evening was extremely kind and helpfully provided restaurant recommendations. Overall I would recommend the Hotel Brouwer for anyone looking for a very different hotel experience. Perhaps not the best for someone with reduced mobility as the stairs are very steep and there are many of them, or for someone looking for a more traditional hotel. But if you are looking for something different and with character then you can't do better than the Hotel Brouwer.

We stayed at Hotel Brouwer in early January. We were a group of 6 (3 couples).

Two of our rooms were on the 3rd floor and one room was on the 2nd floor. Every room had a beautiful view and we were all able to access the free wifi without any problems. The rooms were all different and we had a very comfortable stay.

We booked a few months in advance via email from South Africa and did not need to pay anything until the day we checked out.

We only have one complaint. My parents arrived 2 days after us. Their plane from Germany arrived very early and we had informed Hotel Brouwer about this when we booked and they said it wouldn't be a problem for my parents to arrived before 9h00. When my parents arrived at the hotel, the staff informed them that their room was not ready yet, but they could store their bags in the office and wait in the lobby until we all came downstairs. Since breakfast was already being served to other guests, my dad asked the lady organising the breakfast if he could please have a cup of coffee (he was even prepared to pay for it). The lady was extremely rude and told him to go find coffee somewhere down the street (even though she had a huge flask of filter coffee nearby). As paying guests we did not expect to be treated in such a way.

The rest of the staff that we met were lovely, helpfull and very friendly! They also responded promptly to our emails, which we appreciated.

Apart from the rude lady who works at the Hotel Brouwer, we loved our stay and we would stay there again next time we are in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor, that was you don't hear the creaking of the floor from the room above. Be careful not to turn the heaters up too high, as they are very effective and will overheat the rooms. Be careful when showering, as it is very easy to wet the entire bathroom floor in the process.

Built in 1652 and Converted to lodging in 1914, this cozy little hotel has location, views and a warm and friendly staff. I have stayed here many times and still enjoy coming back. The views from the rooms over the Single Canal are beautiful; love the water and the houseboats.
Breakfast is very comfortable in a well-lit breakfast room appointed with old artwork of the area. Typical light Dutch breakfast: Soft boiled egg, cheese, rolls, great coffee or tea.
This hotel has an elevator, which is great for the upper floors. Suggest top floors, since the old floors can be noisy from your neighbors. Not bad, just bring ear plugs if you are sensitive.
Location faces the Jourdan district with wonderful shops and restaurants; it is also where many professionals live. At your back is the Red Light district one block away. I guess this gives you choices' you are right on the edge of both.
I like the proximity to the main train station, only a five minute walk. Since I was working, the location was convenvient. Walking disctance from Trams and thus access to all of the region.
I will be back...

Room Tip: Bring your own Shampoo and Soap. Top floor. Try Joselitos Spanish Cafe nearby. You can avoid Red light district by walking up Single Canal Street. Good for short stay; 1-4 days
