“Ask for dinner!”
Reviewed 5 June 2010

Marooned in Amsterdam (ha!) by the volcano in mid-April, I found my way to the Brouwer, a lovely place I'd been before. Personable staff always make me feel welcome and even at home there, with Ellen cooking dinner for the rest of us similarly stuck. The wonderful canal-front dining room isn't usually used except for breakfast, but Ellen says she can be talked into dinner if there's demand. Excellent Dutch-American inn fare, and well worth it just to eat family style by their great windows.

Really nice view from room of a canal and trees. Only 5 minutes walk from Centraal station, Red light area and Dam Square. Good value and it also includes breakfast - juice, boiled egg, roll, croissant and a cup of tea. Lovely staff. Room was spotless and decent sized bathroom.

Stayed here with my husband the first week in March for 3 nights and loved every bit of it. The hotel is very charming and exactly what we had been expecting and hoping for - I was even more delighted when shown to the cute attic room with it's amazing views (who cares that the double bed is two singles pushed together - this is quite normal in Europe). If you want a characterless, could be anywhere in the world when inside as they all look the same kind of hotel then this isn't for you, but if you want to stay somewhere that is clean, cared for, superbly located and is honest to its surroundings then this is definitely the place for you. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast set you up for the day and all in all I would say it's somewhere I would reccomend.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights here. The hotel is not fancy, but the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the location is terrific. You are not far from the central train station and just 2 blocks from a main tram line. The canal views are nice. The room is small, and our double room was two twins pushed together. But it was a convenient way to see Amsterdam. If you want luxury and a lot of services, this isn't your hotel, but if you just want a reasonably priced hotel in a good location in Amsterdam, this is the place.

booked this hotel for a 3 night stay as wanted typical dutch house on canal. Location was excellent with fantastic views of the Singel Canal,but room and service basic. Definitely a quirky hotel which is very different from your normal run of the mill chain hotel -just not sure location is enough to justify this hotel's rating on trip advisor. We were on 3rd floor, up in the attic so views great but it was a long way up when the lift didn't work- which was on a daily basis. Breakfast was the same everyday. There was no choice- boiled egg with cheese and rolls. Hotel relies on location to sell rooms. Staff need to be more vigilant about service quality. Don't think I would stay again!

The staff were friendly and courteous, the location was superb, only a few minutes walk from the station and within easy walking distance of the city centre. We had great vews of the canal from our room. This was at the top of the building, the only draw back was a degree of noise from the plumbing.
We loved the old fashioned breakfast room, and the rolls, croissaants, boiled eggs, and cheese provided were excellent. We would certainly go there again
