Just returned from our first visit to Amsterdam and will definitely return primarily due to our excellent experience with Hotel 717. The hotel itself is wonderfully quirky with gorgeous rooms; however , it was the service and friendliness of the staff that sets it apart from the many other boutique hotels we have sampled. After a long day walking outside on a cold, rainy weekend, it was a pleasure to return to the fireplace downstairs and be offered wine and snacks. There was no haughty attitude and they treated every guest as special, including a couple that simply dropped in for a tour. Even when the hotel was full, privacy was complete and quiet (even with a toddler present). My only complaint was about the noise from the canal - we stayed in the Shubert suite and it was noisy late into the night. Maybe insulated glass is in their future plans. Stellar!
