The Flying Pancake was a great place to stay for a weekend break in Amsterdam. We had the Cook suite up at the top of the house; over 2 floors which was beautiful. The room had loads of facilities. The little kitchen had a great coffee maker; there was a range of teas. We got a list to choose our breakfast which was delivered to outside our door each morning and then we enjoyed a relaxed meal in our suite. TV, great music selection, selection of complementary drinks. Very convenient for tram and an easy walk in to the Niewemarkt and the Western Canal ring.

We stayed at the Flying Pancake during our stay in Amsterdam. Claudia was very accommodating and gave good directions from the central station as well as good restaurant information. Our room was very well equipped with everything we needed. We had 24 hour coffee or tea available and the room was divided into a sleeping area, sitting area and breakfast area. The shower and bathroom area was outstanding. The steam shower is a do not miss. The music system is very good and the selections of CDs is good. The room was very clean with lots of room to hang things up and places for our suitcases. The beds were comfortable, however, they creak when you roll over. The breakfast is delivered right out side your door with your order, which you fill out the night before. The Pancake is a little out of the main stream of things, but not a bad walk. Also a tram stop is just around the corner.

This was a return to one of my favourite cities and staying in the Captain's Suite at The Flying Pancake, made it feel like a cosy, welcome home cuddle.

Prior to arrival, arrangements and payments were handled smoothly and efficiently. We were able to confirm our arrival time thus ensuring that Claudia was available to greet us.

As others have stated in previous reviews, yes, the location isn't directly on a canal and that is why we booked. With the Magere Brug nearby, it is a quick stroll to the nearby and lively Rembrandtplein, a plethora of eateries on Utrechtsestraat or the picturesque houses along Prinsengracht. Or walk up to Waterlooplein to catch the Tram or Metro to Centraal Station.

It was a treat to be able to laze on the sofa with the french windows open, listening to a selection of music or watching a TV. Much more preferable to noisy canal tours. For your convenience, there is an i-pod docking station, a CD player plus a DVD player if you don't want to venture out.

Wi-Fi was available thoughout our stay and the breakfast was substantial enough to set us up for our days of adventuring. Upon our return, it was a treat to try out the steam room. Bliss!

Would we book again? Yes!

Room Tip: This is five storey building built in 1730, so expect steep stairs (which is part of the charm) to get to your accommodation. The Captain's Suite is laid out on one level.

My husband and I spent our first two nights in Amsterdam at the Flying Pancake. Claudia was extraordinarily helpful from the moment that we made our reservations through checkout. The suite is spacious and the breakfast (delivered in a basket each morning) was the best we had on our vacation. While the property itself is off the beaten path (and therefore quiet at night), it is only a short walk to bustling main streets. A tram stop is also located across the street. If we return to Amsterdam, we would definitely stay here again!

It was a good location, we felt as thought we were staying in Amsterdam not just in the tourist section.

we found the small touches were missing. We arrived at pm to drop off bags and said we would be back before dinner and we were assured the room would be cleaned and refreshed for us.

We couldn't notice any difference with the room, no milk, no soap, no firewood.

We were a little disappointed with small touched in there being no firewood as we had really looked forward to the fire on the one night wed assigned to being our stay in evening. (after we were explained it wasn't included. which should have been explained. and at $145 euro a night you'd think it would be included). Coffee machine which looked great, didnt work :( there was a cotton tip container with no cotton tips, small touches like this were unfortunately noticeable.

Otherwise we were happy with breakfast and our overall stay.

Room Tip: great couples room, lovely lay out and great to sit with the french windows open on the couch
