Convenient Location With Staff Willing To Go The Extra Mile
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The location is a great home base to explore Amsterdam being located a short walk (or tram ride) from Central Amsterdam and is located nearby a number of very cool restaurants and bars. It is a convenient location easy to navigate from.

The service was excellent; the staff was very friendly, personable, and willing to provide suggestions. We were even able to rent bicycles to explore Amsterdam for a very reasonable price at the hotel.

The staff went the extra mile and the Nicholaas Witsen Hotel is in a great location. I plan to return next time I'm in Amsterdam!

Comfortable, good location and great service

We stayed as a big group at this hotel for 5 nights as part of a university fieldtrip. The hotel is well situated, the breakfast is great and the staff friendly and welcoming. Supattra, the woman who runs the breakfast, is adorable and made the experience at this hotel particularly memorable.

Great location but a bit noisy at night

Stayed at Hotel Nicolaas-Witsen with my sister for 3 nights in February. The hotel is in a great location, about a 30 minute walk from Central Station or a 15 min tram ride (the best tram to get is the number 4 at Frederiksplein) so its very easy to get around and multi day tram passes can be bought at the white building across from Central station.
The rooms in the hotel were cleaned daily and the beds were comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and spoke good English and there was a good choice available for breakfast. Our only complaint was the noise of other hotel guests late at night. The walls seemed to be very thin as we heard a lot of things we would rather not have heard! But overall a good stay.

Came here last week for 3 nights it’s a lovely hotel the beds are soooo comfy and the rooms are warm! Tram 4 to get you to the centre or the station is just around the corner. Would come here again even if we did get stuck in the lift on our first night😂

A nice hotel, in a nice spot.

I stayed three nights at the Nicolaas Witsen Hotel and would stay again. The rooms are clean and well kept. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and approachable. The price was very good. The location was just a short 5 minute walk from the Vijzelgracht Metro Station (line 52). There are plenty of restaurants and stores around. And I found it to be a perfect, central location for exploring. Nice job, Nicolaas Witsen!
