Curled up in an artfully worn leather armchair beneath a midcentury Arco lamp, and looking out at one of the typically serene courtyard gardens of the old-money Oud-Zuid district, one might be tempted to forgo all of Amsterdam’s cultural treasures in favor of the modern fireside comfort of Hotel Roemer’s living room area. Framed and signed gig posters and carefully collected curios demonstrate that this is more than decorating by numbers; the place has character.
Bed and Bath
Upstairs, things are less rocker-made-good and more classic townhouse – think monogrammed carpets, pleasantly muted paint jobs and smart black marble. Art has been procured from respected local practitioners in abstraction. Bathrooms are well proportioned, especially given the tricksy dimensions of a property like this. Bedwise we’re talking the full fluffy cloud experience, with pillows the size of your average canal house.
A full-on restaurant would be too much to ask in a hidey-hole hotel of this size; instead Hotel Roemer has poured its resources into a well-above-average room service menu (the humble club sandwich turns out to be a hearty meal) that only intensifies the homey vibe. Breakfast is also a hands-on affair, with a hot and cold buffet supplemented by eggs cooked to order, all overlooking the charming garden. Alternatively, you can head to its sister property Hotel Vondel (just a minute’s walk away) for lunch or dinner in restaurant JOOST Eat & Drink.
How to Get There
Lovely hotel in a great, central and quiet location.
The common areas were lovely and our bedroom was nice.
In the bedroom the hanging rail was too high and the light there didn’t work. Two stands for luggage would be helpful. It would have been good if there was decaff coffee.
The bathroom was a little tired, the shower flooded the bathroom if the volume of water was more than a little. There was also a gap between the floor and the door.
These flaws weren’t major though, we will definitely stay again.
The staff are fantastic, especially Mortis, Alexander and Dominique. They promptly answered my queries ahead of time. Mortis’ restaurant recommendations were superb and he booked a table for us. Dominique fixed my suitcase when the zip got stuck, she was amazing.
The three of them are really a credit to you, please pass on our many thanks for their warm welcomes and wonderful assistance!
Im a big fan of small hotels, this one is smtj from the other planet. I got the basic room and it was way better than most of the 5* suites Ive ever been at. The staff is relatively small but they make everything feel so familiar and close.
Had a lovely stay in the Roemer Hotel. We were in the small double, bed was comfortable and nice bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic, not cheap but still worth it. You can order both buffet and a la carte. Staff were helpful and location to museums and transport links excellent. Lovely stay.
Very nice hotel, with a great location. Easy to get to trams, but back one block so it’s on a nice and quiet.
Out room was in a loft, with huge ceilings and plenty of room. Excellent bed and huge towels.
4 person jacuzzi in bathroom.
Very safe and friendly.
It’s 830am on Easter Monday (!!) and we are woken to the sound of drilling! Walk outside and realized the building next door is under renovation/construction! We are in the newer annex of the hotel on the other side of the street from the lobby. The building under renovation has a large garbage bin and a portable toilet in front of it. So ask for a room that is not on that side of the hotel if you are here for vacation and want to relax.
Apart from that the hotel is very nice with high ceilings and very modern and clean. Professional staff.
