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
after an initial 'boo-boo' on behalf of booking.com (they told the hotel I had booked 2 x single beds, when in fact I booked for my partner & I to have an executive room with whirlpool bath) the hotel reception staff were more than attentive and considerate. they have a range of languages and are extremely friendly. it is clean which to me is very important & you honestly couldn't ask for a better location. I even think the price is good taking into account being in a capital city centrally located. we are already planning RETURN TRIP TO AMSTERDAM AND WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE USING HOTEL ROEMER. 5 star from us*****
4 nights here. Lovely small hotel by Vondel Park. Short hop to Leidseplein. Friendly staff. Good value. Good breakfast. Our room was at the top with a bath in a vaulted turret. See you again next year!
I visited the hotel with my family, wife and two adult children, and we all loved it. Rooms are great (good size, renewed and clean), location is at walking distance of different attractions, staff is very friendly and helpful.
The street where it is located in quite and charming.
Bikes are available for rent, what I highly recommend for those who know how to behave in a city that use bikes as their major transportation method.
