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
Stayed for a three night break in early March. The hotel location is excellent in a quiet road close to the museum quarter and Leidseplein which is a convenient transport hub and has plenty of places to eat or have a drink. The breakfast was really good and set us up for the day’s sightseeing.
The staff at the hotel were excellent and really helpful. The only reason I didn’t give five stars was the housekeeping which forgot to clean our room one day. I mentioned this to the guy on reception (Klein) and he was very apologetic and helpful and sorted out replacement drinks for us). They were happy to store our luggage on our last day after checking out so we could do some more sights without having to drag our cases round.
Would definitely stay here again if I was in Amsterdam.
We got a room off the garden. Everything was so pleasant. The room was magnificent. We could not have been happier with out stay at Hotel Roemer! The one negative thing was the shower drain was a little clogged, but the staff fixed it right away and it was fine after that. DEFINITELY will not be the last time we stay there. Thanks to the wonderful staff for being to accommodating and helping us store our bags for a bit before and after our stay so we could roam the city without lugging our suitcases around!
The Roemer hotel was very accommodating and very clean the staff were so nice and went above and beyond for us we enjoyed our stay and it is so central very close to the Bulldog and many other big attractions easily located.
I enjoyed my stay here. I give it five stars because it exceeded my expectations, had a lively little balcony, spacious bathroom and the staff was super nice. Location is excellent ! You can walk anywhere and the the street is not noisy. Safe area as well.
We stay at this lovely hotel for a long weekend to celebrate my birthday with my husband. This is the perfect hotel! Perfect location, amazing staff and really quiet to make sure you will get good night after long day. We will cone back for sure :)
