Overview

The Review

At the nine-room Seven One Seven hotel, nothing seems to be too much trouble for the small team of immaculately starched staff. Breakfast in the candlelit courtyard-side salon is a similarly sumptuous affair, with an immense spread that starts with tropical fruit and ends with a decadent entrée (and a little nap, if you follow our advice).

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3122/prop-24606-1346275288-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The hotel makes a great base for exploring Amsterdam, the world’s most famous biking city.”}On the Prinsengracht canal, this guesthouse was formerly the home of a wealthy sugar trader (there was once a sugar mill out back), and the building has roots to the 17th century. Each of the suites is named after a cultural big-hitter (Dickens, Picasso, Liszt), and the property has kept an air of cultivated refinement and inherited prestige. Vintage furniture pieces, designer coffee-table tomes and trinkets of an era gone by won’t be for everyone, but they fit with this historical location. You might find yourself caught between the urge to curl up fireside with a crystal tumbler or get out there to explore the city’s cultural highlights from this most convenient of havens.

Aside from the in-room comforts, the hotel doesn’t offer much in the way of on-site activities. But that’s no matter, as the location is superb. Visible from the hotel’s upper reaches, the Rijksmuseum, an art museum chock-full of Dutch paintings from the Golden Age, is but a short stroll away, as is the gaudy gauntlet of neon-fronted eateries just off Leidseplein.

Fantastic relaxing weekend in Amsterdam
Reviewed 2 days ago

Room was beautiful and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Loved the fact the hotel was not too big and the service was personal. Breakfast was great as was being able to sit in the living room with a local craft beer. Our room had everything we could need and the staff sorted us some fantastic restaurant bookins

Really looked after

Been to Amsterdam around 30 times, this was a repeat visit to this fantastic, upscale guest house. Such incredible character, like being transported back in time 100 years. Tolkien Suite was huge, fantastic value for money in a near perfect location in Amsterdam. Staff fantastic especially after my little accident outside the hotel, when I had to go to hospital for checks. Could not have been kinder or more caring. Was told to stop apologizing (English tradition) as didn't want to put them out which I apologize for. Unfortunately my flight home to Gatwick was cancelled due to drone activity closing the airport all day. So not the best Amsterdam stay I've had but it won't stop me returning, especially being so fond of the Dutch people. Thank you once again.

Hands Down, Best Stay

We went to Amsterdam for a getaway long weekend and Hotel Seven on Seven completely blew us out of the water. From check-in to check-out the staff was incredible. They were not only kind and professional but had great suggestions for dining out and even a place where I could go by flowers! It felt like a bed and breakfast but with the privacy of a hotel. The room was unbelievable. High ceilings, large windows with shutters, spacious with more room to lounge than we knew what to do with, a great bed, and a huge bathroom with shower and tub. The breakfasts were incredible. In the dining room we felt like we were living a fairytale. And the morning we had breakfast in our room, the food was incredible. The location is walking distance to everything including museums. I can't say enough...If you're looking for an over-the-top stay that's unique and stylish, pick Hotel Seven one Seven.

Quaint hotel in central Amsterdam
Reviewed 3 months ago

A traditional Amsterdam canal facing building with open fires, spacious suites and friendly staff will make your stay in this interesting city all the more enjoyable. The team is only 100 yards away for trips towards the central train station or main shopping areas and check out Black restaurant only across the team rails for fantastic breakfasts and lunches.
