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.

Quirky small hotel - lots of personality and great location
Reviewed 6 hours ago

When visiting Amsterdam, it is important to find a hotel in a good location - access to the centrum, museums, restaurants, and shops. This hotel satisfied that criterion and provided a very whimsical room decor. Our room was large, furnished with a sofa and a large table - scaled to accommodate a medieval banquet! Large windows overlooked the canal. The only downside was that the streets in this central part of the city tend to be a bit noisy, with late-night pub-crawlers. Perhaps a room toward the back of the hotel might have afforded more peace & quiet. The common areas were inviting and, again, furnished with very eclectic and unusual pieces.

Anniversary Trip

We had a great time celebrating our 22nd Anniversary in Amsterdam and loved Hotel Seven One Seven. This is a boutique hotel with a very central location so it is very easy to visit the art galleries and other exhibitions in Amsterdam. The Picasso suite is huge and has fantastic views of the canal.

Comfort in a great location
Reviewed 4 days ago

We chose this classic canal side boutique hotel, to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary. Centrally situated and to be able to walk everywhere or catch a tram - Prinsengracht is a great location. The staff were all welcoming, very polite and helpful. The rooms were traditionally furnished and provided everything we needed. They also served delicious breakfast overlooking the courtyard. The Gustav Mahler suite was a very comfortable room, quiet and very clean with a large bathroom.
