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.

Excellent place for a family!

We recently stayed at the Seven One Seven for a several day getaway with our 1.5 year old son. The Franz Liszt Suite was excellent! There is a separate sitting room that allows you to put the kid to bed and enjoy a glass of wine after a long day. The room itself was quiet and offered plenty of space for our little one to walk around. The hotel provides a pack-and-play crib. The staff were extremely helpful at helping you get in and out of the building with a toddler (there are stairs). The location is also fantastic for walking around the city and experiencing all the fun. I will absolutely stay here again on our next trip to Amsterdam.

Loved this hotel! It is in a great location within the Canal Ring, close to many attractions, restaurants and bars. The room had a great view over the canal and was stylish and very spacious with a very comfortable bed covered in lovely quality bedding. The bathroom had a bath and importantly a separate shower. The plentiful breakfast was delicious, served on pretty blue and white Dutch porcelain in a very nice airy room that opens onto a patio. The friendly staff were very helpful with everything we needed. Would love to return next time we are in Amsterdam.

Staying at the Seven one Seven was a remarkable experience and a pillar to a recent business trip of mine in Asmterdam.

I stayed at the Seven One Seven for 3 nights during a working weekend ans picked the Shaekspere Room (#1). From entry to farewell, the hotel’s team did everything possible to make the stay as convenient as possible: with a warm check in experience at a classically designed salon with candles, books and artpieces, checking in is not done in front of a cold reception desk but on a cozy sofa with an iPad while luggage is brought to the room. I found that really kind. Additionally, the team was so kind to leave a dutch welcome gift, wrapped nicely and left in the room.

The room itself is spacious and special: it has a Bang and Olufsen TV and stereo set to hear radio, a Nespresso coffee machine with capsules, journals and art books. The room is consistently spotlessly clean and being well looked after by the staff who are always on site. The room is illuminated by tall, large windows that surround it with multiple layers of shield. All in all the feeling is intimate, warm and stylish.

Another special experience is the hotel’s breakfast, which is intimate and full of gentleness: fresh fruit and becerages served on beautiful dutch pottery painted in blue. The breakfast is made by order and takes place in the lower platform of the hotel, aside a peaceful inner courtyard. How peaceful.

A personal morning conversation with the hotel manager around a topic that arose during my stay clarified that the hotel puts a lot of emphasis on quality of service and goes above and beyond to present an accomodation experience that’s rare to find today - even in boutique hotels. The attention to small details is definitely noticed and for me, very appreciated.

Needless to mention the central location of the hotel in the city, making it a perfect point of departure to practically anywhere by walking.

Thank you Seven One Seven, I am more than looking forward to seeing you soon on my next visit to Amsterdam.

Lovely hotel

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Nice big room, great breakfast and helpful staff. Not for those who cannot manage stairs as there is no elevator and the stairs are very steep. But a great location. I just wish that hotels would provide beds that can be separated so it is easier for friends rather than couples. Would certainly recommend this lovely hotel.

That place was really full of charm and breakfast were delicious. Well situated near the major museums. People were helpful to find restaurants and book taxi for us. Thank you so much, we will come back and give the reference to friends.
