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.

Lovely, small hotel in great location

We stayed here in July 2019 and loved the hotel. It is quite small (maybe 6 rooms) and steep stairs (like many in Amsterdam) but there was charm everywhere. Small lobby/waiting area for drinks and relaxing, very helpful and kind staff. We stayed in a suite and it was very roomy. The photo of the room on the site is outdated as the room has been updated, FYI. It's located close to everything and on a small canal, but outside of the big hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas.

We Love Seven one Seven Amsterdam

Ultimately what made this hotel even more special was the exceptional service we received by every member of this staff- helpful, kind and professional! We truly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an exceptional experience.
