Life very small, but added to the quirkyness of the hotel. Three couples - rooms all great. Very clean. Breakfast plentiful and service excellent. Easy walking to trams, main train station, red light district, cafes. Able to leave... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Brouwer during our first trip to Amsterdam in May of 2009. The Brouwer is a quaint canal house conveniently located in the heart of Singel 83. We stayed in the Vermeer room for three nights and we were very comfortable during our stay. Our room was spacious (for European standards), clean, and... More

The Hotel Brouwer is an old canal house that looks somewhat shabby and "gone to seed," although it is clean and has a convenient location. It serves a nice Dutch breakfast, although the coffee was below average--much less good than one gets in almost any cafe. If the hotel decor were a little more imaginative and artistic, and had fresh... More

We stayed at Hotel Brouwer on a recent trip to Amsterdam. It cost about 95 euros, which when converted to dollars was about $135 at that time. The hotel is small, but our room was fairly large, very clean, had a recently updated bathroom and small flat screen TV. We stayed in the Vermeer Room, which had a nice view... More

After a seven and one half hour flight we arrived at the Hotel Brouwer at 8AM and stepped into what we thought would be a Lobby, but found it was "The Breakfast" room and many were having breakfast. The one staff person there suggested that we put out bags into the office (which was filthy and covered with dust) and... More

I stayed at the Brouwer recently for 2 nights as a single woman travelling alone. I was a bit disappointed when I arrived, but I had been spoiled by a few nights at absolutely gorgeous B&Bs in Belgium and was tired from a train journey. Once I'd had a rest and a walk around the canals I realized that the... More

We loved staying at the Hotel Brower for our Honeymoon vacation! Central and traditional Amsterdam, the hotel was the perfect vase for our mad wandering. The people were pleasant and helpful and the setting was intimate and quaint. We absolutely adored our stay and are glad it will always be such a cherished memory!

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
