    Hidden Gem?

    by

    We didn't stay here, but it was the place we had earmarked to stay until we changed our mind and went with the Tulip Inn. The Tulip was a good choice for our first visit to Amsterdam because it was easy to get to from the trainstation but I think if we return to Amsterdam in the future, we will definitely go here. It's had very good ratings on Trip Advisor, too.

    It's a small hotel, with just 15 non-smoking rooms. Breakfast is included and there's a small lift, which I always insist on wherever i stay.

    Unique Quality: Ensuite Rooms have a flat panel tv, coffee/tea making abilities, safe, ceiling fan and a telephone. Wi-fi is available. Single rooms and doubles available. The doubles have various sizes, and various prices up to 165 euros for the largest. All pretty reasonable for central Amsterdam. Bathrooms for the doubles seem to have both bath and shower and the single rooms just have a shower (toilets, too, of course, and hair dryers are included)

    Hotel is in the museum area, one street over from the Van Gogh and Rijkesmuseum area.

    Directions: Take the tram to the stop for Rijkesmuseum. The street for the hotel is just there and it's a couple of blocks up.

    A lovely little hotel (just 16 rooms) with great personal service. It was a great pleasure to stay here

    Unique Quality: The Staff (espically the Owner) are brilliant if a bit excentric.

    Also every room has a duck with the hotel details on.

    Directions: Museum Area

    Unique Quality: A very nice breakfast is provided for all guests in the downstairs breakfast room. The staff is wonderfully helpful and accommodating.

    Directions: Hotel Fita is located in the Museum District. Take tram 5 or 2 and get off near the Van Gough Museum

More about Hotel Fita

Special time in a wonderful city!!!!

by TripAdvisor Member LittleBlue7

Our stay at the Hotel Fita was a very special time in a wonderful city. We were completing our vacation after visiting Italy, Belgium, and Maastricht. We were greeted by our enthusiastic host, Hans, who described many interesting things about the city. The hotel was just incredible. The premises was sparkling clean, from the main entrance to the rooms. The double deluxe was spacious and included a large spotless bathroom. Our breakfast was excellent, from the eggs,bacon, fresh baked goods, fresh orange juice, cereals, yogurt and the endless supply of delicious fresh brewed coffee. Do yourself a favor and invite Hans to join you for a cup. The free telephone calls to the United States and Europe were an added bonus. The Van Gogh and Rijks museums were steps away. Great shopping and restaurants were also close by. When we return to Amsterdam we will definitely stay with Hans and Loes de Rapper again at the Hotel Fita.

Rooms are OK but the management is not

by TripAdvisor Member A_IN_TELAVIV

Rooms are small ,but that's typical. Basic and very clean. What damaged our stay was the atitude of the manager/owner. We received negative respond to everything we asked for, although we followed all the house rules.

Great City / Good Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Fita on Oct. 2004. The room is standard European size (small) but I was surprised that the bathroom was quite large. The location is perfect and breakfast was wonderful. Hans and Loes are the perfect hosts - enjoyed Hans's dry humor and received good advice from Loes.

Great hotel

by TripAdvisor Member kittyhead

Our room was very clean & comfortable and we looked forward to having their delicious breakfasts every morning. We're also glad to finally see how the very cool orange juice machine worked! Great location in the Museumplein. We walked everywhere.

Unforgettable Hotel Fita, from Spain

by A TripAdvisor Member

Thanks to our election of the Hotel Fita, our stay in Amsterdam was unforgettable.We are used to traveling, but it is not easy to find hotels where the stay is so pleasant; even less, in tourist destinations so important as Amsterdam. Moreover, when traveling with a 6 years-old boy, we really appreciate the characteristics that make easy the satisfaction of our neceessities is this matter.
And in this way, they are several reasons that made the stay at the Hotel Fita so extraordinary:
1. The localization: the beautiful building of beginning of the 20 century (built to the typical style of Amsterdam), wich is just barely at 50 meters from the Van Gogh Museum and, therefore, also beside the Rijskmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. The pleasant walk to the Leidseplein Square (one of the most lively night spaces, where there are plenty of restaurants and terraces; and very calm for families) it is carried out in just 5 minutes. Also in 5 minutes you can arrive to the romantic Vondelpark that also has an area for child games. For other locations, there is a complete service of trams, wich bring you to the most tourist places.
2. Services: the Hotel Fita overcomes the requeriments of tranquility, cleaning and health; with an exquisite politic of "no smokers."
3. Welcome: staying at the Hotel Fita, you will realize that the family de Rapper really enjoys their lifestyle, beyond their work. The warmth with which they welcome you, the constant concern with which they worry about your satisfaction, and the atmosphere of familiarity among their employees, all toghether, makes that you really notice a true custom "attention".
4. Details: family de Rapper is specially generous in excepctional details. For example: they give 2 tickets for the Van Gogh Museum or for the Rijksmuseum (at your election) and they offer you others tickets (without any additional cost), so you don't need to spend your time queuing up for any tickets. They are pleased to carry out personal favors as bringing you, in their own automobile, to a Rent-a-car company, or to make an urgent laundry for the boy's clothes (and for free), etc.
5. Tourist information: the information of cultural events, what you shouldn't miss in Amsterdam and in the rest of the country, is really attractive and, mainly, far away from the sequential information that you get at the receptions of other hotels and, also, in the overcrowded offices of tourism. Trusting their advices is a guarantee os satisfaction.
Lastly, you can make yourself understand with them in "all" languages, also in a friendly spanish, learned in long stays in our coasts.

Not a good Fita for us

by TripAdvisor Member Galloping

I booked Hotel Fita based purely on the reviews from the Tripadvisor website which depicted the hotel as a charming, friendly place in a quiet location away from the excesses of the city.

The Museum area is very quiet relative to everywhere else and although it is slightly outside the main spots, the trams are excellent and so there is no bother getting to and from the livelier city. So in this respect the location was fine.

However in terms of charm, the Hotel Fita has little. The decor is dull. The hotel had false ceilings in all the rooms I was in, making it extremely clinical. Our room once had a high old ceiling but a suspended one was put in, totally hanging in mid air where it couldn't match up to the wall because of the lovely long windows. Lighting was by flourescent tubes hidden above the curtains that buzzed for the entire time they were on. Other lighting was only provided by two bedside lamps, completely insufficient so the buzzing had to be tolerated.

We stayed in a double "de luxe" room. Double....well there were 2 single beds pushed together. Clean.....the room was very clean as was the bathroom. The bathroom was a fine size with a good vanity area. Good lighting, which can so often be a problem in hotels. So this was very positive. However the bathroom was let down by all the awful dispensers on the walls. One for hand soap, toilet paper, shower gel, plastic cups. It all felt very similar to being in the toilet facilities at a school or shopping centre. Do that many people pack the rolls of loo paper away with them before they leave that this was necessary? More disposables in the main room, cups for the coffee tray were plastic with a good supply of plastic inserts if you required. After a long day on my feet between the museums and the shopping I would just have liked to have my coffee from a cup.

Finally, the management boast that they know there guests by name. Well I think they would find it difficult to know ours as we never met them. On the morning we were leaving I looked up the phone numbers they had left in the room so that I could call someone to arrange a taxi. There was no number for reception, only the management, so I called that. I was greeted by a most unfriendly host who quite literally scolded me on the phone for making the call and then did so much heavy breathing to reiterate how irritated he was I did begin to wonder who was the guest and where was the lovely man who everyone speaks of on this site ? We eventually got a taxi by leaving our room and going down two flights of stairs to the breakfast room to find a staff member to call one for us. By the time we left that morning I was so annoyed, I almost felt I had been robbed as I signed for the bill.

If you like the smell of bleach to assure you that a hotel room has been cleaned, by all means stay at the Hotel Fita. If you are looking for charm, then this is certainly not the place. Breakfast is not so fantastic that you wouldn't get the same elsewhere, and given that we had to send back sour milk on our first morning, I am not so sure that this place is as efficient as they would like you to believe. Its clean.....thats about it. I am at a complete loss as to know where all the fantastic reviews on this site come from.
