    Live Like A Prostitute


    Eve's apartment service came to me via Hostelworld initially when me and my other half went to Amsterdam last year.

    The apartment we stayed in, on Spuistraat was self contained and secure, we had a security access fob, and a key to the apartment, so there were no worries about being broken into and having to explain away the lack of a passport at Schiphol.

    From checking in, the staff were really friendly, and even left us a bottle of wine in the apartment as well as answering any questions we had about the area.

    Bathroom is really funky, and there's all you need there to have some chilltime away from the hustle and bustle.

    Unique Quality: The apartment itself is like one of the apartments the prostitues have, indeed there were working girls as neighbours - although I must stress that neither the area or what goes on there is seedy. The street is safe, cosmopolitan and well lit. Two girls sharing would be just as cool here as two lads or a mixed couple.

    The window looks out onto the street so there is a cool element that you're in the apartment and everything's going on just outside.

    The bed - check out the photo.

    Great Location


    Quaint little hotel just minutes away from Leidsplein. We paid about 80e for a double w/ private bath. Typical Amsterdam style with steep steps and a friendly staff.

    Just around the corner from Vondelpark and 10 minutes to the museums. We liked how close it was to Liedsplein without the hustle and bustle of actually being in the center. Near great food, entertainment and the park.

    If you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. The walls are a bit thin and flushes a bit noisy.

    Cosy, Friendly and Budget Accomodation


    After fleeing the Quentin England, I walked a few doors down and got a lovely, larger room for the same price, on the first flight up, with a larger bathroom AND a window with a lovely view. It was painted retro-blue with mismatched floral patterns and posters of gerber daisies on the wall so I felt right at home! The staff was friendly, the breakfast was abundant and it's in a quiet and safe neighborhood. I recommend this hotel for those traveling on a buget or alone.

    Unique Quality: Quaint and cosy. Clean and fairly comfortable. the bed could have more pillows and blanketing as I like but that's life in a budget hotel, right?

    UPDATE 1/2010 - When I stayed here in 2003 it was a 2 star hotel called Hotel Roemer Visscher. it's since been made over into what looks like a more upscale boutique hotel. So that basically makes my tip null.

    However, the location still can't be beat!

    Directions: Museum Area, near Leidseplein. Walking distance from everywhere.

Bit of a stinker!

by peopletree about Hotel Roemer Visscher

We booked over the internet and the place was NOT as we were informed. We were in an annexe next door which had a dark staircase and disgusting carpets. Room 5A was simply a joke. The carpets were absolutely filthy and NOTHING worked at all. It was a dumping ground for broken cast offs. The bed was supported by a brick, the lamps, fan, tv were all unuseable. It was however a very large airy room. The whole place had that " I've run out of money and interest" feel. All said though, it was quiet, very central, had plenty of hot water and the breakfasts were ok. Just don't go if you like cleanliness.

a design and sophisticted hotel

by TripAdvisor Member ccrr77fr

It's not that easy to find a nice and different hotel to stay in Amsterdam but i've found the right place perfectly located in the most fashionnable district of Amsterdam, at a foot distance from Vondel Park and the elegant shopping area and not far from the historic and cultural interests.
The hotel is a small property extremly well designed where you'll find some ultra lively rooms very comfortable, spacious and cool. Except a huge bed so great for a remarquable rest, you'll have the advantage of a bubble bathtub, so relaxing after a long walk in this fancy city... Everything in this hotel is very satisfacting and we have really loved our room, 34, at the third floor for the high ceilings and the nice view on the amsterdamese rooftops.
Moreover, the area is quiet at night and this is a fantastic "plus" in a busy city.
About the staff, what else to say that all of them are great and very efficient. During all the stay, they do their best to offer the best hotel experience. They're very friendly and smily and this is very appreciable.
So, it's a 'GRAND PETIT HOTEL" and even the breakfast is really really good with high quality food and a very nice service...
Hotel Roemer is the best adress in town... Don't hesitate to choose it.

Great Place to Stay- Lovely "Boutique Hotel"

by TripAdvisor Member fattaileddunnart

We stayed at Hotel Roemer for five nights over the Easter weekend. The staff are very friendly and professional. The rooms are lovely. Ours had a balcony overlooking the back garden (decking in garden under construction but should be finished within a few weeks). The jacuzzi bath was perfect at the end of a long day walking the streets of Amsterdam.

The location is great. It is right near Leidesplein Square which is a main hub. It is a short walk to the Van Gogh Museum, Rij ..Museum. It is easy to walk around Amsterdam and this is a great place to use as a base. If you are less enthusiastic about walking, there are trams from Leidesplein Square. The 1,2 and 5 go from the train station to Leidesplein Square via Dam Square. It is all very walkable but if you have luggage it is probably worth getting the tram.

You can buy tram tickets on the tram (more expensive) or buy a strip of 15 tickets (2 tickets per trip) from tabacconists. There are a more economical option.

Enjoyed Our Stay

by TripAdvisor Member Sagarika

We spent two nights in Hotel Roemer at the end of May and were very pleased with the place.

We got a 'small double room' but were offered a larger room for the second night, but we were too lazy to move. The room, though small, was rather well equipped and had a pleasant artsy decor. The bed was comfortable, we had a wardrobe with a safe, minibar, ipod dock and flat screen television. The bathroom was very clean and the rain shower excellent.

The staff were polite, friendly and very helpful. The hotel is located on a quiet street, within a couple of minutes walking distance from Leidesplein and Vondelpark.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful stay in a true gem!

by TripAdvisor Member walkerw6

Just spent a fantastic 3 nights at Hotel Roemer. We know Amsterdam quite well and chose the hotel because the location is central (2 minutes from Leidseplein, and the upmarket shops in Pieter C Hooftstraat) yet really quiet, on a virtually traffic free sidestreet. Although it cost slightly more than we usually spend on a long weekend away, the hotel was well worth the money and didn't disappoint in any way. Our room was not huge, but as others have mentioned the big comfy bed, deep jacuzzi bath and rainfall shower really make this a 5 star experience, and I could easily become addicted to having a flat screen TV by the bath as well as 2 in the bedroom! The bar manages to be both 'designer' stylish and totally relaxing, with its fire and sofas to sink into, and there is a beautiful courtyard garden (rare in Amsterdam!) with the sort of seating which is perfect for lounging in with a drink and catching the early evening sun. Being just around the corner from the Vondelspark and its beergarten is a bonus too, if you have nice weather. The staff were very welcoming and happy to recommend restaurants etc, tho in the end we used the internet terminals in the lobby to research some excellent local eateries. We didn't choose to have breakfast in the hotel - preferring to wander up to the Spui for the Cafe-Luxembourg-and-weekend-paper option. Also, 20 euro for breakfast seems quite pricy, given that a cafe breakfast can be had for around 10. But, all in all, Hotel Roemer was a little haven of peace and luxury whenever we needed a break from all that sightseeing, shopping and cafe-visiting.

Just refurbished - go and enjoy!

by TripAdvisor Member LondonTravels

This is a good hotel which has recently been refurbished to a high standard - the "hotel photos" from this site don't do it justice! Staff are friendly and helpful - the barman even went to the sister hotel a street away to collect the right ingredients for our cocktails. We walked into the centre of the city in about 40 minutes, or you can easily catch a tram.

The hotel is ideal for the Rijksmuseum and its adjacent Van Gogh Museum. It's also walking distance from the upmarket shopping street Pieter Cornelisz Hoofstraat. Do lunch at "Patou" on Pieter Cornelisz Hoofstraat - its a great upmarket cafe.

Rooms do vary in size and facility - our room (no 18) was well equipped and stylishly decorated but had no bath (not a problem for us but some people are bath-addicts!) we did have three small flat screen TVs. Why we'd need three is anyone's guess ...

How well the refurbished rooms will last (a shower room with no extract is surely doomed) is a point of debate, but go and enjoy while its fresh.

Fantastic Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member smudge53

This is a great hotel, our room (11)in the basement was large, clean and tidy.
Our stay was room only so we didn't take any meals in house.
With a jacuzzi bath, separate rain shower unit, flat screen tv and twin marble sinks I could have lived in the bathroom.
It was our first stay in a hotel with the boutique label so we knew decor wise it would be new and modern, and wow was it.
The hotel is located in a quiet side street just 5 mins walk from Leidseplein with good connections by tram to central station.
The staff were friendly and helpful, providing us with complimentary refreshments while our room was being prepared.
We caught The Roemer in a state of newly refurbished and would without doubt return.

I will be traveling with my boyfriend at the end of May 2004 and plan on spending a few days. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a nice inexpensive hotel and a good location near cafes/bars/shopping to look for. Thanks for the advice!

Back in March 2003 my friend and I stayed in the Atlanta hotel, in the very center of Amsterdam, a walking distance from everything. Check the website:
We paid 98 euros for a luxury room, there are cheaper rooms there, but all of them are very clean.

Hotel Roemer Visscher on the Roemer Visscherstraat.

Good prices, good sized rooms, clean, friendly staff and a good breakfast. Near the Museumplein and The Leidesplein where you can find restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, banks and shopping.

Keep in mind that Amsterdam is small and extremely walkable city. So, although you might seem tempted to stay near Central Station, for my tastes the Museum District is the place to be.

Re: Hotels and Locations

by galy

I prefer to stay at the Leidesplein area, rather then downtown. Lots and lots of restaurants, pubs, close to the museum area, street artists all around, and a nicer atmosphehre. If you need to get to downtown, it's a 5 minute drive with the tram

Re: Hotels and Locations


You may want to check out and make plans. They have a lot of interesting and unique places all around Amsterdam.
