Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Fita

Jan Luykenstraat 37, Amsterdam, North Holland 1071 CL, The Netherlands See on Map Fodor's Choice

This friendly and cozy long-time travelers' favorite includes such welcome perks as an honor bar, a great gratis breakfast, and in-room espresso machines, along with a very convenient location for art and music lovers.

To save on a taxi, catch Bus 197 from Schiphol International Airport. Get off at the Willemsparkweg/Museumplein stop, which is only a short walk from the hotel.

room

Comfortable rooms are simply and functionally furnished but come with welcome amenities such as Nespresso coffee makers, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Not all rooms have air conditioning.

bathroom

The white-tiled bathrooms are modern and nicely appointed.

lobby

While the simple reception area won’t be getting raves, the staff behind it certainly do.

dining

The buffet breakfast is a bit of an event, with freshly baked bread, homemade jam, pancakes, and freshly squeezed orange juice served in a colorful breakfast room.

drinking

An in-house honor bar offers wine, beer, and soft drinks.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The turn-of-the-20th-century townhouse is on a quiet, leafy street, yet the major museums and the Concertgebouw concert hall are literally around the corner.

Restaurants

Sustainable seafood specialist The Seafood Bar (3-minute walk) offers smoked fish varieties from Volendam, delicately-battered fish and chips, four varieties of oyster and extravagant platters of fruits de mer. Soak up some authentic Art Deco atmosphere at Café Americain (11-minute walk) while tucking into “accessible brasserie classics with a twist”. Or sample some of the best fries in the city at Frietboutique (12-minute walk), which also offers excellent ice cream.

Bars

Popular café Gollem’s Proeflokaal, a dark and cozy Belgian beer café with more than 180 bottled brews and 22 on tap, is a 10-minute walk away. If you’re looking for the convivial atmosphere of a typical Dutch “brown café”, there’s Café De Wetering (10-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

Hotel Fita offers good value for money in an expensive part of town.
