Fodor's Expert Review 't Hotel

Leliegracht 18, Amsterdam, North Holland 1015 DE, The Netherlands See on Map

Fodors.com

Here you'll find what the Dutch call klein maar fijn (small but good): a 17th-century canalside house with individually decorated rooms and a charming café overlooking the canal. There is no 24-hour reception, but you'll be provided with a key so you can come and go as you please.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Beware that the traditional Dutch stairs are steep and narrow, though a chairlift is available if you need one

room

No two rooms are alike, with themes ranging from whimsical floral to Art Deco inspired and riffs on Delft Blue. Larger-than-average for Amsterdam, the guest rooms also offer modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free WiFi.

Rooms in the front overlook the canal, while those in the rear are blessedly quiet.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Located on a quiet canal in the Jordaan, this hotel puts you within an easy walking distance of most of the sights in the Canal Belt, picturesque Jordaan and Old Center, and even parts of hip Oud-West. Catch a tram from nearby Dam Square to get to the Museum District, or walk to Centraal Station for more options.

Restaurants

If it’s comfort food you’re after, La Perla Pizzeria (6-minute walk), is famed for its authentic wood-burning oven Pizza Margherita, and convivial vibe. Sustainable seafood specialist, The Seafood Bar (8-minute walk), offers smoked fish varieties from Volendam, delicately-battered fish and chips, four varieties of oyster and platters of fruits de mer. To try light, modern Dutch cuisine, head to Lt. Cornelis (9-minute walk), which perfectly juxtaposes past and present in its food and décor.

Bars

Café ‘t Smalle (4-minute walk) has been around since the 18th-century when it was the Hoppe Distillery, and its canal-side terrace is one of the prettiest places to grab a casual beer. And Bar Oldenhof (12-minute walk) offers a wide range of whiskeys and reasonably-priced cocktails (by Amsterdam standards, that is) in a bar with a nouveau-gentlemen’s club feel.

WHY WE LIKE IT

For a cozy and comfortable canal house stay, ‘t Hotel offers value for money, and there’s even a cute tea room to relax in.
