"Below average hotel in great location"
We went to the location to find out we were staying over 2 blocks away. The stairs are steep and high. We were on the 3rd floor, fortunately my 2 boys were with me and were able to carry the luggage for my sister and me. The rooms are very dated. The location is great but that's about the only positive things I can say about the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Steep Stairs"
In general the hotel was clean and everyone was friendly. The location was central and made seeing the city easy. The room was on the pricey side for what you get but everything in this city expensive. The only real negatives are the REALLY steep stairs and the poor WIFI connection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived at the hotel, the staff was so accommodating. They carried our suitcases to the second floor. (Third floor to US residents). The flooring needs updating. I was a little grossed out by the carpet going up the stairs and in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for the money but too many stairs"
This hotel was a good value for the money. The bathrooms were recently renovated, but they could have used new carpet & some other updates. We ended up on the 3rd floor (4th by American standards) and had to climb 40+ stairs with our luggage as there were no elevators. That was really our only complaint, otherwise the room was comfortable and the staff […] was friendly and helpful. The location was also convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions.

"would not recommend it."
Was not impressed at all. The rooms where located at another address about 1/3 km away. The flight of stairs up to the 1st floor where very narrow and steep so very difficult to get luggage up and down. The bathroom had way too much mildew in it for my taste. The twin beds are more like cots and the mattress on the queen has definitely had a lot of […] use. Old decor and not a place to spend any time. I would definitely NOT go back.

"Central location close to Dam Square"
I booked 3 rooms (2 twins and a single). The rooms were a little on the small side, but perfectly functional. Again the bathrooms and toilets were a little snug, but adequate. All rooms were ensuite, the beds were very comfortable and the heating was more than adequate. The windows opened without effort, which meant the rooms had a fresh air feel to […] them and not that stale smell you sometimes get in smaller hotels. There was always lots of hot water and no black mold in the bathrooms. I found the breakfast to be better than expected for a 2 star hotel. The staff were very helpful especially an oriental gentleman who went to great lengths to get us transport to Keukenhof - without him we would have been at the mercy of public transport or the tour coaches that were booked up. We were allowed to leave our bags behind reception both when we arrived and on the day of departure, which gave us the freedom to visit museums without dragging our cases behind us. The hotels location was perfect, close to Dam Square and only about 15 -20 minutes walk to the RijksMuseum. There were plenty of lunch cafes dotted around and some superb restaurants for a decent meal in the evenings within a short walk. Overall a nice Canal House Hotel with helpful staff in a great location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Terrible hotel, it is not like the pictures at all. The stairs are crazy steep, I walked straight out and booked elsewhere. I want a refund!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent 2* Hotel"
Great location & great price. Excellent for a 2star hotel, private bathrooms in rooms. No complaints, will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a 3 night stay in September 2013 in this lovely old canal house. Staff were very helpful & courteous. The stairs are steep, but our heavy bags were carried to our room for us. The decor was perhaps a bit tired and dated, but our room was clean, comfortable, with ensuite and had a canal view ( we were on the 2nd floor) The breakfast was the usual […] meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, cereals and breads. Plenty of it and served in the downstairs breakfast room. Tony was very likeable and helpful with answering our queries and booking a day tour and taxi. Hotel centrally located close to restaurants, shops, bars etc. We would definitely stay again if in Amsterdam. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lovely hotel (steep steps though)"
great view onto canal. Good breakfast. stairs were steep and narrow steps, but only an issue if you have giant bags or struggle with physical movement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location right in the centre of everything of amsterdam easy to walk to The Dam, and close to surrounding attractions i.e red light district. Beds were comfy enough to sleep on for the 2 nights we stayed, rooms quite small and stairs VERY steep, but easy for young fit travelers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to Dam square"
Quite good to stay a couple of nights, close to main attractions, friendly and helpfull staff. Minuses: very steep and narrow stairs - not suitable for elder people and/or big luggage, thin walls - you can hear all what i going on in the next room, extremely tiny bathroomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"암스텔담 최고의 위치"
위치는 더할 나위 없이 좋았고, 방도 넓었다. 주방도 편리했다. 다만, 에어컨이 없어서 여름에는 더울 것 같고, 화장실 및 방의 문은 잘 맞지 않아 닫히지 않는 것이 매우 불편했다. 계단이 가파르기 때문에 무거운 짐을 가지고 가지는 말 것. 하지만, 암스텔담 자체가 아룸답기 때문에 여행 후에는 좋은 기억만 남았다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Céntrico y acogedor"
Se encuentra en un piso del casco antiguo de Amsterdam, a escasos metros de Plaza Dam en una calle tranquila junto a dos principales canales. Las escaleras son las típicas de estos pisos, muy pequeñas y empinadas. El personal del hotel muy atento y facilitando todas las gestiones.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had to carry our 2 big luggages to 4th floor as there was no elevator. Yet the receptionists was very kind and helpful to us. Though the facilities are not that good, the service was great. We understand that many hotels in Amsterdam are not equipped with an elevator. So there is basically nothing to complain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super Lage, idyllisches Grachtenhaus"
alles prima. Netter Service, super Lage! Preis-Leistung stimmte hier voll.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Läget är perfekt men förvänta dig inte hög standard. Vi bodde i ett trebädds rum och hade underbar utsikt mot kanalen. Badrummet var nyrenoverat och bra om än lite trångt. Bara en liten papperskorg på toaletten för hela rummet gjorde att det blev lätt stökigt. Frukosten ok men väldigt basic. Toast, kaffe, te, kokt ägg och mjölk med flingor. Branta trappor […] så inget för någon som inte kan bära upp sitt bagage. Fritt WiFi som funkade bäst i receptionen men i bland på rummen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bra läge, ej för dåligt gående"
Hotellet ligger i ett centralt läge. Låt inte 2 stjärnor skrämma bort er. Anledningen är att det saknas bemanning efter 22 och att det inte finns hiss. Istället finns en brant och smal trappa. Rummen är klassiska, sunkig helteckningsmatta men fräscht badrum. Inget för de äldre kanske, och lite dyrt annars helt ok. Frukosten var ganska basic. Trevlig […] och tillmötesgående personal.

"Rigtig god service, og søde mennesker!"
Vi kom meget tideligt med nattoget til amsterdam (10 om morgenen), så vores hotelværelse var ikke klart endnu. Da vi kom til hotellet var de rigtig søde og tog vores tasker, så vi ikke skulle slæbe dem rundt Med os. hurtigt tog manden i reseptionen et kort frem, og viste os alle activitetetne rundt i amsterdam, så vi kunne have noget at få tiden til […] at gå med. Værelset var lidt lille, men alligevel var det rigtig godt, pænt og nydeligt. Det bedste ved dette hotel er helt klart servicen, fordi at de virkelig prøver at blive venner med jer, spørge jer om jeres ophold og om hvordan jeres dag er gået, samtidig med at de joker og laver sjov, men placeringe var også virkelig dejlig og tæt ved alt! Det eneste der var lidt lidt dårligt var helt klart morgenmaden, som havde kedeligt udvalg og at prisen var temmelig høj, men ellers var der intet. Alt i alt havde vi et virkelig godt ophold i center af Amsterdam :D Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and friendly service but..."
Hotel was located perfectly. It had a charming athmosphere and great view as our room was on the canal side. Weird thing was that one evening after the day out we arrived back at the hotel and someone had been in our room, moving beds and pillows and the explanation was that the cleaner had started cleaning there and had probably forgot to do the actual […] cleaning after all. Room was small but the bathroom was clean (allthoug might be a bit too small for anyone biger than us). Breakfast was ok, bread, cereals and coffee. Staff was very helpfull.

Loistava sijainti kauniilla alueella, todella mukava palvelu ja langaton netti toimi moitteettomasti! Aamupala oli varsin kelvollinen: leipää, leikkeleitä, juustoa, marmeladia, keitettyjä kananmunia, muroja, tuoremehua, hedelmiä. Huone ei ollut suuren suuri, mutta kylpyhuone oli selvästi hiljattain remontoitu. Portaat olivat odotetusti jyrkät, joten […] kolmanteen kerrokseen kiivetessä sai hyvän jalkatreenin.

Morgenmaden lavpraktisk men fin. Trapperne var stejle og kan være en stor udfordring for dårligt gående, men de var ikke værre end i andre kanalhuse.

"Situé en plein centre à 2 pas de la place Dam !"
C'est la 2ème fois que nous louons un appartement pour 2 couples pour quelques nuits à l'hôtel Hoksbergen et nous en sommes très contents : les personnes à l'accueil de l'hôtel sont très sympathiques et parlent français. Ils nous ont indqué où garer notre voiture dans un parking P+R en nous donnant l'adresse pour le GPS. L'appartement était propre et […] rangé, et les draps et serviettes et torchons fournis, ainsi que l'essuie-tout et le papier toilette. Il y avait même éponge, produit vaisselle, vaisselle, plaques, micro-onde et bouilloire ! Nous recommandons l'appartement 18 de l'hôtel Hoksbergen, le seul que nous connaissons !

"Hotel Hoksbergen Amsterdam"
Personal amable, prestos a ayudarte. Fui con mis hermanos y nos hospedamos en amsterdam durante 3 dias, nos dieron un apartamento con las comodidades basicas, bueno para el precio que se pago considerando que esta es una ciudad bastante cara. El apartamento tiene una cama en medio de todo y un cuarto aparte algo mas privado con dos camas individuales. […] El primer dia nos ofrecieron cambio d toallas ya luego los otros dos, no. Bano con bastante jabones, potes d champu, la cocina tiene microondas, una pequena nevera, utencilios basicos para cocinar y ahorrarte algo d dinero no comiendo por fuera. Muy bien ubicado cerca de la estacion central, plaza Dam, casa d ana frank y otros sitios d interes. Aspectos negativos se escucha ruidos d otras habitaciones y las escaleras muy reducidas y extremadamente inclinadas. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Had a tiny tiny room, washroom about as bit as a closet, including shower. However, it was newly renovated, clean, funtional.

Es war eines der günstigsten Angebote, die wir finden konnten. Wir hatten daher auch keine grossen Erwartungen. Die Zimmer waren dann auch sehr klein und nicht wirklich hübsch aber - und das war uns wichtig - sie waren sauber. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und gab gerne gute Tipps. Das Frühstück war - obwohl bei der Buchung anders angegeben - inbegriffen, […] nicht überwältigend aber absolut ok (nur der Kaffee war nichts). Dafür war der Standort einfach einmalig! Man ist mitten im Zentrum und doch an ruhiger Lage, gelangt überall zu Fuss hin und so kommt man auch superschnell zu einem richtig guten Kaffee. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Budget hotel to recommend"
Excellent location, clean –rooms are okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
10/15/14 suitetravel Vancouver, Canada
Stayed early October for 4 nights. Location is great and easy to walk to everything that was important to my stay. Quiet location but close to the "buzz" of central Amsterdam. This is your "typical" canal house hotel as I expected having been to Amsterdam before. My room was on the top floor and a hefty walk up many flights of stairs (again, as I expected). My room was basic and small with 2 single beds. The room was "tired" and "worn" but clean. The bathroom small but renovated nicely. The breakfast was very basic with little variety which was a bit of a disappointment after the great breakfasts I had in Greece before coming to Amsterdam. The guys that run the hotel are very friendly, nice and welcoming. They seem to be trying really hard to make it a great place to stay. I would stay here again for a few nights stay, but not for a longer stay.
This small hotel is in an excellent location on the Singel Canal, convenient to walking to many area sites. We booked a triple room for the two of us so we would have a bit more space and also a canal view. The staff is exceptionally helpful and recommended places to eat in the area. The bathroom was new and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was not fancy but was certainly adequate. Be aware that this is a budget hotel, and it could use a bit of paint and new carpet, but its location and congenial staff make up for those cosmetic needs.

My 3 daughters and I had a cosy apartment in this hotel. I highly recommend it as a clean, basic accommodation with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The location was excellent, within walking distance of many attractions as well as to a supermarket.
10/04/14 Ellenfromeire Ireland
My sisters and mother stayed in one of the four apartments that Hotel Hoksbergen offers. The apartments are across the canal from the hotel. The apartment was clean and basic, which suited our needs and the location was superb. The little street that the apartment is on is lively and we were on the ground floor, but with the window closed at night the street noise was less intrusive. It is a charming neighbourhood. One could walk to many attractions - Anne Frank House, The Dam, Flower Market, Canal Bus, Rembrandt's House, and several other museums - or take a tram to museums that were farther away. There is a very good grocery store nearby and the apartments are self-catering, which is a nice option. We found the staff at the hotel extremely friendly and helpful.
"Perfect Location and price"
10/04/14 LFlanPHL New Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I really recommend going with this hotel. Actually, we ended up staying in one of the apartments they have in a building a short walk away (on the other side of the canal on the next side street). If you're looking for no-frills accommodation, for four or five people, I heartily recommend arranging one of their apartment rentals. Ours had a sitting area which also had a double and single bed; bunkbeds in a separate room; spacious bath; kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, sink, glassware, plates, bowls, cutlery etc. The location is excellent--within walking distance of so many major attractions. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as well. The only drawback was noise: people stomping upstairs late at night returning to the upstairs apartment, and street noise also late at night. This will be the case on any of the streets, I assume, however. It seemed like a way of life. A white noise machine would be a good idea!

Great hotel right in the heart of Amsterdam! Everything is walking distance from this hotel. We arrived by train and walked from the station to the hotel, took about 15 minutes. Takes 5 minutes to walk to The Anne Frank House, Dam Square, about 10 minutes to the red light district and the longest walk we did was about 25-30 minutes to the Heineken Brewery. Free Wifi worked great and the breakfast was fine too - continental (breads, cereals, cheeses etc). The staff were all so helpful and friendly. The stairs are very steep as its an old canal house, and the staff carried our bags up and down the stairs for us and we really appreciated it! Room was clean and just enough space for the 2 of us. Some other reviews have said that the rooms are too small...they're not, I've stayed in plenty that have been much smaller than this! Would definitely stay here the next time I'm in Amsterdam, could not fault this place.
"Glad we found Hotel Hoksbergen"
09/24/14 J and D M Richmond, Canada
We had a 3 night stay in Amsterdam and used 'Rick Steves' as a guide for this hotel and our time in Amsterdam. The Hotel room was on the 4th floor, overlooking the canal. It was small but clean. The stairs are steep but Jay assisted us with the luggage both up and down the stairs. The room was quiet except for Saturday night when the party boats went by and some very drunk, very noisy people wandered the street. The hotel location was wonderful, within walking distance of the major sights. Breakfast was basic but well presented. We did use the safe in the office as there was not one in the room. We dealt mainly with Jay and he was very helpful, very pleasant. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
"Great location, great view"
09/13/14 David B Waco, Texas
We had a very good 8-day stay at Hotel Hoksbergen in September. Yes, canal houses are tall and narrow, so the stairs are steep and the room small but spotlessly clean. The location is perfect and the view over the canal through a window box of pink geraniums was lovely. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.
"Good for the price"
09/04/14 John S Exeter, United Kingdom
The room was small and dated, however it was clean. It has 1 or 2 star facilities in my opinion. The hotel is on a quiet street, yet very close to the center. It offers good value for money especially if you wake up for the breakfast. The staff are very nice and helpful.
"Lovely people, great view"
08/19/14 LawyerMom_10 Charleston, WV
Our room was clean, bed was comfortable, the view out over the canal was lovely. The street was charming and nicely located -- and quiet. We were only a few blocks from shopping and transportation and interesting sights. The hotel staff was very warm and very helpful. Consistently recommended excellent restaurants. The halls were a bit scruffy. And the breakfast was only adequate. But all in all, we really enjoyed our stay.
