"Fantastic location, just OK rooms"
Great location at the south end of the Jordan for strolling through beautiful and low-key neighborhoods such as the Jordan or the trendy 9 Streets, just steps away. There you can find nice restaurants, cool cafes, a great cheese shop and bakeries, and unique boutique shopping. Also handy for the Anne Frank House (reserve online to avoid queues!) and […] reasonably close to the major museums. The city bus to Schipol Airport is also very close, which the helpful receptionist recommended. Other pros include a decent breakfast included in the rate and complimentary espresso and tea served in the lounge. We were less excited about the rooms, which are basic, a bit small and not furnished very comfortably. There were some chintzy touches like shower gel in a packet (like ketchup), but overall for the price the location seemed to be a worthwhile tradeoff for fewer comforts. Be advised that the steps are very steep, particularly from the 2nd to 3rd floor (that’s 1st to 2nd in typical European parlance). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Charming place to stay. Don't expect a modern hotel. There is no elevator and if your room is on the 4th floor you will have to drag your large suitcases up long steep stairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best location in Amsterdam"
This is not the most sophisticated hotel it is in fact quite quirky. Two friends travelling to amsterdam for 5 days found it the perfect spot, great value for money and if you can get over the decor and collections a perfect base for the city. The staff were friendly and helpful and the stairs good for the muscles. Best view I ever had from a hotel […] room although a little noisy late at night with open window.

"Friendly hotel that made you feel at home"
On arrival, we were greater by the owners' dog and very friendly and approachable staff. We were given directions to the room, which was on the third floor. Boy, are Amsterdam steps steep! Not a problem though and it made the hotel seem more like a home. The complimentary sweets by the hotel desk are also a plus. The room itself was fine. It was a […] family room with four beds. Sadly no view of the canal but the plus side was that it was very quiet. The breakfast is a simple continental style breakfast. It was more than enough for us. And you get a great view of the canal from the breakfast room. There is also complimentary tea, coffee and hot choc. No beer/ alcoholic drinks. Very nice after a long day around town. We left our luggage at the hotel and came back to collect before leaving to come home. A very helpful service. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our family of 4 recently stayed here and were amazed at the prime location of the property. With easy access to transport, food, trendy shops and bars this is the place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in great location"
We stayed 2 nights (not long enough) and walked for miles around Amsterdam taking in the main tourist spots (Anne Frank House - very moving, Dam Square, red light area, shopping streets, canal boat tour - recommended, etc). We had a friendly reception everywhere we went, with English being spoken and help given freely, which was lovely. Amsterdam within […] the canal areas is easily walked and there are plenty of places to stop for food and drink if required. It's not a cheap place to do so though, but the food we had was of good quality wherever we went. Good shopping area too if that's what you're looking for. We did Park & Ride from Bos En Lammer and got the tram (14 or 7) into Amsterdam (return tickets for 4 of us included in the cost of parking,16 euros for 2 days) which stopped within easy walking distance of the hotel and is much better than driving in unless you know where you're going and want to pay for the privilege. The hotel is in several old canal houses, so no lift and steep stairs and don't expect the decor of a 5 star modern hotel. It has character though and gave us what we needed for our short stay so we have no complaints and would definitely recommend it (and we would stay there again too). We all loved Amsterdam and will be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Helt greit opphold, men ubehagelig lukt av hund i resepsjon og salong. Frokosten var grei, men litt vel enkel. Noe støy fra festlig begivenhet til tolv/halv ett fra bakgården.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Très bienGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Helt klart det bästa läget som går att få. Gammaldags stil med ett hopplock av antika möbler och en snäll hotellhund. Frukost med fönster ut mot kanalen och folklivet på en smal gata och en kanalbro. Precis i kanten på Amsterdams bästa shopping "de nio gatorna" och nära till både centrum, turiststråk och museiområdet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastisk weekend i Amsterdam"
Vi boede midt i det romantiske gamle kanal kvarter ved Prinsen Gracht. Hotellet består af 3 gamle bygninger med baggård. Det knirker lidt og receptionen lugter af hund, men det er charmerende og beliggenheden er perfekt! Vi havde vores to børn på 6 og 9 år med og de elskede hotellet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location...mediocre hotel"
07/18/14 lisa b
The best part of this hotel is the location. If you just need a place to sleep and be within walking distance of everything then this will work for you. Just a warning...if you have any problems climbing stairs this hotel is not good for you. The stairs are extremely steep!! It's almost like climbing a ladder to get to the upper floors. We brought our dog with us and she had problems getting down.
"Home Away From Home"
07/16/14 bernalgirl San Francisco, CA
This hotel is very cozy and comfortable and when you compare it with some of the other hotels in the same area it is a terrific value. We had one of the back bedrooms with no canal view. But it was charming & spacious with a desk /chair and two additional chairs. The beds are perfect! The room was completely quiet at night. There's no air conditioning but the windows open providing plenty of fresh air and a nice breeze. The breakfast is generous with much to choose from. I especially appreciated the Dutch Spice Bread and the breakfast room has a fantastic view of the canals. What a great way to start each day! The location could not have been better. Everything was walking distance yet it felt like a real neighborhood too. The staff all go out of their way to be helpful and have lots of good advice. NOTE: The stairs are steep but the staff will kindly take your suitcases up & down. We would definitely return to The Wiechmann! Our one request is that espresso be available for breakfast. It's currently available only afternoon.
"Great Location – Decent Hotel"
07/14/14 MrMente Georgetown, Massachusetts
My wife and I, plus our college-age daughter and son, took an 8 night trip to Belgium and the Netherlands in June 2014. We were in Amsterdam for three nights at the Amsterdam Wiechmann Hotel. The location was probably perfect, sitting on the intersection of two canals, in the center of all the tourist sites, but in a basically quiet area with many restaurants and brown cafés. In 20 minutes or less, you could walk to just about every place you’d want to see in the city. Since we were travelling by car, we parked at the Park+Ride and took the tram to closest stop (more on that later). We paid €733 for three nights for a family room on the 1st floor overlooking Prinsengracht canal (see photo). It had a double and two twin beds, lots of storage and original detail. The hotel appears to be 3 canal houses that were fused together as one. Our room was directly above the main lobby and entrance, but we never had an issue with noise from below. The bedrooms were probably the main parlor and ante-parlor of this floor with a windowed pocket door between the two rooms. The floor creaked and squeaked with every step. The bathroom was modern and very large, but had a wet floor shower – which basically was an indoor puddle by the time the 4th person took a shower. There was free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. For breakfast (included), there was a typical European buffet – juices, yogurt, cereal, toast, tea and coffee in tiny cups, cold cuts and cheese. The best part of breakfast was watching the buzz of bicyclists outside the huge windows going about their business – to work, daycare, running errands, and (probably) returning home from clubbing the night before! In general, I would say the property is a bit worn down but curiously eclectic in its decorations. On parking, I read you could pay an arm and leg to park in the city and risk an accident trying to drive in the city, making the P+R highly attractive. Now with experience, while the former may be true, I would disagree with the latter. On the way to the hotel, we opted for the P+R (€1/day!) and attempted to get to the hotel by tram. We needed to switch lines to avoid a 20 minute walk with luggage to the hotel, but transferring meant navigating to the next corner of the very busy square during rush hour. After dragging our bags over cobbled streets and barley missing the next tram in our direction, we gave up and took a taxi for €8. On the final day, I went to the P+R by tram on my own, got the car, and picked up the family in front of the hotel. Driving was easier than advertised and I would recommend that plan for anyone with a car.

Our room was on the corner of the first floor. The room was very spacious and there was a nice deep tub in the bathroom. The young man who checked us in was the most helpful and outgoing of all the staff we encountered. The hotel has no air-conditioning and without the windows open, it would have been very uncomfortable to sleep. And since our windows faced the canal, it was very noisy with them open. This street seems to always be busy! In the 2 days we were there, I got very little good sleep. Also, typical of Amsterdam, the interior stairways are steep and treacherous. The decor was a combination of nice old antiques, many with rather worn upholstery, and very dated, worn carpet and tacky bedspreads. The breakfast was meager at best. We ate out the first morning but made due with boiled eggs and toast the 2nd morning. While nothing was awful, I wouldn't stay here again.
"Charming hotel in Amsterdam canal district"
06/30/14 Jenny H Wagga Wagga, Australia
We stayed two nights in this charming hotel in the canal district of Amsterdam. This was the perfect introduction to Europe for my husband. We had a corner room on the first floor overlooking the canals (the steps are very steep and narrow and not suitable for people with walking problems and large suitcases can be trying). The hotel was perfect. Opening the french doors you could watch Amsterdam go by at your feet with views down the Prinsengracht canal in both directions and several streets as well! It was a little noisy as people wandered home from a night out, but the position of the room well and truly made up for this. Close to all major tourist attractions. Breakfasts were excellent and staff friendly and helpful. The bathroom was small, but adequate. This is an older style hotel, but if you want character and charm in Amsterdam this is the place for you.
"Excellent Place to stay"
06/28/14 amreding Florida
We loved this hotel. The location is awesome! We had a view of the canal and it was fun to look out at what was going on. We were 10 minutes from the Ann Frank house. The breakfast was wonderful and the breakfast room was really cool. We loved talking to the owner and he would answer any questions we had. The place was very clean. Great find!
"A gem of a hotel!"
06/25/14 mervtheswerve1957 Ingleby Barwick
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Weichmann. Location is excellent, extremely clean inside and out. Staff very friendly and accommodating. We were in Room 307 which is the one with balcony (check out front view photos). Would stay there again and would definitely recommend it to friends. Breakfast was basic but very good quality, staff couldn't do enough to help you. There is also a nice bar close to the hotel (turn left from the front door). Shame the hotel doesn't have its own bar. No complaints really. Well done management.
"Great Location, Amsterdam treasure"
06/19/14 Jack T Chicago, Illinois
Pieced together from three canal houses, the hotel is really an interesting collection. Our room was very nice even though we opted for a back room without a street view. The street view rooms must be spectacular. The hotel is very clean, and in excellent shape. If you have heavy luggage, keep in mind that elevators are strangers in these older houses. That's the only downside. Breakfast was very good, plenty of choices, fresh and tasty. We checked in on a Sunday when the staff is very much the "B" team. Not too helpful, knowledgable or interested in being of service. And apparently, several of the maid staff took and unannounced "holiday" and our room wasn't ready until about 6pm. Since we'd been up at about 2am, we failed to appreciate this. During the week, the owner man's the desk and the employees pay much more attention to their jobs. If you stay, don't forget to scratch the dog in the front lobby. He's a gem. Just like the hotel.

Ideally located for all the sights. All are within walking distance. Spotless hotel with a wonderful breakfast. Staff were friendly and very helpful. If you have trouble with stairs, this hotel is not for you as there is no lift. We had an excellent experience here and would highly recommend this hotel.
"Shabby hotel with luxury prices"
06/14/14 Jose M
I recently stayed at the hotel and it was a bad experience. I booked 2 rooms separated by a door, but dor was ... glass. No privacy at all. The foor was a new material glued on the old deck. Result: Super noisy and very bad taste. Breakfast was poor. Staff was not professional. At the end didn't want to accept 500 euros cash because they did not know how to distinguish de fake money. Bad experience. I will never return and advise others not to come.
