De Leydsche Hof
Ranked #129 of 340 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 April 2016

The De Leydsche Hof hotel is a beautiful old building located in the centre of Amsterdam city. The building over looks one of the many old canals in the City and is close to lots of very nice bars and cafes. It is also only a short walk to most of the main sights and museums. Despite being in the city centre our room was very quiet and we had a great sleep. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. They advised us about where to go for food and drink and about the shops etc.This is an excellent place to stay and I would recommend it.

We stayed at De Leydesche Hof for a weekend break having the double room overlooking the canal. It was spacious, warm, light and airy - everything we could have asked for. The bed was comfortable, everything very clean and the Wifi great.It was very convenient for the sights of central Amsterdam and very evocative of traditional Amsterdam being situated on a quiet canal. We spent most of our stay walking along the canals direct from De Leydsche Hof.

We arrived late at night but it was easy to find and only a short walk from the tram. Although the bell appeared not to work (we heard it working later during our stay) a quick phone call alerted the inhabitants to our presence outside. Frits was friendly and very helpful explaining what was to see nearby and how to get t the places we wanted to visit. Breakfast was expansive without being over elaborate and served at a time to suit us. (We were the only people staying at the time)

De Leydesche Hof was everything we wanted and gave us a real feeling for Amsterdam. However as other reviewers have said it has no lift and if you have mobility difficulties or struggle with stairs this is not the place to stay.

Stayed: March 2016

Didn't need the trams. 10 to 15 minutes walk, always interesting, to the museums, Anne Frank house etc. Lots of bars and restaurants in area. Very helpful owners, esp. Frits. Our room was recently refurbished. Very comfortable. Would be five stars with an elevator and no mosquitoes (keep the windows closed). If you can't do stairs then not for you

Perfect location, truly downtown! In the same street as the bench from the movie "the fault in our stars". You can reach everything by foot in the city centre!

Owners are very friendly and know Amsterdam very well. They referred me to a lot of great restaurants and museums.

Room is very spacious for a B&B in Amsterdam!

Room Tip: The room/apartment with canal view offers a fantastic view over the canal!

We had the pleasure of staying here 31st of July for 2 nights,

This is not a massive soulless chain hotel it’s small and personal . Simply everything we could have hoped for.

The room is the 2nd floor (room 3 ) the room was hands down the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. There is a mosquito net and a great strong fan provided. There is a flat screen TV, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
I wanted to stay somewhere that was a bit of the real Amsterdam and this hotel provided that feeling. A truly warm welcome by a great host who took the time to show us all the landmarks and how to get there. The wifi was free and a great addition.

The location is outstanding 15 mins walk from main attractions.
If you want a good honest beautifully clean room go here!!
Its right by the canal and the view is beautiful!
If you want a/c a pool and a gym go somewhere else …. This place a true jewel and a fantastic find

Thank you for a perfect stay


Room Tip: room 3 is large and beautifully cosy

Hotel De Leydsche Hof is a 17th century golden age canal house, situated on one of the premier canals in the grachten gordel (canal neighborhood) of Amsterdam.

The owners decided to keep the original name of the property as Hotel de Leydsche Hof. The rooms of Hotel de Leydsche Hof are beautifully decorated and roomy and can be reached by easy staircases (there are no elevators in the house). Each room features a seating area, cable TV and free wi-fi. The private bathroom has a shower and toilet. Loes and Frits, the owners, will be serving breakfast each morning if so ordered. Breakfast is served in the breakfast room which in the front of the house overlooking the canal.
