The family-run Hotel Brouwer drips with charm. Located in a 17th-century building, the one-star hotel offers plenty of old-world details, including faded ceramic walls, a spiral staircase (watch your head!) and exposed beams in the quiet guestrooms.
The Hotel Brouwer's building is old (and it shows), but its eight rooms—each of which is named after a Dutch Master painter—are tastefully decorated with antique wood-backed chairs and heavy desks. In some rooms, beams cross the ceiling, reminding us of a bygone era.
All rooms offer stellar canal views and modern amenities, including a telephone, TV and free Wi-Fi. Amazingly, some rooms can be accessed by a small elevator (ask for one of these rooms if you wish to avoid the steep staircases).
The private bathrooms are large, with cool oval mirrors. They all sport showers, and some also have bathtubs (ask ahead).
The historic building that houses the Hotel Brouwer has functioned as a hotel since the end of the 19th century, but it’s come a long way since its early days of straw bunks and curtained room dividers. The staff, particularly Argentinian expat Raul (who showed us around), takes a passionate interest in the hotel's history and upkeep.
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

Old Center, Amsterdam, Netherlands
About the Hotel Brouwer neighborhood
The Old Center is home to Amsterdam's main tourist attractions (with the notable exception of the most important museums). The Red Light District, Dam Square, the Royal Palace, Nieuwmarkt, and a seemingly endless supply of "coffeeshops" keep the area packed with eager—and often gawking—tourists. This is the city's touristy nerve-center. It's dirty, chaotic, crowded and, for some, enthralling.
