Situated in an 18th-century house on the Singel waterway, the two-star Hotel Hoksbergen has been a hotel since Anne Frank's days. Overall, the scene is nothing fancy (and a bit worn), but little touches make this central, historic property worthy of consideration.
Every nook and cranny of the Hotel Hoksbergen's 14 guest rooms is bright and super-scrubbed. Overall they are simple affairs, but the lace curtains and red geraniums lining the windowsills dress it up a bit. Rooms offer street or canal views and are equipped with a telephone, television, and safe.
The private bathrooms are small but adequate.
In addition to its guest rooms, the Hotel Hoksbergen also rents apartments.
The Hotel Hoksbergen is the spot for people who prefer the perks of a smaller place. Guests can be sure of personal attention. Plus, the Hoksbergen is close to many tourist sites—the Anne Frank House, Red Light District, Dam Square and Nieuwe Kerk are all within a five-minute walk.
Breakfast, included in the room rate, is served in a pretty room with inspiring canal views. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the hotel has no elevator and steep stairs.

Old Center, Amsterdam, Netherlands
About the Hoksbergen Hotel 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.
