Offering 11 simple and charming rooms with canal or garden views, this family-run operation is conveniently situated along one of Amsterdam's most popular shopping streets.
Pros: Old-world charm. Central location. Free Wi-Fi.
Cons: Mostly shared bathrooms. Steep staircases.
Located along the main shopping street of Prinsengracht, this quaint hotel also puts you close to great dining and nightlife as well attractions like the Foam Photography Museum. The lovely canal house setting offers a vibe that is pure old-world Amsterdam with narrow staircases. Rooms at the Hotel Prinsenhof vary in size and shape, but all sport big windows and dark wood furnishings that work well with the forest-green carpets and beamed ceilings. Free Wi-Fi is a big perk, and other amenities include a radio, alarm clock and small seating area in each room. The large windows offer canal views in front and garden views in back. Just note, one of the rooms in back has a window that opens onto a bare wall, so ask ahead if you want a room with a view.
Two rooms are equipped with private bathroom facilities and the rest share basic bathrooms with black-and-white tiled floors.
Breakfast is included in the room rate, and all areas of the hotel offer complimentary wireless Internet access to guests. There is no elevator, but the friendly staff will help you haul heavy luggage upstairs using an outdoor hook and pulley system (in the classic Amsterdam fashion!).
Don't miss the community message board in the lobby, where previous lodgers have left tips on nearby dining, drinking and sightseeing options.

About the Hotel Prinsenhof neighborhood
The most elegant area within the city center, Grachtengordel South features opulent residences, mansion-lined streets and a hot nightlife scene. The area boasts both Rembrandtplein (the city's one-time butter market) and Leidseplein (a former horse and buggy drop-off point). Both squares have been reborn as hot spots for bars, clubs, restaurants and no small number of tourist traps.
