Great hotel, in a great location

Pros: Public areas were stylish and immaculate with great breakfast included.
Cons: Stairwell up to our room a little tired compared to the room & reception/bar area, would be nice to see this upgraded. Limited seating for breakfast.
Location: Great location, close to station and all sites. Try Boca for great food in a fun and lively environment.
The welcome was great and check-in was quick and painless. Staff were friendly and the public areas were immaculate. The room was fairly small but perfectly adequate. Our room was at the top of steep narrow stairs, which was fine foe us but may not suit everyone. The location of the hotel is great too, ten minutes walk from Central Station and perfectly located for exploring all of the city.

City break

Hotel was fabulously quirky. Rooms nice and clean a little on the small side but not a problem as not much time was spent in the room! Bed was excellent super comfy! Rooms are a little noisy with regards to neighbours. Location couldn't be any better. Really enjoyed our stay would definitely consider staying here again!

good location

This is our second stay in this hotel. It is exactly as described,..chic and basic. A good base for exploring Amsterdam with only a five/ten minute walk to the train station. Worth paying for a canal view, Only down side of this stay was that the kitchen was closed and only had toast and jam for breakfast, we were not made aware of this until our arrival. Overall good value though.

Sehr gutes Hotel nahe am Bahnhof und doch sehr ruhig. Freundliches Personal. Wenig Platz zum Frühstück. Dachzimmer schön aber dürfte im Sommer sehr heiss werden. Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen! Danke.

Hyvä hotelli lyhyelle kaupunkilomalle

Hotelli oli kauniilla ja rauhallisella paikalla kanaalin varrella lyhyen kävelymatkan päässä ytimestä. Hotelli ei sovellu lapsiperheille eikä liikuntaesteisille. Talo on perinteinen hollantilainen rakennus ja huoneisiin johtavat portaat ovat jyrkkiä. Siitä huolimatta persoonallinen, pieni hotelli, joka korjaa pieniä puutteitaan ystävällisellä palvelulla ja luonteikkuudella.

Dear sir, madam, Thank you kindly for taking time to share your experiences at Max Brown Canal District on Expedia. We are happy to read you liked our location and service! As you already mentioned, we are based in a traditional old Amsterdam building, it is even a monumental building, which we are proud of. However, this means we are not allowed to place an elevator in our hotel, which would save up walking stairs. If you desire to make another reservation with us, please do not hestitate to reach out to us directly, so we can arrange a room for you on a lower floor. Have a great day, and we are looking forward to welcome you another time! Kind regards, Sebastiaan Schaafsma, Hotel Manager
