Seven Bridges


31 Reguliersgracht, Rembrandtplein,


Located in the Seven Bridges area, this waterfront canal house turned boutique hotel maintains much of its 18th-century flavor. The eight accommodations have ornate rugs, bedding, and drapes, as well as features like exposed beam ceilings, mixed-period antiques, and lots of natural light. Some rooms have sitting areas overlooking the canal, an ideal spot to enjoy the optional, in-room breakfast or watch passersby. Central to shops, museums, and restaurants, the building has a small reception area where the longtime, solicitous owners are often stationed.
