Map & Directions

The easiest route into the city from Schiphol Airport is by taxi and takes 30 minutes. Alternatively, it’s 15 minutes to Central Station by NS Hispeed train and then a 10-minute tram journey to Westermarkt (take the number 13 or 17 tram), which is a 5-minute walk from the hotel. Those without heavy luggage might prefer to walk -- the train station is only 15 minutes away.

Lovingly run by the Toren family, Hotel Sebastian’s is a great choice for budget-conscious travellers looking for a central Amsterdam location. Set on the Keizersgracht Canal near the trendy Jordaan district, it's perfect for bar hopping in the evenings and shopping on De Negen Straatjes during the day.

Anne Frank House and the Royal Palace on Dam Square are also within walking distance, or you can see the sights via bicycle -- you can hire one at reception (charges apply).

More of a boutique crash pad than a full-service hotel, Sebastian’s facilities are limited but there's a swish little bar with plenty of character for an afternoon tipple or a quick lunch. A full buffet breakfast (10€ per person) is also served here every morning, including scrambled eggs, coffee and pastries.

There are just three room types, practically labeled small, medium and large. Small rooms are notably so (and the sloping ceilings in attic rooms can be a bit low), but all have neatly tiled shower rooms and a modern gothic finish, with statement wallpaper, fringed curtains and plenty of black furniture.

Comfortable beds are dressed in crisp black-bordered sheets and blackout curtains ensure a peaceful sleep. Pricier rooms have more space and picturesque canal views, while the rest overlook the hotel’s private courtyard.
