Review of Seven Bridges Hotel in Amsterdam.

Seven Bridges Hotel – Gorgeous 300-year-old merchant’s house with great canal views.

In a beautiful part of the historic canal ring, overlooking a lineup of seven bridges across Reguliersgracht canal, Seven Bridges Hotel is a beautifully-maintained canal house.

A romantic retreat with old-fashioned hospitality, Seven Bridges is a cozy base for exploring the museums, galleries, and shops of the canal belt, while the nightlife of Rembrandtplein nearby attracts night owls.
