Hotel Brouwer or Hotel Keizershof?

Can anyone offer me guidance on which to choose? Looking for a six night stay in August , a single middle-aged lady, who wants clean and a comfortable bed (bit of a bad back) but doesn't need luxury. Both have rooms available....Brouwer has a small single at a somewhat lower price than the double for single occupancy (on top floor?) at Keizershof.

I am, btw, SO excited about this trip. First time in years that I've spent more than a few days in one city and am so looking forward to being able to wander about without rushing from one must-see to the next!

I stayed at the Hotel Brouwer. Make sure that your single is on the floor reached by the elevator if you have a bad back. I loved my single room. I looked right out onto the canal. I was there the weekend of the world cup game and saw the parade through the canal. It was incredible. I thought that the breakfast was good, the people nice and the location--easy walking to the train station and many sights, excellent. I can't speak for the other hotel.

I also thought Hotel Brouwer was a nice place for a solo traveler. Location is great, there is a VERY small elevator which is needed because the stairs are treacherous. The single bed was clean and the bathroom surprisingly large. Breakfast is always the same which can get boring, but it was just right for me.

We have stayed at the Hotel Keizershof before and will be staying there in June. If I remember correctly, we stayed on the 3rd floor before and had to climb a very steep spiral staircase to get to the 3rd Fl. If you do not choose the Brouwer, as two posters have recommended, make sure to contact the Keizershof directly and ask about what floor is available and how would you get to it with a bit of bad back. Happy travels.

We stayed at Keizershof a few years ago and had a room on third floor--up a steep spiral stair case. Just be aware that there is ONE toilet for four rooms up there--meaning that eight people will probably be sharing that toilet. Never again….
