Historical Traveller Reviews of Zosa Hotel

Special place! Comfortable, hip and friendly

from joellybaby
So glad I chose to stay at Hotel Misc for a few days with my new husband for a 'minimoon' last summer. It was characterful, hip, relaxed, comfortable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the window over a relaxed and tasty breakfast and watching passers by. We stayed in the 'Wonders' room which was lovely and romantic. There's a good interesting collection of magazines and guide books to browse, and Rachel and Pepjin are very friendly and have good suggestions and advice on exploring Amsterdam. They even left a chilled bottle of wine in our room as a surprise honeymoon gift! We had a lovely relaxed and romantic time.

The location is excellent - historical and central. It's away from the red light district and the hash tourists and feels like a lovely street. Lots of nice places to eat and explore nearby.

I can highly recommend Hotel Misc and Amsterdam. A very good choice for a memorable and comfortable stay for a reasonable price.

Best of both worlds

from MarquiseBruxelles
Quite like Amsterdam itself gathering the advantages of a international city in a village atmosphere, Hotel Misc succesfully offers the best of both worlds. The cosiness, friendship, true & personalised care of the hosts that one may expect from a B&B and the top quality of accomodation & food, Wi-fi, telephone, TV, safe, minibar, 24/24 access by magnetic key, information & bookings and overall professional service that you may look for in international hotels.

Hotel Misc is thus small by its size (only 6 rooms) but big by its ambition: ie. making sure you spend a perfect stay in Amsterdam and take home fantastic memories. Many Amsterdammers find their city beautiful (and rightly so!) but not all of them do so much to share this love with their guests as Pepijn & Rachel (the owners of Hotel Misc) do.

The other reviews have said it all about the great location, canal view, peaceful rooms, etc, which I certainly confirm. There is only one risk with Hotel Misc and that is that you might not be able to find a room available, given its increasing (and derserved) popularity!

Comfortable stay

from bhwh
Stayed here over Christmas 2005 and had a very pleasant time.

Hotel is located in a well catered for area including quality restaurants, close but not too close to RL district, walkable to Van Gogh, Heineken Mus. and Concert hall. Also worth noting, is that the New' Sq looks great at this time of year!

Very small premises (with scary staircase to the top...) with a contemporary but very comfortable feel. Our room was of a reasonable standard and good size but on the rear of building. Try to get one on the front of building if you can.

Best of all, the owner couldn't be more welcoming or happy to help. Great breakfast.

Well recommended.

A Wonderful, romantic stay in Amsterdam

from TwoTorontoTravellers
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Baroque room in October. We can't say enough positive words about Hotel Misc.

The room was very romantic. At night, we would turn out the lights, except for the chandelier above the bed (the light bulbs looked like flames when on), and would sit in the big windows that overlook a garden and listen to the city. You can hear church bells every 15 minutes from the room. The room is quiet (on the top floor but worth the climb) and very clean.

Pepijn and Rachel were amazingly helpful and welcoming people. All of their suggestions for restaurants, etc were exceptional. Have them book a boat tour for you if you have the time. It's such a calm, relaxing way to see the city.

The location was very convenient, central and safe. You are so close to everything - a couple of steps and you're in the Red Light District.

I wanted a hotel that was clean, inviting and had a bit of character. The hotel was so much more. Unlike most hotels we have stayed in, this one felt like home for a few days. We were sad to leave. We can't think of Amsterdam now without mentioning Hotel Misc. There's no place I would stay except Hotel Misc when we return.

We can't wait to visit again!

Thanks Pepijn and Rachel (and the cat!)

from 2FunTravelers
We stayed at the Misc in September, in the Wonders room which is pretty and looks out onto a peaceful garden, with the beautiful sounds of church bells.

We liked so many things about this place. Cute room, excellent location, yummy breakfast, all the ameneties we needed, and wonderful hosts, including the cozy tortoiseshell cat. Pepijn was great, very laid back but at the same time attentive and helpful.

Our experience here was perfect and we definitely recommend it!

Idyllic Oasis in the Heart Of Amsterdam

from Diabl0
Having just returned from a weekend break in Amsterdam, one of our first priorites, other than picking up the cat, was to upload a review of this lovely hotel.

Arriving late on Friday night we were immediately greeted by the cheery propriator who help carry our bags to the "Baroque Room." A steep staircase (not for the faint hearted) led us to the top floor where we enjoyed a pleasant garden view and the gentle patter of the rain on our roof.

The next night we swapped into the "Wonders Room" and saw how much time and effort is spent in creating each individual theme.

Location was ideal, centrally placed, but away from the noisy crowds.

Breakfasts were standard and Rachel and Pepijn were always willing to give sightseeing tips and local advice. The homely atmosphere they gave helped turn this good holiday into a great holiday!

Plenty of Personality and great location

from macmami
I stood 3 nights at Hotel Misc 9/19-9/22/06. The hotel is more of a bed and breakfast with 24 hour service. Pepijn our host was extremely helpful. He would give us restaurant recommendations, club recommendations and draw out routes for us on our map. The attentive service alone is why I rate the hotel so high.
THe hotel is in a great location right off o Nieumarket Square and a block or two to "China Town and the Red Light District". The hotel itself reminded me of a Hippie hangout and above all else you felt very welcome. The room was large for European Standards (I had the design room). The room was in the front so you could hear some street noise. The room and amenities itself were minimal. I would not recommend anyone to stay here who could not easily make it up the narrow winding stairs native to Amsterdam.
Breakfast was fresh breads, cheese, 1 egg and freshly squeezed orange juice with great coffee.
It definitely wasn't a luxury hotel but the experience was well worth it and I would definitely stay again.

Thanks to Rachel & Pepijn

Great hotel, great people, great location

from lofty1943
Have just returned from four nights at the Hotel Misc (16-19Sept). Other reviewers have given very good reports on this canal-side
hotel which is the reason we went there. We were not dissapointed.

The two people running the hotel, Rachel and Pepijn could not do enough - we borrowed an umbrella, borrowed books, borrowed a pass for the botanical gardens, took their advice on what to see and where to go, had no charge made for a five minute phone call to the UK.
We stayed in the Rembrant room at the front of the hotel and we overlooked the canal. This really is old Amsterdam. Comfortable room with plenty of Rembrant pictures, clean, usual facilities including two comfortable chairs in the window.

The stairs however are very steep and winding and would not suit a disabled person. Good breakfast of cheese, friut, jams and super fresh bread. Because of the very good location we did not use public transport. The central station, Dam Square, flower market, canal cruises, main shops, botanical gardens and as many canals and bridges as you could ever want are all within 15 minutes walk. The red light area is even closer but poses no problem.Plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants close by.

A real traditional Dutch "narrow" house that you see in the paintings and not to be missed. Not just for younger people, my wife and I are 60 and 63.

Wedding night

from herman6
Last week we had our weddingnight in the hotel Miscc, and it turned out to be an excellent and very nice stay, in the first place thanks to the lovely owners who are friendly and helpfull -something that is very rare to find in Amsterdam. The room we got was named 'wonders', and that is exactly what it was -everyone who wants a romatnic night in this hotel should book that room. In the morning, in fact it was already noon, we got a very healthy breakfast who helped us to get rid of a hang-over.

Booking disaster

from JNickP
Appalling booking system. Hotel Misc accepted our booking and credit card details via their website when actually fully booked, then let us know only weeks later, after the rest of our trip was completely organised, and it was too late to book anywhere else good. The hotel itself may be fine but we will never know. Do not trust their booking system.

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam

Watch out for the bikes. While Amsterdam is very easy to get around on foot, make sure you look both ways before crossing, anything, anywhere. The bike traffic can be very heavy, and fast.

3 great pubs for fans of continental beer These three tips were given to me by my bar manager friend who is an expert in these things. We tried all and they were indeed great, so I pass on the recommendations. All have a really good range of continental beers, a lot of atmosphere, and the option of plates of tasty sausage or cheese to enjoy with your beer. There's a good beer shop opposite Gollem too. 1.) Arend's Nest - Herengracht 90, 2.) In de Wildeman - Kolkesteeg 3, 3.) Gollem - Raamsteeg 4

Restaurants Make sure you make reservations in advance for restaurants as it's unlikely you'll get one last minute.
