Recently renovated with copper roof in the entrance and arty, trendy decor - lots of wood and interesting lighting. The rooms are quite small but very stylish. Help yourself informal breakfast which is very nice. Best of all is the location, on a quiet street by the canal - 15 min walk from the central station and close to the... More

do not have one complaint, fab room looking over the canal, friendly staff and great breakfast. recommend and will be back. the rrom was very chic and it was fantastic to stay in a real amsterdam narrow house rather than purpose built hotel. it only has 2 stars as there is no lift but we would give 4 stars

This hotel was great. The beds and pillows were comfortable (despite the terrible jet lag we had!), room was clean, and the staff spoke excellent English and were all very courteous. There was no AC, but thankfully the windows were big and there was a decent breeze and it was not too hot. Breakfast was good too with free wifi!... More
