You know you are going to enjoy your stay at this lovely hotel from the amusing and very informative information Elizabeth sends to you, detailing how to get into the city and to find Synopsis. What a wonderful place to stay in the heart of the city. It was very close to the metro and within easy walking distance of... More

We stayed six nights and our groundfloor room was spacious and airy and tastefully decorated. It was also very quiet and peaceful .The bed was a large and very comfortable double and... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Synopsis and concluded that this has to be one of the best bargains in Europe. The room we stayed in (#2) was equal to, if not better than, most bedrooms in a regular house. It was spacious, modern, decorated impeccably (Martha Stewart quality). The bath had accessories and amenities we have never seen in... More

My fiancee and I spend the weekend here and we were SO happy from the minute we walked it! A gorgeously presented home (really is a home!) awaited us with a magical little garden in the back (where we had a fantastic breakfast!) Elizabeth (the owner/manager) was charming, attentive and really made us feel at home. The rooms were perfect,... More

Stayed in hotel for 4 nights over last weekend. What a charming hotel. It is central and within easy walking distance to a lot of sights, but at the same time it is situated in a quiet area, good for evening time. The breakfast was lovely, a good varied choice. The room was very clean, well equipped with a TV,... More

Really comfortable room, very helpful accomodating proprietor & staff. Great breakfast! Just around the corner from the Hermitage Museum where you can catch the Canal Bus - a 48 hr ticket to jump on & off of this is a great way to see & get around the city. Couldn't ask for a better base for a city stay.

We stayed here last weekend and found the accommodation and proprietor to be very comfortable and welcoming. The courtyard room was clean and modern, with a large bath tub allowing a long soak! Everything was provided as per a hotel stay but with more of a b&b feel. Elizabeth was welcoming without being intrusive, we would recommend Hotel Synopsis to... More
