This was my first time here, since I usually stay with the competition beginning with K.
Arriving on a Sunday night, I was a little surprised to be confronted with a buzzer and an answerphone. Your key, it said, was waiting for you in the lobby. And so it was.
This is an old house in the centre of town. You knew that. What you may not realise, is that if your room is at the top of the house, then you must be prepared to climb up into the rafters of the roof. And when I say up, it´s up. Like rope, ice axe and crampons "up". I don´t know what people do if they arrive with large suitcases, perhaps camp out downstairs.
But once you arrive, you have a room that is more high than wide, but with a slightly clinical bathroom style and the casual friendly Dutch style in the bedroom which you may know. The lighting switches require a degree in mechanical engineering.
Breakfast is served on a tray (a very full tray), and if you like the Dutch way of eating, you´ll enjoy it. Just don´t forget your key in your room, as you´ll have to climb back to fetch it.
