I was amazed at how wonderful and friendly the staff was at Boutique Hotel View and if I make it back to Amsterdam (which I will) I will stay at this hotel. When we first got to the hotel the front desk was incredibly warm and friendly, and made it clear that if we had any question to ask. And that warmth and helpfulness continued with all the staff. The location worked out well for us and I would (and have already to friends) recommended this hotel. The only issue someone might have is the stairs and no elevator (which is very common in Amsterdam from what I heard), so if unable to navigator stairs due to mobility issues you would want to stay in lower floors. That being said, the lady at the front desk insisted on carrying our two 50 lbs bags to the third floor for us. When my partner offered a tip, she said "no, you're are at my house now". (Like I noted the staff is Amazing)!
