“Comfortable but Slightly Quircky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

I have stayed here five times over the last 4 years.
They look after you and try to be helpful (and succeed).
Great canal views. Perfectly placed for access to all the areas and resturants.
Very good breakfast.
An old Amsterdam house so the stairs are steep.
A bit dark in some rooms - needs brighter lighting.
I like it and will go back (again)
Could use a sharp eye on maintenance and refurbishment, things are getting a bit worn and might need replacing.

Lovely, well situated hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. The owner and staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was very nice and a good value. Rooms were basic but clean and pleasant. The one issue, which others have mentioned, is that the stairs are extremely steep and there is no elevator.

Small hotel in a good central location. Staff is very helpful, good breakfast. Great value for money. The stairs are quite steep, please keep that in mind but should be no issue for most people. I was pleasantly surprised with this stay.

This small hotel has the perfect, quiet, position overlooking the canal and minutes from the museum quarter.
It is warm, clean and comfortable with good beds and offers an excellent breakfast (with great pancakes!)
Nathalie is an exceptional host; knowledgeable about things to do, transport etc and so warm and welcoming .
There are lots of steep stairs which might be a problem if you're not very mobile but, this is Amsterdam, all the old houses of character are like this.
I shall definitely be going back-it was delightful.

Room Tip: You could have a party in 103! Great canal view too.

I was on the first floor, small room with no view. Could only get in one side of the bed.

The bathroom was terrible, the shower was practically in the toilet. When showering, the water went everywhere! All over the toilet, toilet paper, towels.

No tea/coffee making facilities - no kettle. There was no iron either.

Did not have breakfast, which was looked overpriced compared with the lovely cafes nearby.
Stated online it had a garden, but we saw no evidence of a nice garden to sit in.

Disappointed. Sheets were not changed at all. Not acceptable.
Not enough toilet paper provided either. I feel customers are misled as our room was nothing like the pictures online.

We were in room 304, which was steep climb up the stairs, but gave a good view down the canals. The room was large with a big bathroom including bath. It was very clean and and warm and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are well worth the money, and you can get any variety of pancakes and the breakfast room is very pleasnat, especially if you get a window seat. It is ideally placed for the museums (the Rijksmusuem takes all day). There are lots and lots of places to eat nearby. The walk down into the centre is pleasant and it is easy to get a trm back if you don't fancy the walk back again. I would definitely stay here when I come again. The only improvement it could make would be some double beds instead of twins.
