“superb position, lovely house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Well informed and attentive staff. Clean rooms with adequate facilities. Of note is that you get a code from front desk for the wireless internet which also works in your room, is reasonably fast aswell. Excellent shower, rainforest. Of warning is that not alot of privacy for toilet in room. Bed is very soft, not great if you have back issues. Several power points, including an English fitting.

Five minutes walk from the station and you are canal-side, looking up at the 18th century front of what is a much older house behind. Inside is a surprise: the breakfast area is light and spacious (the breakfasts are extraordinary value) and the rooms are modern: black floors, modern furniture, no unnecessary frills. Everything has been carefully thought through and works perfectly. We were on the top floor in a courtyard room (you can't actually see the courtyard, we were too high) and there was absolute quiet despite being in the city centre.
The owners were friendly and helpful - they booked Rijksmuseum tickets for us - and someone was always available despite it being a very small hotel.
The position could not have suited us better: 5 minutes south and you're in Chinatown and the red light district; 5 minutes west and you are on Damrak, 5 minutes north and you are crossing the river Ij on the free ferry.

Room Tip: Stairs are steep so ask for the ground floor is that would be a problem.

A wonderful, smaller hotel near the Central Station. It's very easy to walk, take the tram, train, ferry… The owners are lovely and very helpful with advice and such. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, quiet and fun. They have great taste!
Not for those who may have a hard time up steep stairs though. Ask for a bottom floor room.
To ge settled in town, take a later afternoon canal ride. It's slow then. You can get a quick feel for the city and what you want to return to.
Amsterdam is a lovely, friendly city but watch out for the bikes. They own the road!!

Room Tip: We stayed at the top/front- beautiful and quiet, steep stairs and a bottom room/front- beautiful but...

The hotel is situated about a 5 minute walk from the station and is an excellent location for all the major landmarks/areas. Room was basic but clean tidy and had a great jacuzzi bath. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Breakfast was a basic continental but was fresh and tasted wonderful (you can also choose from scrambled eggs, pancakes or fresh fruit). I would highly recommend staying here without hesitation and we will be returning as soon as we can.

We stayed here 21-24 March 2014 and our stay was brilliant. 600m from main station and 5 mins walk and you are in the middle of everything. Wonderful view over a canal. Breakfast was lovely and owners very happy to help with booking tickets and giving invaluable tourist advice. Definitely recommend to everyone we know.

Room Tip: Go for a canal facing room

Great location, rooms, service, breakfast, everything... If there is a room available, book it! And be sure to follow their recommendations for restaurants! We really enjoyed our stay here and we'll stay again! No complaints from us. The breakfast is really good and well worth the price!
