We recently stayed here for 4 nights in early July and would highly recommend this boutique gem in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. It is just 10 minutes’ walk from the central station and is located right around the corner from the Anne Frank House as well as being a 15 minute walk to the Nine Streets shopping area. There are several restaurants nearby and delicatessens where you can grab a salad or quiche and sit along the canal to enjoy. I would not hesitate in staying here again as it is in a quieter area with more locals while still within walking distance (10 minutes) to the main noisier tourist centre. Amsterdam is such a safe city, it is relaxing to walk anywhere at anytime.
The staff were extremely polite and helpful and the hotel design is really well executed with dark interiors which creates a very relaxing and homely atmosphere. There is a great attention to detail in the internal finishes. The breakfast room overlooks the garden and is a pleasant room to enjoy breakfast in, where we would sit for a good 40 minutes each morning. The waiters were so friendly and remembered our specific order for eggs and coffee each day, which is a special touch.
Beds were extremely comfortable, which is a must in any hotel!
I loved the fact that the bath was in the bedroom so you could enjoy a bath while listening to music courtesy of the provided iPod dock or watch a dvd, again the hotel provides a huge range of dvds from all genres. If, however, you are planning to stay here with a relative or friend who is not your partner, then I would request a room with a more conventional ensuite bathroom! The complimentary water was a welcome daily item. I also liked the fact that the hotel provides large size Green and Spring bath oil/shower gel/body lotion/shampoo/conditioner as this meant we could enjoy a proper bath or shower unlike at most hotels where 2 people have to share a miniature bottle per day!
I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for a romantic luxury break.
