This is a truly lovely hotel set in one of the more residential areas of Amsterdam, however it is also very close to the main city centre. We had ordered a canal view room and we presented with a top floor, lovely view of the Keizersgracht canal and a pretty street scene.
The staff were brilliant from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. They are always on hand, are always friendly, smiling and attentive. They helped us with travel arrangements around the city and restaurant recommendations.
The rooms are as you would expect in a boutique hotel, smallish and in the trendy boutique style the hotel and rooms are full of dark, rich colours. If there is a criticism it that the room is a little dark, and didn't have much 'surface' space to put things. The nightstands were very small and the table was occupied by the brilllliant free coffee machine - a nice touch.
In terms of location is it blessed by being within 10 minutes walkof the Centraal station (so no need for taxi) and even less time to reach the start of the main Amsterdam city centre area and its bars, restaurants and coffeeshops. There are some delicious bars just around the corner which are a little quieter and cosy but the street for the hotel itself is quite and peaceful.
Breakfast is a little pricey at 20euro's but in terms of quality is fine.
Overall, a great place to stay.
