This is s great three star hotel with everything I look for: helpful staff, good location in a real neighborhood, full breakfast, all at a fair price. The hotel manager, who I think is also the owner, is generous with information and quick to offer a water or coffee. The hotel is in a close-in neighborhood, on three tram lines, and walking distance to most tourist spots if you like hoofing-it. The immediate neighborhood is changing with new restaurants and pubs on every block. The hotel itself is small and the rooms are small but clean. The front desk is staffed 24 hours. The breakfast room is also the hotel restaurant. (Good pizza). My first room was a double and was quiet and roomy enough. My second room was a single and quite small, but who stays in their room in Amsterdam?
