For our first visit to Amsterdam, we picked this little hotel because it was close to the major art museums. Not knowing much about the neighborhood, we were delighted to find that it was on a nice quiet residential block and in a comfortable walking distance to local restaurants, upscale shopping (think Rodeo Drive) and tram stop. The room was clean and comfortable, bathroom had a spa tub and separate shower and we had a nice street view. Although we know European rooms can be small, we had booked a Standard Room, but opted for a larger Deluxe (with a supplement) when we were told our room wasn't ready. I'm glad we did, because I can't imagine 2 people in a smaller room for 4 days. Although breakfast is available in the hotel, we walked to a neighborhood restaurant each morning and ate with locals. If you are looking for less of a "tourist" experience, this is a great location.
