Four star hotel that is on the verge of being five ! The location on the Singel is perfect. A quiet street only a short (5 min.) stroll to the Damtrack, flower market, Rembrant Square (restaurants), and canal cruises.
Old polished wood makes this hotel a charm to be in where it is easy to visualize travellers of yesteryear dressed in their finery. (Sad today that most folks wear jeans for cocktails) The bar is a delight but be aware a "martini" means white vermouth, not an american style gin or vodka martini. Best to order vodka with ice.
Our room, small suite (#210) overlooking the canal was one of the most romantic rooms we have been in. Superb housekeeping, comfortable bed with nice linens. You can sit for hours gazing out the window (that opens) overlooking the canal traffic.
Breakfast is typical european with scrambled eggs and bacon for foreigners from North America. Free cappicinno night and day (automated serve your self) and pastries in the afternoon when you come back from a day of touring.
I would suggest five stars if they had robes in the rooms.
Would I return to this hotel = absolutely, and rebook #210.
