We can add out voices to the chorus of accolades for this charming, elegant, funkily-posh establishment, a little jewel box packed with pushiness, flowers and goodies at every turn:, elegance run wild. Very red downstairs. Our room on the 2nd floor, one of the two smallest in the hotel, had a full canal view, a good-sized, overstuffed (but comfortable) bed, a corner table, small desk and no room for much else, including our suitcases, which we had to line up in front of the bed against the wall, leaving just enough room to squeeze by. Here too, however, the furnishings were elegant and luxurious; the flowers I ordered were gorgeous. No need to order champagne, as I did in a fit of romantic impulsiveness, because it comes (free) with the breakfast buffet. We thought the 12 euro breakfast deal was well worth signing up for (it’s normally 18 euros), because the food was good and covered every conceivable breakfast taste. The bathroom was well-appointed, modern, scrupulously clean, and compact in the way of European hotels. The air conditioning was effective and regulated by a thermostat in the room. The single elevator for the front of the hotel was fast and always seemed to come when called. The staff was cheery, personable, and responsive. The location is ideal, right on the “border” between the fashionable, upscale Western canal district and the frumpy, atmospheric “old town”, a 20-30 minute scenic walk along the canals to the major museums, 10 minutes to the Ann Frank House. Our small room was not cheap, but we both felt that it was a good value. In fact, we totally loved our 3-night stay and have absolutely nothing negative to report. All four of our thumbs up. We plan to stay there again.
