This hotel is on Singel and is about a 10 min walk from C Station and similar to Leidesplein. A traditional building, you enter up steps into a pleasant reception area - traditional dark wood décor. There's a bar, reading/library room and a lounge facing the canal.
There are 2 PCs with internet access ( free) - wifi is 10e a day!, and free tea/coffee facilities. At the back is the dining room. Reading room had books and games and a few Dutch magazines and papers. You could buy UK/US papers at reception.
I had a room on 1st floor, facing a small courtyard. Room was decent size, double bed and small seating area. Plenty of storage areas/cupboards. Nice bath/shower room - all v clean. Décor is traditional ( read old). TV has about a dozen channels - BBC 1 BBC2 Dutch/Belgian and CNN.
Minibar had 2 free bottles of water and that was it - no booze to buy!
Didn't have breakfast as it was 18e - you can go round the corner and have similar for a third of the price ( it mounts up if there's 2 of you).
It's location is good but at 245e a night plus city tax it isn't cheap. It's ok but there's no real wow factor or USP. There's a 2 star for half price 6 doors down and is probably better value. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with this hotel it is clean, tidy and central but that's about it and I think it's overpriced.
