This hotel is for you if you don't like overcrowded soulless city hotels from glass and concrete.
Here you will stay in a typical Amsterdam canal building in historical city center. Hotel is VERY beautifully decorated, is managed by a family and as soon as you're inside you feel that you're really a valued guest for every staff member. Wonderful black cat living in the lobby will help you feel yourself like home.
Our classic double room on 2nd floor was not large, but comfortable. We had a free safe box, two free bottles of water were put in our fridge every day. Free slippers, an iron and a small ironing board were also available in our room. The building is of 17th century, so floor sound insulation is not perfect and probably you will hear some noise from the room overhead. The bathroom with a double vanity basin was also comfortable and clean. Shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, soap - during our 7 nights stay everything was replaced as soon as used. Towels were changed every day and were perfectly clean.
Breakfast was of good quality, tasty and substantial, although identical every day and a bit pricey (€18 per day per person).
During all the day you can have free coffee or tea with cookies/candies/chocolates, the machine is in the lobby.
Hotel is perfectly situated on Singel canal, about halfway between Central station and Museumplein. 10 min walk from Dam square, 5-7 min from the tram station "Spui" (tram lines # 1, 2, 5). So it will take 15-20 min to get to the Central station or to Rijksmuseum.
To get to the hotel and back to the Schiphol we booked Connexxion Hotel Shuttle, the ride has taken about 30 min.
