We stayed at this charming hotel July 4th thru the 6th on our way back from a cruise in the Baltic. We had booked a room on the canal which was on the second floor. It was very beautifully decorated with lovely drapes, and wonderful molding on the ceiling. The bathroom was spacious and had a wonderful deep tub with shower. The only problem was that Amsterdamn was experiencing a heat wave with temperatures in the 90's. This of course was not the hotel's fault and we were lucky to be quick enough to put our request in to move to the fifth floor which did have air conditioning. There is also an elevator which is not always the case in these small hotels. The staff especially the bellman/porter was wonderful and gave us great recommendations for places to eat. We would stay there again but would book a room on the fifth floor not on the canal side as it can be quite noisy. The hotel has a nice little bar and breakfast room. We walked down the street (Singel) and had breakfast at a little cafe which only charged 7 euros for ham and eggs on a roll with tomatoes and fruit on the side, wonderful coffee also. There is also a great greek deli next door with fantastic food and very reasonable. This hotel is in the canal ring and you can walk to the central station from there.
