We stayed here for 5 nights in March, 2011. I've been to Amsterdam many times but that was the first time together with our 18 moths old toddler. Frankly, Amsterdam is not the best destination with a little one, but we enjoyed every minutes which is also due to the great hotel service.
It has a very good location, everything is just in walking distance (well, in Amsterdam everything is in walking distance, but still..). The hotel itself is small enough to feel your self unique as the staff treats you that way.
Our room was facing to the main street, not the canal, but even it was quiet enough to be able to sleep. Room was really spacious, even with the baby cot, and the bathroom was just a buzz :)
Breakfast was delicious and the wide range of choice of free drinks and snacks in the so called 'living room' (lobby) was fantastic. On the first day we arrived home early evening -kid was really tired - and we took for ourselves some pasta from the Chinese rest close to the hotel for dinner. But we did not eat as we got full of the living room's snacks; some tipical dutch bread and ham, cheese, olives, grapes, etc. And it was really good every time to get back to the hotel for a while (changing the nappie :) ) and having a nice cup of coffe or a beer or a glass of wine. Don't miss the Porto wine !!!
Really really recommend this hotel - even with a littel one !
