The location of this hotel is fantastic. It's close enough to walk to many of the major points of interest (shopping, restaurants, museums), on a lovely -- and fairly quiet -- canal and street, and convenient to the street car and bus. The renovated canal houses are lovely, and each room has individual style and character. Breakfast was excellent.
The staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, giving suggestions and advice, helping with reservations, offering advance purchase tickets to museums, etc.
A couple of warnings (echoing some other reviews): because of the nature of the hotel -- houses linked together that didn't have floors at the same level -- there are a lot of short flights of stairs. Even within the rooms themselves there can be stairs (down from door, steps into bathroom, etc.). For the able-bodied, no problem. Otherwise, it's best to call and make arrangements for rooms with as few steps as possible.
Also, while the location is perfect for seeing the city, if you plan to have a car and make excursions outside the city, you will have to plan ahead. There is no parking near the hotel, so cars have to be taken/brought by valet service, which can take some time and isn't cheap.
Overall, we had a great experience with this hotel!
