Having read the excellent reviews on trip advisor we had great expectations. No point in repeating everything others have said but here are my comments - yes the stairs are very steep and if you ask for a room on the upper floors you have to climb up to three flights, all steep, all narrow. At the risk of upsetting some travellers, this is not the place if you are a large person - apart from the narrow stairs, the rooms are also narrow and the bathroom is compact. We had a room on the Radhuisstaat - it is a very busy road with a lot of traffic and noisy trams. That said, I am a light sleeper and was fine with ear plugs! There is also the nearby Westerkerk with bells which chime every 15 minutes. We had a balcony,( I don't think the canal view rooms do though), and we found this a bonus because the room was quite dark and if you want to put your make up in daylight, then a balcony is helpful! I think smokers might request balconies so this might also influence your choice, either way. Our room was a bit tired décor wise, but the bathroom looked like it had been refurbed quite recently. You get complimentary shower gel/shampoo and soap. There is a decent sized fridge. The staff are fab and will carry your luggage up and down for you. We got BBC1 on the telly!!!! The hotel is near the lovely Jordaan district which was our favourite district in Amsterdam. Ann Frankhuis is a couple of minutes away and we could see how long the queue was from our balcony, which was useful. Fresh flowers in the room on arrival - nice touch - and a free drink (non alcoholic). Rooms will be tidied and new towels changed every day - you may have to ask although they normally asked us. In summary, a great location, comfortable place to stay with decent breakfast and lovely staff
