This hotel is set right on the Singel Canal, next to the Flower Market. The absolutely best thing about this hotel is its location, because it is close to the centre and tram stops, plus easy walking distance to the train station and the Anne Frank Museum. The building itself is a traditional tall and thin canal house and therefore there obviously is no lift and a very windy staircase. There are no rooms on the ground floor so if you have a problem with stairs then this might not be the hotel for you. The room was very tired, though clean enough, but needed some TLC....one of the curtains was half hanging off the rail, and the shower rail came off when it was moved an inch! The receptionist who checked us in didn't know how to find our room, so we did wonder if we had checked into Fawlty Towers! Breakfast was fine although it is worth getting it quite early because they started to run out of things by the end. Hotels in Amsterdam are quite expensive, so we thought that this hotel probably wasn't worth the money, though for one night, it was good to be located so centrally.
