This quaint little hotel is set just off the lovely picturesque Vondelpark, you can be in the park in literally 20 seconds walk from leaving the hotel. I had on the the (very small) back room which overlooked the park, the view was beautiful which overlooked the park and a nice little stream at the back of the hotel. My only gripe with this room was that is was very small indeed - the smallest room I have ever stayed in, the bed was just about big enough for me at 6 feet 1 and there was just enough room to stand up in the room itself. Please don't be put off by this though as everything was lovely and cosy and all the amenities were available such as TV, en-suite shower and safe, if you aren't going to be spending much time in the room then I suppose this doesn't matter too much. Also I paid quite a lot of money for this tiny room - £320 for 4 nights which I though was a little expensive considering the size of the room and that breakfast was not included in this price, it may have been that it was this price due to the park view that I had but I did notice that the other rooms without a park view were considerably larger than mine. Hotel staff were charming and welcoming and always more than happy to have a chat or assist with anything you may want to know. The hotel is very small with a medium sized breakfast room serving basic cereal and toast so nothing to write home about there really, The housekeeping of the rooms was good and always on time and unlike other hotels that I've stayed in the housekeeping staff were pretty quiet about their business which meant that if you wanted a lie in bed you could without being woken up. There is also a tram stop about 5 minutes walk which will take you into the City Centre and costs about 2 euros but you can buy a 24/48hr pass which works out a good deal. There's an array of upmarket restaurants and bars close by if you want an evening meal and also the Albert Heijn supermarket is 10 minutes walk from the hotel so you can stock up on groceries. All in all a delightful little hotel in a perfect location, just a shame I was charged so much for a very small room but I would certainly stay here again. One last thing that I though was great was that I could sleep with the window open every night and all I could hear was birds from the park (with the exception of a few people in the park). 7 out of 10.
