Spend three nights here in early May. This is more like a B&B than a hotel - very personalized and laid-back. The reception/breakfast/relaxation area was like being in someone's home. We got so relaxed at breakfast, it was difficult getting started on our touring. The staff here are top-notch - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated a block from the Tram, a block from Vondelpark, five minutes from the museums, and in a pleasant neighborhood with shops and restaurants nearby. We chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and were most pleased.
