My wife and daughter and I stayed for three nights in March 2009. I have stayed at this small hotel on several occasions over the years. The previous owners/managers (Robert and Margaret) were most gracious, and it is a relief that the present owner/manager Henk is continuing their high standards. The hotel is in a perfect location, being far enough from the centre to be peaceful (adjacent Vondelpark), and yet near enough for convenience. The tram 2 stops almost outside the door (stop: Emmastraat), and there is one every 8 minutes or so. The hotel is spotlessly clean (something we are very keen on), and the staff are most friendly and helpful. There is a steepish stairs, but you are in Amsterdam and you will find them everywhere! Breakfast (07.30 - 10.00) is perfectly adequate. Mini bar in room, and they also have fairly decent and reasonably priced bottles of wine available if you feel inclined. Some of the rooms (called Superior rooms) are worth the extra space and may have a terrace outside with table and chairs. This hotel is resonably priced considering the location, standard, friendliness and cleanliness. Enjoy!
