My husband and I stayed here 10/11/12-10/15/12. We stayed in the Old Dutch Suite. We loved our room, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect. There are unbrellas you can borrow. We also borrowed an adapter for my cell during our stay. There is one computer you can use for free. It was usually available when I wanted to use it. Short walk to/from the train station, right across the street from the canal ride, maybe a 20 minute walk to the Anne Frank House, and close to many restaurants and bars. There is a grocery store next door- good for snacks, and it was only a 5 minute walk to do laundry. Breakfast was O.K. What they had was good, just not much of a selection for me. Bread, cheese, meat, cereal, small oranges. Coffee, hot cocoa, and juice to drink. I will definitely stay here again and in the Old Dutch Suite. We really loved this unique room. Nice decor, and a nice patio area off the room. The only downside is there is no shower curtain so some water does end up on the bathroom floor. I had read about this in previous reviews so it didn't surprise me.
