This is a lovely, quaint little hotel, well situated on a canal, within walking distance to almost anything in Amsterdam.
I stayed here from April 1st to 5th with a friend. We had the rather spacious "Rita Hayworth" room, with a view of the garden, our own private facilities, very clean, and the breakfast served family style downstairs was just splendid. Add the very friendly owners and decent price, what more can you want? Perhaps a lift ... :-) The 49 steps were a bit daunting but manageable. Never forget, it's like stepping into a bit of history.
I thoroughly recommend this place and plan to come back before I'm much older ...
