When I made the reservation, I saw all the comments about the stairs, but nevertheless, I was shocked by how steep they are. We managed absolutely fine with out suitcases. But honestly, we climbed many stairs like that in our visit in Amsterdam restaurants too. That is just part of the charm of the canal row houses.
I had some issues getting onto the WiFi at the hotel a few times. But saved myself a trip downstairs and instead I emailed the owner. They always promptly replied to my email and re-set the router, as required.
The owner(s) were very helpful with directions, restaurant and other tourist tips. She ordered us a taxi on our last night, which arrived on time the next morning.
