I have just returned from my first trip to Amsterdam with myself, my partner and another couple. I had a great holiday bar the accommodation. I did not stay in the hotel itself so I do not know what that is like, I stayed in one of the apartments. Firstly the good points, the accommodation is greatly located, we stayed in apartment number 10 and it is only 3 minutes from Dam Square but you're still far away from the rush. It also was good for the price - if you are a group of lads on holiday not concerned about the place you stay, however for two couples which states it sleeps 4+ don't be fooled by this. You enter the accommodation and you have a table & kitchen, then a double bed next to sofa & chairs with a TV for a lounge. The bathroom is well sized and it does include an iron, hairdryer and towels, but not enough towels. Also we only got 1 toilet roll for the entire 4 day stay between 4. The worst part is the second bedroom, it is literally a room that is similar to a prison cell, a bunk bed which fills up the entire room so when you get down you have no space to get down really, and the length of the room is the length of the bunk bed, there is a sink and a light and a concreted in window, so it literally is like a prison cell. And also this bedroom has a glass door so their is no privacy as the double bed in the main part is right next to the door, so for couples this is not how you want to spend your stay. My other faults with this is there was blood on the mattress when we got there, and the window was broken so was wide open all night and was freezing as the heaters aren't very strong and motorbikes and people going past at night are loud, although if you get lucky and get the prison cell you can't hear it! This accommodation would be suited for a group of lads or one couple, not for two couples or even a family. There is an extra single bed right opposite the double bed that pulls out, so this apartment could sleep 5-6 if wanted. Overall my stay here was great in the daytime, when it came to the night and when we slept it was awful. I wouldn't recommend this apartment.

- Our small hotel is situated in a beautiful canal-house that is over 300 years old, nestled on the quiet, picturesque Singel, the oldest of the four major ring canals in Amsterdam's famed inner city. Our cosy hotel offers an oasis right in the centre of town. The hustle and bustle of the shopping streets around Dam Square, the charm of the myriad canals lined with 17th-century houses and world famous sights, such as the Anne Frank House, are all literally steps away. There are also convenient trams and other public transport options to whisk you off to all of the city's many attractions. Room information: the hotel offers 13 double and single rooms and one triple room. We serve a good continental breakfast-buffet in our light and pleasant breakfast room.
