This Hotel is in a brilliant location. Easy walking distance to Anne Frank House (make sure you book online a good few weeks in advance - the queue was at least 2 hours every day this week). Stairs to the hotel are very steep but the staff are adept in taking your cases up and down. The rooms are well appointed and clean, we were at the front of the hotel so tram and traffic noise was heard although we were so tired at the end of the day it didn't really affect us. Buffet style breakfast was average but plentiful. Staff are very helpful and recommended the Canal tour adjacent to Anne Frank House which was well worth the price of 32 euros hop on/off for 24 hours.
Make sure you check out the area Jordaan opposite Anne Frank house. Wonderful brown cafe Cafe 't Smalle was charming and the neighborhood is so pretty. Loads of very good places to eat and drink nearby - Vlaming eten & drinken on the Prisengracht was divine but make sure you book an online reservation due to its popularity and Trip Advisor rating (well deserved).
A mirror in the main room would have been good but the bathroom one was adequate. Be careful if using the Connexion return transport to airport. Airport to hotel was fine (27 euros return) and we dutifully booked the return journey via our hotel 24hours prior to transfer. The shuttle bus failed to turn up and I had to run back into the hotel, inform the manager on duty who complained and within 20 mins we were sent a taxi at no extra cost. Luckily I had allowed for extra time so even though it was rush hour in the morning we had ample time to check in.
All in all a very nice location at a good price.
