We stayed three nights during lovely late April weather. The hotel's location just down the street from Leidseplein couldn't be better. Nightlife, restaurants from economy to gourmet, the great museums and at the end the bus direct to the airport are all within easy walking distance. Yes, the stairs are narrow and steep but luggage is only an issue at the beginning and end. We were in a small but comfortable room on the top floor. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful in explaining how and where to get around. Breakfast was good and plentiful. This hotel is an excellant value for a '2 star' establishment.
