This hotel is situated right by a canal in the heart of the city. It is a 10 minute walk to the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Concert Gebouw, as well as the largest park in Amsterdam. It is also convenient to many shops, restaurants, the canals and other sights and museums. Also, the tram runs on the main street about 5 minutes away and you can get to Centraal Station and anything in the centre of the city in about 15 minutes. We booked our room online a few days in advance and it went through and was paid for before we arrived. The hotel as a whole was very clean and the room itself was large and clean with a TV, and a nice large bathroom and shower. It had big windows facing the front for a great view of the canal. The bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly and we spent time having an enjoyable chat with the owner and her son as well as the staff. Also we were happy that breakfast was included. Our only concerns would be that, although the food was delicious, it was limited to basically bread or toast with different types of sliced meats and cheese, or peanut butter and jam. We would have liked to have seen a wider variety; say, cereal, oatmeal etc. Also, although we had asked for a double bed as a married couple, we instead got two single beds pushed together which, while comfortable, was not the most ideal for us. All in all, though, a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again when we return to Amsterdam, which we intend to do some day.
