We booked this hotel 3 months in advance. When we got there we were given a room on the 2nd floor but asked to move due to the window opened onto the roof. The staff moved us to the 4th floor which was a lot better
Breakfast was included for the next morning for free. Wonderful staff and a plus they allowed my small dog.
The room is very, very small good just for sleeping. But no room to move around and for 2 people a bit tight. Comfortable beds. The room served the purpose to sleep.

Stayed March 2014, traveled solo

Good position, lovely people, tiny rooms. Needs a serious upgrade. It's a long time since my room was furnished with a crt television.
Please, new carpets, repaint, new wiring. But it was fun.
Breakfast room great, but no bar. Overall, you would describe the hotel as quirky, however, for the money and the rating it certainly leaves a lot to be desired. Good breakfast.

The lounge and breakfast room was great but no bar.

Comfortable, practical and great location, directly on the canal practically next to the city center. I would recommend this place for couples and also for backpackers! I was completely satisfied with the friendly staff and condition of the room.

We were very unhappy with the room we were given. Everything was visibly dirty and rickety. After making a civilized complaint to the proprietor, we were treated to an absolutely first class response! He apologized and said he had been away for three months and would take up the housekeeping failures with his staff. We were then offered a choice between two lovely rooms: one a luxury room at a neighbouring property, and the other a modern houseboat. We opted for the houseboat and had a fantastic three nights in this two- bedroom holiday house on the water, a stone's throw from restaurants and tram stops.
But this is a review of the Hotel, not of the houseboat.
The breakfast at the hotel was superb with everything you could possibly want, from fresh fruit salad to smoked salmon to do-it-yourself omelettes with various fillings, good bread rolls and croissants.
The staff were kind and friendly.
It looks like the owner is concentrating on new projects and has let this potentially sweet hotel slip to neglect. Let's hope he can lift it back up to what it must have been, judging from older traveller reviews.
Our advice is to check the room before checking in.

Room Tip: Check the room before checking in.

I stayed in this charming hotel 3 times, so I decided to come back and invited some mexican friends: a nightmare !!!!!
Dirty and not confortable
Hopefully, the boy and the lady at the front desk was very helpfull and also help us to connect with wifi as no way to connect in the public areas as mentioned ! hotel permit guests to smoke, so you can be close to some smoking rooms ! the did not changed the water of the flowers in the room: so a bad smell!
there is not control of the rooms after each check out! unbelivable !! so all the plugs were out of service, the rooms not cleaned properly, and since a while !! windows very dirty, with lots of cigarettes outside of it ! they need a new management !!!!urgently, too bad for this charming hotel nice located !

Room Tip: The rooms facing the canal are more pleasant

How do you rate a place like this. So many permutations. Firstly I didn't want to spend €145 for a night in a hotel and I also wanted car parking (practically impossible in the Dam for under €150). So I got a hotel for €145 without parking but hey, it was late and we wanted to plot up. I managed to get the car almost outside and that's €4 an hour in the Dam up to midnight and after 9. Make sure you pay for the morning the night before or your car will be gone.
Back to the hotel. The best hotel I have ever stayed in but only for the following reasons! We were in the annexe just round the corner which seemed to be 3 rooms over 3 floors. Nobody else was present so the guv just gave me the key for the front door, asked me to open the windows if I smoke and off he went. We had a 3 floor town house in the middle of the Dam for €145, who can complain? The building is excellent. loads of wood inside, big opening balcony doors/windows. Full kitchen. Feels like more of a home than a hotel. Loved it and thanks to the french chap that was working that night.

Room Tip: Get the annexe round the corner.
