Townhouse Hotel, which is really more of a modern Dutch B&B operated by the exceptionally knowledgeable Christian was a great value during our stay. Christian made sure we had information on how to gain access to the building prior to our arrival and even offered to upgrade us to a room with a view of the local canal. We politely passed due to the fact that the rooms on the side of the canal tended to get quite warm in the afternoon and we prefer a cool room. The room itself was immaculately clean and tastefully yet simply appointed. The only downside to the room as far as we were concerned was the water pressure was on the low side but otherwise we found the bed quite comfortable and we had more than enough space for our belongings. The stairs to the building are quite steep but not a huge problem and Christian actually carried on the bags up the stairs himself. Each morning, we had a wonderful breakfast on the main floor which included Christian's famous scrambled eggs, which are not to be missed. He even was so kind as to prepare breakfast a bit early on our departure date. The best part though, was Christian's wealth of knowledge about Amsterdam. He pointed us in the direction of Joordan and renting bikes to Vondelpark which were highlights of our stay. He also told us when to check out the Anne Frank house which helped us avoid lengthy lines and gave us suggestions on places for drinks, Nemo and SkyLounge which were both great vantage points to see the gorgeous city. We would recommend Townhouse to those who want to experience a more authentic Amsterdam because once you get outside the inner circle of the city you can see the forest beyond the trees. Amsterdam and its locals are a beautiful thing to behold.
