My wife and I stayed for three nights.
The hotel is conveniently located whereby all the major attractions are easily at reach particularly if you hire a bicycle which I would highly recommend.
The hotel is formed from a converted Dutch Town House that has suffered from significant settlement over the years. Don't let this put you off as it adds even more character to this ancient and otherwise well maintained building.
The hotel is accessible from the front entrance adjacent to the Amstel canal via a number of stone steps and thereafter to your hotel room on first and above floors via a very steep and sloping stair case with handrail to the left side only which is not ideal for a right handed person trying to lumber a case up the stairs! We did manage and for the abled bodied the stair is a bit of fun.
Our room was on the first floor overlooking the canal and comprised bathroom with shower only, lobby including wardrobe and large bedroom with two adjoining single beds. The beds are so soft if it like sleeping on a marshmallow. Be careful to keep to the middle otherwise you may roll off the bed or between the two as the mattresses move round like a lilo in a swimming pool.
The rooms were well furnished, presented well and were cleaned to a good standard every day.
The staff are excellent.
One thing, albeit small, that I did find annoying was that there was no tea, coffee or whitener in our room. We did have a coffee machine with two pods of coffee, however, but my wife does not drink black coffee so went coffeeless on the first morning till we went out for breakfast.
The coffee pods (if that is the correct name for them?) are, according to the hotel users book, to be replied each day. Ours weren't replaced every day!. You can purchase additional pods from reception for 0.5 Euro.
