The rooms are clean but are small. It is near to the Red Light Distrit and the people is funny. The cafe is very good, and typical of Amsterdam, coffe is really tasty. The worst of Amsterdam is the weather...

We like this coffee shop as it is away from the main city centre/red light and the riff raff. Good size shop with a seperate smoking room. Staff are helpful and attentive and no one makes anyone else uncomfortable. They have a menu which tells you how strong each type of weed is and can make recommendations for you. The coffee here is bloody good also. Definitely recommend...

The staff at the coffee shop were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about their product and some of the best inventory around. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, but the atmosphere and vibe was great. They have nice snacks and munchie food and everyone was as friendly as can be. I would certainly recommend a visit.

Didn't stay at the hotel but the cafe was extremely welcoming and friendly. Great tunes played and the hot choc with cream was to die for. A lovely mellow place to hang out for a couple of hours to try the "interesting" side of Amsterdam, with friendly clientele and staff.
