... and I should add, with a charming host !
The Vanguard is a wonderful place, even for a short stay. Rooms are very comfortable, well-furnished and decorated with a great taste. The hotel remains intimate and you feel like home instantaneously, thanks to Gijs. The host is indeed very nice and helpful and will arrange everything to make you feel at ease in the house and in the city.
The view on the sun rising on Amsterdam canals from the bedroom will be one of my best memories I'll keep of the town.
I definitely recommend this place to any traveler, it's a peace haven.
