I found this hotel on Trip advisor and booking.com when the bed and breakfast's and house boats all seemed booked. It was more than I wanted to spend but well worth the price. The location cannot be beat. it is in walking distance to all of the sites but just far away enough to avoid the crowds. We were able to walk there with our rolling luggage from the train station easily.
THe decor was very cool and reminds me of a New York So Ho hotel - industrial chic. The bedding is crisp and clean. the wallpaper in the room on one wall was like a pleated fortuny silk. The restaurant is a hub of activity at all times of the day - great to slip away in here for a glass of wine or coffee and hang out on the leather sofa in the back. The staff are all youngish, hip but not too cool to be friendly and helpful with restaurant choices and even a luggage repair shop suggestion which worked out beautifully. they also directed us to a great Chinese restaurant in the red Light district famous for the oysters on the half shell.
I would recommend this as a romantic getaway but also it was perfectly fine for our family with 2 teenagers - I felt comfortable letting them roam out to the Dam and to shop from the hotel
