We spent a week here over New Year. The first 2 nights were in a garden-view room, which was a little cramped for our liking, with awkward bedside lamps and those annoying bedcovers. However, fortune had it that we were then transferred - for a totally different reason - to the canal-view room opposite. Suddenly the extra 4 sq.m. made an enormous difference, not to mention the view and other comforts we lacked in the first room. This also changed our mind completely about the hotel!
As for hosts Rachel & Pepijn, nothing is too much for them: from carrying bags up the steep stairs and making a mean breakfast coffee to offering helpful tips on sightseeing activities and even printing out our boarding passes for the flight home!
The hotel is rather pricier than our usual choices, but this is Amsterdam and the option of a 17th-century canal house in an unbeatable central location made it worthwhile. Free wifi is available (and works properly!), as are coffee-makers and free refreshments in the rooms.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to others. Everything was perfect - well, maybe not the weather, but that's no fault of the hotel's! (Perhaps an apron at the breakfast bar would lend a more professional touch,.. if I may be so bold as to suggest anything.)
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
