My wife and I left the kids at home and whizzed off to Amsterdam for a quick weekend break to see a gig. We arrived at Amsterdam Centraal Station and easily found our way to 'Harlem' street, off which the hotel is located. Harrlemmedrdiijk is a real eclectic mix of boutique stores, local grocery outlets selling fresh cheese, bread etc, oh, and the odd coffee shop! Unlike other parts of town, the coffee shops are in the minority and the mix of people wandering this area are a more mature and discerning sort!
The hotel is split into a lovely little restaurant/cafe and separate from this, through a separate door accessed from the outside are the rooms.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, both in their service as well as their advice on travelling around town etc. The food was really excellent - think Jamie Oliver on his way to a Michelin star! Informal but incredibly tasty and well presented. Whilst the range isn't vast, its perfect for a pit stop, a breakfast or a quick cuppa!
The rooms are tastefully decorated, in a shabby chic style with re-used materials mixed in with some nice contemporary furniture. We were in the top room (there are 2 on the top floor and the stairs are very steep). I would say compact and thoughtfully designed to maximise the space is polite! It was fine for us for a night at a price that didn't break the bank.
The lunchburger and goats cheese salad were our lunch choices. Both great. The waiter and kitchen staff were very friendly and unimposing. Just pay at the counter when you are ready - no rush to vacate your table here!
There was no issue leaving our bags whilst we explored the city prior to flying home. The staff made us feel comforted they would be well looked after. I took a card and was encouraged to spread the word and come stay again. I think we will, for sure.
