This is a great hotel with a very good location for avoiding excessive noise and traffic. It is off the (Singel) canal within fairly easy walking for certain sites, e.g. Lakenhal, Rijksmuseum for Folkart. For getting to the university the walk is longer, or take the bus on the street parallel to the hotel to the Witte Singel. For walking to the central train station allow yourself at least 10 minutes.
If steps and elevators are an issue, be aware that the staircases in this apartment are a bit steep. The rewards however, for enjoying a quiet atmosphere make that challenge worthwhile. The kitchenette is very useful; be prepared for a fancy, high-tech electronic cooking stove. The hotel owners were very accomodating, friendly and helpful. We arrived in the middle of the night, and the management made sure someone was there to great us with a smile, help us with our luggage and with our car. Their car park arrangement is very fair and extremely useful.
