Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was everything we'd hoped. The location was very central, not too far from the busier areas of Amsterdam but close to the museums and many restaurants etc located on the nearby canals. Great view overlooking the canal. The complimentary bar was a nice touch, which we made use of every day!

We have just returned home from a fantastic four day stay and wanted to thank the staff for everything. Our flight home was cancelled, but following advice from your receptionist, we headed straight for the KLM desk and got a different flight home. Your hotel is very special. We loved breakfast (Hazel is brilliant), being able to come back during...

As reported by the majority the service and facilities of the hotel are excellent from the superb breakfast in the morning through the wine and cheeseboard late afternoon to the comfort of the room at night.

Small and older hotell with free bar and minibar. Very central loaction beside a canal, very nice staff and quite big room. Here we feel like home and that is the main reason to stay her, beside the location and free drinks.

Throughout all of the places I've stayed in Europe and the US, this hotel takes the cake, as the most inclusive, warm, and simply luxurious hotel yet. As you've probably read, the breakfast is absolute stellar, you can eat nearly anything you want, fresh Dutch pancakes, omelets with filling as you choose, fresh bread- the works and more. The all...

Nice hotel in very central location, clean and tidy rooms, bed very comfortable. However the staff are the highlights of this hotel. Nothing too much trouble and never without a smile. Particular thanks to the lovely ladies making the fresh egg dishes at breakfast, fantastic! Would return with pleasure.
