Checked out today after a 3 night stay and can thoroughly recommend this hotel! Good central location, the friendliest happy team of staff, great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again. The nespreso machine is a nice touch, the beds were lovely and the pillows were amazing, it was only the prospect of breakfast that got us up in the morning!...

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
