Lovely small hotel with character, situated I the heart of Amsterdam's bars and restaurants. Warm welcome on arrival and staff were helpful throughout, without being overbearing. The room was on the 2nd floor and the stairs are definitely not suitable if you're not stable on your feet - very steep and each step is very narrow, but that just adds... More

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.
