The staff was very nice, and the hotel's ambition to be a nice boutique hotel is Lovely. But overall I am sad to say I did not enjoy my stay here. I was here for three nights and stayed on the top floor. No elevator so I had to carry the heavy bag. I looked for exits in case a... More

Quirky-cool room, Great and I mean GREAT staff. Yes the rooms are small and there is no air conditioning but that is the normal here. (I have to say that anyone who is surprised by this and out of ignorance writes a poor review on these factors, maybe shouldn't be traveling to Europe or maybe should read a travel book... More

Spring break in Amsterdam. This hotel was comfortable and in a convenient area for exploring the city. We had a small bedroom but very comfortable. Bed on a sort of platform with porthole windows overlooking the canal. Very Amsterdam, great !

So conveniently located. All the major sights of Amsterdam are within walking distance of the hotel or,if lazy, the tram network. Service is impeccable and the ability to relax in the magical private garden is an added boon. Plenty of steps mind you. All in all a great basis for Amsterdam.

First off, be prepared for the stairs. No elevators here--the city will not allow them. And the stairs corkscrew slowly up and even more slowly down.These are two old houses side by side on intersecting canals. The young lads who run the place will give you a free canal cruise with nibbles and drinks at 11 or at 4--your choice.... More

The room we had was lovely. Three large windows, very modern bathroom, good quality toiletries. The breakfast was very good, the cooked breakfast was done to order, and plenty of choice. The only down side was the number of steps, and the fact that at times to go down you also had to go up.
