“A Special Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Great location in the best part of Amsterdam. A beautiful old building with stylish modern, romantic and cosy interior. Beautiful garden to match which is stunning even in midwinter.

Great setting for a hotel which is fantastic in every other way. Very comfortable room - we booked one of their 'Exceptional Rooms' which is well named. Very quiet and looks down over the garden and across towards Prinsengracht. Has everything one could wish for, including lots of space, bath as well as shower, great bathroom extras, very comfortable bed, Perfect.

Memorable public rooms. Lovely dining area with the best views of the garden and a bar looking towards the canal.

Good breakfast buffet with hot items available for extra.

Some nice restaurants nearby for dinner, notably Prego in Herenstraat - see separate review. Hotel very happy to advise.

Staff very friendly and welcoming and helpful in every way. A special place and highly recommended.

Very nice hotel but defiantly not with 300.00 British pounds per night
They also made a huge mistake with my payment and they held 800 pounds as a holding booking fee then charged my bill also at the end
I couldn't access my 800.00 for a week until I got visa recovery to act on this for me
The hotel did not notice this mistake until I alerted them
Very disappointing ending to my stay

This is on a quiet canal side street, not far from the center of Amsterdam. It offers a real "neighborhood feel" for a visitor, rather than a hotel location. The manager was very helpful, and let us in to leave our bags even though we arrived early. From here we set out daily and mostly on foot to explore the city. The room was comfortable, but the bathroom was designed for miniature people, barely enough room to turn around!
Nice to have a coffee maker and small fridge right in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, rather than right on the street

Amsterdam is excellent especially when you can stop being a tourist. I was not well this trip but the comfort of the room, bed and the peace of watching the canal, made me have a fondness for the hotel that I will never forget. It was our second trip here this year and we had the same room both times. The bathroom is small but has everything you need including a roomy shower and excellent bath. I really needed a home and it was a very good substitute.

Room Tip: Canal view best and worth paying extra for the additional space

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year. Loved this place. Friendly chatty staff and cool interior. Great bar at the front of the hotel and very good location. DVDs were available on reception. Breakfast was very good.

As advertised! Clean, modern, convenient, and a wonderful host! Perfect for a couple.... Elevator, comfortable bed, coffee machine... Perfection! Located just behind the main square, in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood- just a 5-10 minute walk to everything. Will definitely stay again!!

I loved staying for a few days at this wonderfully located little hotel! I had the delightful impression of being inside a contemporary version of a 17th century dutch master painting. It's all about black and purple with the perfect amount of light. I don't travel that much, but the staff is the friendliest people I have ever met.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the canal or the garden.
