Inn Old Amsterdam is in a fantastic location but we probably wouldn't stay there again. Yes, there is a noisy pub downstairs but the noise did not go on very late and we had no trouble falling asleep. We've been all over Europe and I think the Inn's staircase (which you must climb to reach reception) is one of the narrowest, rickety sets I've ever climbed. The bathroom leaves much to be desired... there is nothing separating the floor of the shower from the toilet area mere inches away. I know this is sometimes normal in Europe but this was one of the least pleasing setups I've experienced. Breakfast was pretty much non-existant... there was some bread, stroopwafels and juice set out... There were eggs with a note that said our room had an egg boiler in the pantry. The egg boiler looked to be about 25 years old and was broken. I'm sure there are probably better inns and small hotels (which I prefer over big-box type places in Europe) in good areas for a similar price. It just wasn't that great... and I rarely give negative reviews.
