Upon reading other great reviews, we decided to book this hotel for our 2 night stay in Amsterdam. We were not disappointed!
After a bad experience from unfriendly Parisians, Amsterdam was a definitely a refreshing change (with the exception of Maurya Indian Restaurant - Don't go there!) Although we arrived 2 hours early, management was kind enough to let us check in and offered us refreshments as we waited for housekeeping to finish. They also helped carry my 50lbs worth of luggage up 2 flights of narrow stairs, free of charge, there was no way I would've made it up there by myself lol..
Room- We took other reviewer's advice and for a little more, booked a deluxe canal view double room. Decorated in pink (my fave!) and brown, it was such a cute and spacious room! The view was gorgeous, that and on top of the hospitality made this hotel extremely romantic and cozy.
The room was very clean. The sheets and towels were all fresh. The bathroom was simple. Although the bed was a little dusty but a lot of buildings in Amsterdam are older and the opportunity to stay in the cute Dutch buildings is an experience by itself. Overall, the room was very comfortable to stay in.
Like another reviewer said, the service was first class! The owner, Natalie (?), made us feel right at home, but we still had our privacy. Breakfast is served until 11am in the morning, for late-risers like us, it was really nice to be able to roll out of bed and walk down the stairs for made-to-order scrambled eggs! For 10euros, you get eggs of your choice, baguettes, toast, an assorted variety of fruit, cheese, sliced meat, coffee, juice, milk, and yogurt.
The hotel is in a great location, you can literally walk everywhere and yes to the Red Light District or just hop on a tram right outside the hotel. (I would NOT wear heels though, the cobblestones will destroy your poor feet.)
Overall, the hotel is safe, clean, romantic, great canal view, centrally located, good genuine service, decently priced, and just overall pretty awesome. I would definitely stay there again!
