This traditional Amsterdam townhouse has been expertly converted into a boutique-y hotel. It has a fresh and minimalist design, without tipping into stark/uber-cool territory, and is friendly and welcoming. Ours was a comfortable, quiet (thick, sturdy walls), clean and well-equipped room with a pretty roomy bathroom too (lovely big bath and strong shower). The stairs are steep, but this is part of the charm of the local architectural style. Informative, knowledgeable and approachable young hosts made ours a very enjoyable 2 night stay. Wholesome and healthy breakfast, served at a relaxed hour, was just what we needed for a long day's site-seeing. DVDs in lobby can be borrowed (DVD player in room) and there is also an honesty bar available with a good selection of wines and drinks. Coffee/tea 'to go' also provided during daytime - nice touch!
