We stayed here five nights at the beginning of this year's European vacation and had a wonderful experience. First of all, the property is gorgeous as well as historic and because of its courtyard reminded us of the grand, lovely, famous hotel we enjoyed in Paris. The location is superb and we were easily able to walk to most of our dinner reservation around the city. We had a canal view which proved a bit loud at times (our family had managed to vacation during Amsterdam's Gay Pride celebration and there were many, many boats celebrating with exuberance) but we easily were able to sleep in our comfortable, large rooms. Our internet was free and extremely fast, a plus for a family that wants to stay connected back home. Breakfast was included for us and offered many choices including hot selections like eggs and waffles prepared to order. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The only criticism I could offer is that it was difficult at night to find a solution to charging an iPhone or iPad - if you turned out all of the lights, the outlets were off as well. (We finally found that we could charge our devices in the bathroom but that offered only one outlet.) I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend this hotel to friends.
