This is a boutique hotel in the museum area of Amsterdam and very convenient for travelling around the city. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the first floor, small but well equipped with a large window overlooking the small courtyard garden. As other reviewers have said, the bathroom arrangements are a little unusual with the washbasin in the room whilst the toilet is in the shower room. The shower door opens outwards making it rather cramped and difficult to use. No place to hang hand towels near washbasin is awkward. The bed was large and comfortable although we did not like the lumpy artificial pillows and duvet.
Cleanliness is excellent. Our room did not have room for any armchairs. The windows can be opened and heating is through air conditioners. There was no outside noise but residents above us could be clearly heard.
There is an espresso machine in the room, not always filled by housekeeping staff and fresh milk can be requested. We did not inspect the basement rooms but clearly some could not have had any natural light. At ground floor there was an honesty bar, a small lounge and an area for buffet breakfast and a small menu for other food during the day/evening. We did not feel breakfast was good value at 18 euros with poor Luke warm cooked food although there were yogurts, some fruit, bread, cheese, cold meats, pastries etc. Cafe at the Stadlijk Museum across the road we felt was much better value for breakfast, whereas cafe at the Rijk museum is very expensive. We liked the Bistro Kesyer and a lovely place called The Entrecôte and les Dames in a near by street for dinner. They only do steak or Dover sole but come by when you have finished to ask if you want another one! We also lovely the 3 small museums which were old canal side houses around the Herrengracht and the Prinsengracht. We also found the Amsterdam card excellent value for museums and travel. If you have time go to Haarlem. Lovely old town with excellent Fran's Hals museum and wonderful cafés.
