This hotel is within walking distance to just about anywhere you'd want to go in Amsterdam. The service is second to none with all staff going out of their way to make you feel welcome and to give advice on whatever is required. It was the sort of place that you never needed to ask for your room key - when you approached the desk, the key was produced as they remembered the room number without being told.
24 hour complimentary coffee, tea and snacks plus international newspapers, meant that people often sat in the reception areas giving it a cosy and friendly feel. The hotel has been well refurbished from the original canal house to retain the old beauty but with modern comforts. It was nothing like the soul-less square hotel room of the "could be anywhere" variety.
Some very minor down points - a little street noise, so ask for a quiet room if you are a light sleeper. There was also a tendency for maids to turn off bedroom heaters in the morning which made for a chilly return later in the day. Great furry slippers - but no robes.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again without hesitation due to the standard of service alone
