We arrived for a few days pre cruise and were happy that our exxisson hotel shuttle dropped us off right at the hotel. It is kind of in a side street, which at first take made it hard to spot when we went for a walk, but once we got our bearings realized the location was perfect. The free wifi in the lobby was useful once someone showed us the trick to connect. Rooms were lovely, bed comfortable, temperature a little hard to control. They give out free maps so no need to buy one, as we did. Walking distance to Ann Frank house, make sure to buy tix in advance, line was hours long without them, and central station. The pedestrian walk behind the hotel has a supermarket with a bank ATM, places to eat and stores to shop. It goes from the first canal up to dam square. Great way to walk without worry about getting hit by a bike :). It was raining one night so we ate in the hotel. Food was excellent. A little confusion since the restaurant has a closed sign and they serve in the outdoor cafe in the summer months so others thought they couldn't be served. "Navigator" who gives help was kind of gruff when we asked directions. Not as friendly as all the rest of the staff. We had a problem with our door lock, key code kept wiping out, required several trips back to the front desk...a long walk.
