We checked in on a Thursday afternoon...quickly and professionally. Got the crazy small lift to the top floor and started to relax. Room was small but comfortable. Bathroom also small, but so very beautiful. Looked like recently having a refit, the taps/shower were a work of art, but the sink was a bit small for shaving in. I guess that's design over practicality.
The staff always smiled/spoke and the Manager/Assistant Manager stopped for a chat on a couple of occasions, making it a very homely stay. Hotel was very clean and professional. Breakfasts were good (both in choice and quantity).
There was even a garden area at the back where you could pop out for a smoke without standing out front on the street.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and we'd definately consider a return visit. Leidseplein Square was a 5 min walk away, where you could get a tram to most locations. Walking to Dam Square took about 25 mins. Nightlife good. Plenty of restaurants/bars.
