Booked this hotel back in November 2012, so when we arrived and found that we had a room in the attic of a traditional Amsterdam house was a surprise. Three steep staircases, you needed climbing gear. This would have been a real bad surprise for someone old or very young.
The room was very small and in need of decorating but clean, bathroom was a shared with two other rooms but very clean.
Location good five minute walk to dam square, right next to the bulb market. Breakfast basic but good, scrambled egg, toast, bacon, cheese, ham, cereals and croissants. Roof above dinning area glazed affair which was in a very poor state, cracked glass and dirty.
Hotel needs a bit of TLC all round, shame because very good location.
