We absolutely loved this place. You need to book directly via email and then call in your credit card number instead of booking directly on line, but that's really not a big deal.
Our room was huge and decorated with lovely antiques - it wasn't fussy or modern, but instead cozy and relaxed. The room was also quiet, and the bed was very comfortable.The WiFi was lightning-fast, and the room prices are an amazing value in an expensive city.
The hotel is about 5 minutes from Rembrandtplein, with plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as trams, ATMs and a grocery store that's open until fairly late. In addition, there are some really nice restaurants nearby and on Utrechtstraat, a 5 or 10 minute walk away. It's a great base from which to explore Amsterdam.
Pierre and Gunther are charming, friendly and helpful hosts and really make you feel at home. The in-room breakfasts are very good and reasonably priced.
The rooms are accessed by a narrow, Dutch-style winding staircase, so that may be a drawback for some people. And if you're looking for a sleek, modern hotel where your every whim will be fulfilled by a full-time staff, this place may not be for you. Otherwise, it can't be beat.
