“Long weekend in Amsterdam (Tony B)”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

The welcome at this family run hotel was warm and friendly and certainly got our short stay off to a good start. Lovely filling breakfasts and our room was perfectly adequate for our needs (the narrow winding stairs to the third floor required some degree of fitness though). Ideally situated for seeing picturesque Amsterdam as most of the "sights" are within easy walking distance.
I would certainly stay at this hotel on subsequent visits to Amsterdam.

Our hosts welcomed us like family. Sent us off every morning with a wonderful breakfast. Room was very nice (although at the top of three winding flights of stairs.) Location was great. Highly recommended....we'll stay there again upon our return to Amsterdam!

On our first night we discovered that the room had no light bulbs. The next morning we requested light bulbs from the owner. She told us 'americans must have taken them'. What a ridiculous statement - tourists come to Amsterdam to take breakable light bulbs so that they can carry them around on the rest of their trips. And even if americans did take them, why didn't housekeeping notice the missing bulbs when they cleaned? Later that night, still no bulbs. The following morning we noticed a plastic bag hanging on coat hook near the breakfast room with light bulbs in it - they expected us to replace them and didn't even bother to tell us. When we asked for cozy nearby restaurant recommendation, she directed us to a directed to a nearby street that was nothing but restaurants. We got the general feeling that hotel guests were an annoyance to the owners and they did the minimum to get by.

This is a wonderful hotel, right in one of the most beautiful streets in Amsterdam. The hotel is in walking distance to most of the major sights and a short streetcar ride from the main station. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and charming. I can recommend this hotel to everyone, who is vacationing in Amsterdam and wants to escape the impersonality of most hotels.

My wife and I spent an enjoyable 5 nights here. Location is excellent, great restaurants, shopping and museums all within easy walking distance. Great breakfasts and very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is full of character. We stayed in the John Wayne room on the top (4th floor) which was really spacious with great views - you can see the Rijkmuseum from it. We would certainly stay here again.

Stayed here end of June with 2 Grand-Teens 13-14, and we all LOVED it. The location is perfect. Walk to everything. Sits right on the canal, circa 1670's, is spotless and so charming. It is just what you think of. Teens loved the stairs. Our (2) 3rd floor rooms overlooked the beautiful gardens with high windows that we opened at night. It is a residential neighborhood, yet steps from restaurants, pastry and cheese shops. You get the sense of living in Amsterdam.

The breakfast is served all at one big table allowing us to enjoy the company of the other guests and share our experiences. The breakfasts are amazing!!! Cooked to order omelettes, cheeses, homemade divine pastries and so so much more.

Hope you get to stay here. It was a highlight of our trip to Europe for our teens.
