I booked 3 rooms (2 twins & 1 single). The hotel was located within easy reach of Dam Square (7 mins) and RijksMuseum (20 mins). The rooms were a little on the smallish side but each had ensuite bathroom and toilet facilities. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms and toilets clean and mold free. The rooms were well heated and I found the windows opened easily to allow fresh air in. Maybe a couple more hangers in the wardrobes would have been useful.
The stairs were a little steep, but that's normal in Canal Houses.
I was impressed with the breakfasts that were well beyond what 2 star hotels tend to offer.
The staff were very helpful. One of 2 brothers (an oriental gentleman) was really helpful in providing alternative solutions for getting to Keukenhof.
The hotel allowed us to drop off our cases when we arrived (prior to check-in) and again allowed us to store our cases on our departure day for us to collect in the evening.
There were lots of nice lunch cafes nearby and some really good restaurants in the vicinity. Being situated on the Singel canal made finding our way back to the hotel very easy as well as nice views from the front facing rooms.
Overall, for a 2 star hotel I rate this highly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our small hotel is situated in a beautiful canal-house that is over 300 years old, nestled on the quiet, picturesque Singel, the oldest of the four major ring canals in Amsterdam's famed inner city. Our cosy hotel offers an oasis right in the centre of town. The hustle and bustle of the shopping streets around Dam Square, the charm of the myriad canals lined with 17th-century houses and world famous sights, such as the Anne Frank House, are all literally steps away. There are also convenient trams and other public transport options to whisk you off to all of the city's many attractions. Room information: the hotel offers 13 double and single rooms and one triple room. We serve a good continental breakfast-buffet in our light and pleasant breakfast room. Rooms are ready for check in at 14.00 o'clock. If you arrive earlier we can store your luggage until then. We look forward to have you as our guests! ... more less
