We stayed for four nights, using Amsterdam as our home-base for sight-seeing. The hotel is in a very old home, located along a historic canal. It was a great location! It was central to many sights and restaurants. The trams to Amsterdam Central Station drop-off and pick-up very close to the hotel (only about 2 blocks away.) Each morning we enjoyed a delicious Dutch breakfast from our host Frits. He was very helpful in helping us plan our sightseeing, and gave us great recommendations for cafes and pubs. The room overlooked a back courtyard, which was nice. The free Wi-Fi was very fast and reliable. The bathroom was small, but clean. There were mosquitos in our room, and we did get bit, even though we used the mosquito net.
