With one exception -- the stairs that go up and up, right out of a Martin Escher drawing -- we have nothing but praise for this small hotel one block from the Rijksmuseum, two blocks from the Van Gogh and Stedelijk Museums, and directly on the tram stop to Central train station and bus stop to the airport.
The place appears to be a converted home and has interesting art works of all kinds that give a personal feeling. Accumulated over time by a single taste, rather than purchased to decorate a hotel.
We had a large double room on a corner with windows taking up nearly two walls -- windows that open, overlooking trees and the street. We can see the back arch of the Rijksmuseum from here. The twin beds, pushed together to make a large double, were deliciously comfortable. We rated this large and comfortable room by reserving for a week.
We were particularly taken with the (free) breakfasts, served by cheerful staff in a bright family dining room with plenty of windows. Sliced ham and cheese, soft-boiled eggs, and REAL CREAM fresh from the cow for our coffee.
The owner works in the hotel on Fridays. She has firm ideas about how guests should behave, and I must admit we were afraid to ask for seconds on coffee. Other days of the week you are safe!
