“Great Hotel for city break”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Just got back from 4 nights in this very relaxing hotel. Large room overlooking the canal. owners were so helpful and friendly with great advice on places to visit. very good location for bars, shops, tramsystem. Hotel rooms very clean, towels and soap in room, clean bedding, wardrobe space and TV.
Shower and toilet in corridors but that just added to the enjoyment, owners are refurbishing and rooms will all be en suite when finished, some already are.
Breakfast very nice, fresh and plentyful with coffee tea and juice, meats cheese eggs bread and toast with selection of jams. Loved this hotel for its relaxed athmosphere.
I look forward to returning on my next citybreak, will definately book this hotel again.
Jacqui Robinson. Coventry

Room Tip: canal view rooms add to enjoyment

What a cute little hotel. Had such a great stay here. Spent 4 nights and got upgraded on the 2nd. Didn't mind shared facilities as we were prepared for them. Our own shower in room 6 was fantastic.
Such a great location as well.
Liked it so much that we've already booked again.
Thanks Pierre ( The Eggman ) & Mary. See you soon

Let's start with the good points: this small hotel is in a great location - just minutes from the lively Leidesplein and virtually next door to the American Hotel. It is on a canal side so you are bang in the middle of old Amsterdam. Another plus feature is the management - the owners (husband and wife) are very jolly and keen to help. They seem proud of their little place.
On the down side, the hotel is rather shabby and the small room we had was very bare, had a spongy mattress, a thin towel each, no soap in the washbasin, no ensuite (our bathroom was down the corridor), no wardrobe, and looked out onto a dismal courtyard. The thin walls seem to magnify every sound - water flushing, coughing and what seems like a fixture of cheap hotels: thoughtless people shouting down corridors or bellowing into mobile phones well after midnight.
I think if you are a very heavy sleeper and just want a bed to crash into, this hotel is perfectly fine. Breakfast is included and not too bad - (plenty of ham, cheese and white sliced bread, jam and fresh tomatoes plus scrambled eggs).

Room Tip: There may be better rooms at the back of the new extension.

Have stayed here in room 16 overlooking the canal, good room to people watch, currently in room 1 - newly renovated - great to see they are not changing the atmosphere of the old building but increasing the comfort. Great owners and staff. Will and have recommended to friends and family. Great value for money.

Adequate for what it is, which is cheap. Only hotel i've ever been in where no soap was supplied. The room next door was being renovated, which was another unpleasant surprise. And yes, I know Amsterdam stairs, but the two flights to my room were very steep even by those standards. Still, it served the purpose.
