Main hotel friendly, compact. If you are put in the newly aquired house at the back then be prepared for dirty bathroom, entrance, previous owners left over belongings (including dog bed kitchen bits post) and to be left to it with no room service for five days unless you ask for it to be cleaned.
This hotel is well situated, close to the the city's vibrant clubs and bars, but it's located in a quiet street on a canal, so it's a great place to start and end the day in tranquility. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is delicious and served till midday. The rooms are on the smaller side but clean. A pleasant place that's just what you need for a few days' stay.
The hotel is very well situated, close to the city center, but in a calm street next to the canal.
The main entrance is very nice, immediately gives a warm welcome. In front of the hotel you can just sit and relax, surrounded by petunias.
The room what we had was very small, and a bit dark (the ones without canal view, 1st floor) the shower needs to be renovated, and in one of our rooms the bed was too soft and creaky.
The staff is very helpful, breakfast is also very well done and abundant, however unusually you have to pay everything in advance at the time of arrival, even before checking the rooms and services!
Don't hesitate to choose the room with canal view! It is incomparable with the others even if the price is a bit higher!
We will definitely return, like the grey heron does each afternoon :)
This is hotel is rather shabby but makes up for this by the warm welcome from the staff. We were upgraded with out asking to a canal view room and told breakfast on the first morning was complimentery! this was a very pleasent surprise and they served it until lunch time which ment we really had it for lunch as we are late sleepers.The rooms are small but this traditional in a typical tall amsterdam building. the location was also excellent just a short stroll to rembrant square. it is also a very quiet area.
