“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

My room was very spacious for one person and was quite comfortable. The service and complimentary breakfast with the stay was absolutely great! I got to experience what seemed to be a typical Netherlands-style breakfast, which I enjoyed very much and the location was in a very nice, quite area.

Family run hotel in a quiet area of the Jordaan, 15-20 min walk from Centraal Station and 5 mins from the nearest tram stop. Single room was basic but cleaned daily with a small safe for any valuables. Simple breakfast served between 8-10am by the friendly staff.

This small hotel is right on the Prisengracht (one of the main canals in Amsterdam). Our room had a view of the side street - unfortunate that we didn't get to see the canal but I heard the canal rooms in some hotels could be noisy.

The Jordaan district is a very nice place to stay. It's quiet, right near the Anne Frank House and easy to access with public transportation/trams. The closest stop is at Westermarkt by the Westerkerk church, which is only a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.

Breakfast is wonderful and consists of: coffee or tea, 1 hardboiled egg, homemade bread (white and wheat), some kind of crispy biscuit, jam, butter and chocolate sprinkles (dutch use sprinkles and butter on their bread). Also some kind of yummy spanish-type ham (serrano?) and cheese. The waitress in the morning was super nice and answered our questions about how we were supposed to use the sprinkles.

Our hotel room was on the second floor and my husband and I shared a room with two twin beds pushed together. It was a little cold and we stayed in the end of October. There were extra blankets provided. The beds were comfy enough and we slept well.

The hotel was clean, neat and tidy. It has a nice entrance on the street.

Be very very wary about bicyclists!! They will run you over if you are not careful.

What prevents this hotel from being a higher rating:
1) There is no separate bathtub in the bathroom -- the shower opens up onto the floor and makes a wet mess. There is a squeegee provided to help mop up the mess, but it's impossible to go back in the bathroom after showering with socks on. It's too wet. There should be a fan or something to dry the air out as it gets pretty steamy as well.

2) Maybe I'm being picky but it would be so nice to have a shelf in the shower to put stuff on

3) The front office guy when we checked in was accomodating but it didn't seem like his English was very good. We had some questions about the Anne Frank museum he was unable to answer for us and didn't seem to care to help us find those answers.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 43 which was upstairs. Our friend stayed in room 38 which was downstairs and a bi...

Great little hotel with canal right out the front door and you can hear the church bells. Located very near "The Anne Frank House' Has that European flavor. Steep narrow stairs, clean rooms and bathroom. Excellent continental breakfast. Staff very helpful. I would recommend this hotel anyone.

Viewed the hotel online, liked what I saw. I've stayed in different hotels in Amsterdam on several occasions. This one let me down the most. Single room was TINY! With my 3 bags on the floor beside the bed; there was no floor left! My view was of an old wooden shed, not a canal! Staff weren't willing to do anything with some small requests I had...
