My family of 4 recently stayed here in the canal-view apartment for 2 nights. This room is not actually in the hotel but just to the side of the hotel entrance with it's own door on the street & then up 1 flight of super-steep stairs (as advertised).
The room itself was Quite large with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen area, living area & 2 bunk beds between the kitchen & living area. The room was clean but it had a bit of a smell to it (musty?) & the windows are not double-glazed so you could hear all street noises, including people talking outside.
The room had earplugs available ... because there is a Nightclub directly below the room! Not sure what time the music started but I can say it didn't stop until 3am and unfortunately, ear plugs do not block out the bass!
There is no dining facility here in the hotel but they do have a special at a nearby restaurant - we did not try it though. There is free WiFi available with their password which is nice.
Location is good - many restaurants nearby - and the flower market is very close. Everything is really within walking distance - or you can bike around. Canal cruises are also nearby.
This particular room would be good to stay in if you intend to also be out when the clubs are open. Otherwise, maybe look into a different room. We did enjoy the view and the staff was very pleasant and helpful.
