I almost don't want to wax lyrical about the Hotel Misc (since there are only 6 rooms and I'd like to be able to get one of them next time I go back!) but it really is an absolute treat and I can't fault Rachel and Pepijn's conscientious devotion to running the place.
Most of the other reviews cover why this is such a rare and terrific find:- individually themed rooms with canal or courtyard views, free and restocked daily minibar with soft drinks, chocolate and savoury snacks (don't worry though - you can still get a beer or a glass of wine from the lobby!), fantastic location, incredible and laid back breakfasts (Pepijn's homemade Seville orange marmalade is outstanding) etc etc. But for me it was really the comfortable feeling you get - it is like staying with friends, but ones who don't intrude and let you get on with whatever you want to do.
Rachel was incredibly helpful with anything we asked about from public transport and directions, to restaurant advice (we were there for 3 days and took every one of Rachel and Pepijn's recommendations - all very different experiences and all faultless). There is no price you can put on this personal touch and it made a hard work business trip feel very easy and relaxing.
You'll need to book in advance though - we tried to rebook for 3 days in April and it's full. Which is just what I was afraid of with all these glowing reviews!
