We arrived by Taxi to the address on our booking sheet....which is a quirky little antique shop. We were met by Daniel, who took us by foot to our room. A little inconvienant, as it was raining and we had 3 large suitcases. The room was only about 2-3 streets away so not such a big deal!
The room was well located and was clean. I think it's a bit of pot luck which room you get- as I assume they have several all in different locations.
Ours was a front room looking over the canal and walking distance to some great cafe's, pubs and the red light district. Nicely decorated, with a tv, kettle, hair dryer and lots of extra blankets!
The wi-fi didnt work, however almost all pubs and cafes offer free wifi - so not such an issue for us.
Couple of tips......
Put the heating on...and leave it on. Takes awhile to heat up the room....and you are so grateful when returning from walking around in the cold!
Check out is at 11am - and keys need to be returned to the antique shop. A little difficult to arrange a taxi.....but we went for breakfast and asked the English speaking waitress to order us one and then dropped the keys on the way to the airport.
Not luxury by any means.....but well priced and clean.
We would stay there again! After all - if like us, you spend very little time in your room anyway!
Also....recommend taking a canal boat ride. Only 12 euro and great way to see everything if the weather isn't great!
