Since this will probably be our last visit to Amsterdam, I wanted to make sure we stayed on one of the canals. We asked for....we received....and we paid for a room with a canal view. It was on the top floor which was OK...but the canal view was not that wonderful. To see the canal, we had to stand right at the window...the canal could not be seen from anywhere else in the room. Since our room was on the top floor, the sloping ceiling (while picturesque) hampered the space in the room. One one side of the bed there was only 12 inches between the bed and the wall. The same was true at the end of the bed. The head of the bed was against the sloping wall/ceiling, and there was only about 18 inches from the 4th side of the bed and the storage cabinet. There wasn't really any room to put our 2 carry-on sized suitcases except on the minimal floor space. Moving around in this room was really difficult. One the flip side, the bathroom was decent sized and had a great shower. The lights were placed over the bathroom mirror badly....I couldn't really see well enough to shave. We felt the breakfast, although we did look at it, was overpriced and didn't eat here. The staff was helpful with all our questions...although we were not impressed by the company that provided the canal tour that we purchased through the hotel at a discounted price. All that being said, the location of this hotel is wonderful....about a 15--20 walk to/from the Centraal Station....and to most major attractions located in the city center. A tram line is just 2 blocks away so you can catch a tram to attractions that are farther away. BUT, the hotel is in a very quiet neighborhood...the best of both worlds....convenient..and quiet. If only the rooms were larger...
