As I needed to visit US Consulate at Museumplein, husband chose this hotel for its location. Hooftstraat is an upscale shopping street that you can find in any small city, with nice Kiehl's around the corner from the hotel. Unlike other reviewers, I found this hotel clean, quiet and newly renovated. Have certainly stayed in smaller rooms in France and UK so size was not an issue (although we did NOT have a queensize bed, just a ''cozy'' double). Had to request a coffeemaker, but staff, in particular bartender Helen, were all lovely and helpful. Biggest complaint -- no desk lamp on either side of bed, inexcusable in single or double room, had to turn ceiling lights off from wall switch, and height of tub way too high to safely exit --- took a few moments of maneuvering as I treasure my ankles and a sprain would take months to heal. If you are young and agile, you may not mind. Also, the website says parking -- what parking? One must use the paid lot at Museumplein. Many good restaurants around of all sorts, we did not indulge in the E12.50 breakfast. All in all, not bad for E60. And don't accept a basement room.
