The location, near the Design Museum and across the canal from the the Graslei could hardly be topped. The rooms are smallish, but clean and comfortable. Blessedly, they are air conditioned (temps were hitting 30 Celsius every day). The staff were helpful to newcomers, tolerating our French long enough to be polite, then switching to flawless English. You can store luggage when arriving or leaving. Breakfast was very ample by our standards, including scrambled eggs and bacon, cheeses and cold cuts, various breads, yogurts, cereals and fresh fruit -- but it was not -- as another comment notes -- the full English stomach-busting, cholesterol-laden experience some Brits consider normal first thing in the morning. It can get busy, but service was prompt and cheerful. The Spar grocery store across the street is a real plus for picking up snacks and supplies.
