I was a bit nervous at first as the entryway is not overly welcoming; however, I was pleasantly surprised with the room. This is a good sized, clean walk up room (not huge) with a pleasant canal view. It's well located with easy access to city center. The steep, narrow stairway to second floor not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Thankfully, very friendly and welcoming host carried our suitcases up this staircase. Shower and sink are off the sleeping quarters; however, the private toilet area is in another room across the hall. This was not a problem, it just seemed rather strange at first. I would recommend this place to my family and friends.
