Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.

Walking into this boutique hotel was like walking into an eclectic haven of interior design at its best. The owner prides herself on her attention to detail and rightly so. A wonderful scent lingered in the air of the public areas and in our bedroom. We later found out that

Is a full breakfast or a limited breakfast included?
It's not included unless you pay extra when you book your room. We never ate breakfast there but did have snacks in the evening which were really good. The bar/dining area is beautiful and very cozy.

I think it is too far to walk with luggage on cobblestone streets. If you take a cab insist that they use the meter, don't accept their offer of a fixed fee. Cab drivers love to rip off tourists at the cruise terminal and the train station. I would use Uber instead if possible.
