We chose this hotel from Trip Adviser recommendations for our first time in Amsterdam and were not disappointed.
It was well located, around a ten minute walk along the canals from our drop-off point at the central station. We liked the fact that the hotel frontage looks like one of very smart canalside townhouses, with very discreet hotel signage. Inside the decor is very stylish, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff who were able to admit us to our room early. When we returned from our walk later it was unfortunate that our ceiling had sprung a leak from the roof, but the staff immediately sprung into action, changing us into a larger upgraded canalside room. They also gave us a free breakfast, thus we give them top marks for service and problem-solving.
The upgraded room was very comfortable, although you had to watch your head on the beams. It included a great sitting area over looking the canal. Downstairs we loved the cosy bar area and the breakfast offering.
It felt like a personalised operation with a good group of people looking after us, individual thoughtful emails in advance of our stay and friendly bar and reception staff.
