Hotel Keizershof was exactly the lodging in Amsterdam I was looking for. From a prior visit, I longed to see what one of those lovely old Amsterdam houses was like on the inside. And K. is exactly that. One enters the seven-story building through a fine old door at the ground floor, proceeds through a marble-floored hall (and on to a cozy, modern kitchen and dining area and adjacent living room if you go that far) to the STAIRWAY, a fantastic narrow, wooden spiral stairway that will take you up four flights, if you let it. Just beautiful, but not for the faint of heart. We got off on the 4th floor, found our room from among the four there, engaged key in lock, swung open the door, and were presented with a beautiful room, large, very clean, with a whole wall of windows looking out to the canal and street and all the fascinating architecture across the way. What a breath of fresh air, coming as we were from our “closet” of a room in Paris that day! We even had fresh-cut flowers and little chocolate Easter eggs. The bed was big and comfortable and clean, there was a TV, sitting chairs, table, chest-of-drawers and closet, and coffee in the room. Our room had a bathroom consisting of a sink and shower. We used the toilet facilities in the hall, which was not a problem—we were the only ones to use it. Let me reiterate, every thing is very clean. The room was quiet with no problematic street noise, and the hotel itself was very quiet. The breakfasts prepared by Mary and her son were excellent and abundant in a convivial setting with the other guests. Mary’s gracious nature is evident everywhere; she chats with guests if they want to, offers advice to local spots, and makes her place feel welcoming with may extra touches. K. is very well located and we walked everywhere we wanted to go. Although located in a quiet neighborhood, it is near restaurants, shops, groceries, museums, parks. The only time we took a short bus trip was to and from the train station. I would refer this hotel to anyone. It was a lovely experience and I wish I were there now.
