I am so glad I booked this wonderful 28 room boutique-like hotel and it has an elevator. The building was built in 1906. It is family owned. Alex, co-owner said that his parents started the hotel in 1982. He joined the business in 2000.
This hotel is spotless. The service is wonderful. Believe me, they aim to please.
Breakfast is typical Dutch and is complimentary. There is also excellent and free WiFi with a communal computer if needed. My group played dominoes in room where there is a small bar and where breakfast is served. It was allowed. It was fun and we weren't bothering anyone.
Rooms are small but everything you need is there. I appreciate the armoire with hanging space and also shelves. If your room is at the front of the building and your window is open, it can be noisy however, mostly during the day when people are usually out touring. No A/C however, the room is comfortable and there is window and transom that opens enough for fresh air.
A couple blocks away are very nice restaurants. Also, many of the major museums are close by plus the canal is about 200 yards away.
Large chain hotels can be very nice but I think that staying in a hotel like the Nicolaas Witsen adds to the trip experience. I look forward to staying at this hotel within the next couple of years with another group.
