We stayed with Elisabeth at Synopsis May '04 for 2 nights, which was a week too short!! I was amazed by our room. We opted for the canal room (there are only 3 in the hotel) and it was INCREDIBLE! Elisabeth the proprietor has done a wonderful job in decorating her hotel, which is more like a B&B. Our room had a typical European bed which consists of two doubles pushed together with sumptuous linens. Superb. And you can still cuddle if you're careful. The bathroom was my favorite. A massive comma shaped tub which comfortably fit my 6'2" 240lb self more than generously. It took nearly 30 minutes just to fill it. A shower was also in the tub. Soft towels and even liquid soap and shampoo. We had the feeling we were staying in a very wealthy friend's home. This is nowhere near your typical tiny European hotel room. This was a suite. Good cable tv with several channels of the delightful BBC. Naturally most channels are in dutch, which is a fun sidebar. Do not stay at synopsis if you are rowdy. We barely heard a peep during our two nights and didn't want to be the noisy ones. I even took to tiptoeing round the rrom out of deference to the quiet. A great respite after taking in the delights of liberal Amsterdam. The street is on a canal and very close to the magere brug, or "skinny bridge". Within walking distance to a good Dutch pub and a "coffee shop" for those interested in such pursuits. Synopsis is also within a couple of blocks of a subway stop which will take you quickly to the Centraal Station. Worth every penny. Be sure to ask Elisabeth for directions to the nearest Indonesian restaurant and treat yourself to "Ricshstaffel" (rice table). An unbelievable culinary delight. Try patats oorlog also, french fries buried in mayonnaise, curry peanut sauce, onions and ketchup. YUM. We look forward to staying at sysnopsis again.
