What I liked:
* The location is lovely, a really pretty street an easy walk into the city centre. It is quieter than city centre hotels and but there are plenty of neighbourhood bars and shops around, plus buses at the end of the road.
* The staff are nice and do try to be helpful
* Breakfast was good and there was plenty of it
* Free wifi
* Coffee and cake in the lounge
What I didn't like:
* Bizarrely difficult to book. It seems to be only possible to do this online and staff don't seem to know about availability
* Extremely steep staircase down to the basement, without adequate handrail support
* Tiny and badly decorated room, poorly furnished with an uncomfortable bed and lack of hanging space.
* Very dusty in the room. Everything accumulated a layer of dust over night, which I really didn't appreciate one little bit.
* Small uncomfortable bathroom with very little space to put anything
* Expensive for what you get - but I get the impression hotel prices in The Netherlands are generally on the high side (colleagues in a more expensive hotel in town also felt it was poor value). It felt like a budget hotel, and I certaily would have given a better rating if it had been half the price - but there was nothing budget about the bill!
