If you are tired of bland modern hotels, this is the one to go to. The entrance looks like your old uncle's town house in Leiden, a good reading table with daily newspapers, some easy chairs. The room had a good view over the canal and was quiet. The bathroom was quite newly decorated, the room was original but not new.
Breakfast is good for the price offered. The service was friendly and attentive. More a home form home.
And the location in perfect, 10 min form the station and two minutes to the terrace.
