This small but pleasant hotel delivers a lot at a fair price. The innkeeper/owner, Yasmine, responded promptly to our questions before we booked and was equally welcoming and hospitable upon arrival. Unlike many small European hotels this one has an elevator so you don't have to carry your luggage up four flights of stairs. It also has clean and modern bathrooms with plenty of hot water for baths and showers. The rooms are not lavish but comfortable for the amount of time you will likely spend in them. The continental breakfast included in the price is more than adequate. Yasmine provided many good suggestions for where to eat -- we were not disappointed by any of them. She was also generous about allowing us to use her computer when ours went kaput.
The hotel is located within walking distance to most places you will want to see. There is no street parking, so if you are bringing a car I recommend you park at the secured car park within a short walk to the hotel. Personally, I like giving business to women-owned establishments but would not recommend it if it wasn't a good value. I'd say you won't go wrong at Hotel Botaniek.
