Leafy quiet area for convenient hotel.

Welcoming reception staff greeted my arrival in a older style building neatly decorated. My room was small but very clean and practical. Good quiet location within walking distance of the central area of the city made for an ideal, value-for-money overnight stay.

Dutch experience

The building is nice and interesting. Rooms are small but cozy. A great breakfast is offered at very convenient time, and the person in charge (who is not from Amsterdam) is kind and friendly. The rest of the staff is not very friendly but I just learned (first hand) that is the way with locals everywhere in Amsterdam. The hotel is close to many interesting places, tram line stop is half block away, there are at least 7 restaurants closeby, and it is located in a beautiful and quiet zone. The only problem I had was the impossibility to connect to internet in my room, not even with the help of a member of the staff.
