Good value and great location

My daughter and I enjoyed this historic hotel located on a canal in a well situated area in Amsterdam. We were welcomed by the staff and enjoyed an easy check in. Our room was on the top floor with a canal view and although it was a little tired and worn, it was quite large compared to most of the European hotels that I have stayed in. We could walk to all of the major museums and the canal tour boats are located across the street. There is an outside, waterfront cafe at the resteraunt next door where we could enjoy a glass of wine and a bowl of soup while sitting in the sun. The only complaint that I would have is that to get some ventilation (it was unseasonly warm) we had to leave the windows open at night and it was very noisy when the bars closed at 4 AM.

A lovely place to stay in Amsterdam

During my week-long EU vacation, this was honestly one of the highlights of the trip. Sadly, before arriving in Amsterdam my trip was delayed by a blizzard, knocking 2 nights off of my stay. As a consolation for this, the friendly and helpful concierge offered my friend and I an upgrade to the "bridal suite"! The room was very clean with a great view of the canals. Although not the most modern hotel I've stayed in, I loved the decor and old-fashioned charm. The location was great; only a 10-15 min. walk to the train station and close to sightseeing areas. The cafe off of the lobby also had good coffee, an added bonus. I would highly recommend this hotel for single travelers, couples or friends!

Definitely in need of renovation

This hotel's location is the only think we cannot complain about. However, the amenities and the room comfort are below average. There was no Internet either (even though we were told it should have been there). The building is old, and has multiple very visible cracks right in the lobby... You cannot help but think the ceiling may come down on you any time. The furniture in the rooms is totally worn out, and the rooms are extremely small. If we had at least one suitcase - it would have been impossible to move around. The staff is trying to be accommodating. Yet, by all the stretch of imagination it's more like a 3-star hotel and not 4-star. This place needs to be renovated a.s.a.p. with total furniture replacement.
