We were greeted by Melanie, who served us a homemade strawberry concoction with warm wet towels to refresh us. First class all the way! Then while we were waiting for our room, we were brought homemade brownies and cappuccinos. It was love. We had the front ground floor room. A little noisy, but beautifully appointed with a gorgeous dutch print...

The hotel is lovely with an art gallery. The staff is very attentive. It has a small bar that is well designed with a menu as well. The room was lovely. The breakfast is a choice of continental or an add on for a small charge. We opted for eggs and salmon, which were wonderful. The breakfast room overlooks a...

Was greeted with a cocktail upon arrival and found the reception very personable. The general manager later spoke to me for longer and was extremely attentive...

We had to stop in Amsterdam on our way to Venice so we decided to stay a couple of days. Arriving at 5:30 am after an all night flight is never good but they made us feel very welcome and allowed us to have breakfast and leave our luggage before venturing out. It was a cold rainy day so we...

The hotel itself has a classic vibe with beautiful artifacts from it's former use as a school. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. The breakfast was well presented and good quality with...
