This quaint hotel was a winner. The staff was great and gave you speech when you checked in describing all the amenities, from the open bar in lobby to the nightly wine and cheese party they offered. The included breakfast offered anything you could imagine and the egg dishes were cooked to order any way you liked them. The rooms...

Be careful when booking your rooms folks. When booking my reservation through their website, I made a mistake of booking for one adult instead of two on the package for the Van Gogh museum and Deluxe Canal View room. I was advised that it would be an additional 40 euros per night and we were staying four nights. Considering the...
