My wife and I took trams everywhere within the city, so it was nice to have a tram stop very close by. The bustling Dam Square area is only minutes away on foot. The hotel, however, is situated in a much quieter neighborhood than the crazier "all hours" neighborhoods that are nearby. We slept with the window open each night, and neighborhood noise was basically unnoticed after midnight. The nice view from our room included looking down at a canal/bridge and across the street at Westerkerk church. The small room was not fancy, but overall clean & functional. The decor was dark wood walls with funky/bizarre/cool? lighting fixures that provided little actual light. The bathroom was almost spotless (a couple of tiny mildew spots on the shower door, but nothing major). There is no air conditioning, so the window open/fan running combo is necessary on warm evenings, as the room would be stuffy otherwise. The included continental breakfast was a nice way to start each day. The breakfast room itself was actually quite nice with good views of the neighborhood.
Pros: Great hotel staff, charming views of the neighborhood, quiet sleeping, great mellow location (yet near enough to everything), good value
Cons: Not the kind of room to spend a ton of time in (which we didn't plan on doing anyway)More
