Friendly hotel nearby the Canal Ring
Conveniently located on the edge of the canal ring and only a short walk away from Leidseplein and the Museum Quarter, this small townhouse hotel makes a great base for exploring Amsterdam. The room was basic but clean and the bed perfectly comfortable, we also had the luck to get one of the rooms with a balcony. Breakfast is served at basement level and is the usual continental type with ham, cheese, a boiled egg (only hard-boiled on offer for some reason!) with a range of breads and rolls. What elevates this hotel is really the location and the very helpful and friendly reception staff. Rather expensive for what it is in comparison to other European cities I’ve stayed in but then all levels of accommodation in Amsterdam tend to be expensive. Worth noting also that because the hotel is a converted townhouse it has the typical narrow and steep staircase found in these buildings.
Unique Quality: Great location, helpful and laid-back staff.
