We had a 2-star room overlooking the canal -- all white, very minimalistic, shower refreshingly unseparated from the rest of the space. The bed is heavenly, the...

We stayed in April 2014 and loved every moment - definitely my favourite hotel in Amsterdam. Rooms are beautifully designed and functional, the food at the restaurant was sophisticated and the local area is peaceful and picturesque, with several tram stops very nearby. The staff are amazing too - ask Anne and David in the restaurant for local tips, they...

Though on the 3rd floor I never found the lift but it didn't matter. The stairways to nowhere gave me a chance to discover this amazing and beautifully preserved building.
