A "Find" for Us in Amsterdam
Posted Aug 29, 2016
First impression: a charming facility; superb hotel staff; convenient location. We went on to discover a pleasant canal-view room, adequate "period-like" furnishings, comfortable bed, very new bathroom fixtures, surfaces, lighting. Narrow stairway and small treads but an elevator was convenient and closer to our room than the stairs. Five stories (I believe; we were on the "First" floor, one level above the lobby.) Excellent French restaurant for dinner; doubles as the venue for full breakfasts with buffet options. DR staff matched the hotel staff personnel, and they doubled in some hotel staff duties, too. The single drawback during our three-night stay was that late afternoon sun warmed our room beyond the capacity of the central AC to keep up; we had to pull our curtains - temporarily giving up our view of the canal! - to keep the room comfortable. But, just imagine that - that a drawback was the effect of sunny afternoons!
