This is a small hotel in a great location across from Centraal Station.
By American standards, the rooms are rather small, but that seems to be true of many non-chain European hotels.I had initially hoped for a room on Prins Hendrikkade, but after seeing the traffic and noise on that road, I was happy to have been assigned a much quieter room overlooking the common/breakfast room instead.
The breakfast was good. A selection of breads, cold meats, cheeses, veggies, cereals and yogurt. I LOVED the lady who oversees the breakfast buffet. She was so helpful.
My one suggestion is that you offer a top sheet with your bedding. The duvet provided is way too warm and I wound up shaking it to one side of it's case so that I could get a semblance of a sheet.
Thank you for a great stay.
