    The friendly owners take great care of their guests at this family-run hotel in a quiet street close to the Museumplein and the Concertgebouw. Chesterfield chairs by the fireplace, an honesty bar and a little decked garden create a home-from-home feel in this 19th century property, whose 17 bedrooms and two apartments feature high-quality M-line mattresses, pristine bathrooms and complimentary drinks in the fridge. Children are welcome and treated to drawing kits and their own toiletries. Several room formats have families in mind — a bunk room next to a deluxe double, for example, and a room sleeping four.


    We loved everything about our stay! The location is just perfect, the hotel is close to the centre and at the same time it’s situated in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood. Its interior design is tasteful and beautiful in common spaces as well as in our room. Our special thanks to the staff – we have we never felt more welcome in any hotel around the world! We would love to stay here again when we are back to Amsterdam.
    The property is located right next to the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum (Museum Quarter). The location was great, we went everywhere by foot, but there are also bikes available for rent which is very convenient. The room was nice and clean, and the bed was extremely comfy :) Breakfast was also great, there are enough options to satisfy anyone’s taste ☺️ We had a great stay here and would love to come again :)
    Everything was just amazing during our short stay in this newly renovated place! The owners of the hotel were very helpful and welcoming people. They gave us excellent recommendations on what to do in the city and provided a special guide book for restaurants, museums, activities for kids, and all of them were so useful. Breakfast was very delicious and satisfying, with some local delicacies. Decoration of the hotel is very stylish and sophisticated, we felt really comfortable. The room had all the luxuries of a boutique hotel, especially air-conditioning was great in such hot weather, so the quality of sleeping was fantastic. The family room was really spacious with good size comfortable beds. Thank you for your hospitality and wish you all the best in such difficult times!
    Erg gastvrij en geweldige service. Prachtige kamers en een heerlijk, vers en uitgebreid ontbijt. Verse zalm, fruit, avocado en handmade detox juice. Een aanrader!
    Charming small hotel, everything is fresh and new, beautiful interiors and warm welcome by lovely and hospitable host. Very family friendly! The room was very quiet and the bed super comfortable, and we really enjoyed the chill atmosphere in the downstairs lounge. Truly hidden gem in a really great location!
    One of my favourite hotel experiences! The building itself is an absolute beauty, the room has everything you need and the decor is elegant yet comfortable. The staff was so friendly, they offered us welcome drinks and I especially loved the little delicious bites that were there in the lounge for us, it felt so welcoming! I just wish we had more time just to hang out in the hotel and relax.
    Nous avons tout aimé et c'est rare pour le souligner ! Hôtel moderne et luxueux. Dame à l'accueil très professionnelle, agréable et chaleureuse, au petits soins. Hôtel bien placé. Chambre peut-être un tout petit peu petite pour les grands gabarits mais vraiment propre et nous la qualifions de luxueuse : aucun défaut et pourtant nous sommes tatillons. Boissons d'accueil dans la chambre très appréciées (eau, boissons, café, petit gâteau). Literie vraiment d'excellente qualité, avec le choix entre un oreiller plus ferme et un plus moelleux. Nous avons très bien dormi. Petit déjeuner très goûtu avec œufs brouillés minute et salade de fruits frais. Vraiment nous avons passé un agréable séjour. Ne changez rien, continuez comme ça 👍🏻
    The hotel was excellent. Supernice owner. Room very spacious, superclean. Best service I had in quite a long time! I recommend this hotel to all my friends and to you .. And the Van Gogh museum, MOCO and Rijksmuseum at approx a 5 minutes walk.
    We were pleased to be staying in this family-friendly hotel. The building is stunning, and the hotel offers an excellent location for sightseeing in Amsterdam. We loved everything about this hotel: beautiful decor, extremely comfortable room and bed and quiet aircon. The hotel staff that we came in contact with were ultra-friendly and professional. The room was clean and spacious enough for our stay. Breakfast was fantastic and there was good choice of food for everyone in our family. We would definitely return and recommend this hotel to our friends!
    Perfect hotel in de mooiste buurt van Amsterdam! Kamer was ruim, zeer comfortabel, brandschoon, zalige bedden, meer dan gastvrij personeel, lekkere koffie, prima minibar en al het goede van Amsterdam op steenworp afstand. Het voelde als thuis! Dank voor de goede zorgen, we hebben het zalig gehad!
