The bedrooms were completely renovated in 2004 and are now all-inclusive, meaning that mini-bar drinks, cable TV and films are all complimentary. The bedrooms are in very good condition and are decorated in a faux art-deco style, with wooden furniture, plasma television and surround sound, burgundy curtains, a black armchair and foot stool and an art deco wardrobe. The bathrooms have also been completely renovated and are also in very good condition with black and white tiling and a power shower with extra large shower head in every room.
The hotel does not have a restaurant due to the numerous restaurants surrounding the hotel However, there is a breakfast room on the lower ground floor. This was also completely renovated in 2004 and now has a black and white tiled floor. There is some seating available on a yellow banquette and a breakfast buffet is served on an imitation Aga cooker. The wooden dressers and the Aga give a cosy and homey atmosphere, and some items are cooked on the spot e.g. pancakes, waffles etc. There is also a large table adorned with magazines and sightseeing leaflets.
This charming hotel is ideally situated along one of Amsterdam's historic and infamous canals, the Herengracht. The city's museums and entertainment centres are all within walking distance, as well as the famous Amsterdam flower market, Central Station and Rembrandtsplein.
