  • It's a little further from the Center than I would like... That being said, the hotel is clean (minus the stains on the carpet), and the location has quite a bit near it if you look around. Not bad for a quick stay with just enough stuff to do. Check them out!!!
  • I love this hotel! It's a great location, along a canal, and close to several museums including the Van Gough. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
