UPDATE: 1/2003 - We have returned for the third January in a row and I must say that while I am still thrilled with the location and the setup, the changeover to the Euro and their increase in fees has made it too expensive to warrant a return there. The room we described above - Room 17 was approx. $127 two years ago. It wasn''t cheap, but it was worth the extra money. That same room was offered to us this year for a whopping $190! We decided to take a "mid-range" room for a mere $170 and got a nice enough room but quite small and overlooked a cement wall and rooftops. The bathroom I suppose caused it to qualify as a midrange as it was a nice size and had a full tub. I''ve not had as warm a welcome as I''d had the first year either as I got one calling me to say that another staff member "screwed up" when offering us to move to a nicer room after the hotel opened up after New Year''s. Not rude particularly, but far from friendly. And this was our reception after having stayed there for a week at a time for the last two years. Disappointing. I haven''t stayed elsewhere there, but when we return, we will be looking for other options.

My one complaint was that the walls are paper thin and we could hear into the ajoining room and when people talked outdoors late at night we could also hear this.
The breakfast room was well decorated , the Christmas tree was still up and it was very festive. We had a continental plus breakfast as part of our rate which included bread, boiled eggs, cheese and meat. The waitresses were in local costume and were very friendly. The desk staff also had recommendations for dining in the neighborhood.
The location is one of the main draws of this hotel. It is within 2 blocks of the Anne Frank House and the West Kirk. It is about 5 or 6 blocks from Dam Square and the trolley stop is just up the street.
Somehow though we were always turned around when we stayed here. The map in my travel book seems to be reversed and we never did figure out exactly where we were until our last day there. This is unusual since we are not directionaly challenged.
