Expert review of 't Hotel

Cute b & b in a 17th-century canal house in a prime spot.

Despite its name, 't Hotel is a b & b. Though not just a b & b: the reception doubles as the office for the Slovakian Tourist Board.

Location: 

First rate: in the lovely western canal ring, on one of the city's prettiest canals, with bookshops and appealing cafés and restaurants as near neighbours, such as Spanjer & Van Twist - one of my all-time favourite Amsterdam eetcafés. The Anne Frank Huis is just round the corner.

Bedrooms: 

The eight rooms are tasteful and understated, with cream-and-brown furnishings, leather armchairs, Art Deco lamps, and neat grey-and-white bathrooms (some with baths, some just showers). They also come with tea/coffee-making things and free WiFi. Those at the rear are without a canal view, and cheaper. If you can cope with several flights of steep stairs, consider asking for numbers 7 or 8, which are charming attic spaces. Number 8 is a split-level family room sleeping up to five.

Public areas: 

Just the multicoloured breakfast room in the basement, which may strike you as jolly or garish, depending on your mood.

Eating and drinking: 

Buffet breakfasts - cold meats, cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, breads - are plentiful.

Service: 

Good: Slovakian owner Ingrid comes across as hard working, friendly and kind.
