Stayed here over Valentines weekend, February 2014. A really nice hotel, ideally located on the Herengracht Canal which is very central and great for getting to everything. Good suggestion of dinner from the concierge whose name escapes me. Rooms and service were very satisfactory. Would stay here again, no doubt.
