The hotel houses 42 rooms in a stunningly renovated, historical building. Its interior is modern, warm and comfortable. The building has previously functioned as a stables for the horses of Amsterdam's mounted police. The decorative images of horses and the stable doors in the hotel's current interior playfully refer to this past.

This hotel for as nice and friendly as it was could really do with some double/king/queen sized beds for couples as I had a issue with falling down the gap of the twin beds pushed together.
