Answers to the most asked questions
A lot of different people were asking us the same questions regarding either the hotel or this website. Therefore, we decided it was a good idea to start the Frequently Asked Questions departement.
If you have questions you would like to add, please ask...
Yes, like practically everyone else in Holland because we get taught that language from the age of seven.
Yes, and to be more precise: it's in the center.
Not really. You can take a train from Schiphol airport to central station ( 2,90 / 20 minutes). From there you can take tram #4, and that will bring you to the Prinsengracht in about 10 minutes.
Alternatively, you can take a taxi. This will cost you roundabout 35,= and takes anything between 20 and 45 minutes.
No, experience has taught us that some people enjoy playing MTV really loud in the middle of the night, and other people don't. We agree with the other people.
Usually it's a mixture of white bread and brown bread (we don't discriminate) toasted or not, ginger bread, rusk, butter, jams/ jellies, chocolate spread, apple syrup, peanut butter, honey, meat, cheese, orange juice, coffee, tea or coffee and tea.
The hotel itself hasn't smoked for years, but we do allow our guests to smoke in their rooms. With the window open.
It stood for Holland Florin and it was sometimes written as Dfl. (Dutch Florin) as well.
Here in Holland we just wrote FL. and we pronounced it as gulden (guilder). This is all history now, as the Euro ( ) drove off most of the colourful currencies of Europe. For your information: one Euro equals Hfl. 2,20371
No. You get a key for the front door, and we won't tell your mum at what time you got home last night.
A twin room has two single beds, usually put together, and a double has one double bed in it. If you reserve a double room with us it can happen that we allocate you a twin. However, when you reserve a twin we will never give you a double. Then there is the single room, with only one bed in it and the triple rooms, that have three beds and can even be turned into a quad room after adding a fourth bed.
Please have a look at our parking information page
Yes. Go over the bridge here, take the first street left (Kerkstraat) and after about 50 meters you will see "Bejo" on your right hand side. They service wash as well.
No. For example: it would take you about 25 minutes to walk to the central station, at the other side of the city center. Amsterdam is a compact city with not even one million inhabitants.
No, we provide towels and soap. All you have to bring is your toothbrush, toothpaste, clean socks and a change of underwear.
Available free of charge, at the reception. Just ask.
Yes. You can hire cars, boats, mopeds, bicycles, canal bikes, inline skates, books, videos, costumes, men, women, office space, secretaries, guides, bodyguards, detectives and probably a whole lot more.
