Fair 4.0
Not worth it
The place is an old building no wider than one and a half Victorian cottage. There are 12 rooms altogether so you could imagine how cramped the rooms are. In fact, I don’t think it is able to call itself a hotel, the stairs are too steep and passages too narrow. The toilet door closes inches away from your face with no window and floor to ceiling black wall, it is a very confined place to say the least. Only a few rooms facing the street have good nature light with others facing neighbouring wall only inches away. To be fair the place has a good decor but I am not sure black walls are ideal for small place. The whole place is manned by one person sitting at a desk on the entry. Amazingly I asked him about the direction to the Anne Frank’s House and he said he never heard of it, unbelievable! The location of this place however, it’s very central. But then again as we were staying on the street side, we were waken up every morning at 7 by delivery trucks for the shops. Personally I am not quite sure it is worth it.
