We wanted a quiet neighborhood but convenient location and we got it! Appreciated that we walked no more than 15 minutes to most places of interest - museums, restaurants, shopping, bars and cafes! The nearby canal is beautiful, with the cruise boats passing by, the houseboats lines up, and the streets all lit up for the holidays.
Ground floor location is a big plus; the trade off is some late night noise from the establishment next door (great beer menu, by the way!) on the weekend. Heated floors were a plus on some chilly nights as there are no mats in the bedroom or bath area. Dan was responsive to our needs; and while he lives upstairs he gave us complete privacy, which we appreciated. Sad to leave, but hope to return next time in the spring!
