After booking well in advance, I was assigned a basement room, but after expressing my disappointment, the desk clerk worked to provide a much more charming room overlooking the canal. I left enthusiastic about Townhouse Hotel.

Overall the Hotel was nice, but the bed was AWFUL and not really quiet during the night.

On the plus side, it is very well located and the staff is extremely helpful. On the minus side, it is quite expensive: they chrge all sorts of extras (credit card fee if you chose that as your means of payment, tourist fee) and breakfast is extra. As to the room, it was literally a converted attic, with bathroom & toilets shared by the whole floor. The room was the smallest I have ever seen and there was a dripping-water noise. The bed was extremely hard (the thinnest matress ever).

Was there 2 nights. We had 2 single rooms but one was only booked for one night so the other person had to change rooms for second night. Beautiful area next to nice bars and shops. Rooms were tiny but the hotel was clean and the rooms were cleaned each day. For the city it was very cheap so overall for a short stay no complaints at all except for the misbooking. I would recommend this for young people out there to party - if you want a room to retreat to during the day this is probably not for you.
