excellent hotel and great value

The Scheepvaarthuis-hotel (or shipping house in Dutch) was the nicest hotel I stayed in during my trip to Amsterdam. It offers all those nice touches like a free minibar (no hassle with bills next day), free wifi and great bath products (Bulgari, not the usual smelly stuff). What I also liked was that their bar and restaurant offer good food and an excellent wine-list for non-rip-off prices. It is a bit hidden away, but only 2 minutes from the Central Station and it offers great views over the canals and the central Y-lake.
