Concierge.com's insider take:
Money is no object, you're so over minimalism, and you want an intimate place to stay. Beyond the grand oak staircase in this 18th-century canal house are eight themed rooms (Tolkien, Stravinsky, and Picasso, for instance). More like pieds-à-terre than hotel rooms, each has a sitting area and cushy touches such as custom-woven Welsh blankets. Even the smallest is a generous 430 square feet. Staff members serve breakfast in bed, set out wine and cheese by the fireplace, and act as concierge for your busy Amsterdam evenings. Museumplein and the nightlife of Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein are within a few minutes' walk from the front door.
