Our favourite rooms
Good Rooms make up in style for what they lack in size, with the same luxury trappings, twin sinks and contemporary photography as the higher room categories – 18 overlooks the garden. Exceptional Room 12 has an ingenious sink/entertainment island and our favourite photography, including two Kevin Best showstoppers. The aptly named Best Room is an enormous top-floor suite with a freestanding bath, shower for two, two seating areas and canal views. If invisible ablutions are a non-negotiable for you, Great Room 3 and Exceptional Room 15 both have entirely separate bathrooms (the rest have in-room baths and sexy glazed shower stalls).
Pack light, and hit the boutiques in the nearby Nine Streets to pad out your wardrobe with cutting-edge designer or upcycled vintage pieces. Save stilettos for the bedroom: the Dam is all about Converse, cobbles and canalside walks.
In-room spa and beauty treatments can be arranged, and personal trainers can be booked via reception, where you'll also find jogging maps, tram tickets and other helpful extras.
Welcome, although this is a getaway for grown-ups. Cots or extra beds are €75 a night; a highchair is available in the breakfast room. Babysitting can be provided with a local nanny.
