I stayed here in Amsterdam in 2009, what is super interesting about this hotel (and probably dictates its room design...) is that it used to be a prison! During WWII it was first used as a prison operated by Nazi occupiers, then ironically after WWII those same Nazi's were the prisoners. After that, it was used as an asylum and a bunch of other odd things. The 1 star rooms on the top floor definitely retain some of that cell-like charm. Overall though, it's a pretty neat place to stay, if you get a room with a different bathroom situation maybe.

I gave up a separate laundry room. Currently, our washer & dryer is in the garage, and is taking up a parking space in our 2 car garage. We're looking to see how we could put a Washer/Dryer in the kitchen, and possibly one underneath the counter and hidden behind cabinets. Something like the ones pictured here.

This advice is super helpful. I had a dream of putting a veggie garden on this tiered area in my backyard, but it is so far from the house and water source!! Time to reconsider....Maybe pots are the way to go for a small crop?
