You'll be spoiled for choice of old-master views at the first Delft hotel to pay homage to the town's most famous son: the pleasant modern rooms (with beams and other nice touches) at the front overlook a canal, while those at the back have a sweeping city view that takes in three churches. What was once a cigar factory is awash in tasteful greens and yellows; the décor is unobtrusive, and the staff is pleasantly friendly. The garden behind the hotel is a mellow place
to have a drink. The restaurant is open only for groups (advance arrangements essential). Too bad, because the walls are adorned with painted copies of the entire works of Vermeer, with his Girl with a Pearl Earring inevitably taking center stage.
