Hotel De Filosoof has free wi-fi, and each room has its own distinct theme – many with famous quotes from literature painted on the walls.  The hotel is shown beautifully in the film, and a quick look at the hotel website will show that the place has more to offer than the film shows.

The Anne Frank house is a ten minute cab ride, or 30 minute walk from the hotel.

Note that the Oranjee restaurant, which is featured heavily in the film, is not a real place.  However, Dom Perignon is very real and available most anywhere.
