Amsterdam lodging with Delft tiles

Looking for an old hotel in Central Amsterdam that still has the old blue & white ceramic features, tiles or otherwise, in public areas like reception, breakfast room, washrooms, etc.

Bonus points for old wood or other original architectural features!

Hotel Brouwer would have been perfect, but it's currently undergoing construction of some kind and I understand it was sold recently, so once it's reopened, who knows, it may be completely modernized by the new management. I tried several times to phone the hotel, with no success. So -- looking for some other suggestions!

Our specifics -- twin room for the night of 16 June, budget in the mid hundreds (euros/dollars). An elevator would be great!

I'm sad about Hotel Brouwer. We loved it and the location and it was budget friendly. I'm always frustrated when I hear "dated" in reviews for inns that I like. To me, that means, if its remodeled the price will go up! Why are rooms so much more expensive in Amsterdam than other major European cities? I've not been to London, so maybe prices are as high or higher there.

This historic hotel in central Amsterdam is available but at the top of your price range. It’s the majestic, old Heineken brewery building. Even if you don’t stay in the hotel, please drop in the bar adjacent to the hotel to have a drink and see the Delft tiles ringing the room which features old wooden booths and a beautiful bar, Blauwe Parade. When we were there in April we were disappointed to see that they had modernized the lobby area but from the pictures it seems that they have featured a bit of history in each room.
