The hotel couldn't have been in a better location for us as it was just a short walk to both the city center and the museum district. Staff were friendly and the room had everything we needed. My only issue was there wasn't much of a view from our window.

Lovely hotel

Pros: Everything
My friend and I booked a twin room, which was nice and clean, we stayed in room 335. The TV had BBC1 & BBC2. The restaurant is lovely, and the bar/cafe opened at 5pm. It was easy to get to - we caught Tram 1 from outside the front of Centraal train station. We would definitely go to this hotel again. Just a tip if you don't normally travel to Amsterdam and you buy a pass at the kiosk, you have to get it activated at the Yellow machine in front of the Kiosk and before you take the escalator down to the trains, you must get your ticket validated. This is done by putting it on machine at top of escalator (fiddly to find). All in all, a very pleasant trip to a very pleasant hotel.

Café closed. Again

Breakfast was second rate. Maybe because it was served in some corporate torture room instead of the café, which was closed for refurb (as it was when I last stayed)

Birthday Treat

This hotel is wonderful. All the staff were very helpful. The room was quite big and the bathroom was roomy. The shower was lovely and hot. The bed was massive. There was a nice surprise waiting for us when we got there. There was a small bottle of Wine for my birthday. There was 2 bottles of water free, one still and one sparkling. The room was cleaned everyday when we went for breakfast. Although the breakfast was 15 euros each it was worth it. I would certainly recommend this hotel and I will be visiting again. Thank you to all the staff at the hotel for making our visit memorable.
