Our visit was one wherein both sides of the coin were shown ! our initial room (211) was very poor both in decor, furnishings and cleanliness. Registering our disappointment we were immediately given room 306 which was as different as could be... More

An advanced booking into a single room for 4 days for a Trade Show. Note; as is customary in Amsterdam, Hotel rates increase very substantially when large Events are held at the RAI Exhibition Centre (20 mins walk away)....but the service in hotels does NOT rise to match! First impressions were favourable, but it rapidly went down hill when I... More

The room was very clean and they had all the facilities to make your own coffee & tea. The morning breakfast was... More
