Out of the way depends on how you look at it. It's a few minutes walk from Central Station, and walking distance to Haarlemmerstraat and its numerous cafes and shops, and then an easy walk on into the canal belt and Jordaan.

It's also close to the ferries that go across the IJ river to EYE film institute (with nice restaurant and good views) and Pllek and Noorderlicht cafes.

It does take about 20 minutes to get to Museumplein. Depends on what you want to be close to.

By the way, Google Maps is running behind, there are now actually buildings where that pin is. :-) Including the new Palace of Justice.

Deborah B, I also recommend you have a stroll on beautiful Prinseneiland which is a stone's throw from your hotel and is somehow overlooked by 99% of tourists. Draw bridges, canals, wooden shutters on old houses, and a yellow submarine. :-)

Prinseneiland + 2

Ah this is the new hotel they just built in the complex where as Cecile mentioned, is by the new justice building. Looks very nice. Not out of the way at all really. I think it just opened this week. Rooms look pretty funky especially the one with the wall of Delft houses.

Let us know how you get on. By the way easier to come out of the rear of the station by the river. It's not a long way but if you have lots of luggage then you could take either bus 22 or 48 two stops.

I see that they have a special opening offer of €135 per night. Not too bad.

Staying at the Aitana it would actually be very easy to miss the heart, the best part of the Westelijke Eilanden (the city's western islands) even though your hotel is in the same district. You have to get behind (to the west of) all the new building along the Westerdok to find one of the city's oldest areas. Take this walk http://goo.gl/NDo6oq and end up at Wijncafé Worst for a good look at the area and for a great lunch.

And, yes, I am recommending that you go to a winebar called "worst". Just trust me. :-)
