This hotel is 20 minutes by bus from Amsterdam central and the busses run until after midnight, so for me it was a great base to work from. The staff were really helpful and professional, the place was clean and comfortable and the room was large enough to feel spacious. The Shower was as hot as you can handle and the little bottles of toiletries were filled up every day. The room is also well soundproofed so you don't hear people passing your door all the time.
I was very pleased with the comfort and service but I was very disappointed that there was no kettle in the room, nor anything for making tea and coffee, or even cups. (other than the glasses in the bathroom.)
I feel that the manager should have a serious look at putting tea and coffee facilities in all rooms as I have never been in a hotel that does not provide this. Even the cheapest hole in the wall gives this. I went and bought a kettle for 10 euros from Hema, one of the chain stores in Amsterdam.
I am more than satisfied with my stay there though and would add that there is a very good cheese shop next door where you can see cheese being made and clogs being made. People should be made aware that your bus ticket is an all day ticket and you can travel on it as often as you like on the day. I went to Edam, Volendam, Hoorn, Mockendam, Purmerend and Amsterdam and at he moment the ticket is only 10 Euros for the day. Very good value, great comfort and a perfect place to relax in the countryside, yet close to the city.
