Just come back from a pleasant 3 night stay, and we could not fault this hotel. We new it was not central but planned accordingly. as per T/A advice we purchased our 72 hour bus and tram tickets at the airport for .16.50 euros and got the number 69 bus down to the hotel. about every 15 mins during the day and 30 mins after 6. Doing it this way you effectively get your transfers for nothing as you can use the pass straight away, and you will normally be coming back to the airport before the 72 hours are up. As it was dark we told the driver where we were going and he said he would tell us when we got there. I had noted on google earth the bus stop was called lodewijk van deysselstraat, and when we got there he had not said anything, but when I queried it he said he was dropping us off at the door, which he duly did, even though it is between stops. What service! The hotel is very good with excellent staff. our bathroom was a bit cramped but lovely fittings and big shower with plenty hot water. the bedroom was fine with comfortable beds. tea and coffee, and a free safe. We had breakfast included, and it was very good. No fried eggs but lovely scrambled, boiled , bacon, sausage, and a good selection of cereals and fruit with delicious bread. The bar area is quite small and not used an awful lot. The no 14 tram passes the hotel and goes by Anne Frank House on its way to Dam Square and Rembrant Square, which we found to be one of the main places for eating and drinking. We made very good use of the tram system to get around and up and down to the hotel, especially as we cant walk as much as we used to and had a very pleasant visit indeed
