This hotel is a great find. Very easy to get to from the Airport, get the 69 bus to the front door pretty much. Took around 30mins and is only 2.80€. The hotel itself is what you can expect from a big chain, was very clean and friendly. We turned up a few hours early for check in as our flight was an early one, but this was no worry as they had a room ready for us which was great after getting up at silly o'clock.
The Breakfast was great, both continental and english breakfast was on offer. Do try and get down before 10 and it can get a bit busy then you have to wait for the refills etc. The staff were also very friendly and helpful throughout the trip.
The hotel is about15/20mins by tram to the city centre which is nice and easy. You can get either Tram 7 or 14 from outside the hotel depending on where you fancy going in Amsterdam. I recommend getting a 3/4day pass for less than 20€ as it will save you a lot of money and you can use it on all buses and trams.
Overall a very very good trip and i would recommend this hotel greatly and Amsterdam also.
