When I first found out that I was staying at this hotel as part of my Contiki tour, I wasn't impressed. The bright blue exterior looked horrible and I wasn't sure about the hotel at all.
However when we arrived and checked into our room I was quite surprised. The foyer was very big and spacious that included a hotel bar on the side.
The Room - The room was great. There was enough room to move around and be comfortable with two people. The bathrooms were very clean and looked new. We got a room on the ground floor. It was great for not having to use the lifts but we couldn't leave the curtains open as everyone on the street could see in.
WiFi - Everybody loves free WiFi and this hotel has got it! I was able to use face-time on my iPad so I was really happy with that.
The Location - I found the Amsterdam metro system difficult to understand. I wouldn't have been able to find the hotel on my own. We got someone to help us find the right tram line to jump onto and the tram stopped a short walk from the hotel. If you are still confused just grab a taxi.
Overall it was a beautiful hotel just outside of the center of Amsterdam. The bright blueness of the building actually isn't that bad, as it will help you locate the hotel.
