Apologies for what will probably be a lengthy review but I feel it needs to be. My daughter and I returned from Amsterdam on Sunday after a 4 night stay at the Iris Hotel.
I was concerned before we arrived after reading some of the reviews on here. My daughter and I have stayed in some of the best hotels around in various countries around the world. So what did we find.....
Rooms - small yes but spotless - bathroom completley functional and also spotless why do
people complain about the size of a room/bathroom? You do not come to Amsterdam to sit in your room all day! You need a room to sleep and take a shower.
Stairs - Yes steep narrow stairs but not Mount Everest! Surely if you have mobility problems you check a hotel and its access before booking??
Staff - Amazing, everyone one of them couldnt do enough for you, they are so helpful, polite and chatty really made us feel special.
Garden - Beautiful garden to sit in downstairs
Value for money/location - Amsterdam is one of the more expensive European cities so for value for money and location it was great.
Breakfast - Again fantastic, fresh and lots of choice.
The Iris is all about what your expectation is, if you are looking for a clean hotel that will meet your needs with lovely staff, comfy beds and clean rooms and bathrooms in a great location then you cant go wrong. If you want 5 star go and book yourself in the Krasnapolsky but I bet you want have half as good a time or get the amazing service from the lovely staff! We will definitley be going back
