As others have noted, this is not your typical hotel. High concept for sure, quirky design, but it works. This is a perfect spot if you're on a city break for the weekend to Amsterdam as my wife and I were.
Easy to get to the hotel from the airport, its a quick ride from Schipol to Amsterdam Zuid. Be warned the ticket machines don't take notes or non-dutch credit cards, so make sure you have coins, or use the ticket windows.
Check-in was easy with the self service kiosks, and the rooms are quite comfortable despite the design. The bed and pillows were great, and there's a really great media selection, free wi-fi, tv, radio, and a ton of free on demand movies, wish we had more time to watch them! There's enough room for two suitcases, but not a lot more, and the bathroom set up is a bit weird with the tubes for the shower and toilet, but ultimately its fine.
Food downstairs is good for what you need, selection of breakfast items, snacks and drinks, there's also a comfy spacious lobby with tvs and computers for killing time if you need to. Access to the city is via the number 5 tram, its around the corner from the hotel and is a quick ride into the main parts of the city. Area around the hotel is pretty residential, no clubs, bars etc. but its safe and quiet, if you're looking for some place thats in the middle of it all, this isn't it, but on the bright side, you won't have stag parties running up and down the halls either. We'll probably return here next time we're in amsterdam, the value is good and it worked out well for us.
