My boyfried and I wanted to go away for new year and Amsterdam was the cheapest flight we could find. We booked this Hotel through Booking.com and as we left it late it was a bit more than we were looking to pay but we had a great stay there. All of the staff were really friendly from the reception staff, chamber maid and room service man. Our rooms were cleaned daily, even when we left to go out in the afternoon. The SkyBar at the top of the Hotel is definitely worth a visit for a cocktail and nibbles and has great views of the city. Our only criticsm was that there was no price list for the minibar (but I'm sure we would have got one if we asked recepton) and also there's no warning in the Hotel of having to pay a city tax on check out, although reviews on here and on Booking.com informed us of it so we knew to expect it. The swimming pool was great to use but be warned, to the English people reading this, in Holland you are required to be naked in the sauna and steam room and it is frowned upon if you wear your swimmers! Some reviews criticise the Hotel for its location but we found it really easy to find and travel to/from the city centre on the trams. While there is nothing directly outside the Hotel itself, a 10 minute walk away along Overtoom is 'Toasty' coffee shop which sells delicious sandwiches. From there you can walk through the beautiful Vondelpark to reach Museumplein (museum square) where the Van Gogh and Rijks museums are. Tram 1 takes you from outside the Hotel to the city centre where the other museums and tourists sites are (the squares are full of restaurants, entertainment and coffee shops). Tram 17 from outside the Hotel takes you to the west of the city to Anne Franks House and the Westermarkt. It took us about 20-30 minutes to walk into Amsterdam from the Hotel.
