Just back from 2 day stay with my husband for valentines day... i'm from scotland and now living in netherlands so was nice to stay in amsterdam for a change...First impressions on hotel were first you get charged a fortune for parking having stayed all over the world i mean 25 euros a day to park in their carpark absolute nonsense its a con.
Second the rooms were nice similar decor to malmaison hotels in uk which are nice and modern.
The bed was very hard however and pillows were not very fluffy and comfy i found.
Thirdly the staff are not over friendly girl on reception with long dark curly hair is just plain RUDE she came into lift looked me up and down didnt even greet and then when my husband and i had to ask her a question at reception she was rude with a bad attitude. It's just a completely different experience with some of the dutch people they don't go out of their way for you.
Fourthly we were hoping to get a long lie as we were up till 4 in the morning but got woken up at 8.30 by the cleaner shouting down the corridor and banging the doors. When mentioned at reception about this as it really isn't a great start to your day the guy at reception did apologise and said he would speak to the cleaner but at as i say again they do not go out of their way.
Another criticism would be that there is some english channels but after like 10 they go into porn which is typical dutch tv but its just a pain for us british who actually want to watch tv after 10 lol i mean the dutch have this free sex culture but they seem very stern which baffles me...
oh another thing in the uk you get to use the sauna but you have to pay 10 euros to use it per day i just think its nice if you get to use all the hotels facilities and it should be included in the price of the hotel just a bit of a pain.
I would stay again as the room was nice and wasnt too far from amsterdam centre.
