I stayed here for a weekend with my sister in August 2012. We arrived at 10am and although check in was not until 2pm, our room was ready and we were able to check in quickly and be shown our room.
The room was modern, clean, fresh and nicely decorated. The room was extremely small, though this is expected in Amsterdam and it is sufficient for a short stay. Bathroom was lovely, modern, again really small but sufficient. The beds were extremely comfy! From out window we had lovely views of Vondelpark.
However, just because it is on the edge of Vondelpark, does not mean it is central. It is situated in a quiet residential area, a few shops, cafes and bars nearby for breakfast or tea but no good for a lively night out.
We got the bus from the airport and got off at Haarmlestation which was about a 10 min walk from the hotel. There was a tram stop nearby to take you to the centre and all other areas. Was a bit confusing at first but the reception staff are happy to provide you with directions and tram numbers to help.
The tram is fine but should you stay out late you cannot get the tram back as they finish at 12. A taxi from the Leidsplein was 13 euros.
I would stay here again but would prefer to stay more central. I would recommend staying in the Leidsplein area as there is lots to do at night here. However, I found it extremely hard to find a hotel within the centre that did not have terrible, off putting reviews hence why I ended up staying so far out.
This hotel is great though and for a short stay the location is perfectly fine!
