Our trip to Amsterdam for a wedding could have been a problem with parking in the centre being at a premium. Problem solved by a very helpful staff who let us have our room early so we could change (after a rough ferry crossing), then the free parking is a huge bonus, together with the free shuttle bus to take you either to the city or to the ferry across to Central Station. Our room was huge and very thoughtfully planned with all that a weary traveller would need (apart from an extra couple of pillows for the super-kingsize bed). The area is quiet with reasonably easy access. We didn't use the hotels catering facilities as we were at the wedding, but on the rest of the facilities and its position I would stay there again and happily recommend it .
