This is a really nice, modern, comfortable hotel which meets all your basic needs. It's clean, and best of all after a hard day sightseeing it's nice and quiet. The grown up hairdryer was a welcome change to the usual puffs of air.
The location is perfect, the no 1 tram stops right outside and at the back is the beautiful Vondelpark. You can be in the centre or the museum district in 10-15 mins on the tram or on a bike. The hotel rents out bikes at 15 euro a day/25 euro for 2 days which is about the going rate. It's also really easy to get to and from the airport (about 30 mins).
There are plenty of good restaurants and bars in the area so you can avoid the more obvious tourist traps by staying local. Fish lovers should try the seafood bar on Van Baerlestraat - delicious.
The wifi was a bit weak in rm 412.
The staff are really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and a big thanks to Uri for his first aid services after I came a cropper on my bike.
