Checked in late at night due to a flight delay. Tv did not work, ac did not work and cordless phone was so low on battery that u could not get a dial tone. Hmm? The front desk responded immediately and was able to change our room but we wonder why so many things did not work. Room decor is warm tones of rich taupes and browns. Modern bathrooms, ample closet space, comfy sofa, large windows offer a light filled ambience. A welcome room amenity described as "apple crumble" was a ridiculous concept- a pile of crumbs in a glass with no cutlery and some fresh fruit - (4 blackberries) in another glass. The following day's presentation of a glass of bluberries with a glass of candy and two chocolates looked oddly erotic but certainly appropriate for the edgy red light district location. Breakfast Buffet is superb - it offered great selection of fruits cheese, cold cuts and cooked to order hot selections and service is excelelnt. One morning room service coffee arrived on a lovely flower adorned tray with baked goods. Cant say enough about the level of service - simply flawless.
Hotel location is just at the edge of Amsterdam's notorious zone but the hotel is a quiet oasis.
