Most certainly this is a very fine hotel. Location is excellent, just a few steps from Dam square. Service, style and environment is definitely five genuine stars. It's also spacious considering being in the middle of the cramped streets of the older parts of Ams. There's even an inner yard where you can have a drink and relax during the summer months. Standard rooms are fairly large with all the things you expect in a hotel of this caliber. Beds are very comfortable, but could be a bit soft for people with back problems. Climate control works perfectly. The staff is very correct, service minded and friendly without leading to exaggerations. Breakfast is served in the Michelin-starred restaurant "Bridges". A good variety of fruit, dairy products, ham, marmalade etc is presented - but it's not overwhelming; I've had many better breakfast experiences. Eggs are made to order and tastes ok, but nothing special. Very narrow selection of bread. Breakfast is EUR 37 which is too much for what you get.
Overall though, this hotel will deliver what you expect of a top establishment.
