I was in Amsterdam for my honeymoon for 4 days. After a 25 days long trip I was ending my trip in Amsterdam. Having read the reviews for this property on trip adviser I was really scared.
So the hotel is 5 mins walking from Amsterdam Central metro station. The station itself is 15-20 minutes from the airport via intercity metro which runs every 10-15 minutes.
When I entered I was greeted by an absolutely wonderful and friendly staff. They gave us champagne and congratulated us for our honeymoon. The concierge in particular is an old sweet man. Our room was 449 on the 4th floor facing the left side canal. The room was really big and spacious. The bathroom was clean and had a nice bath tub. The breakfast was elaborate and tasty.
A few comments on what people have written about the property:
1. The property is definitely a 5 star with sauna, swimming pool, Nice restaurants and big spacious rooms. The entire issue is that the property is old. The carpet, lifts, rooms look a decade old. As long as cleanliness is concerned I found no issues.
2. I did not face any issues as long as noise is concerned. But this might have to do with March not being a peak season. But given the location of the property it is not really there fault that it is noisy. Red light area is 5 mins walking, the hotel is surrounded by nice bars and restaurants. So being in the middle of the party town you cannot do away with the noise.
3. The beds as such are comfortable. I did not find any issues like stains or bed moths. But yes I agree the springs are broken and you can feel them at several areas.
4. The property is great value for money if you get a good deal like I got. They give you free wi-fi in the room, serve water and tea at the hotel lobby through out the day.
