A romantic break to Amsterdam was ruined by the receptionist at this supposedly top Dutch hotel.
I booked the much more expensive executive "river view" room to spoil my wife with our stay in Amsterdam.
Also to mention this is low season with low occupancy in mid November
The receptionist allocated a room next to elevator on 1st floor with a "view" of the river blocked by roof of an extension room below us, and our room position on top op their club disco, which has bass drums booming into our room until very late.
I am a loyalty programme member of this hotel chain.
Reception could not have chosen to put us in a worst position in this hotel.
My question is "Why"
