Stayed in this hotel in March 2014 for a business trip.
Hotel is beautifully situated on the Amstel river. The building is old with a classic french style. I'm not usually into that style but they pulled it off perfectly in this hotel.
The staff were wonderful, friendly, and very helpful.
Location was not bad. It was walking distance from most of the attractions in the area (Heineken Brewery, Van Gogh Museum, and Red Light District). But make sure to bring your walking shoes because you're going to walk a lot.
Room was lovely and very spacious. So was the bathroom.
Didn't try the restaurants or room service so I can't comment on those. The breakfast was very good.
Would I stay there again? Probably not...But wouldn't complain if I did. Personally, I prefer hotels with more of a modern chic vibe and younger crown.
