I stayed here for two nights in mid September 2012. Its a beautifully furnished and uber stylish hotel set on a well used road close to lots of shops and cafes. The Manor Hotel has a impressive and luxury feel. My room was the stiletto shoe room (I will add pics) and had a great central view from the balcony. The bed was very comfortable and although it was cold at night - the duvet was chunky and padded enough to keep me pleasantly warm. The TV has around 9 channels and obviously there is a kettle, safe, power shower and mini fridge, hairdryer, info packs and a trouser stand. There's everything you would expect from Dutch 5 star in the Ajax themed hotel. The only thing I would mildly moan about is that the tax you pay for your stay (payable by everyone) is added at the end of your stay when you check out. It was around €8.50 for two nights. Left luggage was available to me for 2hours after I checked out too which is brilliant! The tram stops are situated right outside and taxis come to reception often - its around €16 to get to Central Dam by taxi and €2.75ish for an hour return tram ticket. There are speciality food shops and cafes dotted all around the hotel and a zoo is just a few stops on the tram.
The Manor's bar was lovely. Cool decor and a huge range of whiskeys and beverages. It was all extremely stylish and uber ergonomic. The staff were lovely, friendly and informative. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and although I return to Amsterdam in a few weeks and will stay at The Exchange Hotel, I will positively return to The Manor Hotel next year. Any Q's please ask. Amsterdam is an amazing place - book early for flights and especially your hotel for noticeable price differences. Well done The Manor Hotel for a stylish and quirky place to stay.
