With us taking 2, 19 year olds we wanted somewhere quiet but close to the station and centre. It had to be on a canal and near enough a tram line to see some of A'dam. From past reviews I'd read, Sebastian's sounded just what we needed and we were not disappointed. The hotel treated us like friends from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. We arrived early and were invited into the bar for a welcome drink whilst the rooms were serviced. The receptionist came and offered us a map and some advice on shopping opportunities to the girls as it was their 1st visit. When the girls room was ready we went up for a freshly made coffee from the machines that are in all rooms and their reaction of "Wow!" said it all. The rooms were clean, comfy, warm and a good size for Amsterdam. The split level area in front of the window made a great place to sit and people watch and it is worth paying a bit extra for the canal view rooms. I thought I'd booked room only as my wife and the girls rarely eat when they first get up but whilst waiting for the rooms we were told that we could have the complimentary breakfast which was served until the civilized hour of 11:00. The girls were so impressed with everything else in the hotel that they were up before us and down for breakfast. I'd told them it would be continental style but I was wrong again as there were; sausages, crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms and beans as well as the usual cereal, croissants, ham, cheese etc. I would recommend Sebastian's to anyone and it was a shame our stay was so short and just a taster for the girls. They have both said they would love to return to A'dam and it would have to be to Sebastian's for their stay.
