We booked this hotel for one night while we were on a 24 hour layover at Schipol on our way to South Africa for our honeymoon. The manager Paul could not have been more accommodating to our needs!
We had earlier arranged with Paul that we would have an early arrival due to our inbound flight from the States. We arrived at 9:00 am, and Paul brought us into the breakfast room and offered us something to eat with the other guests. This was such a nice touch considering that we would not be able to have breakfast the next morning due to our early flight. Since we were there so early, Paul very apologetically informed us that our room would not be ready until 11:00am. Quite honestly we were so impressed that it would be ready that early! We set off wandering the city for an hour and by the time we came back, the room was ready.
We paid for a smaller room, but were given one of their standard rooms. The room was HUGE by European standards. It consisted of a king bed (two twins pushed together), a couch, desk, dresser, and mini-bar. We could have held dance in the middle of the room it was so big. The bathroom was simple and clean, and the shower pressure was awesome. Don’t come here expecting a fancy bathroom, because you won’t get it; it is very utilitarian.
The hotel is set on an idyllic street right next to a police station so it is very safe. It is not a rowdy street or hotel so if you are coming to Amsterdam to party this may not be the hotel for you. If you are looking for something romantic this is perfect.
Overall this hotel was exactly what we were looking for on our one night stay in Amsterdam. For the price you can’t beat it!
