We arrived at the hotel in the morning for our 2 night stay in Amsterdam and from the start we were very impressed by how accommodating the staff were --- coffee offered, luggage stored and great hints/directions for sightseeing even before we checked-in. The hotel is ideally located a pleasant distance from the hussle & bussle of central Amsterdam --- the tram line out front makes getting to any location in Amsterdam very convient. Amsterdam's public transportation system is great. Our room was more than adequate on the back of the hotel with a small balcony. It was quite, simply furnished and spotlessly clean --- with comfortable king beds and modern bathrooms. The restaurant was excellent and breakfast was good. We would definetly recommend staying at Hotel Restaurant Larende if you are looking for reasonably priced, conviently located and clean modern accomodation.
