It was with slight apprehension we boarded the hotel shuttle/coach from the airport. Previous experience has taught us to never presume that accommodation is what it says it is in the travel guides. I can happily report though that this ace was fantastic. Great location in the Museum Quarter of Amsterdam and within easy walking distances of s main attractions. Amsterdam is a city best enjoyed on foot after all. The room was clean, tea/coffee provided, excellent housekeeping and a fab bathroom (not allowing for the fact the plug in the bath was broken and despite reporting it it was not repaired during our stay). The only downside would be that it's a bit of a squeeze getting in the door due to the room design and being opposite the lift (room 204) was a bit annoying after a while. The hotel would probably do well to offer free wifi as do many other hotels/cafes/hotel coaches. Staff were overall extremely helpful and friendly although breakfast staff were a little erratic. We got offered a cooked breakfast the first day (inc in booking) but then they appeared to just ignore us on the second day. It pays to approach staff to ask for what you need. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone passing through Amsterdam who wants an alternative to all the tat and sleaze of the RLD. Will Definetly be back.
