This hotel is within easy walking distance of the museum district and is in a quite leafy area just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. Arrived just after 14:00 checkin, and where told our room would not be ready for 90 minutes or so which was a big disappointment as we were tired and in need of some relaxation. The Reception staff were extremely busy, but also very helpful and friendly. Once the wait exceeded the 90 minutes, and the room was still not available we were upgraded to an 8th floor room with magnificant views over the city and a free evening meal in Roberto's Resturant, which was excellent.
The room was certainly large enough, clean and very comfortable, a large bathroom, plenty of cupboard space and everything we needed close at hand. Housekeeping toured the hotel in the evening offering complimentary water, tea and coffee refills and a turndown service if required. The only downside is the lack of free internet in the room, it is available in the public areas, but we found it slow.
Breakfast was the highlight of the stay. Johnny Wills, the Breakfast Chef, and his team, made us feel part of the family from the moment we walked in, they couldn't do enough for us, producing excellent, high quality food from the kitchens in moments, attentive service, and still had time to make sure everything was fine when the Resturant was full. Johnny even adapted a pancake recipe to cover my dietary requirements, and they where absolutely delicious. Breakfast will never be the same again!
All the staff were really friendly, genuinely seeming to care and go out of their way to be helpful. Dann on Reception deserves a special mention for sorting out our room and being super helpful. Next time we are in Amsterdam this place will be top of the list of places to stay.
We were in Amsterdam during the recent "Nuclear Summit" and some of the delegates stayed in the hotel. At times it seemed over run with Dutch Police and Security, but it was never really obtrusive and never got in our way. Be aware that parking is expensive, but so is parking everywhere else in Amsterdam.
