Hotel isn't bad.
Bit dated and could do with renovation. Wee nicks and issues here and there such as a slightly leaking bathroom tap, only one slow lift to serve 5 floors. Room furniture dated and fashioned but yet functional. Would get the same bed comfort from holiday inn express.
Plus points - staff like Rutger at front desk were fantastic. Can't remember all their names but very friendly and helpful. Book the canal tour with wine and cheese, absolute must and can be booked from lobby. They also pick you up direct from the quay at the rear of the hotel on river amstel. The hotel is very close to rembrandtplein which is the nearest place for eating out. The downside to this being that it can be noisy if you're looking a relaxing night as its so warm windows are opened meaning you can hear everything. You also hear the bin lorries collecting all the bottles at 8am. It's also 20minute walk to most attractions which is great considering its a nice city to walk around. Breakfast is nice but expensive considering you can head to mcdonalds 5minutes away and get a lovely croissant and coffee for like 3euro.
In short a decent hotel and I would stay again. Cant fault the staff or location. Its decent value but biggest drawback would be it is in dire need of upgrades to the rooms and facilities. Ps. I've seen a lot of people slating the wifi. I never had an issue with it and we were on 4th floor. Bit of modernisation and it would have been perfect.
