The hotel is in a quiet residential area about 10 minutes walk from the Museum area. After a busy day in the rather crowded city centre it was good to get back to a more orderly and peaceful place.
Our double room had good quality furnishing, good lighting, comfortable bed and very clean bathroom with large bath sheets not always found these days in hotels. Our son's single room was fairly small but good compared with many European capitals.
We found all the staff helpful and efficient.
Brits - this hotel provides a kettle in each room. It might be 'hidden' in a drawer or cupboard but just keep looking and you will find it. There is a good supermarket near the concert hall in the Museum Plein where you can top up beverage supplies and anything else you might need.
There are good restaurants nearby. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on that.
All round it suited us well and we would return.
Note that all hotel guests in Amsterdam must pay a city tax - currently 5.5%, payable on checking out. This seems to be increasingly the case in Europe so be prepared.
