Being located in about the equivalent distance as Clapham from Central London isn't exactly a bad thing. With 2 trams (the 2 and the 16) serving a quick route (about 10 minutes) to the central areas of Amsterdam about every 5-10 minutes all day, it was a quiet and convenient location that one shouldn't be put off by. The service in the Memphis was great. The receptionist was helpful and pleasant, and the rest of the staff I conversed with had an impressive language repertoire. Regarding the rooms, they are very, very clean, and whilst being quite interestingly decorated, they remain corporate and professional. The food and bar, despite nice, is notably pricey, with a tea costing above 2 Euros and the rest of the menu's prices falling like dominoes. I would eat out if you can, at the nearby Brasserie De Joffers, for the absolutely exquisite food and service that is well worth the price. I slept like a log, but I am aware that different rooms have different noise levels from pipes. But on the whole, for a substantial cheque, the EMB Memphis delivers what you'd expect: great service, pleasant and clean rooms, an easy commute in a very amicable neighborhood, and an overpriced restaurant. Although, don't expect much more material assets than that.
