Me and a colleague have recently returned from a 1 night stay in this hotel - extending our stay after a work convention on the river cruise ships.
After reading some of the poor reviews - I must say I am really rather surprised as to how and why other guests have rated this hotel so badly. I can understand that this hotel is probably more suited to a 3* plus, rather than a 4* - however I believe the star rating is based on the location more than anything.
The hotel was very easy to find, just off Dam Square, the hotel reception were very efficient and helpful, we stayed in room 229 - not much of a view out the window however it was dark when we arrived anyway.
The room provided you with adequate facilites, functional and fairly modern bathroom, beds were comfy, free wifi for all guests in public areas and some main english channels on the television.
The breakfast was in the Brassiere restaurant on the reception floor - Perfectly adequate to fill you up until lunch, offering Toast, Scrambled Egg, Bacon, Sausage and continental hams, cheese etc;
The hotel were very helpful to store our luggage in a store room after we checked out so we didnt have to cart it around as we explored the city for the rest of the day.
I absolutely loved amsterdam, would certainly recommend this hotel and stay here again.
