Hotel is strategically located in leidseplein, close to vondelpark and museumplein, while dam square is abt 10-15mins walk. It's facing a canal. Plenty of comedy shows, restaurants, bars including hard rock cafe etc after sunset. Hotel building is art deco & the restaurant, Cafe American are also mentioned as a place to be seen in a guidebook which features the most amazing decor and great lemon pie. Stayed for 3 nights & was upgraded to deluxe room with leidseplein view. Room and bathroom was spacious. Sleep was very comfortable with firm mattress, soft blankets and pillows except that the walls are thin so noisy if u have neighbours. Toiletries offered are "ritual" brand which smells amazing. The hotel offers free business centre which is convenient to print out online check in boarding pass or online tickets etc.Overall service is good with prompt attention to requests. Overall, great stay & would certainly stay here again.
