I stayed here with my 15 month old daughter & had a lovely time. The first room they showed us was TINY. When I mentioned that I wasn't very pleased, they showed us to another that knocked my socks off! It had a balcony that stretched the length of the hotel overlooking the fountain, the bustling street & a peek view of the canal. It also had a separate office/desk area that was perfect for my daughter's cot. The arching windows & beautiful architecture made me feel fortunate to stay in such a beautiful hotel. (My 1st visit to Amsterdam was when I was a starving student). This was a HUGE contrast.
The trams run right outside & can be heard so if you're a super light sleeper, this may not be the place for you but my 15 mo old slept like.....well... a baby. Because the location is just steps away from one of the most bustling restaurant/night club areas (actually about a block away) there is definately more party noise on the weekends.
The hotel restaurant is well known for its Sunday brunch & even locals make a special effort to eat there. The soaring ceilings & tiled arches are wonderful & the food was good too. I think they have a pianist on the weekends.
The staff made a special effort to provide my daughter with a backpack full of goodies, a ducky bath mitt & special soaps. She loved it!
We stayed 4 nights & met friends there as well. This was a perfect base for seeing the entire city. We walked everywhere. It's close to museums, cafes, right nest to the canal cruises, Heineken museum, everything.
We would definitely stay there again.
