Almost nothing. Location is great, just on the edge of the town centre and a direct bus ride from Schipol airport (bus 197, stops outside the hotel, €5.00). Our room was large, 6ft double bed, table and armchairs, etc. I suspect from the numbering along the corridor that at some stage two rooms had been knocked into one, so the comments by some other reviewers about small rooms certainly weren't true for us. Comfortable, clean,just what one expects. Two gripes, TV quality wasn't great, flickery picture and only two UK channels - but we weren't in Amsterdam to watch TV. Breakfast choice was a bit restricted although perfectly adequate. Best bit, we were in town on King's Day (26 April this year) and I've never seen a city go so mad. Think of a University Rag Day multiplied by 10 and you have some idea. Of course, we wee actually timetabled to leave that day so our trip out to the airport was a bit worrying, since the city centre was completely closed to all forms of traffic apart from bicycles and canal boats. Would we use this hotel again - Difinitely.
