A short and sweet review to sum up this hotel following a stay in a superior kingsize room we paid £83 for through Expedia.
It is situated in a very central location, a few minutes walk from the central station (and coach drop-off points). It is a new building, which is a bit of a rarity in Amsterdam, and very futuristic looking, again a rarity in such a classical city. Upon entry the staff were pleasant, the lobby spotless and the open-fireplace in the restaurant/bar inviting. To classify the feel, I would say a medium to upper grade business class hotel in the UK. They happily stored our bag when we arrived in Amsterdam at 09:00 (check-in is at 14:00) and provided a receipt for this. Again they took our bags and stored them for us when we checked out at 12:00 the next day as we were not leaving Amsterdam until 17:00.
The décor is actually quite unusual, hallways are carpeted as though you are walking down a cobbled Amsterdam side-street and some of the room doors are made to look the same. The corridors and room were spotlessly clean and all fixtures and fittings well secured. There is a free to use safe in the wardrobe (always a bonus) and the usual TV/mini bar facilities.
The room itself was triangular in shape, but provided ample room (for Amsterdam standard anyway) with an effective heater/air conditioner located in the corner of the room, although the windows don't open there is a large fresh-air vent built into the pane. The bathroom was big enough to be comfortable and functional. Provided toiletries were of good quality and appreciated.
The bathroom leads me to my only gripe, the water supply in this hotel has woefully weak pressure, while the bath with the over-shower facility were spotless and the shower head itself of good quality, it was very difficult to get anything other than a very faint drizzle of water, and when you did it ran hot and then cold. I have found this to be the case in many buildings in Amsterdam but was expecting better from such a new looking building. Perhaps this is common everywhere in the city, but it seems worth a mention as a good shower is becoming a basic staple of any international hotel.
That being said, the bed was fantastic. Being kingsize it was plenty big enough, but it was also extremely comfortable, three of the best pillows I have ever used were provided and a fourth available in the wardrobe. We could only describe it as "like sleeping in a cloud", in fact it almost became a highlight of our short break!
There is a gym/health spa next door, but it is not specifically linked to the hotel and we didn't make use of it, so I won't make any specific comments.
To sum this hotel up, I don't think I can suggest their retail room prices are reasonable, they aren't, but if you get a deal as we did and pay between £80 and 120 (depending on the room type), I think you would be hard pressed to feel disappointed, especially when compared to Amsterdam's other offerings around the same price bracket.
