We recently spent four days in Amsterdam and stayed at this great hotel. Our overnight flight arrived in the early morning and we were able to check into our room by 9 a.m. - an unexpected and delightful perk. We easily walked to the hotel from Central Station. The room was comfortable and very quiet. We were in the back tower away from World Cup celebrations in the little plaza out front. I expect the rooms facing the square would have been less restful. The hotel was so central that we easily walked to many points of interest in Amsterdam even though the tram was just outside the door. The staff were agreeable and helpful. Numerous restaurants were nearby ranging from inexpensive to pricey. Despite costing extra, a very nice breakfast buffet was available in a pleasant breakfast room. It was so adequate that lunch was often not necessary. Alternatively, good little cafes are nearby where breakfast is much less costly. We would go back to this hotel without a second thought.
