First of all, the hotel is a little far from the city center. After you come out of Amsterdam Central Station, take tram 25 to its last stop, and walk past the bridge. You will see the 18-floor building with a big "Mercure" sign on top. It's highly recommended to buy a day pass for 7.7 Euros which is valid for 24 hours (over night). Otherwise, a single 1 hour ticket costs 3 euros.
The hotel is in an isolated and quiet area overlooking the canal. Across the bridge is a large area of residential district, where you can find grocery stores, supermarket, restaurants and pubs.
On the first night, we got our room on the 18th(top) floor. Great view and excellent soundproofing! The hotel in general looks very new, hence the room looks new and clean, as well as quite spacious. We slept so well.
And to my surprise, they are even equipped with a small gym, nothing fancy though. Weight rack ranges from 4 to 14 kgs dumbbells, plus 2 treadmills a compound cable machine. I got 2 good workout sessions out of it. So bring your sportswear! They also have a sauna but I did not have time to try it.
Their front desk staff are friendly enough and no complaints in general for their services.
