located just on edge of city, and by metro you can get to nearest station (overamstel) in 12 min from centraal station, then it is a 10 minute walk, so if weather is good should not be an issue. from airport it takes 15 min to get to centraal station, so within 45 minutes from airport by public transport is not a bad location, but if you want to be in the middle of everything then perhaps not the place for you.
service is ok, room is large enough - but lack of a bath could be stated clearly on the website for those who might want it? bed is comfortable, but strange that the room service only leave 1 bath towel between a couple.... why assume 1 person is staying? new decor is reasonably fresh.
it is quite expensive to eat at the hotel restaurant though - 55 euro for 1 soup, 1 main course and 1 desert with 3 glasses of wine.
breakfast is good, although food items do run out and not replaced, at least while I was there.
ferry at 10am in morning from back of hotel to go to Anne Frank's house is a good idea at 5 euro person. should make more of it on website - why just leave it as leaflet in the room?
