First impressions are great at this hotel - a large airy reception with some good decorative features. Look out for the shoal of silver herrings over the bar and the cosy fire feature. The rooms were spacious and well equipped.
We had a really good meal in the restaurant - modern menu with great ingredients.
The breakfast is €22 but was worth it with an excellent range of food, good breads and bean to cup coffee.
I went for a run along the local cycle paths and although this is an out of town area there is plenty of greenery and of course lots of canals and bridges!
We were visiting on business at the RAI, which was 20 minutes walk or one stop on the tram which is nearby.
To get into the centre of Amsterdam there was the 51 tram nearby and there was also a 10am boat trip into Amsterdam for €5, taxi was about €20.
So - this is a great out of town hotel, perfect for business but if you don't mind travelling by public transport it was also a great option for a holiday. I loved Amsterdam and would definitely come back here.
