We had not booked this Hotel but were moved here by the Arthur Frommer had rain ingress in their rooms so could not be used.
We only recieved that news on trying to book in the AF, so were a little shocked especially as I spend a lot of time reviewing location and hotel - we prefer a smaller hotel ina quiet area, but what could we do!
Upon arrival at the Convent we received a wonderful reception with lots of information about the local area and Amsterdam in general.
Our room was large - a king size bed, armchair, Tv tea/coffe mini bar, and a full bath / shower over.
I note others have commented on the decor and the fact the hotel is getting a makeover so lets just say it was totally fine for the 2 nights we were there, clean quiet and comfortable.
I was at first concerned as was told it was near Dam Sq - NOT our type of holiday, but in fact its on the street behind so it was fine. There are trams and buses on the street but as Amsterdam is so easy to walk thats what we did.
The llocation is good for just about everything - just 10 mins to Central station. For us the best part was the closeness to the canal ring and Jordaan. Across the road and down 2 alleys brought us onto Singel and a stones throw to Greenwoods. Perfect. Across the canals and into the small streets full of bars and restaurants which are so very different from much of Amsterdam.
