In Amsterdam on holiday with the family (2 adults and 2 teenage girls); I booked a separate room for the kids. I had been to Amsterdam many times before and wanted to show everyone the sites. I knew this hotel was in the "thick" of everything...in probably the most extreme touristy part of the entire city of Amsterdam, BUT it's directly across the street from the Central Station. So, coming from Schipol on the train or going on a day trip from the Central Station, you can't beat the location. The rooms were nice. Updated enough but not 100% new. We were given the "inside" "quiet" rooms and that was probably a good thing, because again, this place is smack dab in the middle of it all; just a stones throw from the Central Station, The Red Light District and the top of Dam Straat. The bathroom was clean and up to date but like other European hotel bathrooms, it had a funky bathtub/shower that was very narrow. Water pressure was good and we were kept supplied with a plenty of little hotel shampoo's and soaps that smelled good. Free WiFi. Concierge was outstanding , particularly Dennis, who radiated enthusiasm and helpfulness. The place has an older wing (we stayed in) and a newer wing (we did not get to see that). Elevators were responsive but there was also a central, large stairway I purposely (I like to take the stairs) made use of several times going up or coming down from our 4th floor room. Bottom Line, even though there are nicer, more luxurious, more quaint hotels available close by I would stay here again; simply for the fact that you don't need to schlep your luggage far from Central Station if you take the train from the airport to the city center.
