We had been recommended this by friends so knew it was a good hotel. We've stayed at a number of hotels in Amsterdam and for location and service this was the best so far.
The welcome was very warm including a glass of champagne. All the staff we met were so helpful, particularly with restaurant bookings.
As our room didn't have a bath we asked to upgrade - 16 euros a night for canal view room. This proved worthwhile as we were allocated an executive room with a great view.
The rooms aren't huge but don't need to be, you have everything you need and the heating is very effective so makes the rooms very snug and cosy when it is -10 degrees outside.
The lounge area is a great place to relax, don't think we've ever spent much time in the lounge area of any hotel but here it has everything. Snacks throughout the day, tea, coffee, soft drinks and spirits available all day and wines come out around 4pm.
It is also very sociable - if you want it to be. And the 2 computers are really useful if you need to print anything.
This did cost slightly more than one of our favourite 5 star hotels in Amsterdam but as it is all inclusive it is well worth the extra. As it is so central it is lovely to be able to keep popping back to the hotel to relax in between shopping trips, museums etc.
