If only they would give this hotel a face lift, it might be an enjoyable experience.
Firstly, I was here on a business trip this time. We wanted something near the RAI conference centre and location wise, this hotel was great. however, it doesn't live up to its pictures on the website.
On the plus side. The beds are really comfortable and the shower, clean and modern. That's where it ends. The whole place needs a make over. It is tired and scruffy. It is the most basic hotel I have ever stayed in. The restaurant/breakfast area looks like a cafe and the breakfast is cereal, cold meat and cheese. Hot food consists of scrambled egg and mini sausages. The same everyday. You pop your toast into a toaster and hope it doesn't get burnt.
The rooms are all very dark. I stayed on the second floor at the back. There is no sound proofing and underlay under the carpet. So every time someone moved above, you could hear them. Fine if you had to be up and out early like me, not so good if you are on holiday.
Although helpful, the reception staff where a bit scruffy too. All wearing different attire and looking a bit fed up.
Plus side. Beds comfy, bathroom clean (well in my room), great location, near enough to everything, but far enough away to miss the noise of Central Amsterdam.
It's located in a very fashionable location, easy for town and easy for conference facilities.
That's where it ends.
