Was in Amsterdam for overnight to see an exhibit and chose this hotel based on reviews. Not disappointed. Hotel is a calm refuge from the touristic bustle only minutes away. Room was spacious, well appointed, comfortably arranged and spotlessly clean--believe it was a deluxe. There was minimal street noise with the curtains drawn though the windows are not double glazed. Excellent bed and linens. Bath was completely modern, large and functional with amenities like heated floor and towel bar, rain shower in separate shower, even a scale. No problem with water pressure, but one does hear some plumbing noise which is to be expected in an old structure.
Service was professional and friendly. On arriving early for check in but wanting get a bit oriented before setting out, we had lunch from the room service menu in the library which was quite good. The public places are comfortable and I appreciated having original art all around--such a relief from all that vacuous hotel 'art'. The front desk made dinner reservations, had museum tickets on hand and generally was very helpful. It's definitely worthwhile to have breakfast in the hotel if you take a full breakfast rather than just coffee. Kitchen was very accommodating with special requests.
Room service (for drinks) was almost instantaneous. The hotel also upgraded our room after I called to have a room close to lobby--a fact I really appreciate.
We really enjoyed staying in this hotel and will return and recommend to others. Apart from the virtues of hotel itself, its location cannot be beat as it is on a lovely canal and one can walk to train station, Hermitage, Jordaan, Museum quarter 15-20 minutes and have many choice of restaurants within a few minutes walk.
