This hotel is right in the Center of Amsterdam with less than 5 mins walking distance from Dam square and less than 15mins from central station. Location is therefore perfect. The space restriction hits you at first, starting from the small reception area, the narrow, steep staircase and the room dimensions. The shower/toilet room was especially challenging to use. In fact there is no breakfast area but this is served to your room, at a time to your convenience. However I understood that most hotels in central Dam are structured this way and after a day or two you get used to it. Overall room was clean and serviced well. Breakfast light but very fresh. I would reconsider booking to this hotel again in the event of another visit to this beautiful city. Not sure if something can be done to remedy, but TV location on top of bed was somewhat uncomfortable, whilst carrying jam packed suitcases down those stairs was somewhat of a killer. Also, our room lacked air conditioning - it was not really needed and keeping window ajar was good enough when the evenings got a bit warm. Otherwise pleasant stay! PS. Would have given 3.5 rating if available - considering basic services provided I think this is fair.
