where to start with hotel blyss??
On arrival we were greeted with open arms very nice young asian girl working at reception great smile great manner.
We were very early as there is 2pm check in we arrived at 10am and thanks to the help of this young lady she informed us she could check in early.
So off we went very happy that we werent stuck roaming the streets of amsterdam with our luggage.......until we entered our room,the walls were dirty door was smashed at the back fire escape plan trown on the floor bed linen dirty....to clarify how dirty the room was i wore some white socks while walking on the floor and the bottom was completely black.
The cleaner does do a good job doh she came to us everyday with fresh towels and did give the room a going over but lets face a fact here she hasnt got much to work with this place needs a serious updating.
All in doh a lick of paint some new curtains,doors and carpets and it would be worth the 450euros for 4 nights..........
the location is great not to far of a walk to the main tourist areas
The staff are very pleasant(always say hello and goodbye)
On leaving the hotel the atmosphere was not great doh it was as if they were in a rush to get rid of us(the brazilian or young asian were not on duty)
keep the staff you have here well the 2 mentioned anyway
Due to the above i would not reccomend staying here
And if you do use the local coffee shop as much as possible and you wont notice the dirt
