First time staying at this hotel and it was absolutely stunning. We booked a junior suite and got upgraded to a Prestige one bedroom suite. For anyone who has ever been to Amsterdam, or Europe for that matter, you know that hotel rooms are generally tiny unless you spend a significant amount of money. However traveling during the off-season, many hotels offer free upgrades to their guests if you request for it. However this is still a pricey hotel even during off-season. Normally the Prestige would be completely out of our price range.
Room: The suite was enormous and beautiful. We were one floor up from the lobby and had a sweeping view of the canal. Fortunately the soundproofing for the room was very good so we did not hear any street noise. There was a hallway as soon as you enter the room that leads to the living room and dining room. The view of the canal was magnificent from here. Dining room connects to another hallway full of closets leading to the bedroom. he bedroom was large with a large flatscreen TV and windows overlooking into the hotel. However the double blinds ensure that no light gets in unless you want it to. A coffeemaker with complimentary coffee pods and a hot water maker was provided. Mini bar had a selections of drinks but not sensored so you can remove the drinks and use the fridge.
Bed: The best bed of our entire trip (Madrid, Marrakech, and London as well). It was firm with real pillows! Many hotels have mediocre beds with awful pillows. This hotel had a firm and comfortable large king bed with regular sized and firm pillows. Surprising what we struggled with the most on this trip was even the five star hotels had crappy pillows that were either too soft or too flat or strangely shaped sizes.
Bathroom: My only complaint of this room was the toilet was separated from the bathroom (shower, bidet, and vanity) and located in the hallway. You needed to go through the 2 doors of the bathroom to reach the toilet from the bedroom. Otherwise the bathroom was large with a separate shower stall from the bathtub. Nice water pressure and water got hot quickly.
Location: Great location. Right across the canal was a pedestrian walk with lots of shopping and food. Grocery store and ATMs in the area as well. Easy to catch a cab with a cab stand close by and usually cabs in front of the hotel.
Service: Great service. All of our needs were taken care of.
Room Service/Housekeeping: 24 hour room service which is surprising in Amsterdam. We only ordered breakfast and it showed up on time and was well cooked but nothing special. Housekeeping did a good job the first night. The next night we got turndown service but it looked like they cleaned some of the room but then forgot to remove all the trash that they collected.
Overall a wonderful experience. Especially having so much space and a wonderful view in Amsterdam was a treat.
