Visiting Amsterdam for business this week I decided to stay somewhere different and booked this small luxury hotel for 2 nights.
The hotel is well positioned and more traditional than the Conservatorium where others in my group decided to stay.
We booked through Expedia VIP Elite and were upgraded on check in to Junior Suites on the 3rd and 4th floors. Whilst small, the accommodation was very well appointed with small sitting rooms, iPad and full entertainment system although I found the lighting impossible to fathom, as indeed was the coffee maker which should come with clear instructions.
Comfortable big beds, quality bed linen and in room amenities and the biggest and heaviest pillows I have ever seen. Large, beautifully appointed floor to ceiling marble bathrooms with good showers.
Whist expensive by any standard this hotel gets my vote as a serious alternative to other allegedly 5 star hotels in Amsterdam.
