Stayed here on my way to Aruba and on the way back from Curacao earlier in the year. We had booked via lhw.com so got good rates on superior rooms etc. Upon arrival I found that my bags had not arrived the hotel staff provided my with lots of hygieneproducts deo,hairbrush, toothbrush/paste etc. I also got a chocolate version of a Rembrandt painting, some genever(dutch liquer) with gold leaf in it which is traditional for a Dutch bride to get. I also got a lot of other little gifts around the room, champagne, chocolates, fruit etc. Great attention to detail.
On my return trip I stayed in a different suite, not in the new part of the building. The bathroom was modern but too squashed, there are glass walls between the tiolet and the shower, very strange , the room was fine but the decor was a little shabby, light fittings hanging off the wall in our hall area, very dated even for the type of building it is the room decor needs to look clean not dated. I had food in my room as I was flying early during each stay, mostly brekfast , typical dutch fare, not great but adequate. Would I stay here again , probably but thats only because I stayed there during my honeymoon. Would it be my first choice in Amsterdam, no. Only for two things, I know amsterdam well and it's just an alright location for me. I have stayed in lesser "styled rooms" but in much better hotels and for a more reasonable price and the rooms had balconies that were modern, in fact for the balcony we had to book a suite in this hotel. If you stay at the lesser star NH Doelen ( attached to this hotel ), you can have the same balcony overlooking the same canal for €300 cheaper a night........not great service at the Doelen but...it is a recession
