Though I am a frequent visitor to Amsterdam it is 45 years since I stayed in this hotel. As you can imagine things have changed,but only for the better.The hotel is larger and very 21st century . All the modern conveniences of internet,radio t.v. en suite bathrooms,none of which existed in1967.But the famous Dutch hospitality has not altered at all.From the moment I arrived soaked through early on Tuesday morning,too early to officially check in ,the staff put themselves out. By the time I had filled out the registration form my room was magically ready.The breakfasts provided are typically of the continental type but the bread is fresh to cut yourself,the cold meats constantly replenished,as were the boiled eggs.The young lady who helped in the restaurant remembered my coffee order on all the following breakfasts,no mean feat with a busy restaurant. As I say things have changed but the hotel is still in the centre of things,near the station ,near to tram and bus routes,and on one of the prettiest canals. The only change I didn't appreciate ,it is no longer 17 guilders a night.
