Together with my wife, I stayed 6 days in Fita at the beginning of september.
The hotel is very well placed, very close to the main Amsterdam museums and 30-40 minutes walk from downtown. Also, there is easy acces from the airport by bus 197 that has a stop very close to the hotel. In the surroundings of Leidseplein, which is very close, there are lots of restaurants where you can try all kind of food (argentinian, greek, asian…).
At the check-in, althought we had booked and paid for a spacious room (27 m2) we were given a small one (14 m2). Immediately we asked to be accomodated in type of room we had paid for, but Roel lied to us saying that this is really a spacious room. We had to insist and to tell him that we have already seen pictures of the rooms on internet and we know what we were talking about. Finally, he moved us in the appropriate room which was obvious much larger than the first one. It was not a mistake, it was clearly an attempt to cheat on us, giving us a cheaper room than the one we had paid for. It was not a good beginning in this hotel.
Otherwise, the staff is very kind and helpful and the room is very well kept. The tea and coffee makers in the room were very useful. The WiFi was also good. There is no minibar in the room, but you can help yourself with a beer or a soft drink from a refrigerator placed in the basement.
On the other hand, the breakfast is the weakest aspect of this hotel. It laks variety (even for a 3 stars hotel) and even quantity. Every morning the same thing: yellow cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, a few vegetables and fruits. Additionally, one could order pancakes, which were too sweet for our taste. Moreover, at the buffet we never found more than 7-8 very small and thin slices of cheese, 6-7 very thin slices of tomatos and cucumbers, a few pieces of bacon, 2-3 helpings of eggs. These quantities vanished very fast, and the personnel was not very hurried to add new food.
All in all, it’s not a bad hotel but the staff could improve some things to make it better.
