We travelled to and from Amsterdam by train, staying for three nights at the beginning of a longer holiday across Europe.
The hotel is just 5 minutes from the station, which was perfect for us.The hotel feels pleasantly 'in the middle' of everything, and we walked everywhere really easily from Sint Nicolaas. The area felt fine to me; we didn't return till late most nights and it never felt like there was anything to worry about in the neighbourhood.
Communal areas and exterior of the hotel were appealing - some really nice attention to detail. Breakfast was good, staff laid-back
However, in common with other reviewers who had the misfortune to stay on the 4th floor, our room really wasn't up to much. It was tiny, stuffy and awkwardly shaped, which didn't bother us too much, but paired with the dubious-looking stains on the walls, un-hoovered carpet, shabby bathroom and budget mattress it really wasn't worth £150 a night or a 'boutique' label. I notice others have commented on the state the rooms are left in after they've been 'made up' for the day - ours looked like it had been rolled on by a labrador!
All in all, we left having had a great time in Amsterdam, but very much looking forward to a cleaner and more comfortable room for the next leg of our holiday. Would not stay here again!
