The hotel is in the heart of Amsterdam...so please be ready to hear the sounds of the city at all hours of the day and night! The hotel is right around the corner from The Dam and within 2 blocks of the Red Light district, several major shopping streets, and the tram lines. We walked about 10 mins from the Centraal Station to get to the RHO. There are no canal boats that pass near there. The hotel itself seems nice until you get up into the rooms. Despite elevators, we still needed to carry our suitcases up several short stairs, seemingly randomly placed. The room was VERY small. We were given the option of 1 big bed or two twins. I (mistakenly?) asked for the 1 "big" bed and was given a room with a very small double bed. There wasn't much space in the room, and we had to use the bed to access our suitcase. There was a flat screen TV in the room, with 1 english station (CNN Europe). Breakfast was included in the price but we had to wait in line one day because of the crowd. The room is large, but they have a LOT of guests! Breakfast included scrambled and hard boiled eggs, bacon, sliced meats and cheeses, yogurt, cereals, breads, pancakes (real cakes, not light fluffy ones we expect in the states), pastries, orange juice, coffee and teas. The staff spoke very good english and was very helpful. The keys are unique and should be turned in before you leave the hotel. If you lose the key, it can easily be traced back to your room, which isn't safe. The bathroom was small, but adequate. The towels were thin, but the worst part was the lack of water pressure (we were only on the 2nd floor) and the fact that the water temperature kept fluctuating between freezing and scalding with no rhyme or reason. The bed, as I said before, was small, but generally comfortable. There was 1 extra pillow (for a total of 3) which were not that comfortable at all. I did not sleep well because of the street noise (people yelling and carrying on well into the wee hours of the night despite it being Tues-Thurs) as well as the street cleaners and garbage trucks.
