Stayed here Oct 25 and 26 2013. Struggled with luggage up steep and shallow front steps, tripping hazards everywhere, watch your step, no help here or getting luggage to room. Lobby is dumpy with a worn out rug and wood floor badly in need of refinishing, stuffed lion head and some weird chairs made of antlers for decor. Lift, hallways, and breakfast room dingy and depressing. Room 210 is tiny, not even a nightstand, IKEA type furniture, curtain dirty and torn, towels worn, some with holes, I'd guess there weren't enough towels to restock so clean ones weren't available until late afternoon. Shower plumbing leaked.
$200 per night?????
I can't believe the photos are of the same place we stayed in, good photographer or photoshopper; or Wyndham would put their name on the place, or we stayed in the same place as other reviewers.
Employees seemed to be doing their best with what they had to work with which wasn't much.
This hotel could be made into something decent and charming without a lot of work and money, until then, skip it.
Rijksmuseum was a big disappointment, overly crowded, poorly organized with some viewers moving right to left, others left to right, some just pushing from back. It was closed for eight years and it's already obsolete.
I'd never recommend the Poet Hotel or Amsterdam.
