It was not my choice, I usually go to another hotel by the canals but a Dutch friend recommended it. He said it´s new, next to all the museums, concert hall and very close to the center without all the noise and tourists...like us. He was right. It was the first time I took my family to Amsterdam - four daughters (from 14 to 9) - they all want to return, not because of the weather, canals, bike rides, Rijkmuseum or the Van Gogh...but because of the hotel.
The hotel has the best service I have encountered in Europe and that goes for all of it - including the Connaught. The personnel is most helpful. I will just mention Peter - the host - who my wife and I drove crazy with reservations but I extend it to everyone. I did not go to the restaurant but the food at room service was pretty good to say the least. The rooms, we had 3 and they were all different, were modern, techy and comfortable. The spa was excellent as my wife and children could attest, they miss it already and we just left!
Anyway, I hope this helps - it´s the opinion of a well travelled Spaniard for whatever it´s worth. If you are going alone with your friend, wife or with a larger family this should be your top option without a doubt.
