I was in this hotel attracted by a very good offer in comparison with the average obtainable in Amsterdam. The hotel is located close to "Gasperplas" metro station (more or less 150 meters from a side entrance of the hotel) that is one of the two terminal stations of 53 red line. You can easily reach the other terminal station of the 53 red line (Amsterdam Central Station) in less than 25 minutes: metro trains are very frequent during duty hours and I had no problems during the weekend as well. The structure of the hotel recalls the typical American motel with windows and doors at different floors having view on a big parking lot. There are also rooms on the back of the building with view on a wonderful garden but we were not so lucky to get a room in the back and unfortunately two times over the weekend we have been waken up in the middle of the night by the horn of one of the several buses parked in front of the building. The room was not so big while the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was serviced only with a very old heater that worked only once (it has a timer that allows to use it for periods not longer than 15 minutes at a time); there was no hair dryer and although towels were clean and changed every day always had very light spots on them (not the usual sharp white I am used to find in the hotels). On the first day I asked the reception to have two additional pillows, to replace a bad bulb and to repair the bathroom's heater and after my first day in Amsterdam in the evening I discovered that no pillows had been provided, the heater had not been repaired and luckily only the broken bulb had been replaced. The furniture inside the room is very basic and old fashioned: there is no place where to put your baggage apart from the top space of the unique wardrobe and there is only one bedside table. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel also because it appeared really too expensive (12 Euros per person) and condition of common spaces was sometimes poor. Reception personnel were always kind and there is parking available for car (you should ask for a code to open the bar at the exit). The hotel has available a very fast and free wifi internet that has been really great and useful. Summing up, I recommend this hotel only if you want to save money to visit Amsterdam avoiding city centre and you are ready to accept a low level service.
