We came to Amsterdam as a final break before our baby is born in April.
We absolutely loved the city!
717 is a beautiful building in one of the best locations imaginable.
Our room was the Liszt - on the lower ground floor.
We got the room in a E200 Winter sale, and at this price it was OK.
However the usual cost of the room is E300, and I would have been really disappointed if we had paid this much!
In short - beautiful space, lovely sitting room with view of canal. Bedroom a bit dark and over
looking courtyard, but I expected this as it is a cheaper room and on the lower ground floor.
The bad bits are: the shower needs renewing, new shower heads, tiles and grouting. They are OK but a bit worse for wear given the standard of the hotel. The same goes for the sisal flooring in the living room - a bit worn!
And the toilet! Oh the toilet... It is far too small - far, far too small. So small that you cannot believe it. Or use it. Very odd.
And the heating would not switch off! The living room was like a death by a thousand suns - although it wasnt too much of a problem in the evenings after walking the very cold streets by day... By way of a caveat this may not have bothered many people as much as it did me as I just can't stand central heating!
The service was great, all staff very helpful and they gave us free breakfast on two days for the faulty heating - which just about made up for it. The bed and bed linens were very good quality and I slept very well! The staff also offered to swap our room on account of the heating, which I maybe should have accepted, but we had settled in by then.
So, all in all, lovely hotel, we really enjoyed our stay, but at these super high prices it should be perfect. And it wasn't!
I almost gave it four stars but I think the points above given the price rally waarant 6-7/10...!
