Nice hotel in short distance from city center. Pro: new and relatively cheap. Good continental breakfast incl. (weekend until 12.00). Quite a/c in room and great power shower. The bed mattresses could be more firmer but instead the pillows are very firm. Large, panoramic windows, possible to slightly open (for those who do not like a/c).
Service very good and attentive. Breakfast self service with dash of personal service from assistants (good job Mohamed). I would suggest to introduce trays and big trolleys for collection (to save time and space). Space of breakfast slightly cramped but manageable.
Good quality of products on breakfast esp. tea and coffee.
Reception team very attentive and helpful (thanks Sylvia for the umbrella-you saved our day).
Tram and metro stops just 200 yards from hotel (multi day pass for all public transport recommended -prices on www. gvb.nl website).
Overall highly recommend for those seeking no frills accommodation in close proximity to Amsterdam City Center.
