Stayed here for 9 nights over Christmas and new year 2013 / 2014.
Absolutely loved it !
My parents so flew in to stay in this hotel (we came from Dubai & they came from Scotland & we were meeting for Christmas). Their flights were delayed by a day due to the storms in Scotland, and the hotel changed their booking without any problems. We were over the moon ! (Most hotels are money grabbing & don't care, in my experience)
The breakfast was nice. It may not be what everybody wants, but it really worked well for us. Plenty of toast, cheeses, spread etc as well as some Dutch items and even some kosher items, that I'd never tried before so decided to give it a go !!
The staff were awesome. Always friendly and even keen on a joke here and there! (Makes all the difference).
The room was nice & we especially liked the shower - nice and hot and powerful !
My only tiny complaint, if I had to mention one, would be that the heating system really dried out the air in the room, I had slight nose bleeds due to the air dryness.
The hotel is on the metro line 5 and 51, both of which take about 15 minutes to get into Amsterdam Central. Cost €7 a day each for unlimited travel - which also got us back to the airport for our flight home, saving us about 50 euro !
I'd rate the hotel about a 8.5-9 / 10. Other hotels could learn a thing or two from this hotel.
