Lovely modern hotel at a reasonable price. Room was clean and very spaceous with clean towels every day. We were on the ground floor, think the penthouse suites are on the top floor, so no problem with lifts or stairs for us. Staff were very friendly and very helpful with directions and local knowledge of trams, buses museums etc. Only down side was the TV reception was not the best in our room, but as we were only in it to sleep it didnt matter to us.
Five minutes from city centre (Dam Square) on the trams or if you feel like it approx 30 minutes walk.
Only ten minutes walk from Van Gogh museum and ten minutes from Anne Frank House.
Airport is 20 minutes in a Taxi, 36euro.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
