We were really pleased when we arrived. Our room was lovely, the bathroom was very modern with a large shower and heated floor and the bed was so comfortable! Rooms are pretty close together and we did occasionally hear people in the rooms either side of us. On the first night we were woken up at 5am by people checking into the room next door (one of them was shouting). We called reception who were apologetic and they must have told them to be quiet as we didn't hear anything else after that! Amsterdam is so compact that you're never very far from anywhere and we really liked the hotel's location. It's on a very trendy street with loads of bars, shops and eating places and in our opinion this is much better than staying right in the centre. There are tram stops on the street if you don't want to walk but we enjoyed wandering everywhere and discovering new places along the way! The hotel staff were always friendly and helpful and we'll definitely stay here again when we return to Amsterdam!
