Stayed here for just 1 night.
Check-in: very quick & polite
Room: I booked a comfort room, and was pleasantly surprised with the room: large, modern, welcoming. 2 single beds pushed together, but as I was travelling alone this did not bother me.
Nice bathroom, loved the shower! Very clean bathroom :-) Also good coffee in the room (nespresso maker).
I did encounter an electricity problem.
I tried to switch on a big standing lamp by pushing the light switch. As a result, no more electricity in my room at all. Problem was that that light switch was on a cable that was cut through half way... a bit of a hazard in my humble opinion.
I called reception and literally within 3 minutes it was fixed and a technician came to check in the room if all was okay. So, well done. He did leave the faulty wire, which I found a bit odd.
Breakfast: large buffet, with plenty of good quality choice. I enjoyed it a lot, ate enough to keep me going all day! Not cheap at 15€ but worth it.
Location: Hmm... I travelled by car and the hotel is just off the highway, very easy to find! Payed 17€ for parking (parked for 25 hours, flat rate of 15€ per day then 2€ per every extra hour to max 15€). Upon leaving the hotel, you're on the highway in 2 minutes, very convenient!
Travelling to the centre is quite easy, depending on where you want to go: Dam, 2 trams, Leidseplein, 1 tram. It does take about 20 mins and a ticket costs 2,80€.
On the first night it was cold and raining which makes waiting for the tram after hours of walking a bit of a pain... The next day it was sunny, cold but beautiful and this seemed just a bit easier. In the cold winter days this is not the most convenient location but it was alright.
Staff: friendly & professional.
They dealt with the electricity problem very quickly.
I went down to complain about a group of very rowdy men partying in the room across mine and they took care of it.
Would I stay again? In spring/summer time, yes without hesitation. Cold winter days... not so sure, however if travelling by car again then yes without a doubt!
The hotel made my stay in Amsterdam even nicer :-)
