My husband just had a glorious 5 evenings in Amsterdam, and I am so glad I changed our hotel at the last minute to stay here (after researching all the top hotels in Amsterdam). We loved the decor: funky and fun, with a nod to the history of Amsterdam. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful - which we welcomed as we navigated our first trip in AMS. The room was weird but we are not modest: couples who are may not like the sink in the main room. There is a curtain, but you are in the main room (there is a separate room with a door for the toilet). There is a huge walk-in closet that fits all your luggage, clothing, etc, so the room is not cluttered. Also: the room was perfectly soundproofed: the windows must be double glazed because I am a light sleeper and I didn't hear a thing (plus the courtyard is so quiet). I didn't even hear the other rooms' doors being slammed at 7am when people leave to get their flights home, like I usually do! We had amazingly uninterrupted sleep, which is something I don't always get when travelling. The staff sent us gorgeous roses and a tin of stroupwaffels for our anniversary - what a treat.
The best part of this hotel is the location. The Jordaan is the most charming and fashionable neighborhood in AMS: there are shops all along the 'Nine Streets', you are close to everything (alhtough AMS is so small, no matter where you are you are close to everything!). But: some of the city center hotels are in a sort-of seedy location. The Andaz is in an amazing location, totally quiet, and with luxurious environment. The bed is king size, with upscale linens, and the shower is a huge walk-in style with the best fixtures and design. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
PS- we were there when it was cool out: around 60-70F, so we did not experience the problems with the AC like I just read about - I hope they fix this problem so we can return in warm weather =)
