Seriously, the bed is so comfy in this place! I was enveloped in a cloud like envelope of bedroom perfection! I had such a good sleep in the bed!
Which is pretty amazing given that the rooms at the front of the hotel on friday night at least had a lot of ambient street noise in them (tram, music, people laughing and shouting etc) so if they ever refurbish better windows (double glazed would be a good start) and sound proofing should be on the list. But other than this the hotel is great.
A glass of prosecco on check in was a nice touch, the check in staff also took the time to explain the city and provide a map showing some must visit places. We also had a look on trip advisor of where to eat in the local area and were wary of Amsterdam's some what poor culinary reputation - pricey and average is the order of the day in most places.
Well, look no further than the Italian opposite - Monte Verde. Amazing value and great food.
The hotel restaurant also looked very nice, but we didn't have time to sample it for dinner or breakfast, also looked like standard 4* hotel price.
The hotel is nicely decorated, but the finish is tarting to wear a bit, like the seals round baths etc - not enough to dent the impression of the stay or be a problem - but something that shouldn't be noticed by guest - perhaps they need a rolling room refurb / maintenance programme.
Shower is excellent! Hot and gushing. Lovely!
Great place to stay, priced for the weekend, but amazing value in the week. great location with lots of nice local amenities and not too far from the town centre, a short tram ride or walk away.
