I stayed at this hotel as a weekend city break. Although located outside the inner city, the hotel is very close to all the museum's and in a residential part of the town. I found the hotel very comfortable and the staff very helpful. They had lots of useful ideas about where to eat and what to do. The rooms were very comfortable if a little compact. It was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have stayed in. It was also great to stay somewhere that has FREE fast internet. It is about a 15-20 minute walk into the city or less than 5 minutes on the trams which run right outside the door. It is also very close to the Albert Cuypstraat Market as well as some nice bakeries. WE didn't try the hotel restaurant but one of the other guests said it was very good. If you want somewhere a bit more up market in Amsterdam then this is so much better than one of the chain hotel's.
