Check in and check out were smooth and staff were extremely helpful. We had to make a change in our initial booking. Prior to our arrival staff error in not confirming an earlier cancellation and refunding for our initial booking fee, however I am pleased to report that as soon as we alerted the staff they handled this promptly and effectively. I would therefore have confidence in their booking system and would book and stay with them again.
We were a little worried about the distance way from the centre however this proved not to be a problem. Lots of convenient transport options. Train only takes 5 minutes, bus about 20 minutes, and there are trams. Easy quick,access to the airport ( bus or train). You can even hire bicycles from the front of the hotel. Good cycle paths leading into the city. Convenient location for self -organised day trips out of Amsterdam.
The quiet location was very much appreciated. We had a nice view of trees and polders and sporting park beyond the offices. Grocery shopping if required is not convenient if you want to walk to a nearby shop. You are restricted to a small "express' supermarket with closing time at 20.00 hours on weeknights and small convenience store both in nearby station 5-7 minutes walk away. Coffee and takeaway food shops in the station are limited. We simply shopped in the bigger stores in the city centre and hopped on the bus or tram back to the apartment.
Simply furnished, but adequately equipped for short stays. The dishwasher tablets and the bathroom products are provided on arrival however they are not replenished. So you will need to
buy more if you stay more then a day or two.
We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded upon our arrival to one bedroom apartment. Equipped with combined microwave convection oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and a decent range of cooking utensils and crockery.
Wifi was free and worked well. Television was flatscreen SMART TV with a large range of international channels. The SMART TV had a good range of tourism, weather and other typical smart tV options. A small gym and guest laundry are also available. Vending machines in foyer are stocked with light snacks and drinks. Again, only downside really with the apartment was the beds were incredibly soft and the lack of proximity of a decent grocery store. All up a pleasant value stay in Amsterdam.
