Placed in Ijdok some reviewers think this is too much of a walk from the centre of Amsterdam but I can assure you it is not. Only a 10 minute walk to Centraal station and 15 minutes to Dam Square. This hotel is in the class of its own with the fact it's probably the newest in Amsterdam built on 2013.
I stayed here in early January with my partner and we felt that the reception staff have a welcoming feel and make sure you well looked after. Our room was on the 9th floor and there is 12 floors in total. All standard rooms with a view are between 9 and 12th floors. I would urge everyone to get a room with a view as you get a lovely view of the city.
The room is of a high standard and can't be faulted at all especially for a good price. The bed is very large and comfy, the tv is LG 37inch flat screen with a wide array of English and Dutch channels. The decor is very stylish and the bathroom has the best shower I've ever used.
In conclusion this hotel is of a high standard and if you are thinking of staying in Amsterdam and you are looking for a stylish modern hotel then choose this hotel and you won't be disappointed.
A few tips:
- if you don't want to walk to the city centre you can catch the no.48 bus going to Borneo Eiland that stops just over the road from the hotel which for €2.80 and ask to get off at Centraal it's only a 3 minute bus journey.
- use the bridge to get to the hotel
- buy a panoramic view room
- visit the lounge/bar
