Considerable exterior, fascinating interior design, this one-year old modern hotel is what I'm usually searching for when travelling for business purposes. Yeah, the old grumpy man as me will find same faults: they are clearly underpersonneld, the room often aren’t ready at 4 pm, even though the hotel day starts at 3pm... And you're obliged to wait. The breakfast is not the top: quite poor choice for the class of all the rest, never-ending expectancy for your eggs a la coque (there's only one guy to prepare it for 350 rooms!), tree people in the reception are often unsufficient and guest are queuing, but I'd be back even tomorrow. Really nice, well-designed hotel, large, clean and modern rooms, splendid view over the Amstel river. And it's not so far away from the very centre, and 10 min. walk of the haarlemstraat with its colourful life.
