Stayed for a week as a birthday treat and to catch a gig at the Melksweg - got a fantastic deal on this hotel with breakfast included which was a great bonus. Excellent location walking distance to the museum quarter where Van Gogh Museum is. Just across from VG is the best museum in the world (probably) Bols Museum (the famous cocktail ingredient) colourful and fun with free cocktails and shots at the end - brilliant at 4pm! Had a canal side view in a quiet location but easy to walk into town - Boom Chicago is worth a visit if you get chance. Hotel was comfortable and a good size room although not much storage. We were moved into the smoking wing after the first night as they'd not been available on our first night despite booking. All fine though but smoking wing only appeared to be accessible by lift - we found this out when we were shut out of the hotel in an attempt to save electricity by using stairs - actually a fire escape! Helpful staff on fag break fortunately snuck us back in. Hotel caters for airline staff which was fine and meant amazing array at breakfast, anything you could possibly imagine wanting at that time was provided and extra late lunch on Sunday (open til 12!) Didn't bother with the restaurant as the bar man advised we just heat it up in the microwave same as room service, he seemed more bothered about chatting to the drinkers.... reception staff were fantastic though and very helpful. All in all had an amazing holiday, good friendly staff and the best breakfasts ever! Would definitely stay there again.
