First of all, for us we found the Hotel de Hallen quite difficult to find on first arrival! It would have been useful if the hotel would post directions on their website :)
Anyway, once we found it we were very impressed with our welcome and the hotel as a whole :) The design and decor is very stylish!
We arrived a little early to check in but the lady on reception gave us an excellent map (which has been our lifeline for the whole trip!) and pointed out all the areas of interest in Amsterdam, which was very helpful for first timers like us. When we got back later on, our luggage had already been delivered to our room :)
We really enjoyed our stay, our room was very comfortable and the staff very helpful :) The only slight issue we had was that our room didn't have an outside window so was quite dark, so if that is a problem for you I would check your room allocation before you arrive, I imagine rooms with windows maybe slightly more expensive?
Overall a great hotel which was well worth finding! Thank you for a lovely stay :)
