This hotel is next door to the cruise ship docks in Amsterdam so if you are flying in the day before, it is a great place to stay. Not too much in the immediate vicinity but the tram takes you to the nearby downtown area. Location is on the water and if you are lucky you get a room overlooking the docks. We got to watch our boat come in and start the loading process. Club room upgrade was worth it for us. We were able to check in early (may have been luck) and get some drinks in the late morning. Later afternoon snacks and wine/beer were very nice. Rooms are nicely laid out. All in all, a place we will return to if we are cruising out of Amsterdam again.
