Overall it was a comfortable room in a decent location. We were on the top floor and were able to get the room to a comfortable temperature but be aware it’s not a true air conditioning system. I thought the bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size. I liked the little sitting area. There’s not much room to put away clothes. The bathroom is nicely modern and the tub was large and deep. While I’d paid for a canal side room, we were put on the side facing all the construction along the waterfront near the train station. They said I’d requested a smoking room, which I’m quite sure I had not, so this was a compromise to get a room instead of waiting. There is a LOT of construction in this area – in front of the train station and to the east toward the hotel. I was too lazy to move once we got settled in. There didn’t seem to be any noise that bothered us and we are light sleepers. The hotel seemed quiet to me. The included minibar was nice and was refilled daily. The Nespresso machine was a real treat! Finding your way around the hallways is challenging. The 2 computer business center was usually full but was convenient once you got a turn. I was most happy with the fact that the room was comfortable, cool and quiet. The biggest downsides would be the location and all the construction. I don’t require many services from a hotel but I agree with the reviews that state it’s hard to find some help if you need it. Without a true lobby, it doesn’t have a 5 star hotel feel. Overall, I would recommend only if you can get a good rate. I looked at the rack rate listing in the room and it was something like €459. That would be insane. I’d if you can get it for under €170 then it would be ok. If I were to go back to Amsterdam, I'd probably try another hotel but I could still recommend this one with just a few caveats.
