I have to say our first impression of the hotel was not great. The entry, reception and hallways all needed to be vacuumed (we arrived at 4 PM). Then, as I had read on other reviews about travelers checking in and being given the room in the "basement" - wouldn't you know it happened to us too! The room is dark and mostly underground - NOT a place we wanted to spend 3 nights! So once we saw the room, I went back up to reception and told them we wouldn't stay there. There was no other A/C room available for us that night, but they transferred us to another room, which was comfortable for the night as it had been a cool day (and gave us two free breakfasts to make up for it after I asked them to do so). The next two nights, we had a charming room on the third floor. Very quiet, nice decor, clean. One of the twin beds was not too comfortable to sleep on (too saggy), but the linens were nice. Best things about this hotel are the breakfasts (very nice buffet) and the location. Its just outside of all the hustle and bustle, very close to Vondelpark and many really cool neighborhoods. The front desk staff are all very helpful, providing good advice about what to see and do. Would we stay there again - probably because we now know it and the area.
