Spent three nights here in mid Sept.
The hotel is app .a 20 minute bus ride from Amsterdam Centraal station .
Situated in a nice residential area just a few minutes from the local bus stop,its well served by public transport links and has a number of cafes and bars in the vicinity.
Althiugh out of town its well worth weighing up the hotel price plus your transport costs against a city centre hotel.
The hotel staff are friendly and after a quick check in we took our room on the 6th floor.Nicely appointed room with good furnishings,bath /shower combo ,nice bathroom with complimentary toileteries and ample wardrobe space .Room had a/c and free wifi with a laptop size safe and tea and coffee making facilities.Cleaning and linen changes were satisfactory.
There is a restaurant on the first floor which serves breakfast ,and a bar which opens at 5.30 .
Didnt have the breakfast as thought it was too expensive so cant comment on the quality.
Staff were friendly and helped us stow our luggage on our final day while we did some last minute touring.We were provided with maps and transport links info on check in which was a great help .
A previous reviewer of this hotel commented on the distance between the reception desk and the lifts .,and from a security point of view this could lead to problems .Its not possible for reception staff to recognise all guests at the best of times ,nor should they be expected to do .
A system of checking room passes might be considered.
Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend it .
Certainly up to the usual Best Western high standard.
