The HNY celebrated twenty years in service this May, and the place is as good, or better, than ever.
Notorious as a location for international architects to stay while on business in R'dam, we found that it's a very pleasant place to stay on holiday, as well. Since we were last here, the watertaxi fleet has been greatly updated with new, larger planing hull boats, so the trip across the Maas takes about a minute. No, really, we timed it.
We were lucky, and had beautiful warm weather, so we enjoyed the outdoor bar in the afternoon, and the warm restaurant in the evening. The only disappointment was the new menu: HNY used to serve a big bucket of Zeeland mussles...as in a real, galvanized steel bucket full of them. They still have the same delicious bivalves, but now serve them in a much too civilized china platter. We didn't much mind though, as some concessions to progress must, one supposes, be made.
In short, HNY is well worth a stay. In fact, if you're interested in visiting Amsterdam, you might even consider staying in Rotterdam and just taking the train for the day up to the big city. It's a lot quieter and calmer down by the Maas.
