Nice, clean boutique hotel in really central location. Good size bedrooms and bathrooms. Breakfast is a little pricey but plenty of other places to eat nearby. Well situated for bars, shopping and restaurants.

The good: -Location is great in central Amsterdam -wifi access is great. The bad: -Rooms are not well equipped and quite cold. It is okay for a business trip as you do not spend much time in the hotel and can do work at night, not the best option for leisure or couple/family.

Everything was great . From the moment we checked in the staff were helpful and courteous. The room was clean & spacious. There were a lot of good eateries & coffee shops around :) . We pretty much walked around everywhere so i guess the location is central as well. Definitely recommended!
