We booked this on the day and were worried why this would be available when so much in Amsterdam wasn't but we needn't have been, this hotel is really lovely. It didn't feel like it was just for tourists or business people it was aiming for people who enjoyed staying in hotels. The building itself is stunning and the decor is exceptionally stylish. We stayed on the second floor right up in the eaves. It was a difficult space to convert to a room but it was done with style and although not large because of the high ceiling it felt more spacious than it was. Everyone we encountered was super friendly. The area was great as there were good restaurants, bars and shops locally which meant you didn't have to walk to far in the evening when your feet were already tired. A fantastic overall experience.

Stayed here while on a work trip, the decor of the hotel is stunning and beautifully done. The staff could not have been more helpful and the location is great, especially if you want the museum quarter. I ate in the bar and the food was great with a good mixture of food on the menu. There is a tram stop just outside to take you to other areas of the city

I stayed here for a single night on a business trip to Amsterdam. It is was reasonably priced and not too far from my meetings, hence the reason for picking this location. First impressions are good, the building and grounds seemed well kept and the reception staff were welcoming. I had a room on the third floor, up in the "attic". I understand fully that the hotel is a converted school house and not a new building. Upon entering the room I had to stumble around a bit trying to find the more light switches. It turns out there aren't any... The room in unnecessarily dark and this wasn't helped by the floor lamp being unplugged. I had to crawl around trying to locate the plug and then the socket in the narrow section of the room under the eaves. Surely something for housekeeping to check before they leave the room. I used the shower and for some reason the shower head faces across the width of the bath and not the length, and as the shower curtain is not quite long enough, you can't help but get the floor very wet. The room faced onto the main street and the noise from passing traffic and the trams is quite significant. If you are a light sleeper then I would highly recommend getting a room at the back of the building. I stopped into the bar after eating out with friends and I was almost the only person there. The hotel seems to cater mainly for business meetings and less so for hotel guests as there were very few people about for that size of hotel. Breakfast is a modest affair, you won't go hungry but you also won't hang around very long either. Overall it was a bit of a disappointment and a joyless experience. I wouldn't return unless all the other hotels in the area were booked out.
