The Dorint has nice rooms but the tv is of stone age era i.e. not a flat panel/screen. The hotel has a 24 hour pub/restaurant which is very convenient especially with no shops or eateries in the vicinity. The staff were very cordial and helpful. A little out of the city and not too close to the airport either but certainly convenient to travel to with the half hourly hotel coach service to and from the Schipol Airport, which also has railway connectivity that leads directly to the Amsterdam Centraal station. The location or distance is not any concern once you know the right transport mode to choose of.
