I stayed here at the Novotel for 12 days recently on a work trip, for which I needed to be available 24 hours a days via WiFi.
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The downstairs, eating and relaxation areas are very new and a bit modern for my liking. There is a lack of armchairs or nice bar area to relax in the evening.
The rooms look a little worn with the bed-linen and towels a little on the thin side. However the room was spotless and the heating worked perfectly (in a cold Amsterdam this was extremely necessary)
The Wifi worked all over the hotel and there were available several Apple Macs which you could use to print off flight information/boarding cards etc for free.
The breakfast was excellent - the best variety of food (and quality) that I have seen for a while in a business hotel.
Unfortunately the restaurant food wasn't as good. After eating here 2 evening I stopped and went out of ordered room server (basic burgers/salads etc which were good).
The best bit of the Novotel was the staff who were without exception extremely friendly and helpful and always smiling, especially in the bar and restaurant. A mix-up over a bar bill was sorted out without fuss.
I wold recommend this hotel for business or a city trip. It's beside the RAI station which has trains in 10 mins to the airport, or 20 mins by tram (#4) or Metro to the centre.
