Got to the hotel by taking one of the trains directly from the airport. I think it was only 2 or 3 stops away from the airport. It's a large modern looking hotel next to Holiday Inn. Once we got inside,we were so surprise on how modern and clean the entire place looked. The lobby furniture were modern looking and tasteful arranged, there's even iMac computers in the lobby for you to use free of charge. They also let you print free of charge. Every front receptionist we have encountered from check-in to asking for directions to asking about attractions has been very helpful. Props to their service staff.
The room is compact and clean, very basic looking furniture, makes me feel like I am at an Ikea showroom. Space was ample and we slept well, so no complaints about the room. I later discovered they didn't have a pool, which came a surprise considering the size of the hotel, that might be a bummer for some people. There's free wifi, that's pretty important to me.
The hotel is fairly centrally located and very convenient to the 4 tram line which takes you to most of the attractions and to the city center. It departs about every 10 minutes. We use the trams everywhere we go in Amsterdam. Buy the unlimited pass.
Besides the proximity to center city, my other favorite part of the hotel is the breakfast. Must get breakfast in your package. It has a large spread including fresh juices, different kinds of cereals, salad bar, cold cuts, fresh omelets, hot buffet and bread and pastries. Luckily, it was included in my hotel package, but I would have pay to eat breakfast there. Also had dinner there at the restaurant, they offer Western/Eastern menu. Boyfriend ordered from the Eastern menu while I ordered from the Western menu. We were unimpressed with dinner and especially unimpressed with the price.
