Just got back from a 4 day stay in amsterdam and this hotel is definitely a good choice to pick! The hotel itself is really easy to get too, just get the 69 bus from the airport and it takes you right outside the hotel. We checked in early evening and check in was quick and easy. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. We were given a map of the city and what trams to take. The hotel lobby is immaculate, likewise with our room. We were given a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel and we found no problems whatsoever- the room itself was spacious, the beds were really comfortable and the shower was great. The rooms come with toiletries; body wash, body cream and shampoo which is easy if you are travelling with just hand luggage. Another bonus is that there is some English TV channels - BBC1 and BBC2. Getting to central Amsterdam is really easy, the tram stop is right outside the hotel and it takes about 20 minutes , you can either take the 7 to Leidesplein which is good for shopping or the 14 to Dam which takes you to areas such as Anne Franks house and the red light district. There is a local supermarket at the end of the street which is good if you want to grab some snacks for your room and as the hotel is on the outskirt of the city centre it is a quiet retreat. Overall I would 100% recommend this hotel and would stay again.
