There aren't many hotels in Amsterdam that don't have a bus or a tram going past the front door. The Nh Musica doesn't have either and the only thing that lets this hotel down is its truly dreadful location. It sits in the middle of what looks like an estate of council housing, and if I were in such a location in London, I think I might fear for my life.
However once you step through the doors you get into what is a rather chic minimalist hotel. The rooms though basic, are stylish and tasteful. The bathrooms are elegant (nasty toiletries though).
I had a problem with the air conditioning in the 1st Room that was in and after being visited by a chambermaid who wasn't keen on helping, one of the reception staff came up to the room and move me to a room next door with the minimum of fuss and the maximum care and attention.
Breakfast is not brilliant and the staff serving breakfast really did have an attitude problem. Breakfast itself was mainly of the continental variety, although you could have omelettes and pancakes made for you- a facility that had ended by 9:30 AM when I came down to breakfast.
All in all a nice hotel, much much better than the NH Carlton in the middle of town, but I wouldn't have thought it was a great location for anybody wanting to do sightseeing in Amsterdam given that it's a 30 minute tram ride into the centre and a walk from the hotel to find the tram in the 1st place.
It is convenient for the financial centres of Amsterdam Zuid and as such represents a good place to stay for people working there.
