I was reluctant to book this hotel as I am not very fond of these concept hotels, I like my hotels old fashioned and I like my service (Im 24 to refute an earlier review), but I was on a business trip with others so I lost the hotel vote.
The hotel is quite away from the city center, but that was ideal for us as our business was near the airport anyways, although we did eventually go to the center (roughly 25 minutes by taxi). Upon arrival to the hotel we were met by a very jovial individual who asked us if we needed any assistance to check in ourselves, he was very helpful. The check process was as easy as can be, almost too easy. Regardless, we made our way to our rooms in a strange two-doored elevator which would confuse most people as both doors can be opened on any floor.
When I got to my room I was so surprised, it seemed like I was living a moment from an comic magazine illustration about Captain Kirk's ideal hotel. There were two amusing colorful space-pod-like structures in a narrow room. One was a toilet and the other was the shower, Just behind the shower structure was a square like double bed. The entire room can be controlled through the remote control (TV, shutters, AC, alarm, etc), and for me this made the experience pretty awesome, turned an average experience to something pretty interesting.
The alarm woke me up the next day, opened the shutters and played some uber chill music, couldnt have possibly asked for more. The most striking thing about this room was the Japanese style compactness, feels like a room in a modern Tokyo apartment.
Breakfast was below average, pretty basic, but it was the room that made all the difference here! Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try out a new experience, especially if they've been to Amsterdam before and are not too fussed about stayed right in the heart of the capital.
