Let's start with the bad :
Room could've been a tad warmer.
Remote wasn't as quick and responsive as I would've liked.
Don't think it was mentioned that city tax was going to be added, although still good value and should've expected it.
The good, however far outweighed the bad. Me and my girlfriend stayed here in the first week of Feb 2013 for 2 nights. From schipol airport, there was a 5 min train journey to Zuid station. The hotel is just around the corner from here. And dam central a further 10-15 tram journey, which are frequent and value for money as you can get an unlimited tram/bus/train pass for 48 hours for 12 euros. Some people might see the fact that it's not in dam central as a drawback, but we enjoyed the journey on the tram as we got to see much more of Amsterdam.
Now to the hotel... It was very quirky. Sleek and modern was the atmosphere. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. Ask one of them to give you a map and point out places to go and things to see. One place recommended to us was our favourite place to chill throughout the stay. The lobby area had food, televisions and sofas, study/creative areas and a computer section with iMacs which we used.
The room was compact. The toilet and shower pods were an interesting concept. The 2 different shower gels (one for am and pm) smelt amazing. I regret not buying them at the reception. There wasn't much storage, but was not necessary for a short stay. However the bed made us feel like dwarfs as it was a spacious 2m x 2m with warm covers. There are free movies on demand, of which 2 we watched. The remote pretty much dictated the room functions, mood lighting which was very cool, tv, temperature and the blinds. Would love one of these in my future home but just a bit more responsive.
Overall I would say this is a perfect short stop headrest for couples, putting into consideration the price and ambience etc. Would take a great offer in another hotel to stop me staying here again.
