I only booked here because there was a large convention in town and I couldn't find a room in Central Amsterdam. Now, I'm glad I stayed here and would gladly stay again.
We arrived at the hotel at 7 AM and, despite the fact that the hotel was very busy, they were able to get us into a room right away. This allowed us to get cleaned up after our long flight and get started with our day. Excellent service !!
The room was spacious and clean and very modern. The bathtub was large and deep and I liked the separate shower stall. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very quiet.
While the location is not in Central Amsterdam, it is really not that far away. Each morning we walked into Amsterdam; a nice 30 minute walk through VondelPark gets you to the VanGogh Museum / RijkMuseum area. In the evening, it took a 10 or 15 minute tram ride followed by a 5 minute walk to get back to the hotel.
The only draw back was that there did not seem to be a lot of eating places near the hotel. We did not try the restaurant in the hotel.
The swimming area is very nice and the fitness facility is well equipped. The people working in the fitness facility are VERY unfriendly however (I believe they work for a different company, not the hotel itself).
The WIFI was free and worked very well.
