“very new and clean and huge rooms with really low price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

It is really good hotel with this best price. The room was huge for an Amsterdam city hotel. I will stay in this hotel if they continue offer this price. It is close the city center with clean and cozy decoreted rooms. I stayed a lot of Amsterdam hotels in different areaz but this is the best one..

Lovely hotel with very new feel. Nice pool; ok service; EXCELLENT breakfast. Too far from city for my liking (or at least the local tram stop)- it cost €15 to get a taxi to the hotel from Liedensplein on Friday night! If you needed to stay near the airport or the main motorways ( or didn't need to be central) this is a brilliant choic. Of hotel.

we stayed in this hotel last weekend and had a great time! The location may not be very central but the city centre is easily accesible by tram and travelling on public transport adds to the tourist experience!

The hotel itself is beautiful, very stylish and elegant and definately matches up to the photos. The room is spacious enough for two people and the beds are comfortable. I can understand people being wary of the window into the bathroom/shower though, however you soon get used to it!

I would recommend visiting the SKY BAR for cocktails and a 10 Storey View, the cocktails are lovely if not exactly cheap! We had breakfast and bar snacks in the hotel and the food is great.

The staff are courteous and helpful, they recommended places to go and eat in town, and also gave us tram number and directions. We also made a visit to the Salon for beauty treatments and the Beauty Therapist was friendly, chatty and the treatments were excellent!

On the downside, there was a fire alarm at 1.30am on the last night of our stay. I would not call the way the hotel staff dealt with this professional. We ended up waiting outside the hotel until 4am, the fire service was not called and no explanation was given.

however, I would call this the only negative part of our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam, we got a fantastic last minute deal at Expedia and it was well worth the money. If you don't mind not being right in the city centre, but would like a comfortable, elegant experience, this may be the hotel for you!

Location:
The hotel is located to the South-West of the city centre - but still within the city. By London standards, it is still very central: the tram ride takes about 10-15 minutes to get into the centre. The tram stop is Surinameplein, and it's on lines 1 or 17. #1 is the fastest route. It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the hotel to Surinameplein.

Rooms:
The hotel is entirely non-smoking, which is brilliant in a country like the Nertherlands. The rooms are spotlessly clean and modern. The bed is very comfortable, and the air conditioning works well and quietly.

Bathroom:
The bathroom is modern, and has a bath and a separate shower area. The dividing door between the bathroom and the main room is made of sliding glass - so it's fine if two people are sharing who are intimately acquainted, but it would be less suitable for two friends on holiday. The toilet is entirely separate, and has a solid door.

Check-in:
We arrived early in the morning - around 09:30 - and since the hotel was not full they did not make any issue, or even mention the fact that we had arrived several hours early. Check-in was friendly and efficient, and the room was ready immediately.

Breakfast:
There is a fair selection for the breakfast, but it is not excellent. There is no egg/omelette station, but there is a supply of scrambled and boiled eggs. There is fresh fruit, cereal, bread and cold cuts. There are also fried products, including low-quality sausages.

Facilities:
The advertised free wi-fi throughout the hotel was not working. The network could be found, but when a connection was attempted it failed every time within the rooms - and only in the lobby it was possible to connect. Even then, the connection was very unstable, and standing next to the router it still failed every time a few seconds after connecting.

There were two computers in the lobby with internet access which were free to use for guests.

The swimming pool is free for guests to use, but the sauna and steam room are not. The pool area had a rule whereby guests were not allowed to walk in outdoor shoes - and the area outside the door to the pool had a rule wherey guests were not allowed to walk in bare feet. A normal policy, yes - but the problem is that the changing rooms are entirely separate, with no direct access from the changing room to the pool. This meant that - in order to comply with their regulations - after using the pool it was necessary to stand precisely on the threshold of the door between the pool area and the dry reception area, and hop on one leg with the door open while drying the other foot with a towel in order to change into one's shoes. No other combination of action or location would have satisfied them that we complied with their rules. This needs to be reviewed!

General comments:
The hotel is very nice, but it is understaffed. During breakfast, there were no clean tables available - and the reason was because there was only one girl serving, whose job it was to book in guests, clean tables and re-set them - among other things. We had to clear a table ourselves and then look for hard-to-find clean cutlery. The girl was rushed off her feet: not her fault, it's just that they needed more staff.

Overall:
We paid under £100 per night for two people, and compared with the advertised rack rate of €245 per night it was great value. The important things were excellent: rooms and cleanliness. Therefore I would stay here again.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the hotel for six days and were very happy with the hotel. The hotel itself was worth the money. I have been in many five star hotels that have been much worse.

The hotel was located about 4-5km from the Central station. There are two trams that go straight to there in about 20minutes. Lelyaan station with metro, train and tramstops is also near so it is easy to trip from airport and back. It is easy to get everywhere from there. So we quite liked it compared to hotels in the city center. There are also two big parks close, the Rembrant park and the Vonderpark.

The rooms were just like in the pictures. They were modern, clean and nice to stay. The beds were excelent. There were a few problems too, parts of the room were not that well built but those were minor details.

Service was excelent for us, but service did depend on the person. The Skyy bar was nice, a bit empty always but stil nice place to go and get a few drinks.

The hotel is worth your money atleast for now because they are building more stuff around it so I think that when it is finished it´s prices will go up.

I agree with all the positive comments regarding this hotel - it was extremely comfortable. Staff very courteous and helpful- and they let us check in by 11am which was fantastic!

The only downside was that they are so close to the airport but have no shuttles - they said they are working on it so hopefully soon

The tram/bus/metro [Lelylaan] is at least a 10 min walk away so bear that in mind

There is just a shower, no bath but thats ok for a short stay. The glass bathroom door is fine, makes no difference!

The mini fridge is really a little drawer, but for 2 days you can manage. We didnt have the breakfast (17 euros), and had tea in our room- but apparently the room service for breakfast is free I think -so a nice treat!

They had great offers at the wellness centre- massages and back scrubs for 40 euros etc, so worth a try

Lastly, regarding location - it is just on the ring around Amsterdam, and definitley not in city centre. But city centre is 15 mins away on tram and really wasnt an issue for us.
We got this hotel on an amazing special (£100/night) and had no issue comprimising a little on location - but really 15 mins is no biggie and we spent all day out anyway!

Best part was FREE wifi!

lovely hotel, very comfortable. just one issue - i dont really need an audience when I am having a bath....!! glass doors are a bad idea! as is the window through to the bathroom...the tram is not too far from the hotel, but its not an area that i would want to walk alone at night. On the last day i took the tram to the station to go to the airport, only to find that it was taped off with plastic police type tape!! had to take two shuttle buses to get to the airport...
