After searching TA for a place to stay for a short break in Amsterdam, there was really no question of where to stay. After walking the short distance form Centraal Station we were greeted by Abbey who swiftly checked us in and carried our bag to the second floor up the steep and winding staircase. Once in the room we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room and its decor. The minibar was stocked and we were instructed to help ourselves. After a look at the map that Abbey had given us we headed out.
After an excellent nights sleep we went down for breakfast and we were shown around the buffet breakfast and invited to help ourselves. This consisted of fresh warm bread, a selection of meats and cheeses, juice and fresh ground coffee, yogurt and fresh fruit.
The location of this hotel couldn't be better, there is a supermarket within easy reach and the main tram lines all converge at the station. If your into it, there are numerous "coffee shops" and the red light district, although close, doesn't detract from this hotels position.
There is a reason this hotel is number one!
