My husband was running the Amsterdam Marathon and this hotel was in a good location for where we wanted to be based. We were also travelling with friends and so thought this hotel would be appeal to all of us!
There is nothing overtly wrong with this hotel however I felt that it was very over priced for the quality being offered. We booked a Premium room but I have to say it is was far from premium. Although it was clean and tidy it was basic at best. Obviously booking a hotel during a city event leads to increased prices however, we felt that the prices here were definitely not good value for money.
Our premium room was very small and dark. The 'eco-friendly' decor and furnishings made the rooms appear very cold and unwelcoming, not my idea of trendy and modern. The bedside tables weren't very useful as they had no drawers and more annoying the shower had no door!
The bed was almost the worst I've ever slept in. There is no real base mattress, it is basically just a bed made of mattress toppers. Very soft and not the most comfortable as they provided very little support. Being in building B we could not hear any street noise however we could easily hear people in the adjacent rooms talking.
I never understand hotels that don't provide tea/coffee making facilities in the room either.
The hotel building itself is rather odd. The Hotel is sandwich between residential buildings so you have private flats looking right on to your room. Also if you are based in tower B you have to get 2 elevators and pass through a corridor that is almost hospital like.
On the plus side there is a welcoming bar area for a late night drink or afternoon coffee, small but comfortable and relaxing. The staff were pleasant but rather inattentive, constantly chatting while serving customers. The free wifi was appreciated and the fact that there is a tram stop directly outside the main entrance was extremely handy.
No one from our group would choose to stay here again, I would definitely book somewhere else.
