We stayed in the Best room which was basically a canal view suite on the top floor.
First the downsides:
= The room is laid out quite strangely - very long.
= The drain in the shower was clogged, which for some reason I didn't complain about till our stay was half over. The room would fill with water every time we showered. Once I did mention something it was fixed straight away.
= The heating system was changed mid-week and we couldn't figure out how to heat the room properly (and neither could Housekeeping).
= The staff was nice, but far too apologetic. I would prefer something to be done rather than you just apologizing why it isn't being done.
= Very poor dinner service. Very expensive wines, uber fishy fish, and ridiculously undercooked beef. And nothing was even done to adjust the very expensive bill after we complained.
= The hotel is gorgeous!!
= Morning breakfast and restaurant area is perfect to wake up to. We were able to have breakfast brought to us one morning and it was the best.
= Room service was wonderful.
= Super comfy bed and fabulous canal views.
= Great turndown service with little snacks left every few nights.
= Communication with the hotel via email prior to our arrival was always prompt and thorough.
= The hotel is gorgeous!!
We visit Amsterdam every year and I think this is the newest and most modern hotel in the Jordaan. We are already planning on returning this year.
