- friendly welcome by Waan who was very helpful throughout our stay
- tickets purchased for us on arrival for Rijsmuseum and help with dining reservation
- good central location, very near the trams and Anne Frank museum and canal boat trip
- nice view of garden from our room (number 09)
- reasonable buffet breakfast, good that breakfast and wifi included in room rate
- excellent bed, very comfortable
- we stayed in a "great" room overlooking the garden. This was quite small when you take into account the fact that the bathroom was fully in the room apart from a small claustrophobic toilet. On a romantic weekend away not necessarily a great idea.
- the website gave the impression of the rooms being more historical/Dutch art based but in fact the room was very modern. I would have preferred the decor to have looked more like the rooms on the internet with some more traditional art on the bedroom walls to give a sense of place
- I prefer small toiletries to take away rather than large bottles for use at the hotel
- we made the mistake of driving to Amsterdam and then parking in the World Fashion Centre park and ride. This is a horrible park and ride which is difficult to work out and then a walk (with luggage) to the long tram ride which is not signposted. When you have just driven a long journey this is not what you need on a short break. There is an expensive car park 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel needs to work out a way of helping people who arrive by car either by offering to park the car for them, having a temporary space outside to offload or by giving better advice. Either way it was a stressful start to the our short break.
- only limited room service but hotel near various cafes and restaurants
Overall I would stay at the hotel again.
