This is a beautiful hotel in a fabulous area of Amsterdam - Jordaan. I'll list below the pros and cons of the hotel:-
+ Staff - front office manager was exceptional - helpful, friendly with some spot on restaurant recommendations - also another of the Asian staff was great. Congratulations on friendly and efficient service.
+ Ambience/design - it's a beautiful property with old paintings on the walls - a superb blend of retaining a 17th century townhouse and modern clean lines. The dining room is stunning.
+ Garden - one of the most beautiful hotel gardens in Amsterdam? So peaceful and relaxing to return after the hustle and bustle of the city. It is well designed and scores high on the 'zen' factor.
+ Location - you are in one of the most beautiful parts of Amsterdam, a stone's throw from Anne Frank's house and other interesting attractions.
-Rooms - small is the name of the game in Amsterdam which is fair enough, but there is a major design flaw in the composition of the room we stayed in. The toilet/restroom was within the actual room and not soundproofed! This is just unacceptable for a four star hotel and very unusual. They should take note of nearby Toren's rooms to see how they do it. Have small rooms but you do need to separate the bathroom and toilet areas - this is essential.
-Breakfast - it is very good overall, but no cooked omelettes or other items means that it isn't that great on variety. The cheeses and cold meats are very good though. Again, having stayed at The Toren, it wins here too.
Overall, we really enjoyed the warm hospitable stay at this great hotel. The garden is an oasis and the location is pretty much unbeatable. The only thing that prevents me from giving five stars is the toilet in room and the lack of hot breakfast.
