Stayed two midweek nights. Only about 90 rooms, so even when full, which it was both nights, one is not inconvenienced. It was busy because Lady Gaga and her people stayed here for some nights whilst performing at Bijlmer's new Ziggo Dome concert hall.
Very impressive building on banks of Amsel River, with easy access in Amsterdam to anywhere you might want to go. Lovely lounge for afternoon tea and cakes plus evening drinks. On basement floor, another bar overlooking the amstel plus Michelin star restaurant
Outside, great for summer is a massive terrace area with seating to eat & drink at.
Had an executive city-view suite, massive windows, two big flatscreen TV's, separate bedroom with massive bathroom, separated bath, toliet, big shower room all behind doors in bathroom. Lovely toiletries, instant copious hotwater, bath filled in no time at all.
Very comfortable bed/pillows, I slept really well, turn down service, convenient light switches and power supply points throughout suite, no problems powering my laptop in bed.
Nice 15metre pool in basement, plus better gym facilities than many hotelsI have stayed at.
Did not have breakfast .. but room service pot of coffee, a large thermos pot , good for 5 coffees , over a couple of hours was superb value at only 7euro's.
Would really recommend trying this hotel , maybe for a special occaision, rooms are nice and big, and in Amsterdam where most hotel rooms are tiny, that really makes a difference.
