I have stayed in this Hotel twice now. I wrote a review about the first stay, wich was a disaster, but removed it because my complaints were listened to and i was compensated for the disaster in a very acceptable way. Therefor I gave it another try, and indeed, this time things went smoothly.
The hotel is located perfectly for tourists, next to the central station. Chec in went fine and quick. I booked a city view king suite and got one on the 5th floor. The first time i was a bit higher wich gives the better views to be honest. The room was very clean. Rooms are modern and bussinesslike. They have a nespresso machine and Imacs. The beds sleep very well. Bathroom is very nice with an excellent shower, wich for me is alwas a positive point as there are SO MANY crap showers around. This hotel understood how a bathroom should be.
Breakfast was very good this time, plenty of choice, i loved the figbread. Only downer (being dutch) is the amount of foreign ppl working in the hotel, who do NOT speak dutch at all. I really think one should speak the language of the country they work in.
Another little thing... the coffee at breakfast is terrible....BUT...next to the breakfast area, within the hotel still, is a STARBUCKS. So dont panic and get your coffee there.
I stay in AMsterdam a few times a year for 1-2 nights. I did not make this my 'default' hotel to stay in yet but I would not hesistate booking it again.
I did not find the hotel noisy at all, but I slept at city side. A very good thing worth mentioning is the bicycles the hotel rents out. For a lousy 15 euro's a day (wich is cheap, trust me) you can hire a really high quality city bike for the day. Its the best way to move in the city and I definately recomment you do so! Be aware tho, if you forget to lock the bike and it gets stolen, you have to pay for it!
summing it up: Good hotel, modern, clean, efficient. Nice food, horrible coffee, excellent bicycles!
