“Great base for a weekend in Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

There were some mixed reviews on this hotel, but having opted to give it a go, I am pleased we did! Essentially, I was drawn to the contemporary design and modern new look it has, with the added interest that it is a converted hospital. We took a room only option and there are some great little places to grab breakfast within walking distance.

The room itself was adequately sized, had everything you would need - I would agree with other reviews about the shower and toilet. Not the most private experience and the shower does send water everywhere but you just have to be careful! It's not a reason not to stay! The bed was really comfortable and on day 1 after travelling and exploring was nice to sink into thick crisp white sheets!!

The concierge was unbelievably helpful and really helped us plan our weekend and clearly marked our map with where everything was! Top marks!

Directly outside the hotel you can catch the No9 tram. Pay on board - best value is a €7 day pass. The tram takes you right into the city centre in less than 10 minutes. There is also lovely parks around and the roads really easy to navigate if you just fancy a stroll!

However, I would massively encourage the hire of bikes!! It's what Amsterdam is all about! It's a fun and speedy way to explore and so handy. The bike hire was €16 a day. Some reviews quote this as expensive, but why would you hire a bike in the city centre then pay to get back to the hotel after you drop it off?? Madness!

Overall, it was a modern funky friendly quirky hotel - easily accessible from Schipol by train (2 min walk from station) and a nice location outside of the city centre. We had a great stay and would go back.

Room Tip: We took a room on the top floor, made slightly more interesting as built into the roof.

I stayed recently at this hotel with mum for a few days. We had a very relaxing break and loved the location as it was just outside the city but very easy to get around as the trams were 5 minutes walk. I have to say my first impression of the hotel and reception area were of slight disappointment and would compare more to a 3 star but reception staff were fantastic and so helpful. We had a very comfy and quiet room but this was very dusty especially under the beds. As these were very easy to clean I cannot understand why nothing is done about this especially as other reviewers had also mentioned this. I did notice that the cleaning staff were provided with only a very basic vacuum cleaner which would have made it almost impossible to do a great job. So easy to rectify and replace these with better equipment. There was a supermarket across from the hotel with a fantastic selection of food, which was great. Overall we had a lovely break and thank the staff for looking after us so well. I would also very highly recommend caffe Milo across from the hotel - amazing food and great staff.

The hotel is good, but the location is not good. It is far from the most interesting places, and the area is not safe around. The price they charge for renting a bike is also expensive, and it doesn't make any sense to only rent for the entire day, and since the hotel is far from everything, it seems like they charge it because they know it would be difficult to rent elsewhere without walking on the unsafe neighborhood.
The room is too small, and there is no real door on the bathroom, so you can't be in a double room with a friend you don't have too much intimacy.

Just got back after a 2 night stay, didn't want to leave! Room was lovely, bed was so comfy had a lovely sleep both nights. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We requested to be moved to a room with a balcony, was told it wasn't available until the following day for our last night. This room was also lovely, only minor complaint was that this room didn't have a massive, deep bath like the first one, only a shower but wasn't a major issue. The bathroom is a bit weird as you can see into the bathroom from the bedroom as there is a mirror with window panes next to it so was a bit awkward if you're not a couple. Hotel was absolutely spotless, everywhere was so clean! Decor was a bit much for the eyes to handle but very modern. It felt like we were a bit out of the way from central Amsterdam, which in one way is good as it's nice an quiet in the evening but it can take up to 25mins to get into the center on the number 9 tram (right outside hotel), we also walked it one evening and took about 40mins. Great price on our 2 nights stay and will be coming back to stay very soon

Room Tip: Room with a balcony is nice but the room was colder

Modern funky hotel in a quiet residential area. Room decor was contemporary and unexpectedly designer for the room rate.
Tram stop just the hotel for the number 9 straight into town.
No real atmosphere in the bar/restaurant areas however staff were friendly, attentive and couldn't have been more helpful.
Would certainly go back as the curtains provide a 100% blackout!
Received a room upgrade on arrival. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Just got back after staying two nights. Very clean room, we were upgraded to a junior suite for free which was nice, the room was massive. Comfy bed, clean linen, we had a room facing the rear (305) which was nice and quiet. Bathroom was good but, as mentioned elsewhere, it's a bit weird as you can see through from the bedroom in to the bathroom a little bit through the back of the mirror. Bit weird if you're not a couple, bit kinky if you are. I emailed ahead and asked for a room on the top floor which was kindly provided. I believe that that is also the least noisy floor as you don't hear anyone walking above you.
It's very quick to get in to central Amsterdam from the hotel, there's a tram stop (number 9) right outside the hotel, it takes ten minutes to get to dam square or the central train station (for direct trains to the airport). There's a late off licence across the road and a coffee shop next door if you fancy a spliff (although it didn't look too great). The hotel bar is also nice and although we didn't eat there, the menu looked good and the staff were friendly. It also seemed like a nice safe area if you're coming back late at night.
All in all a top trip and a very well priced, well placed hotel. For the price, I can't fault it!

Room Tip: Go for the third floor if possible and ask to get a rear-facing room (towards the gardens). Room 30...
