As often the case the website made the hotel look somewhat better than it was in reality.Our first room was in the hotel annex up some very difficult twisting stairs which i believe can be common in Amsterdam .The bathroom was minute and a sort of box added into the room and the beds were really lumpy although the room was quite spacious.We asked to change to a room in the main hotel ofwhich the staff were very compliant about .We were first offered a room much worse where the space had been dissected longways to make a bathroom and was really awful.The third room was better with a bay window and proper room for a bathroom but no bath just a wet room sort of shower but better beds.That night we came in to have a shower and the hose was broken meaning you had to hold it together to make it work!We told reception who didnt have it fixed by the next night but a very helpful night staff member was able to sort it out for us. Each room is supposed to be linked to a philosopher ,our 3rd room was the Confucius room and the only book that was in English in there was a Mills and Boon which was pretty funny...we used it to prop open the window.Breakfast is not included and costs 15E which it is not worth you can get a much deal at the many cafes a short walk away.But Amsterdam is wonderful and we had a great time.
