We have just returned from a one night stay and have no complaints whatsoever. Reception staff were very friendly and on check in we were upgraded to a room on the 14th floor with spectacular views.The room was lovely with a king size bed and plenty of hanging space once we had found it behind the bed, we also had an ironing board and iron which was a bonus. The tea and coffee making facilities were handy although after reading previous comments I did take my own cups as the ones provided are paper. We travelled by ferry from Hull and the coach from Rotterdam dropped us off near Central Station, we only had to wait five minutes for a tram (number 13) and we were in the hotel within 15 minutes. The tram stop is only 2 minutes from the hotel. We bought a 24 hour pass on the tram which can be used on the trams, buses and metro. We only had one drink in the hotel bar on the 17th floor as the prices were quite high but it was worth it for the view and my husband was happy because they have a separate smoking room, not always available in hotels. We spent most of our two days in the city and found prices hadn't changed much since our last visit although they are a bit higher than the UK. We had a meal in an Italian restaurant just off Rembrandtsplein, two starters, two pastas and a litre of house red for just over 50 Euros which wasn't too bad. Breakfast in the hotel was very good, selection of cereals, fresh fruit & yogurt, scrambled & boiled eggs, sausages and mushrooms and also the continental choice of meats and cheeses all topped off with pancakes and maple syrup. A very enjoyable stay and we would certainly use the hotel again.
