Stayed here recently for 3 nights after driving from Calais. Hotel is very easy to find and there is ample parking in the underground car park which is charged at €15 a day. my Mother and Sister shared one room and I shared another with my 17 year old son, we were on the 8th floor.
First impressions are always important and the receptionist was polite and helpful as we were checked in quickly.
The room itself was nice with a 32" flat screen TV on the wall which had loads of British channels. There was a safe and tea/coffee making facilities though storage space was limited. We had a great view of the park and also noticed how quiet it was.
Beds were comfy but the pillows were way too fat for me and I could not use them.
Access to the city centre is easy on the number 13 tram right outside the hotel, just buy a 24hour ticket for €7.50 on board and this will last you all day just make a note of the name of the tram stop for when you return.
We had a short stroll on the first evening looking for somewhere to eat, there aren't that many places around and we ended up in the hotel's restaurant which is expensive. Breakfast in the restaurant is excellent with great choice. In our rooms there was a card which said "Complimentary tea/coffee service on the 17th floor" (picture attached) well we tried this one evening and they did not know what we were talking about and the guy said the only complimentary tea/coffee was at Breakfast...but we paid for breakfast!
All in all though a nice hotel and I would stay again if visiting Amsterdam.
