All hotel rooms in Amsterdam are small due to the way they build so when we got to this hotel we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is a minutes walk from the tram stop (9 and 14 stop here and go to the centraal station, stopping at Rembrandt Square and Dam Square on the way) although it's not too far to walk. There is a park situated next to the hotel which I'm sure would be a lovely spot in the summer and you are opposite a zoo which was a surprise seeing Flamingos in Jan lol. From mid Dec to mid Jan there is the festival of lights which includes lots of lit up buildings and light art installations all over the city which made it very beautiful and I was told this will happen every year from now. Also there was about 100 log cabins lining the main road from the station to Dam square selling foods and sweets, hot chocolate, beer and many other interesting products and on the other side of the square is a hole in the wall pizza slice shop that sells the best pizza I've ever tasted :) We also found a little restaurant off the beaten track called Fred's where Steve the Waiter made us feel very welcome as well as serving a lovely steak meal. The hotel has breakfast included and the was a huge selection and you can go up a serve yourself again and again there is definitely something for everyone. The room was clean but there were some hairs in the bathroom but it must have been a 1 off as when we told the staff it was dealt with immediately. If you are going there in the winter months it can get very very cold and although there was central heating in the room I found I had to wear my pj trousers and a sweatshirt so pack accordingly. Bed was very comfortable.
