Now in our second night here.
Do not understand the recent bad reviews.
The experience from the word go has been excellent.
Front desk staff were great, we arrived mid morning and were able to go to a room immediately.
Our room is wuite big, nice and airy, in the centre of the hotel, so although there is no view it is lovely and quiet. 2 big windows overlooking an inner air space.
Bed is comfortable, only downside is that there is only one pillow.
Bathroom has a bath with a shower as well.
Outside bar overlooking the fountain is pretty, bar service is good and friendly.
Breakfast in the main dining room was good this morning.
Great location for sightseeing, circular tour bus stop is right outside the hotel.
Vondel park is a 5 minute walk away.
Canal boat trip stop is right outside as well.
Heineken experience is about 15 minutes walk away, Rijks Museum is about 10 minutes walk.
We found that the hotel is close to 2 of the best restaurants in Amsterdam as well.
Overall impression is that this is an excellent hotel, nicely away from the major crowds in the cantre of Amsterdam, but is close enough.
