I loved this hotel. It was like being in a quiet, peaceful resort, yet having all the wonders of Amsterdam a short tram ride away. My favourite thing about this hotel was the location - absolutely brilliant. You're in a nice, quiet, part of Amsterdam, away from all the hustle and bustle of city centre, yet you can be in the city centre within 15-20 minutes via a scenic route that gives you a good view of city, or even quicker with the metro that's just a 5-minute walk away.
There were lots of other positives too - very nice breakfast - good selection; very friendly and helpful staff; ease of check in and check out; very close proximity to Amstel Park, which even in winter, was a delightful place to be. Angry Birds in the lift - small wonder my kids constantly felt the need to go get ice from the ice machine downstairs.
What I would change - TV (screen's too small; channel selection could be much much better)
Bed - not sufficient support. In particular, one of our beds sagged, which required constant moving around to find a comfortable sleeping position.
In all, my family had a good stay here, and we would definitely recommend this hotel.
