Three friends and I stayed in this hotel to celebrate my 50th birthday, the main objective of the trip was to watch Ajax.
PROS; Ultra clean, large rooms with excellent bathrooms and comfy beds, superb transport links (tram/metro 12 minutes to the middle of Amsterdam, train 15 minutes to the airport, 12 Euros for a 48 hour pass, superb). Reception staff polite and welcoming, excellent English spoken, free internet access in the lobby and English football showing in the bar (clean and comfortable)
CONS; Irritating waiter at breakfast trying to take plates before meal finished (had to tell him to go away in the end), English breakfast not really an English breakfast - why do it if you can't do it properly ('Chicken' sausage, terrible crinkly smoked continental style bacon). I did enjoy the other elements to the breakfast though (fruit, cheeses very good, lovely rolls)
If I ever return to Amsterdam I would be happy to stay at this hotel again.
