I stayed one night at this hotel at the end of February 2013. I was only staying the night prior to taking a flight the following morning. For that reason, I considered staying at a hotel near the airport. Since this airport is a short train ride from Schiphol Airport and a short walk from Centraal Station, I decided to stay here. I am very glad I made that decision.
It is a short walk from Centraal Station, but it is really in the middle of everything. After arriving in the early evening at the hotel, I took a walk to find dinner. The number of restaurants in the area is amazing. The hotel is near a few streets that are only open to pedestrians. These streets typically have several restaurants and stores on them. I really cannot say enough about the location of the hotel. It is truly in the middle of everything that Amsterdam offers (both good and bad). The hotel is not far from boats offering canal rides, museums, and the infamous red light district.
The hotel itself was quite comfortable. The staff was professional and courteous and offered assistance on restaurants or other places to eat. The hotel has its own restaurants, but I like to explore dining outside the hotel setting. My room was nicely decorated and in good physical condition. The room also had a work station where with internet access where I could get some work done. The bathroom has plenty of hot water and nice amenities. The executive lounge has a good selection of coffee, tea, water, and soft drinks as well as fresh fruit. The fitness center has several cardio machines for those wanting to take some time to work out.
My only regret is that I could not spend more time here. I got up early in the morning, checked out, and walked back to the train station to begin my journey home. If I have the opportunity to visit Amsterdam in the future, I would like to stay at this hotel again.
