I have stayed three times at this hotel during 2010 and 2011, the location is really what does it for me. Straight out of Central Station, cross the street and into hotel. Watch out for bikes!!
Reception staff are extremely helpful as are concierge services, whose information has proved invaluable with regards directions, museums, sights and restaurants.
This hotel, during my stays there, had a refurbished, thoroughly renovated wing and an original, not refurbished wing. On check-in on our first stay, we were offered a room with a lovely view of the canal. This room was located on the "old" side of building, room was spacious enough, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Although old and somewhat tired, bathroom was clean and "ok". Rates are what you expect from a city centre 4 start deluxe hotel - not cheap.
On second stay, I reminded reception that we had enjoyed our room with a view of the canal and would like a similar one, instead we got a small, poky room with a flight of stairs IN the room and a window looking out onto a grey, dingy, dirty patio. When we asked to be moved as we did not like room, we were moved to a bigger room, again on old side, with a view of a busy street, which was not as good as first room but more acceptable.
On our last stay there, we were automatically given a very new, modern, stylish, spacious room on the refurbished side of hotel, which was lovely and much better value for money than any of the other two rooms but no canal view :(.
Breakfast is very good with the usual selection of cold cuts, fruit, cereal, cooked english, etc.
Location, location, location is everything! Easy access to trains, buses, canals, museums, Anne Frank House, Grasshopper, etc, etc.
Would stay again if guaranteed one of the "nicer" rooms.
