Stayed in 2 rooms with family.
Got the last minute taxi-e from the airport for 25 euros to get to hotel-normal price 45 euros- but cheapest way would be 197 bus to leidseplein square and walk 10-15mins to hotel from there.Also could get train to central station and then tram or taxi from there.
On arrival got a brief rundown of how the hotel works and shown the lobby area where free drinks are available.
Rooms were fine-I was expecting smaller after reading the reviews.Beds were great.Minor housekeeping issue is that when we tried to use the ice bucket there was a small amount of discoloured liquid at the bottom.
Some issue of traffic noise on first floor.
Breakfast was great and nice to have the scrambled eggs made in front of you rather than the congealed ready made stuff you get in the bigger hotels.
No gym in hotel but nice run to Vondel park-takes 5 minutes to run there at my pace.Whole run including full circuit of the park is about 37 minutes.
Location is great-did not need to use the tram or bus.
Staff are friendly and very helpful.
Lovely to relax in the late afternoon in the lobby with free nibbles.Lovely post evening meal to relax in the lobby area too with your included drink or drinks.
Only found out on last day where the stairs were-we thought you use the lift or option of some stairs somewhere to use in an emergency.
Ordered a taxi home and we wanted to save euros and use card for the taxi fare and staff confirmed the taxi took credit cards but driver at airport told us he was not told about us wanting to pay by card and we had to use cash.I suspect the taxi company more at fault here.
Would definitely stay here again.Made a nice change from the impersonal large chains I have recently used.
