Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor about this hotel I had always wanted to stay here but had thought it was a tad expensive for a four star hotel. As my trip this time round was only for 1 night, I decided to give it a go and am so glad that I did. Staying here is like staying in someone's home not a hotel. The people are so welcoming and helpful here. Due to an early morning flight, I arrived before the check in time, so my room wasn't ready but, as well as being able to leave my luggage, I was also invited to use the facilities of the lounge - a hot espresso or two were an excellent start to the day! The hotel adopts an all inclusive approach so that drinks and snacks in the lounge are included in the room price. It was nice to be able to come back from the late morning shopping, check in and dump the shopping, and then have another coffee (or something a bit stronger!) before facing an afternoon of more shopping or sightseeing. The room was comfortable; the use of the mini bar was also included in the rooom price and there were decanters of gin, whisky and brandy in the room as well. My only criticism would be that the wardrobe was on the small size - that didn't matter so much for me especially as it was only an overnight trip but for a longer period, or for 2 people, a bigger wardrobe would hvae been better. The bed was comfortable as was the armchair and footstool. Breakfwast the next day was excellent - a good choice of hot and cold food and a chef o hand to prepare omelettes, panckajes, etc. It was a shame that my trip was such a short one! The hotel is well situated fot shopping and there are plenty of restaurants close by - much appreciated as this particular weekend was exceptionally cold! I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Amsterdam. Although the room price is quite high, the fact that all drinks, snacks, etc. are included makes it not such an expensive stay.
