This hotel is nicely tucked away in the city centre. You can easily walk to Amsterdam Central or the Red Light District within 10-15 minutes. If you don't want to walk from the train station a taxi costs 15 euros. The airport is about 30 minutes away and a taxi costs 43 euros. The front desk will arrange a private taxi for you. There are tram and bus stops near the hotel but you must walk towards the train station to reach them. The transportation system for the trams, buses, etc is called GVS and you can buy a daily unlimited pass for 11 euros. There is a GVS office at the train station. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around the hotel. Most of the restaurants sell Asian cuisine. I highly recommend the "Wok to Walk" near the district. It has great stirfry options. There are also burger, fries, and pizza places around. We did a lot of walking by the hotel and felt completely safe.
The hotel was clean and is completely non-smoking. If you smoke they charge a fee of 200 euros to your card. I liked the fresh smoke free smell of the hotel. They also offer a superior breakfast for 25 euros per person at their restaurant and they have a nice bar in the lobby. I did not use either service but glad it was available.
The gift shop attached to the hotel sells converters, souvenirs, and items you may have left at home for a reasonable price.
Overall I would recommend this hotel!
