Stayed 3 nights 1-7 June 2013.
This is a great hotel if you want away from the central Amsterdam hustle and bustle. We chose it since it is only a couple of stops form the Amsterdam Arena and Ziggo Dome because we were going to Barbra Streisand. The walk from Amstel Station is 3 or 4 minutes to the hotel. The Metro into Amsterdam Centraal is only about 10 minutes, and with one change Schiphol is easy to get to in about 25 minutes if you time it right. The staff are all very helpful, check in was rapid, and staff prioritise customer attention over other duties. The hotel is spotless and rooms comfortable and very clean. Free safe in the room and flat screen TV. I am not sure where the company sees their niche in the market. One way of looking at it is a very big " travel lodge", then there are conference facilities, so that places it in another sector. There were virtually no children in the hotel, which I found strange but it was still only June, There are no shops near the hotel, the nearest being in the Amstel Station, which is a pricy option,so if you like nibbles and some alcohol in your room buy it at a suoermarket. The biggest complaint I have about the hotel, and the reason it is not rated at 5 stars by me is that the Circles Restaurant and Bar, are lit very poorly, There is lots of lighting, but they have it dimmed almost dark and lit by tea lights. I found this unappealing, I had to take the drinks menu out into the mezzanine floor so I could read it, usually the clientelle is boring business types pouring over laptops and talking business, or the odd quiet couple, but no banter or colourful characters worth a chat when we were there, probably due to the expense of the drinks (10 euros for a Martini Rosso and a beer) and the hotel being dormitory for the lights of other attractions. 15 euros for a buffet breakfast inclding eggs and bacon as well as the usual offerings was over the top for us and we preferred to find places in Amsterdam. Wi-fi in the hotel connected easily and is free, and ipads with printing available in the entrance atrium. Bikes for Hire.
I would definately go back there.
