Stayed in AMS prior to my London Visit.
Location is great, I would say nearly anything and everything is a 15 minute walk. Close enough where you are walking through the streets with the canals and homes with personality.
Service, first off I arrived at 10 am, not sure what is check in - but a after speaking to the front desk they immediately told me what rooms were available. In addition they disclosed that the 1st floor gets street noise (technically their 1st floor is on the second floor of the building).
I didn't mind the street noise as I am one that hibernates - it was a nice gesture for them to have earplugs in the room.
Breakfast in the morning really hit the spot. All fresh ingredients , not too much or too little.
If you are an early riser with an empty stomach the 7:00 am breakfast start is the best AMS gets. No restaurants open prior to 7.
Overall nice place - I do recommend it. Just keep in mind the website makes the place look hip n chic but that couldn't be any further from the truth. There is tons of dust on those wine bottles and the bar is weak.
Great free coffee in the morning and friendly staff.
