We spent 3 nights at the hotel from the 17th-20th December and had a fantastic stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful from the moment we entered the hotel; marking the sites, shopping and food areas on a city map for us.
We stayed in a Splendid City Room and was one of the largest rooms we stayed in during our 5 week trip. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable (this coming from someone who often travels with her own pillow!). We did find the room temperature a little hot and had some difficulty working the heating/air conditioning system in the room; but this was only an issue for 1 of the 3 nights of our stay. We had a front room which was mostly quiet, however morning traffic noises could be heard from about 5.30/6.00. The bathroom was also a great size with a very large shower with fantastic shower head and great hairdryer! The rooms also offered complimentary wi-fi, Nespresso machine and bottles of water which were replaced daily.
The hotel itself was in good condition and was being repainted during our stay. The lift was a good size, but we often found it slow in reaching our room and took the stairs rather than waiting on a few occasions. On one day during our stay the lobby seemed to smell of sewerage and we found the hallway outside our room also had a smell and housekeeping had left the windows in our room open. Luckily the smell did not carry into our rooms.
The location of this hotel was absolutely perfect! It was within walking distance of Dam square, Anne Frank House and Central station. The attractions further away, such as Van Gogh Museum were easily accessed via the Tram with the closest stop about 100m from the hotel.
Would definitely recommend to family and friends in the future!
