We stayed here on our first trip to Amsterdam a few years ago.
The hotel is located within a nice upmarket area and is very close to the famous Vondelpark. It's close to the museum district but quite far from Centraal Station. This didn't bother us. The sun was shining and the walk led us to fall in love with beautiful Amsterdam.
If you don't fancy the walk there is a tram stop close by. We missed the tram one night and took a taxi back to the hotel. It was reasonably priced and we had no problem getting in late at night.
I'll admit to being a little disappointed when I saw the room. The joinery was bad and I was annoyed that Blyss had been described as a boutique hotel. I got over this very quickly. I already knew that small rooms were the norm in Amsterdam and this room was a lot larger than I had expected. Our bed was comfortable and the room provided everything that we needed it to. There was some hustle and bustle outside our window in the morning but what do you expect staying within a city centre? Personally I found it interesting! The garden was stylish and a great place to relax. The hotel definitely needed some work but by the end of our stay we didn't care. Looking back, the staff were typical of many hotel workers in Amsterdam. They did their job and welcomed us in a normal fashion. They weren't rude and they certainly weren't the worst that we've come across.
I would consider staying here again if I needed to be in the area and the price was right.
