Just come back from a long weekend in Amsterdam and unfortunately as much as we enjoyed the City, this 'Hotel' didn't help too much!
The staff were fine, lovely chatty bunch - even one of the staff used to live in our hometown so that was nice...no issues here.
We didn't take them up on Breakfast as it was 10 Euro and in my opinion looking at it, not worth that...better to take a trip down the road to find a steak house or local Dutch eaterie.
It was also very clean, neat tidy, good bed...but that's where it ends...it's not a Hotel, just a glorified B&B.
Bad points: A few of these reviews say it is good location, I would say it's a fair trek to Centraal Station or even Dam Square...also some of the taxi drivers didn't know where it was and before you ask, yes we were using the regulated ones with blue licence plates!
The radiators were lovely and warm as it was pretty chilly, but there was no air at all...even when we opened a window - this was dificult in our room as we were bottom floor just behind the smoking area out back...lucky for us, no-one was out there or we wouldn't have been able to open the window. Our room number was 021.
The decor was pretty poor and things were falling to bits. The cupboard wasn't fixed correctly and some wood laminate was peeled off the bedrest. The lamps next to the bed were hitting our heads and also the bed was that close to the wall that the shelf above it caused a headache when we woke up and hit it trying to get up in the morning.
It's a cheap hotel for the money (we got a good deal through Superbreaks) but we won't be going here again. If you do want to be in this area, try the Marriott or Best Western in the same area, I'm sure they will be much better and not too much more of the lolly either.
Our final gripe was thata couple of friends were staying in room 301 and getting to it was a health and safety hazard - we had to go around a spiral staircase where steps were no more than a few centimetres wide...not good!
The rest of the holiday was great and as we were only bedding down for the night it was ok enough to get two stars (I was going to give it one...)
We will be back to Amsterdam, but not to this hotel.
