We stayed one night in Amsterdam and wanted convenient access to the city, the port (coming off a cruise) and the airport. We chose this hotel based on these factors and the good price. It was less than 5 min train ride to Amsterdam Central and less than 10 to the airport. Very convenient! We dropped our luggage off to be securely kept there as we arrived at 9 am (they had a locked room and gave us luggage tags, made us feel safe leaving it there). We went in to the city, walked around, came back in the afternoon, laid down for a bit and went back for dinner. It was very easy. My one complaint was the wake up calls. We had to be up at 7 AM. The wake up via the phone system wouldn't go through. I asked the front desk and they said they would put it through manually and didn't seem suprised that it wasn't working. I was very hesitant about this and we even called back to confirm the wake up call before going to bed. I slept horribly because I was stressed about over sleeping and missing our flight. Not surprisingly, we never received a wake up call, but fortunately, we woke up in time. I would stay there again, but have a back up alarm clock ready...
