Our family of four spent two nights at this hotel to explore Amsterdam. The location is very convenient-proximity to bus and train services is a definite plus. Downtown is only a couple of stops away and the rooms are relatively quiet. The hotel has a comprehensive, standard buffet breakfast which is a plus as the area does not have any other eating spot in the immediate vicinity.
I found mostly business travelers staying at the hotel, but it would work well for seniors and young families too.
We took the 24 hr City bus and canal tour hop on-hop off pass and it was great decision! I highly recommend it as a few hours in one of Amsterdam's excellent museums leaves a visitor too weary for any other exertion than a relaxing canal boat ride!
Ask the reception for maps and advice and they will guide you to the best times to visit museums, places to shop and dine!
I would definitely return to this hotel again.
