I stayed for 8 nights in October 2010. The location is safe. As it is autmun, the trees around the hotel was all painted red. Really pretty!
The hotel is a short distance away to Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum. It is also a short walk to Leidseplein, just need to pass by Marriot Hotel and cross the road. From Leidseplein, it is a short tram ride to the central station. Excellent location!
The hotel serves hot breakfast buffet with different breads, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, fruits, etc. Good breakfast to start the day! My room is facing the inner courtyard. It is clean, very peaceful and quiet for a good night sleep.
You can also surf the net, located just next to the breakfast area. There is also a cabinet full of owls figurines. I like to collect owls figuines too. So, I was really happy to see the hotel's collection.
The staff are really helpful. I remembered this lady who I met on my first day. I was jet lagged and having a terrible headache. As my room was not ready, she gave me a paracetamol and told me to rest at the lounge area with hot tea. I really appreciate her very much! She was also the one that arranged for my transport with Connexxion shuttle on my last day to the airport . She was really professional. Her boss should really value her!
If I am in Amsterdam again, I will stay in this hotel again!
