We had chosen this hotel through the recommendation of a friend that lived nearby. It is in a perfect location for touring the city. You are within walking distance of the museum district and the wonderful Rijksmuseum, which is a must-see. You are also within a 5 minute walk of the nearest tram station and that opens up the rest of the city to you. The location is also wonderful because it is not in the loud and bustling centre of the city but in an extremely well to do and quiet neighbourhood very close to the lovely Vondelpark, which is a beautiful, green area where Amsterdammers go to run, walk their dogs and relax. Like all Amsterdam buildings, you have to be prepared for the stairs in the hotel. The decor was very fresh and new and inviting. The staff looked after us perfectly and were really helpful with ideas for places to eat and things to go and see. They were also able to get us tickets to a couple of the museums on line so that we didn't have to wait in some of the long lines. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were very clean and warm. Normally, the price of the hotel is the biggest thing in your holiday budget but the price here was very reasonable and made the stay even more pleasant. They don't have a hotel restaurant (there are so many restaurants in the neighbourhood already) but they do a nice continental breakfast. We had a magical Christmas break in Amsterdam and will be coming back!
