I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. We arrived and were shown to a basement room (after being told there were "no other rooms available at all" by the less than understanding receptionist) with no window, with maintenance work being loudly carried out in the hallway outside. After complaning, we were miraculoulsy given a top floor room. Had this suddenly become available within the last, literally, 180 seconds?
The television was in an awful condition, no ironing board was supplied as we had been told and the room had no air-con. We were next to 2 very inconsiderate travellers, who, due to the thin and ultra NON soundproof walls, kept us awake till at least 4am each and every night.
Breakfast was OK, but very basic and in a horrible surrounding. The Vondelpark entrance at the end of the street was fenced off and all in all, my opinion of Amsterdam has been soured by this truly horrific hotel.
