We just returned from a three night stay in this great hotel in Amsterdam. It was myself, wife and two children (7 and 4). We had the family suite.
First the room was big and spacious (Room 121). The main room had a large bed for my wife and I. There was then a second large room with two single beds for the kids that was able to be closed off by two sliding doors. A small sitting area then overlooked the canal and street and gave us great views of life passing by outside. There was planty of room for all four of us, which made for a very enjoyable stay.
It was very cool during our stay, so we always had the windows shut at night, so noise really was not an issue. The only minor complaint I would have is that very bright lights in the courtyard behind the second bedroom. Even with the very large curtains covering the window, the light was still quite evident. Dimming or turning those lights off after a certain time of night would be the only recommendation I might make.
The location could not be beat, and it felt like we were off the tourist track. We were able to walk pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. Vondelpark, Van Gogh Museum, restaurants, boat tours, etc. Two blocks down around the corner is a grocery store and ATM. About 5-10 minutes from there is the Jordann district with lots of great little places to eat and drink. The Anne Frank museum is also in this area. A quick walk over the canal outside the hotel puts you right in the Nine Little Streets area with its various shops.
The hotel staff was great as well. After a long day of travelling the staff was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for food and an ATM. The kids loved petting the dog in the lobby, which was as friendly as can be, and they even were able to feed it some treats. We had a very early checkout (4:15am), and there was no problem arranging a car to pick us up and getting us to the airport at that hour.
We would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again on any future trips we take to Amsterdam.
