Couples Holiday - 21 and 23 years. The Hotel location is excellent. Travelling round in Amsterdam is not an issue, you can rent bicycles from the Hotel at 15 Euros a day and the tram lines are right across the street to get to the centre which takes minutes.
The Hotel is a beautiful old building with its very own unique style. You can tell they have tried to make it a luxury hotel with the long white drapes everywhere from ceiling to floor and the big chandeliers. The deluxe room which we stayed in is on 2 floors and the bedroom consists of a very large comfortable bed and TV. The bathroom is big and open plan although ours leaked into the living room space but we got a free breakfast for that.
The food is delicious, definitely opt for the breakfast, huge buffet - cooked breakfast, pastries, fruit, buns, cereal, yoghurt, pancakes, juice, tea and coffee.
The only downside was the reception staff. So rude it ruined the whole feel of the hotel. We had one particular girl who was rude, blunt, unobligated to help, wrongly accused us of not listening to her and who seemed to purposefully not advise us of certain things so that we didn't get as much out of the experience. Definitely speak to the Bar Staff over Reception, they are far nicer.
