Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel from 7th-11th October 2013. Before we went we was a little aprehensive due to the bad reviews however i would not say it is as bad as some are making out. Yes it is very basic, there are no drink making facilities in the room, but that wasn't too much of an issue but i can see it can be for some who really need a cup of coffee/tea in the morning. We was in the attic room which was rather small but it is ok for a short break. However, there was always fresh towels provided everyday and was always clean and tidy for us when we returned to the room. The bed was a little annoying as it had two single mattress covers over the double mattress and these kept sliding about! Some reviews say "we had to walk all the way through the hotel restaurant to check in" as the desk you check in is also the bar to the restaurant, however, "all the way" is a little over the top, there are about 2/3 rows of tables, it is not a big restaurant and is very rarely busy. The staff were polite, no problems there. We did have a slight problem with the price....beware of city tax!!!!! When we checked in and was told how much we owed (after paying a deposit when we booked) it was much higher than expected as we was not informed of any extra charge whilst booking! We will be enquiring about this as we do not feel city tax should be added when you arrive, especially without being informed of this beforehand. The hotel is in the fashion district and we felt this was a good location. It was quiet at night, a very very short walk to "I amsterdam", Vondel Park and the Cocktail Museum. Approximately 5-10 minutes walk to Leidseplein and approximately 30 minutes walk to the Red Light District but as we had quite nice weather this walk was lovely as the scenery is beautiful. Other than the slight mishap with the price when checking in we had a wonderful trip to Amsterdam, not sure if we would stay in the same hotel again but that is only due to trying a different location and somewhere not as basic.
