Our third stay, my brother is asperser/autistic, and finds this hotel reassuring to stay in. Away from the red light district, the door staff keep a close eye on things so no dodgy activity goes on in the hotel; plus the door locks are good, so we both feel very safe there.
We on a tight budget and this hotel is significantly cheaper; therefore we not complaining about the very basic facilities or because it's not so plush; the foyer does look good though and the manageress seems genuinely pleased to welcome us. Corridor doors a bit bangy, but once in their rooms you hear hardly noise from residents.
A city centre location, easy walk from Central Station. Of course you get some urban noise but I don't mind, being a cyclist city, traffic noise is a lot less than you'd expect. At night all goes quiet, except the odd rowdy passerby, compared to other big city noise and smog this location in Amsterdam is a pleasant experience; and you will get to hear some wonderful church bells.
It’s in a popular shopping and ‘coffee shop’ area; my brother loves them... so in the street you do get lots of people coming and going until about midnight, however mornings are surprisingly quiet until about 10am. Coffee shops have security staff and owners keeping a very close eye so this area feels even safer at night.
I keep my room clean and tidy, but the bin was emptied every day; my brother is very messy and his room got a going over every day. Oh yes, heating worked excellently, radiators kept my room very cosy.
We had 3 warm days, and those lovely big windows that open fully giving you a sense of freedom and openness, good for people watching or laying on the bed sky watching.
Yes we definitely were going again next year.
