Stayed here for two nights, 18th and 19th october 2012 finding that most of what has been said on tripadvisor to be true.
The Hotel is in a great location for all the places we wanted to visit, just a great shame that the owners of the Hotel have allowed the place to become so run down. OK we did get a good deal on the price from lastminute.com (£163 for two people for two nights) but even at that price there should be some profit left for re-investment,if we had paid more it would be a different story.
We booked a standard double and got a free upgrade for one night(with a bit of a struggle) to a de-luxe as they had no standard rooms available. this sounds ok but having to check out by 11am and then not able to check back in till 2pm was a pain.
First night we stayed in room 9(De-Luxe) overlooking the square which was ok, the music and noise not a bother for us, infact we liked it.The second night we stayed in room 25(standard) up another flight of stairs, which was alot smaller than room 9 and had no view at all.(think Anne Frank) Apart from the room size and TV sizes(20" flat to a 9" portable) we could'nt tell the difference in the grading,i mean who goes to Amsterdam to watch telly anyway. Both rooms reasonably clean but in need of a good makeover.Strip them back to basics (Traveloge style) so much easier to maintain and forget the dodgy jaccuzzi's.Maybe this level of standards are acceptable to the laid back Dutch but we English expect alot better.
The best asset this Hotel has is it's friendly and helpful staff, especially Helen. the morning receptionist.
All said, had a great time in Amsterdam and would consider this Hotel again if only for the location and feel sure that this Hotel will just carry on in the same way whilst there are so many visitors wanting to come to this great city.(succeeding by default)
