We recently stayed two nights at the Hotel Synopsis in Amsterdam before boarding the Celebrity Constellation. The Synopsis is a very comfortable, well located, small Hotel in Amsterdam, close to several attractions as well as the tram. The Hotel is on the Amsterdam Conexxtion shuttle van route from Schipol Airport which makes it very easy to get to.
Our room was spotless, the bath facilities strictly modern, and the room included a computer with free internet access. Breakfast was extensive, totally fresh, and delicious.
My one comment as others have noted is that this really should be considered a B&B as much as a hotel, and as such would have to rank right at the top of B&B's in Amsterdam. We hope to stay there again the next time we return to Holland.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Situated on a quiet canal, Synopsis is surrounded by museums, theatres, restaurants, shopping centers, parking lots and public transportation.

In addition to the already comprehensive standard amenities extra services are possible; for example a full gourmet breakfast can be served in the room. Synopsis creates an oasis of tranquility in elegantly decorated rooms with guaranteed privacy and excellent services, in the midst of the hectic city life. ... more less
