I stayed in this hotel in July of 2013, and since my significant other and I can't stop talking about what a great we had, I figured this place deserved my good word!
First of all, make sure you arrive around check-in time (early afternoon I believe.) We arrived way too early in the morning because of our flight and ended up sleeping on one of the couches in the lobby waiting for our room to be ready. Our mistake! We'll plan better next time for that. Another thing is that the front desk representatives didn't seem very familiar with the area, with one man telling us to go in the complete opposite direction of the city when we showed him a map. Now that that's out of the way...
For the cost and quality, it cannot be beat. Our room was very clean (so important to us!), modern, and comfortable. The room does come with two beds, but we just pushed them together and it really wasn't an issue. The bathroom itself was very clean- we were obsessed with its design. We also loved the little Nespresso machine so much that we ended up purchasing our own when we got home.
We also loved the breakfast offered downstairs (which you have to pay for separately)- it was so fresh and delicious. And we loved eating our breakfast outside on the deck. We also rented bicycles from the hotel, which were invaluable in terms of helping us get around the city.
The location of the hotel is great. It's just outside of the heart of Amsterdam, enough to be a good, not too long morning bike ride and you can stop at an Albert Hein on the way to grab some snacks and drinks for your day. We liked the fact that the hotel was located a little outside of the city because it felt safe and it was quiet for us to settle down at night and wake up to in the mornings. It's also within walking distance to a bus stop, which we used to get to the airport and back. It felt so good to come back to our room at the end of the day and even late at night.
We swear that we will be booking this very hotel on our next trip to Amsterdam!
