My birthday treat from wife. I can sort of see the attraction, all very designer and trendy with lovely staff and but has all the ambience of what I imagine would be an up market knocking shop (evidenced by the inclusion of a vibrator in the (mysteriously unpriced) goodies box by the bedside. From the look of the crowd inside and outside the bar on the Saturday, it seems to attract the Amsterdam version of the Footballers' Wives crowd (average heel height a good few inches higher that anywhere else in the area plus the need for bouncers); also rather surprised to discover the neighbouring row of brothels (miles away from the Red Light area).
Frankly, I found the place a bit seedy. But then I may not be the target audience.
Plus points - very good shower, comfy mattress, aforementioned lovely staff, obviously a nice place to "get it together".
Downsides - only one decent teabag! Stupidly thick pillows, inability of wifi to pick up Cricinfo, glass loo door somewhat inadequate as a sound barrier!
