Just returned from a four night stay here. We received a really warm welcome, which included a glass of prosecco, from a very pleasant young lady on reception who was extremely helpful and informative. She presented us with a city street map and pointed out various areas which could be of interest to us and also made advance bookings for the Anne Frank House. We were then taken to our fourth floor room by another equally helpful member of staff. In fact all the staff we encountered were friendly and amenable.
The room was on the small side but it was very modern and immaculately clean and quite adequate for our needs. We had no problems with any housekeeping matters and although we never used the coffee making machine we made full use of the kettle which was also provided. When we required more tea bags a phone call to reception resulted in the supply being promptly replenished. Like other reviewers we found the bed to be one of the most comfortable we had ever slept in in a hotel.
Breakfast was not included in our tariff but we were offered a reduction in price and did not regret accepting the offer. There was plenty of choice and the full English was very adequate. We did not use the restaurant in the evening but it must be good because it was extremely busy every night. There is a large variety of restaurants nearby - Italian, Indonesian, Indian, Greek, French and Argentinian. We found the Monte Verde, directly opposite the hotel, to be very reasonable.
Travelling to and from the city centre (and the railway station) is very easy because trams 16 and 24 stop very close to the hotel and umbrellas are provided by the hotel if it is raining or likely to be wet. The Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum are a ten minute walk away and you can take a canal cruise from opposite the Rijksmuseum.
